New Year’s Resolution: Develop and Implement a Social Media Strategy
Or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Tweet…In Just 15 Minutes Per Day*
This month, we will provide an introduction to many current and popular social media tools – including blogging, Twitter, Yammer, LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube, and Flickr – to help discuss how you (your unit, department, or team) could develop a strategy for the effective implementation and support of social media tools to meet your business goals (read: New Year’s resolution).
Throughout the discussion, we will provide case study feedback from a recent social media training pilot that involved the introduction and implementation of the tools listed above. Please note: the business goals of the pilot group are likely unique, although we will discuss how your audience, content, team/individual responsibilities, tools, and workflow should all be taken into consideration before attempting a successful social media strategy.
There are currently many roadblocks to the successful research, development and implementation of a social media strategy; we hope the takeaway from this meeting is a roadmap – with shortcuts – for how you could reach your individual business goals. Additionally, we will be providing resources on the tools discussed, how to integrate each into a cohesive strategy, and how to communicate the value (and real cost) of social media.
We will live-tweet at #HarvardSocial03, but you will need to pre-register laptops for wireless internet access: https://autoreg.fas.harvard.edu/
