SOCIAL MEDIA STRATEGY & OUTLETS INVENTORY •
Social Media Characteristics o
2 Way Conversation
Interactive and Sharable
Social Media Tips o
There is not one way to do Social Media. It’s more important to jump in and post stuff than it is to be so strategic that you miss opportunities to share bits of information in a timely manner.
Connect with people. It’s a SOCIAL medium.
Post unique, interesting and fun things that are relevant to your organization’s Mission, Work and Thought-Leader perspective.
Review your Core Identity elements
Review your organization’s Priority Goals for the year or month or immediate needs
Ideally, your Social Media Strategy should be part of your overall Communication & Promotional Plan for the year. Be mindful of how the calendars overlap so you can make the most of your communication opportunities.
Review your Primary Audiences. These are also who you are trying to reach through Social Media. Pick Outlets that are meaningful and used by those audiences. Secondary Audiences and their preferred Outlets should be a lower priority if addressed at all.

Creating a Social Media Strategy •
What are your specific goals for using Social Media? o
Do you have any quantitative goals that you are trying to achieve? Why?
Include fundraising goals if you plan to try fundraising Outlets
Who is in charge of the Social Media Strategy? o
Who is allowed to post?
Who does the actual work with the different Outlets? Identify the best people for each Outlet. You can do this during the Outlet Review below.
What is your Voice? o
Social Media voice is best if it is coming from individuals and has a genuine feel to it. But, what are the overarching guidelines? Humorous, thought provoking, serious, authoritative, youthful?
Create a Social Media Policy o
What can’t you post?
Who should people ask if they are in doubt?
What is your policy for responding to comments about your organization in the world of Social Media?
How can people use their own personal Social Media Outlets to promote the organization? What shouldn’t they do? Brief people on their responsibilities.
Capacity & Frequency o
Plan to engage with whatever main Outlets you choose on a weekly basis
Which Outlets will be actively used and which ones will just be used for presence/listing? You can decide this during the Outlet Review below.
