“social media,” right?

Who am I?

overly social individual who came
up at a time when social media was
taking off.
I’m a story-teller
Social media is my current story-telling
My experience is with helping
organizations tell their unique story
What is a Facebook PAGE you
(actually) LIKE?
What do you like about them?
A page could use some help if…
• One long stream of
• Off-Brand
• Too personal to the poster,
not the business
• Oversharing
• Posts are not consistent
• Voice is not consistent
• Posts look amateur
• Spelling errors
• Inside jokes
• Too many #hashtags

space that you want with
your messages and your

Sometimes, I can be a broken record.
“Don’t be the ostrich with your head in the sand”
“In social media there is NOOOOO silver bullet”
“Have a balanced diet of vegetables and candy”
“Creativity takes courage. Be courageous”
“Imitation really is the sincerest form of flattery”
Above all, the TWO most important
thing when managing a social
media channel are…
“Social media is a strategy”
“Social media is a job for an intern”
“Social media is free and easy”
“We don’t need a social media plan”
Goals, appearance, LIKES, content
streams and helpful tools.
What is your page’s GOAL?
No really, why are you here?
What should your social media
page LOOK like?
Sisters. Not distant cousins.
What do I look for?
How do you get more LIKES,
FOLLOWS on your page?
