Where to start with Social Media

Blog by Runway Digital Capt’n, Samantha Bell.

These are words that were added to Nikki White’s new online business community for Natural Therapists – a wonderful new initiative – and are posted here for those who are new to Social Media or possibly those caught in doing too much, unfocused work in Social Media for their businesses. Enjoy:

“Remember that people want to contact you via different online sites – Facebook, Twitter, email, your website etc. Work out who you wish to attract, what sites they use, and how often you want to post on these sites. Look for automated tools such as Buffer and plan an amount of time each month to plan relevant topics you want to write about (or find information on) to provide value to your audience.

A big advantage is having someone update Social Media for you. This is where a virtual assistant can come in handy or even a family member / friend who can help out. Don’t get too exhausted trying to update loads of sites. Update settings to send you an email if you don’t log in regularly. (If you log in to Facebook / Twitter etc regularly then turn these settings off – don’t double up!).

Enjoy engaging with people through these sites – get it organised so you don’t feel exhausted.”

Hope this helps. Get in touch for more support via Twitter: Runway Digital or Samantha Bell.

Learning Social Media and gaining business benefits: Digital Treasure Hunts

Learning Social Media and gaining business benefits: Digital Treasure Hunts

The Runway Digital crew has been hectic of late! We’ve refined and refined the Digital Treasure Hunts services and products ready for lift-off. Druuum roll please…

The Digital Treasure Hunts’ services include:

* Hunts for large events (3 hours, 100+ people),

* One-day Hunts for groups of 15-60, and

* Company Hunts – many one-day Digital Treasure Hunts for relevant teams and departments, over your desired time-period, combined with ongoing competitions to embed learning.

* Optional extras include filming of the event, additional Social Media experts to further enhance learning, and advanced techniques for public events and more advanced users.

Company Hunts include an Social Media audit providing insight to your organisation’s level of Social Media understanding, your company’s online risks and opportunities – including how to improve Twitter, Facebook and other sites; your company’s online influence network (which is often yet to be tapped). We also tailor content to include your Social Media policy, work with you to decide an appropriate order on the training timetable (with respect to key priorities and urgent groups) and design a cross-company competition that has everyone engaged.

Pricing starts at $12,000 for a one day Hunt for 15 people.

Our vision is to bring Social Media to businesses in a way that delivers bottom-line results and has people learn new communication methods in a fun and productive way.

What’s exciting is that we’ve incorporated the workshops we’ve run successfully many times (Online Content Development and Growing your Online Audience), with a focus on business benefits, interactivity, and fun learning. Come on, come Hunting with us!
