With the shifting media landscape during this crisis, it’s important for your entire team to have clear guidelines on how to share messages online.

Here are some tips and considerations that can prevent sticky situations later on:

1. Create a code of conduct for your page.

2. Have a clear outline of what to post. Determine a clear outline of what can and cannot be posted before you begin, such as images below a certain quality or color, or if you can post graphics and where to source them from.

3. Engage followers with dialogue.

4. Respond to everything, as much as you can. Show your consumers there’s someone on the other side of the screen reading and engaging with them by responding to their comments, especially if they’re expressing frustrations about finding it difficult to reach you through your other lines of communication.

So the question is: Will the hype last? 

According to stats the number of people quitting TikTok is just as noteworthy as the number of people signing up.

TikTok can be a great way for innovative brands to reach a very specific demographic (69% of users are 16-24 years old). And with Gen Z at full command, TikTok can be an invaluable source of insight into the tastes and motivations of the next generation on social.

What to do in 2020?

If Gen Z isn’t your target audience you’re better off investing your time and resources elsewhere in 2020. Smart pros. should always keep a close eye on new and emerging networks.

2. Use new video formats to build community

Video is still top performing content format on social media.

3. Experiment on other growing niche platforms

WHAT TO DO IN 2020 ON DIGITALPR.

– Use public feeds to increase reach

Use public feeds to build brand awareness and promote discovery with broad audiences.

Don’t rely on organic social alone—lean on social advertising and influencer marketing to increase your reach.

– Offer value in private channels

People go to private channels to escape noisy and impersonal public feeds.

Have a clear purpose for engaging one-to-one on private channels, and ensure you’re adding value in every conversation.

Use a blend of automation and human connection to build deep relationships on private channels.

Bots are best for addressing the most common customer queries, but real people still need to handle the more nuanced and complex conversations.

– Focus on advocacy, not algorithms

Find the time to source content and make it easy for employees to share it across social media.

MEDIA RELATIONS GOOD PRACTICES AT A GLANCE!

While some communicators have the benefit of focusing solely on social, the majority of us must take a mar-comm approach for our organizations, merging public relations with social media management.
I must clear up the lack of understanding as to how the media works—everyone seems to be winging it. A basic understanding of journalists’ priorities would serve our professional communities and help educate the newest entrants of this industry.
A simple approach to improving press releases and pitches is the following: be SMART.
S: Strategic Stories that are well planned and developed.
M: Meaningful to the recipient (not your boss!).
A: Accurate (in facts and newsworthiness), distributed to media lists that are…
R: Relevant.
T: Targeted.
Email and social media have provided a zillion corners to cut. As a mental exercise, avoid leaning on your digital laurels for once and pretend that you are going to call someone—interrupting their day—and have 10 seconds to make your pitch. That was in the old times, but still a good memento to think.

START TREATING SOCIAL MEDIA AS ANY OTHER PART OF YOUR BUSINESS!

Every single company that wants to be on the real market understands the potential of social media and is present there.

A common mistake is the general idea that the success in the social media is only the presence. The consequence is that they put wrong people to deal with the social media.

It’s impossible to have results in any domain without following some rules and doing exactly what are you asked for. You can’t let a doctor performing a surgery without years of practice, but you expect that your secretary will bring crowds of new customers from social media.

As in any other successful business, if you want results you need to have the best people doing the job.

Stop wondering why social media isn’t working for you and treat it as you do with any other job in your company.
