Social Media Conference Washington, D.C.

Michelle Bond, VISTA Project Manager and Danielle Ricks, Social Media Specialist of Campaign Consultation augmented our corporate social media knowledge by recently attending the Social Media for Government conference in Washington, DC.

Here are three key “take-aways”:

1. Develop a Strategic Plan – Know your mission, your audience and what you want to accomplish in the digital space.

2. Establish a Communications Plan – Use established principles and policies to open the door to new social media tactics and procedures.

3. Take Risks – Because you don’t know what you don’t know, try out various social media strategies and tools. Be fearless and adjust approaches along the way until you get the results that you want.

Danielle Ricks states …

“The Social Media train is leaving the station. You can jump on board and take the ride or be left behind. But either way, this train is moving forward with or without you so you might as well get on board!”

… good advice to all of us! Please let Campaign Consultation, Inc. know if you would like our help developing your Social Media plan. …Learn More
