How To Create, Curate & Connect People Who Are Fired Up For Change

How To Create, Curate & Connect People Who Are Fired Up For Change | AtDotCom Social media |

This piece is from Fastcompany it's from The World Vision Activism Network. (October 2012) I selected it because there are some great takeaways whether you have a community or are starting one from scratch.


When you build a brand, one of the most important measures of success is the actual engagement and connection of your loyal customers, followers, supporters, partners, fans and friends--your community.

The digital age and 24/7 connectivity, social platforms are forcing companies to find new and compelling ways to keep up with daily communication and connection with the people who matter the most

Here are a few highlights:

Create a long-term relationship

**You must understand your audience's interessts

**Use the most popular form of communication

**You have to be available and ready to interact to keep them actively engaged.

. Listen to people

**Pay attention to where and how your key people want to communicate, what they want to talk about and what they actualy do.

**Build the community they demand - use posters, art, videos and whatever connects with your audience on a digital platform that is eaily accessed & shred through a space where your audience is already spending time

Create it & Continually Influence Your Audience

**You must be an active participant on a regular basis


**By continually sharing, creating, leading and converse with the people you want to influence to establish a long-lasting relationship.

**By staying actively engaged, you will become easy to relate to and your audience will learn more about you, creating a closer relationship

How to Understand, Identify & Engage with Social Influencers [Infographic]

How to Understand, Identify & Engage with Social Influencers [Infographic] | AtDotCom Social media |

I chose this infographic and article from Blackbaud because it helps you go from social media to social business. It was written for non-profits but it definitely applies to any business as well.

By understanding how to evaluate people by their degree of influence and their ability to help change behavior in others can be invaluable to you and your organization.

**It's also important to use this information to understand how you and your organization fit into this mix. They say knowledge is power, once you have a clearer picture, you can shift what you're doing and take your business or cause to the next level for greater results.


"Understanding the Value of Your Social Media Influencers: How to Identify and Empower Those Who Can Engage an Entire Community!

(Download the White Paper Today!)"

Here are some highlights:

**Learn how to use the information your consitiuents are sharing to attract more people to your mission, campaign.

**Learn how to analyze your database and assign social scores to engagers that represents their ability to interact with and influence others across their online networks

**Based on the social score you assign to these individuals, you can then segment them into one of four categories, each of which plays a diferent role on social networks, relevant to your business

Here are the categories:

Key Influencers - They have a powerful impact not only the people they know but also others they don't know. Their posts are widely spread and shared by more people than many other people


Engagers - These people have well-established social networks and are strong influencers of people they know personally

Multichannel Consumers - They enjoy keeping up with social media conent and occasionally participate. Their influence is not a dominent part of their persona

Standard Consumers These engagers read and watc updates more than they create new content or make comments. They are more influenced by family and friends.
