Byron Greens | Facebook presence - from 0 to 900 followers in 8 weeks with a focus on local election

Byron Greens | Facebook presence - from 0 to 900 followers in 8 weeks with a focus on local election | Christine Harris-Smyth | Scoop.it

Facebook and Twitter allowed The Greens to engage with a broader community leading up to the 2012 local elections. Mayoral candidate Simon Richardson (now Mayor) recognised that Greens were on the nose in Byron Shire and other established Greens strongholds. 

 

Richardson briefed us to be inclusive and social media activity included local and environmental issues steering clear of more controversial Federal issues. 

 

Controversial local issues were discussed online and this was a good opportunity for the mayoral candidate to engage in substantive conversations with the electorate.

 

A key component of our messaging was the multicolour treatment of GREEN as seen on this tshirt which was coupled with a word map of local areas of the Byron Shire to reinforce inclusiveness. Our intent was to celebrate diversity and to attract those in the Shire who are not rusted on Greens.

Margaret Mahy online presence

Margaret Mahy online presence | Christine Harris-Smyth | Scoop.it

Margaret Mahy is a much loved author who died in July of 2012.

 

I am a friend of the Mahy family and established an online presence for the family to take ownership of the memory of their mother and grandmother.

 

This is to some extent a defensive strategy with the family owned Facebook presence as the goto online destination for aggregated information about Margaret Mahy in anticipation of a more substantive online presence in the near to mid term future.

Byron Greens - simple website created to support successful 2012 local election campaign

Byron Greens - simple website created to support successful 2012 local election campaign | Christine Harris-Smyth | Scoop.it

The navigation and design of the existing local Greens site was not set up to focus on the simple messaging needed for the election campaign.

 

Working with designer Glenn Stace we established a simple site that worked well with the social media strategy we also implemented.

 

We had excellent feedback from the community on both the content and the design of the online properties. Our brief was to position The Greens as an inclusive party interested in all the concerns of the Byron Shire community.

Reverse Garbage - Sydney, NSW - Business Development - increased turnover circa 20% year on year, developed brand and stakeholder reach, raised profile in mainstream and not-for-profit sector

Reverse Garbage - Sydney, NSW - Business Development - increased turnover circa 20% year on year, developed brand and stakeholder reach, raised profile in mainstream and not-for-profit sector | Christine Harris-Smyth | Scoop.it

When I commenced work with Reverse Garbage in 2009 the company had a relatively low profile, was in the red and had no strategic corporate relationships and both ad hoc branding and a weak education program.

 

By the time I left in early 2012 Reverse Garbage had online followers totally 35,000 (built from a base of none), a renewed and consistent branding approach, a robust education program with a growth rate of circa 300% in the 2011/2012 year, established relationships with corporates including Disney, NAB and Optus along with a significant media profile.

What to do with your old TV

What to do with your old TV | Christine Harris-Smyth | Scoop.it
Recycling co-operative Reverse Garbage has been inundated with TVs, spokeswoman Christine Harris-Smyth said.


“Not only did we have an enormous influx of massive CRT TVs from late 2009, we also had an enormous influx of the huge cabinets people kept them in,” she said.


“The idea of re-use and CRT televisions is fairly redundant with the exception of vintage models where people with particular skills and aesthetics might choose to collect or adapt these models. The reality is manually taking a CRT television apart is problematic. There are toxins, glass etc.,” she said.


She said ethical recycling, in most cases, is the best option.

Reverse Garbage and COFA move into Taylor Square Darlinghurst

Reverse Garbage and COFA move into Taylor Square Darlinghurst | Christine Harris-Smyth | Scoop.it
Taylor Square will soon hum to the sound of rubbish recycling and artists at work with two new creative tenants taking year-long leases in the vacant T2 building.


Reverse Garbage’s spokeswoman Christine Harris-Smyth said the Darlinghurst location was a “dream’‘, where the organisation could work with local art schools, residents, businesses and Sydney Council to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill in creative ways and to educate people on the potential of garbage.
