Social Media for Crisis Messaging

From hurricanes and tornadoes to wildfires, co-ops are harnessing the power of social media to reach out to members during times of crisis.

 

“Ignore using social media for crisis communications at your own peril,” cautioned Chris Powell, director of public relations at Albemarle Electric Membership Corp.

 

“Members not only expect real-time information, they expect to be able to respond back to it,” said Powell, adding that members always have the option of creating their own sites offering positive or negative feedback. “Within five years I expect social media to be the dominant force in crisis communications.”...

How to become an Online Influencer - Microsoft Business UK

How to become an Online Influencer - Microsoft Business UK | influences of digital media in modern society | Scoop.it

Being an online influencer is not usually the goal of a startup, not initially in the thinking stage, but in this modern, social media-heavy world, becoming influencer, or indeed, popular on platforms like Twitter and LinkedIn is becoming ever so more important.

There is much thrown around online about how to approach and attract influencers, and how to become an influencer. When achieving such status, it’s important to been seen an industry equal and a resource. Then, when achieved, you would no longer be seen as a nuisance constantly broadcasting your own agenda and business, but hoping others will relay your messages.

However, those who want to be an online influencer, will have to understand that it won’t happen overnight, the truth is that it doesn’t happen easily. It takes hard work. The difference between the people who make it and those who don’t, is dedication and wisely targeted efforts.

Being an influencer yourself is often overlooked as a way to engage with other influences. As mentioned, it takes time. But it is worth it. There is also financial benefit to becoming an influencer, as people with increased value can charge more for services. It’s ultimately a win-win if you, and your business, have the dedication.

You can become a source of knowledge, a trend-setter, and valuable to your peers. You don’t have to settle for the role of squeaky agenda-pushing wheel. Building strong relationships and trust with your peers is essential in influencing their decisions. Also having a centric attitude towards those that you work with can be as beneficial.

It is vital to listen more and talk less. Don’t talk yourself out of a ‘sales’. By listening to peers, managers, those in the industry, you can create a better formula to make recommendations that will have a larger impact on both of personal perception and of your goals.

Being aware when your peers are struggling, and the need help is the perfect opportunity to offer help. Offering assistance on a fairly consistent basis will show you are invested in making your industry a success, you are not simply looking to pull ahead of the pack.
