Social Media Strategy for HR
by: Kyle Jones
Do you have a social media strategy for your Mississippi SHRM chapter? The information below lists a few things to think about when thinking of social media. These might apply to either your chapter or your business. If for your chapter – use the word “chapter”. If for your business – use the word “business.” (Yes, pretty simple concept.)
Questions to Ask
- Who are you trying to reach?
- Who are you reaching now? Why are you not reaching who we need to reach?
- Where do your members get their info?
- What are things that other chapters do that are successful? Will those tactics work for your own needs? If not, is there a way this can be adjusted so that it can work?
- Have you branded your chapter?
- Listen and interact online with what is being said about your chapter. Use social media as a means of interacting with those you might not have interacted with prior to now.
- If it works for someone else that doesn’t mean it will work for you. Find what works for your chapter.
- What are we providing for our members?
- Are we thinking outsdie-the-box?
- What gives you an authentic voice?Do you have any techniques that have worked well for you? If so, let us know.
