Social Media Management & Measurement for Faculty & Staff
Transcript of Social Media Management & Measurement for Faculty & Staff
Questions to consider while using Twitter (and other tools to help you analyze them)
Have to manage multiple social media accounts?
Helps you manage multiple Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn accounts. You can also use it for Google+, YouTube and many other channels.
Schedule advanced posts for multiple accounts.
Here's what a Hootsuite pre-schedule looks like:
Includes a URL shortener and many measurement tools.
Who is on your page
Returning visitors vs. new visitors
How do I manage all these social media accounts and how do I measure my success?
Tip: Comment Back To The Clusters – When you get a lot of response from followers, like during an event, don’t worry about responding to every single person. Ask yourself where your organizational voice is needed most. For example, focus on the posts that have the highest number of comments, shares, and responses.
Use the built-in analytics tools each social media channel provides to quickly find the posts with the highest engagement. Focus your blood and sweat on the users who are engaging.
How far did your tweet travel?
Which countries saw your tweet?
How many people clicked the link in your tweet?
What traffic was sent to your website?
What's happening with your tweet now?
Who unfollowed you after you tweeted?
If you work with a team of people to manage a Page, you'll want to take advantage of the admin role functionality. Each role comes with a varying number of responsibilities.
If you are using Hootsuite, you can also use it's integrated analytics tools.
TweetReach tells you how far your tweet traveled. Copy and paste your tweet-or part of it-and do a search.
Twitter Map is a useful tool to see where in the world Twitter users retweeted or mentioned your tweet.
Bit.ly is a popular address shortener that provides statistics. Awe.sm has more advanced analytics, including integration with Google Analytics to enable conversion tracking.
If you use Google Analytics to track your website's performance, view the "social" section. Here you can see what traffic came from Twitter.
Monitter is a real-time Twitter tracking tool that displays tweets containing words you specify.
TweetEffect displays your recent tweets and shows whether you gained or lost followers around the time of the tweet
Go to the left side of the screen and select "Publisher"
Select the channel(s) for this post
Finally, click "Schedule" at the bottom right of the schedule box.

Addressing Your Objectives
As mentioned in Getting Started Prezi, Facebook is excellent for increasing attendance at events.
Increasing student attendance at events
Share and discuss news about your discipline
Provide an outlet for student publication
As discussed in the Getting Started Prezi, blogs are excellent for this. Use the analytics provided by your blogging software to measure popularity of student publications.
Develop relationships with alumni and/or donors
In the Getting Started Prezi, we discussed the value of LinkedIn groups for this goal. Beyond the analytics tools that LinkedIn provides, plan to use other methods to measure your efficacy. For example, keep spreadsheets documenting alumni involvement in your department and work with University Development to track the root of donations.
Provide a model for students or using social media professionally
Follow best practices and use the integrated analytics tools to track steady growth in all indicators.
Listen to and participate in conversations about my department
Again, this depends on which channel(s) you have chosen to use. Use analytics tools to determine your impact.
Be sure you have a measurement plan before launching.
Visitors to your website via social media channels
Note: Probably the most important indicator - do people read what you post?
But if you don't have enough qualified followers, there won't be anyone to click your links.
Note: High clicks. likes and shares. This post ran as an ad for a week.
Facebook does not yet have a mechanism for confirming attendance, so you will need to use your best judgement in evaluating the data that is available. Available data: Number of people invited, number of people who RSVPed yes or maybe, number of people who shared the event with others, etc. If you used a Facebook ad, even more data is available.
Tip: keep your results in a spreadsheet
to compare with future events.
How you measure this will depend on which channel(s) you selected to use.
If you are using a blog that's integrated into your sonoma.edu website, use Google Analytics.
Google Analytics is also the best way to how well Google+ is working...
and to see other information about how your website is working with social media and beyond. Such as:
Track your performance per time slot in a spreadsheet to see what times perform best on which days. Also, be sure to leave at least a few hours between posts to avoid cannibalizing the reach of previous posts.
How do you know if a post is popular?
Having more likes, shares, and comments than usual is usually a good indication that the post is popular.
Is there such a thing as too much engagement?
It can sometimes feel that way.
Responding to your followers in a timely manner (in social media, this is FAST!)
can make or break your social media efforts.
Hootsuite and other management tools can help measure most of these indicators, as well.
Free apps are available for your mobile device.
Put post content in the text box
Add a link. Hootsuite will shorten it.
After setting the date and time you want, click "Schedule"
Use the paperclip icon to upload images
Click the calendar icon
Remember, regardless of channel, and no matter how excellent your organization and analytics are, you will need a critical mass of the right followers in order to gain traction.
Before we get to the Management & Measurement...

Another reason to give at least someone else admin access: to be prepared for a worst-case scenario.
There are many tools with varying plans and costs from free to quite expensive to help you set up posts in advance to multiple channels.
These include Hootsuite, Tweetdeck, Buffer, and many others.
Hootsuite is the most popular and we will focus on it.
However, using Hootsuite or any third party application to manage Facebook is not recommended. Instead, use the scheduling service within Facebook.
As mentioned in Getting Started with Social Media for Faculty and Staff
Have other administrators
Managing Your Social Media is Ongoing
Schedule some posts in advance
Tips to Make it Easier:
Have a plan for responding to comments
Note: If you manage multiple Twitter accounts and/or multiple LinkedIn Groups, Hootsuite is almost a necessity.
The roles available to change are manager and moderator.
Facebook defines several roles: manager, content creator, moderator, advertiser and insights analyst.
Step 1: Go to your Google+ profile
Google+ has Owner and Manager roles. You can also customize roles.
Step 2: Select the page you want to manage
Step 3: Go to your Managers
When you have a management role, the default is to send you daily notifications of group activity.
You can change this in your group settings.
Type the person's name to find them.
Twitter does not have admin roles, only access and control through the account. Make sure give the account information to the people you want to help admin the page.
Automating your entire social presence isn't recommended. (You're not a robot—you're a person!) But, the ability to schedule posts can save you time, and ensure your Page is covered during traditional downtimes like evenings and weekends.
Listen to followers for feedback
Listening may take some investigating. Some of these tools may help:
Tagboard - http://tagboard.com/
You can create lists that allows you to organize your favorite Twitter users into groups. You can then review tweets from just members of these lists. This helps you stay organized when are following a lot of users.
Search a hashtag and find what people are saying across multiple channels.
Currently aggregates hashtags from Facebook, Twitter, Vine, Google+, Instagram, and App.net.
Organize who you listen to in lists

Hyper Alerts is a free tool to receive free email reports of posts and comments on a Facebook Page. You don’t have to be an administrator of the page to get the email alerts, and you can have as many subscriptions as you want. You can get the alerts within minutes, or a digest every hour, day, week or month.
Hyper Alerts is a free service.
Google Alerts are free and are linked through your gmail account. These tell you when things you care about are mentioned anywhere online. Set up alerts for things said about trends in your department/field or even your name.
Now that you've seen how to manage these platforms, it is important that you understand how to measure your success. Otherwise, you may discover you are putting your efforts in the wrong places, or even wasting time and energy.
If you're using ads, see the count of views that are
(your Page's fans) and paid by hovering over the "X people saw this post" link below one of your posts.
Similar to TweetEffect, This tool helps see who unfollowed you on Twitter overall.
If you have multiple administrators, consider using Google Spreadsheets. They are easier than Excel Spreadsheets for sharing access to multiple people using multiple machines .
A simple Google Calendar or spreadsheet works well for this.
Using an editorial calendar is an important part of keeping track of your social media presence.

Social media editorial calendars create a cohesive layer to a content strategy that bridges the benefits of:
Accountability: Put it in writing where everyone can see it, touch it and live it.
Commitment: Stamp a date on it, chances are, you will get it done.
Accomplishment: Checking it off the list feels good and also ties back to accountability.
Planning: Big picture first, start at the year, month, week and day.
Creativity: Mapping out the topics first will help free up space for creativity and inspiration.
Trends: Tie in the topics with keyword research and boost the SEO strategy.
Editorial Calendar Benefits
Measurement: Watching the results in growth and also what is popular in content via tools such as Google Analytics will give you valuable information for future editorial ideas.
You will also need to keep track of your evergreen content. You can also use a spreadsheet to track that.
If lists are public (without a lock), you can follow others' lists and other users can follow yours.
