Good engagement templates:
Call to action - "Read this for more information about the power outage"
Question - "Did you know what caused the power outage?"
Interesting fact and number - "Over 3,000 students couldn't turn on the lights yesterday"
If you have a link use a link shortener
Avoid caps-locked words
Avoid including your site's name
Better to use a lede than a story title
Include useful information
Good content is important!
Share what your readers care about.
Even if it isn't something you wrote.

Consider an Editors' blog
Make life easier
Link shortener accounts
Follow your network
Talk with others.
Be a node
Serve unmet needs
Spin off verticals
Ask for feedback

I vs We
What do you want to accomplish?
Set a Social Media Strategy
Not just "your" plan
Do it together.
Who are you reaching?
Who do you
Define your voice and style
Different per platform?
Who will represent you?
Who will be held accountable?
