9 Why Should YOU Use Social Media? Contributing to online conversations about housing cooperatives and the cooperative community in general means that it s necessary to be present where and when they are taking place. Social media gives you the opportunity to easily communicate with members and to spread the word about your co-op to the community-at-large Engage with other cooperative organizations in your community. Food co-ops Credit Unions Other housing co-ops
10 How could you use social media in your community?
11 Communication Tool Internal Social media can be used in addition to newsletter and website for internal communication Announce events Promote co-op member news External Promote events (yard sale etc) Engage with other coop organizations Promote co-ops in the community
12 How do I get started? Define your goals Identify your core audience & their values Determine which social media channel(s) best fit your needs
13 Creating Social Media Goals What are you hoping to achieve by way of social media? -- Growth -- Influence -- Open communication -- Customer service -- Community engagement How will you define your social media success? -- It is as important to measure your results as it is to be present on social media channels. -- Track your monthly or quarterly social media community activity (# of likes, comments, shares, retweets, followers, etc.) to gauge your success and identify channels that may need improvement.
14 Your Core Audience Who would you like to reach? What does this target audience care most about? Where do they typically go to seek valuable content? How do they like to receive information?
15 Which Social Media Channel(s) Fit Your Needs? I like coffee I am drinking #coffee Look at this picture of my coffee Watch me drink coffee
16 Facebook is where people go to support and comment on the things that they like. Content on Facebook is photo, video and link rich to allow for quick interactions Links to external pages with more information are prevalent here Your audience can like and share your posts with their network
22 With only 140 characters to use for posts, Twitter is a great place for brief updates, breaking news, links and photos Consumers widely use Twitter to talk about the things that they are doing at the present, using #hashtags to tag tweets Twitter can also be a great place to find out what colleagues are up to and to network and support them through retweeting. There is a boom in organizations using Twitter as a customer service platform
26 Because YouTube only hosts videos, its audience is interested in visually stimulating and informative video content YouTube watchers spend long lengths of time watching videos and search frequently for the content that best fits their needs YouTube videos are often accessed from posts on other social media channels because they can be embedded into social media posts
29 Setting Up A Twitter Page
30 1 Sign up for an account on Twitter.com
31 Name of Admin for account of Admin for the account Choose a password that will be easy to remember, hard to guess Should be less than 15 characters Simple enough that your audience will remember it As close to your co-op s name as possible; or representative of your co-op s brand
32 2 Confirm your new Twitter account You will receive an at the address you provided that will ask you to confirm your account. Click on the link or button in the to activate your account Voila! You re (almost) ready to tweet!
33 3 Start making connections Twitter has a built in tool that can help you started by suggesting people to follow; including the most popular accounts You can also browse popular accounts by interest (ie: co-op housing) Tip: Follow relevant accounts that provide value to your co-op
34 Tip: Follow organizations and people that you know. For example: Housing co-ops, co-op organizations, local colleges, politicians and community activists, etc.
35 4 Build your profile Add clear, distinguishable profile and header photos that represent your housing co-op (logo/resident shot/photo of co-op) Add a short bio plus your co-op s location and website Tip: Keep your bio as succinct as possible, trying to steer clear of buzzwords and hashtags to make it clean and accessible
36 5 Send your first Tweet Tip: You only get 140 characters to get your message across so remember to be smart (and witty but not too witty) with your words, without being too casual or using shorthand
38 The pound (#) sign, or hash, turns any word or group of words that directly follow it into a searchable link. This allows you to organize content and track discussion topics based on those keywords The following is an example of a tweet using hashtags: October is #CoopMonth and NCB is almost ready to launch our annual #Coop100. Stay tuned and #GoCoop
39 Setting Up A Facebook Page
40 Personal Page Business Page Used to connect with people you know in real life.

45 4 Upload your profile picture Tip: Your profile picture is the visual representation of your co-op that will appear when people search for you. Be certain that your photo represents your co-op properly. Common business photos feature the business logo or façade.
46 5 Upload a Cover Photo Tip: Your cover photo is what viewers will first see when they click on your Page. Include your logo, something related to your co-op, an upcoming event/celebration or a holiday. Most importantly, your cover photo should be visually appealing.
47 6 Build your audience your members and partners Tell your personal Facebook friends Put a link to your page on your website Announce the page in your newsletter Support other co-ops in your community and beyond on their Facebook pages List your Facebook URL in all communication pieces

To ensure that your posts are successful they should be: Short: Posts between characters get about 60% more likes, comments and shares Visual: Photo albums, pictures and videos get 180%, 120% and 100% more engagement respectively
49 Like Share Comment Social media engagement has three important actions that spark and ignite conversations within your follower community: Like: The most simple of all levels of engagement, liking a post simply entails clicking the like link on LinkedIn, Facebook and YouTube; or the star icon on Twitter marked favorite Share: By clicking on the share link on LinkedIn, Facebook and YouTube; or the retweet link on Twitter, followers can share your post with all of their followers and friends Comment: The solid gold of social media not only because they are the conversation, but also because they are more heavily weighted on algorithms that give posts more viewing potential on some social media sites
50 The of Like Comment Share Each like, comment, share tweet, retweet, etc. on social media channels spreads the overall social media reach of your co-op throughout your followers social media network as well. Your co-op s X Your followers = followers = 300 friends = 200 Overall social media reach for your co-op = 60,000!!!!
51 Dealing With Negative Comments NEVER delete a negative comment unless it is considered defamatory, obscene, pornographic or similarly inappropriate Attempt to understand the root of the issue in order to properly resolve it Address the posters concerns as soon as possible and assure them that you will work diligently to reconcile the issue
