“In her presentation, De Boone went into detail about the five keys she believes are important to creating an online brand to promote your business,” said the Chapter President.
These five keys include:
Research: Make sure the information is correct; Buy a domain name if possible to protect the brand; Ensure the logo and images are consistent; Who is the target market?; Who is an ideal client?; Stay current with site rules.
Strategy: Be consistent and frequent with the requirements; Only release content that promotes the individual as an expert; Regulate images, remove tags and posts by others that could contradict images; Be selective of the information that is pushed out to create a sense of “want to know” and can be redistributed; Say positive.
Implementation: Ads, contests, engagement polls, video, offers and promotions; Connect all social media tools so it’s promoting the same message.
Measurement: What is working? What is the highest engagement? Utilize measurement tools to get measurement data that shows what works.
Money: Third-party applications that can used to create a cash register for a site; Take advantage of the tools out there to capitalize on promotion of the brand/site such as Gumdrop and PayPal.
“We also discussed the evolution of relationships as dictated by social media sites,” said the Chapter President.
“De’s presentation was powerful and eloquent. We look forward to her visiting us again in the near future and I will forward De’s information to the other Local Chapters.”
