In broadstrokes the advise I gave was:
1. Use hashtags/tagging system
2. Be authentic (a) act as though you are having a conversation (b) balance politics with what you do personally (sports coach, entrepreneur, etc)
3. Quality (updates must be valuable & interesting)
4. Enagage (a) comment on other posts/retweet (b) respond, respond, respond
5. Make content sharable & Share other people’s content
6. Use the right tools (optimize each message for each sm channel)
7. Measurable Success
I’m not looking to set up a streaming photo op plan, but rather capture the feeling of the community and put this politician at the forefront of information for the area. This would include council business, tourism, arts, youth, seniors, parks/outdoor space & awards/special events, Some ideas I have, outside of FaceBook & Twitter, are Four Square – promoting whatyou can do in town, Pinterest – behind the scenes of being Mayor. Closer to election time we will be expanding that to include Google+, Google+ Hangouts. We’re starting out slowly for him to get used to the technology, maybe make a few mistakes and then lead into the actual plan.
Any other areas, ideas that you would want your politicians to do?
