Notes from the Social Media Workshop for Community Radio
with thanks to @fionakelly1 at @RadioFeile hosted by @Nearfm
Turn off automatic reposts from fb to twitter.
Use @ for a person # for a topic.
Follow all local businesses and Dundalk FM shows.
Avoid Big News media and companies.
Use fb and twitter to get guests.
Tweet guests before and after (use pictures and photos).
@Joe Bloggs will be in at 11am to talk about #hisbag.
Don’t just share a fb post – make an effort!
Use & instead of ‘and’.
Don’t post anything with grammatical errors – use full stops, commas and capital letters if appropriate.
Put news on your website and link from twitter.
For larger events target people with fb ads.
Programmers should let the station if they have social media for a show.
