This session defines the responsibilities and objectives of community management, tackling everything from determining brand voice to understanding social ROI.
Part 2: Timeless Tenets of Non-Gratuitous Social Behavior focuses on best practices to engage with your brand’s community through various social media channels. We’ll share tips on encouraging conversations, as well as when (and how) to promote your brand. And we’ll discuss actions you should avoid to prevent angering your friends/fans/followers, not to mention the channel natives? This session offers basic behavioral advice on how you should act in social media.
Part 3: Hit The Ground Running explores the business nature of social media and how to create a scope of work (SOW) and budget requests, building on the basics you learned in Part 1. We’ll explore the terminology to use to successfully sell social media to the boss. And we’ll take a close look at the social media channels discussed in the SOW.
Part 4: Content, Reputation and Hard Core Listening Hacks looks at one of the pillars of community management: content. Everything that publishers publish and users generate is content. In this session, you’ll learn how to leverage your community’s content for the purpose of reputation monitoring, sharing and creating your own content.
Part 5: Finding, Sharing & Engaging In Themed Conversations digs deep into the importance of sharing, and how to find content to share with your community.

Part 6: Dominate Distribution With Paid Tactics dissects the paid side of earned social channels. In this session, you’ll learn how social channels limit what those outside your community can see – and how you can combat that. We’ll also examine ways to dramatically improve organic distribution of content to your existing fans and followers. You’ll leave this session loaded with best practices and tactics that will take your distribution to the next level.
Part 7: Community Crisis Management is your go-to guide for successfully navigating the rough seas of social media. Unfortunately, the same community you’ve cultivated and cared for can sometimes turn against your brand or each other. In this session, we’ll dissect social media crisis management from the top down. We kick off with tips for establishing a crisis protocol and implementing house rules for branded social spaces, move swiftly into best practices for kicking people out of your community, and wrap it up with tips for maintaining a cool head and a steady blood pressure.
