Looking forward to interviewing +Eric T. Tung and +Mac Guidera this morning about how to get the most out of collaboating with your team on social media.
 
ARE YOU IN HOUSTON? ATTEND LIVE https://www.facebook.com/events/112230442496818/


Social media isn’t just for marketing. Research says that 47% of HR professionals said that employee engagement is the most important challenge at their organization. And according to Gallup, only 13 percent of employees consider themselves engaged at work.

This month, we are going to take an in-depth look at how to use social media to create collaborative and engaged work environments and empower employees to become your best social media outlet. We will discuss what is in it for employees to participate in an internal or external social media program and how to get employees to share company messages in external social media.

No matter the size (big or small) of your company or organization, we will talk about how to increase engagement. If you are an agency, consultant or a recruiter, this will be great information for your own teams and clients. And even if you work alone, we will cover how to make your own team using collaboration tools.

We will discuss:
- How to create an internal culture that collaborate
- What tools you can use to make it happen
- How to get employees to participate in social platforms
- What employee guidelines you need for social media
- Types of training employees need to use social media at workg
- What if your organization is ultra-small or even solo, can you use these ideas?

Looking forward to the Social Media Breakfast of Houston in the New Year on January 8th. Video is my weak spot and my #1 goal for 2016 is to master it.
 
In this summer's earning call, Facebook Founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerburg, said, “If you go back ten years, most of how people communicated was through text. We’re entering into a period where that’s increasingly going to be video and we’re seeing huge growth there.”

And the numbers show it.  In November 2015, Facebook reported 8 billion daily video views (and in April 2015, the same stat was 4 billion daily video views). So the arc of this is very clear.  We started with text and moved to images and now we're heading to video.  

Our speakers will share their experiences and cover all these questions and more:

As video dominates, what are the new rules?  
How do you make videos that succeed in a world of autoplay?  
Where do live broadcasting tools like Periscope, Facebook Live Video andBlab.im fit into this?  
What about Google Hangouts on Air and YouTube, how do these older platforms fit in? 
When should you post something to Twitter as a GIF?  
Why is posting something as a native video important (vs. posting it on a 3rd party site)?

Twitter is a powerful news and engagement platform, but sometimes it seems it is harder than ever to authentically connect there. However, contrary to some media reports, Twitter isn’t dead and can still be a vital part of a digital strategy.

Among others, we will discuss:

1.) Why it's important to have an amazing Twitter profile and what yours should include
2.) How to get on the radar with industry experts and journalists
3.) Mistakes that some people and companies make on Twitter and how to avoid them
4.) How to curate and create interesting content for Twitter
5.) Which tweets should be automated and which should not
6.) Tools that will help you grow and use Twitter more effectively
New features of Twitter and how to take advantage of them

I have found, by hard experience, that this is completely true. The ability to make quick decisions is HUGE.
 
What is the biggest mistake most small businesses make? The answer may surprise you!
Did you know that there is only one thing holding your business back? You might be surprised to learn that it isn't funding or lack of customers. It's called decision paralysis. At YP℠, our connection to small businesses gives us insight into what those business owners do best... and what tends to keep them from achieving their objectives. More often than not, it is the fear and anxiety that halts their decision-making process, or as we like to c...

Social media is almost an essential component of any event, large or small. But for an event the size of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™, it is critical.

How can such a huge event with so many moving parts successfully build a strong online community that interacts year-round? Betsy Ellison has helped do that and more with the various social media channels for this huge traditional Houston event, with over half a million collective followers.

She will share with us how she does it as the sole social media manager, and how the Rodeo is leveraging other resources to create content and connection with its huge fan base with such programs as #RODEOHOUSTON Unplugged.

You will hear about:

-How to use hashtags to build a unified online community
-Creating onsite social media events to connect with fans
-Tips on keeping social channels alive year round for a once-a-year event
-Using contests to maintain engagement and participation, what works and what doesn’t
-Setting up a strong editorial calendar
-Growing the resources to develop content


Betsy Ellison, Manager, Social Media, Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™

Betsy Ellison joined the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ staff in May 2011 as the communications coordinator. In this role, Ellison was responsible for developing content for the RODEOHOUSTON® social media platforms, as well as Show editorial and information, including the production of Show publications, brochures, press releases, and other communication materials.

In September 2013, Ellison became the Show’s social media manager and continues to manage the Show’s social platforms, which collectively have more than half a million fans from across the Houston area, the state of Texas and around the world. She also is responsible for managing and implementing social campaigns to engage the Show’s fans year-round, both online and offline.

Please stand by if we start a few minutes late, this is a LIVE event!!!

Houston has the third-largest consular corps in the nation after New York and Los Angeles with 94 consulates. Social media is an important communication vehicle for consulates with both their own citizens as well as the citizens of the countries in which they serve. They are a critical source of information on the economy, society, culture and tourism of the countries they represent and they are often a vital source of information in a natural disaster or geopolitical crisis.

The Consulate General of France and the Digital Diplomacy Officer for Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs at the Consulate General of Israel join us this month to share how they prepare and communicate through social media channels. Like a satellite office for a corporate brand, consulates serve as the eyes and ears on the ground for their headquarters, in this case France and Israel.

SPEAKERS

Sujiro Seam was appointed Consul General of France in Houston in 2013. Prior to this appointment he served as Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Global Public Goods and then for Development and Global Public Goods. He led in the preparation of the Ministerial Conference of the 6th World Water Forum in Marseille in 2012 and led the French Delegation to the Development Working Group of the G20. He also chaired the meetings on food security under the French Presidency of the G8/G20 in 2011. Sujiro Seam joined the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 1998 as a member of the legal directorate, representing the French Government before the European court of justice and providing legal advice on European and international economic law.

She has been a member of PRSA Houston for 17 years. Prior to joining the Consulate, she co-owned a public relations and public affairs firm in Houston.

It is no secret that NASA loves social media. A quick look at their Social Media Hub http://www.nasa.gov/socialmedia shows you exactly what we mean. They were early adopters on most platforms and have hundreds of channels.

Closer to home in Houston, there is a team of communicators that are tasked with bringing the work on the International Space Center to life for the general public. This month, we welcome Mark Garcia, who will share how the team works together to bring space to life for fans across the globe, the challenges they face and how they maximize organic reach.

The International Space Station is the largest artificial body in orbit around earth and can be seen with the naked eye. It has been an inspiration to thousands of sky and space watchers and provides a platform to conduct scientific research in space. It is a joint project between NASA, Roscosmos, JAXA, ESA, and CSA. It also has a full-scale online footprint and social media program, including a dedicated website, a blog, a Facebook page and a Twitter page. 

What You Will Learn
•How to take cues from your fans to spin up new content and memes
•How to prove the worth of social media to your bosses
•How to coordinate multiple internal stakeholders providing social media content
•How to rock social media without advertising
•How to integrate social media with the overall mission
•Dealing with online trolls
