Social Media Strategy

Social Media : Two way communication


Over the last ten years, there has been a fundamental shift in how people access information and news. Companies traditionally used the media to get their messages out to their audiences via marketing, advertising, or public relations. Marketing and advertising push a message out to the masses. Companies use public relations to supply news to the media and expert sources to provide stories about their industry. The goal is to get media mentions of their company, products, or services. These methods are a one way communication, where a company delivers a message through the media, but individuals have no real way of responding. Today, this one to many mass media model has given way to the social web and a new way of communicating with people has emerged. Since people have tired of receiving one way communications, they are looking more and more for news and information in places other than the media. This trend is likely to accelerate "If searching for the news was the most important development of the last decade, sharing the news may be among the most important developments of the next." Social Media Engagement levels: Level 0 Ignoring / not responding Level 1 Listening. Listening is foundation discipline of social media maturity, unlike advertising (print / tvc) which is one way communication. Listening: - Monitoring and analyzing what is being said online about Red Fm. Social conversation reflects the brand perception. Comments and like is very easy tool to monitor and analyzing. Level 2 Responding / Engaging . Responding to quests . Engaging with consumer with brand. Level 3 - Participating (The next level): Participation in broader Industry communication that do not mention Red Fm. Like Dell is the best example which embodies this type of participation. Dell's spokespeople don't just talk about Dell all the times ; they also participate in discussions about things that interest the customers. John Blain Dell's gaming guy revies all his favorite games . Dell has strong voice in gaming community and they are true insiders because John is engaged , credible and tested. Level 4 Sharing Once Red Fm have effectively engaged and begun participating on Social Media. It's time to begin sharing a bit about what Red Fm is as a brand. Following three levels the brand contribution will be well being received and will be welcomed as it would be built on foundation of listening, responding and participating.

Level 5 Contributing Its founded upon listening of expression of need and then producing valuable, helpful content that people want because it meet those need. Eg : A sub page that give status of Mumbai traffic. Subscriber will get the post on thr handheld if they r traveling.. No cost solution for them . Posting a feed to wall Tune in to Red Fm to know current traffic status Surely it will make all those tune in to red fm frequency who are travelling(Social Media can work as mobile app for few things )

Marketing is System Social Media is Process


As a consumer, you are blasted with the same request over and over: Follow Us on Twitter, Like Us on Facebook. Why should I? Whats in it for me?

What Need to be Done


Creating the number of channels that meaningfully extend the focus of your business. We would be only creating channels that enhance the brand message without diluting it. And make sure we have the capacity to keep all the channels relevant.(Content Plays a major role)

A Focused Perspective
Channel Strategy
Red Fm as Main brand and Rjs and hit shows as sub brand that engender a follow worthy or likable presence. (TAB FOR RJS AND SHOW) Assess their value as a standalone channel and its current state. It may be best to simply truncate accounts or close them all together.(Independent Pages for RJS and Shows)

Channel Support System


We would develop an organized framework that supports each presence uniquely. Ensuring that each account establishes a rhythm that meets the needs of its audience. How it will work : The Content for Rjs Page would come in tab inside main RED FM page. Social Catalyst will devise a platform where content would be updated on both channel Main Brand and Sub brand i.e. Red fm main page and Rjs Page

Mission and Purpose

Determine the audience were trying to reach and design a communicable mission and purpose for each account. To create engagement and awareness among people about RED FM as well as to highlight the brands attitude, help in community and brand building. The best and worst part about FM listeners is no brand loyalty. People dont stick to one radio station, they change it as between the advertisement. How its Good? Since there is no Brand loyalty Social Media can be a platform for engaging Today many consumers are quick to move to the new, new thing and embrace a hot new gadget, trend, website, etc Its trend to like something which is cool, trendy and unique... which in turn will generates new consumer for Red Fm How its Bad? Making Presence is one thing which every one can do , Second comes getting the attention. Once youve got their attention you cant slack off on the job. You cant coast. Commit To Continual Renewal is a must as there is no brand loyalty
