Recently, my cool coworker left my organization for another job, and I’ve inherited her social media responsibilities (managing the organization’s twitter and facebook account). Essentially, I’ve become THE SOCIAL MEDIA GODDESS.
|This is where a Social Media Goddess sits.|
When I started, our facebook page had nearly 500 hundred likes, but our twitter had less than 100 followers.
|Yeah, it's a meme reference.|
So I was all, hey, I have 400 followers on my blog’s twitter! (Facebook, not so much. But still). It’ll be easy for me to increase those numbers for my organization! But then I realized, tweeting as a nonprofit organization is a LOT different than personal tweeting.
Needless to say, I got no responses on that tweet. It is HARRRRRRRRD to find interesting things to say when you can’t talk about wine or cursing. There’s mostly a lot of “Check out org’s new pictures on facebook!” “Check out event related to org this week!” etc etc.
This is…fine…I guess, but it doesn’t exactly get a ton of people super interested in your page.
It’s getting a little frustrating.
I’ve managed to get us to just over 100 followers, mostly by following a ton of people and hoping they follow me back. It’s annoying, but there’s a bit of slow progress at least.
The other problem is, there’s not a ton of action on twitter during the day. It mostly peaks at night. BUT, there’s something else I do at night too…
I could do a bit of work tweeting at night, but I’m terrified of this accidentally happening:
