Social Media Week comes to Mark Ramsey Media

It’s social media week here on the MRM blog!

I’m going to kick off with a conversation about Facebook – does it matter for your broadcast platform? I’ll give you three reasons why it does in the video here:

I will not be covering the “how to” basics here.  Those are everywhere online and in the bookstore. Instead, I’m going to address certain key issues that relate specifically to broadcasters.

Those will include highlights like these:

  • A conversation with Social Media Examiner founder Michael Stelzner on how social media can help radio build a massively big audience on-air and online (that’s tomorrow)
  • Examples of how broadcasters and others are stoking fan interest in their Facebook pages
  • A chat with Radio’s own Tracy Johnson about how he is integrating Facebook with contesting efforts and magnifying the impact of both

So stay tuned to the blog this week for tips on how to make your social media efforts stronger and more integrated with everything else you do.

    It PAINS me how slowly “radio” has grasped the concept of social media.  It makes sense, however, when you consider how ego-centric the industry seems to be, whereas the heart and soul of social media requires you to let go of your ego and put others first.  Looking forward to the rest of this series, Mark!

    Mark, I look forward to hearing more about the Facebook community for radio and how to use it.
