1 Multi-platforming Recycle, Reuse, Reformat… Just Don’t Reinvent Reba Hull Campbell Deputy Executive Director Municipal Association of SC

2 Sound familiar? Website full of great content Staff engaged in sharing information and news important to your constituents Publications tell great stories Lots of interaction on social media platform Good management of data and constituents Organization well covered by reporters

3 But feedback shows… People you serve say they aren’t getting all the information they need from your organization. …this despite the fact you are running yourself ragged creating new content for websites, publications, and social media.

4 Why? Reading and learning habits are changing – People want information in short bursts with the option of digging deeper – Days of word magazine articles or s that scroll multiple screens are over – People get information from a variety of sources and take minimal time to absorb it.

5 Forgotten? Unloved? Unneeded? Relegated to online Siberia? So what happens to all your great content after it’s initially pushed out ?

6 What’s an organization to do? Multiplatform! Strategically reusing, recycling and reformatting content to tell your story in a deeper, more engaging, way to make new topically-connected content from different parts of the organization’s storehouses of content

7 What are platforms? Any tool your organization uses to communicate with key audiences Website / print and electronic publications / signage / partner organizations / social media / meetings / field staff / marketing materials / remote office interaction / news media / surveys / receptionist and front lines staff / stationery and business cards / vmail / / press releases / exhibits / WOM / blog / staff communication

8 Steps for Successful Multi-platforming 1 – Create an organization-wide strategy.  Long-range goals and short-range targets of opportunity  Not about creating more or new content  About leveraging the most and best use out of what you’ve created then adding to that, if needed

9 Steps for Successful Multi-platforming 2 - Audit all the platforms (communications tools) you have available to your organization.  Simple spreadsheet  Think beyond just print and digital and beyond your traditional communications tools

13 Steps for Successful Multi-platforming 5 - Integrate the idea of multi-platforming into all outreach efforts.  Editorial calendar/strategy  Long-range goals and short-range targets of opportunity  Tracking/evaluation  Not just a communications function (seat at the management table)
