1. Create a strategy © 2012 Telligent. All rights reserved. Understand your business objectives before you get going. Then write up community requirements, such as integrations and analytics, to find the right solution. Assemble an internal team to evaluate your business requirements. Social impacts your customers, internal departments, board of directors and more, so make sure the right people are on board from day one. Think through your content plan. An online community should drive deeper engagement with, and add value for, your customers, employees, partners and/or members. Understand how community integrates with your business. Community works best when it’s not just a standalone application, but integrated with your business process and tools. For AMA, that meant seamless integration with its CMS, Microsoft SharePoint, for document management.
2. Integrate your social investments © 2012 Telligent. All rights reserved. AMA’s website is built on Microsoft SharePoint and integrated with Telligent Community to layer in social interactions and networking between members for a seamless online member experience. Social media engagement on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook drives members back to AMA’s community. Check out these quick tips from AMA to unite SharePoint and your online community: Take advantage of integrated search across your community and website so members can easily find the information they want. Use widgets to pull in content from other Web properties to your community automatically, such as events and calendars. Plan how to use all of the extra social features that community adds to your website, and seed content before you open your community so members can easily contribute and talk to peers from the get go.
3. Learn the difference between social media and an online community © 2012 Telligent. All rights reserved. AMA uses SharePoint and Telligent to give its members more value than social media alone through deeper engagement, access to exclusive content and networking with verified marketing peers. In the words of AMA, there are heaps of different groups and networks for marketers (plus other affinity groups and topics) on social networks like LinkedIn and Facebook. In contrast, an online community gathers top caliber participants in one central area for communication and collaboration. Community removes the noise – ads, spam, self promotion and irrelevant or unhelpful content in social media – since you own and manage it. Communities enable deeper engagement with subgroups, a full set of social applications, privacy controls and the ability to own and analyze the data. This improves your organization’s ability to identify needs and deliver on customer, employee or member needs.
4. Take your cue from AMA’s lessons learned © 2012 Telligent. All rights reserved. Go where the people go. The most popular ways to engage in AMA’s community include discussion forums, media galleries, scheduled chats and custom profile searches to find colleagues and peers. Stay in tune with where and how your audience likes to interact. Recognize top contributors with badges and special mentions to show appreciation and encourage participation. Create a group ambassador program. Enlist top participants to volunteer to lead discussions, contribute valuable content and keep conversations going. AMA makes some content public and some private. This incents new members and retains current members with valuable resources and networking with peers. Dues-paying members are also rewarded with access to top quality content that is curated and shared by peers on an ongoing basis.
