    I would add… ENGAGE the entire organization.

    Social media shouldn’t be about just one person’s efforts or a given department’s mission. Get others in the organization to take up the banner for more effective communications and better public relations through the concerted use of social media tools.

    Yes, even if you can create a community within your site or on another site i.e. on a Facebook fan page, that is great. Getting people to talk about you and conversing with them is key. Also ensure you thank those that promote or speak well of you.

    Always be LISTENING as well. This is key. Do searches for your company or subscribe to a Google Alert for your company’s name to read articles or messages written about you and RESPOND.
