    Hi guys!
    Great show! So glad I finally remembered to check it out.

    I have a question for you guys, but it is somewhat unrelated to last week’s topic. I want to get some insight on a question that I am having.

    I have just started working at an organization that wants to utilize social media and get “online”. Prior to my employment here, they had had a few people come in and share some social media seminars about how to transition a company to use social media. They have limited social media as it is, but want to expand this immediately.

    Now, those giving the seminar had given the organization a word of advice, “Either do it all or nothing.”

    I agree that a company, to manage and achieve the goal of two-way communication properly, should be utilizing all social media channels, but not all at once. From my research I am coming to realize that slow and steady is the way to make this transition successful. Diving in head first isn’t going to get this company anywhere. The problem is, sometimes this can be hard to translate. As well know as well, if your organizations social media accounts are not managed properly, what is the point?

    Here is my question for you guys: When a company is transitioning to use social media, do they do it all or nothing? And if they did it gradually, like I am hoping, where do they begin? What social media tool would you use first? Twitter, Facebook, blog?

    I understand that you guys are going to have to make an assumption about what the organizations motivations are for wanting to go “online”, but just assume you weren’t selling anything, just promoting.

    I know what I would do, but what do you guys think?

    Ready, set, discuss!

    Can’t wait for next week!
