5 Social Media Lessons From Wizard World Comic Con

Social media for comic con with socialized! social media agency

At Socialized! our Social Media Agency we have had some incredible opportunities over the past year to work with brands such as the Ford Dealers Association of BC and Alberta, the Certified Management Accounts, CGA BC, CGA Canada and the Make-a-Wish Foundation. However…even producing the week long event “Social Media Week Vancouver” did not prepare us for the passionate, loyal and often opinionated fans at Wizard World Comic Cons. This is a relatively new adventure for us but this podcast reviews 5 social media lessons I have learned (or re-learned) so far:

5 Lessons (Listen to the podcast for a full explanation):

  1. Tapping into a Tribe is much better than building one
  2. When people know you’re listening they talk, share, tweet, like and follow
  3. Amplify the moment
  4. Run contests to find influencers
  5. Partner to expand influence

Here are some of the links and resources mentioned in the podcast:

Ford Dealer Social Media Success Story – Lebanon Ford Podcast

Ford Social Media Case Study and Podcast with Lebanon Ford on how they use social media to drive real results and revenues

Social Media Podcast: Ford dealers across North America are executing some amazing social media strategies. While catching up on my reading and best-practices I stumbled across a great case study on how Lebanon Ford (Ohio) has had some incredible success. They don’t just have a great social media team, they have built a truly social culture in their dealership that has resulted in a 260% year-on-year increase in Internet sales of vehicles and a significant increase in walk-ins and revenues overall.

I asked Zack Bello, Marketing and Communications Manager at Lebanon Ford to share with me how they have built such a great social enterprise that drives real business results using social media.

How to Hire the Right Social Media Manager the First Time

How to hire and recruit a social media manager or community manager

Hiring a social media manager, social media coordinator, chief tweeter or whatever you might call it is a challenging endeavor. There are many brands which have experienced great success and many who have also shot the foot off of their brand on the internet. Social media is not a department or a cubicle, it represents the most powerful word of mouth (or word of mouse) channels that have ever existed. Too many organizations aren’t strategic about who they hire internally or how they intend on implementing social media and integrating it into their business processes. Today’s podcast covers four major areas you need to look at (there are many more) before hiring.
