John’s Monday Tip of the Week: One World– One Social Media Connection

Good afternoon,

We are less than four months away from the presidential election so now is a great time for listeners to be tuning in to our Newstalk stations to hear the latest stories.

DNC e-mail leaks. Bernie Sander supporters protesting. A convention in chaos.

These are only a few of the stories that our listeners will  be paying attention  to this week and we want to be informing our listeners about these stories as quickly as they develop.

That brings us to John’s Monday Tip of the Week!

When breaking news happens, we want our stations to react to it as quickly as possible (promoting our stations, our shows, our articles etc.) and one way we can do that is through social media.

To help you learn more about what other stations are doing on social media, I’ve attached a spreadsheet here showing all of the Facebook and Twitter links for the Newstalk sites I could find.

One of the best things you can do to get started is see what your fellow stations are doing to get the word out about their stations.

Two stations that are really excelling here are WIND (which has over 2600 followers on Twitter) and KRLA, which has over 12,000 Facebook likes.

One thing you can do immediately is follow all of your fellow Newstalk stations on Twitter and like all of the fellow sites on Facebook.

That connection can bring us closer to the one world idea we’re continuously striving for! Once you do that, see what other stations are posting on Facebook and tweeting on Twitter and use the best ideas to help your own site excel!

We’re all on the same team here so we can always learn from each other and build upon the successes of our fellow stations!

Let me know if you want some ideas in pushing forward your station on socialmedia.

Also, feel free to like my Facebook page here. I try to post early in the mornings so I can catch reads when they first wake up.
This has been John’s Monday Tip of the Week!
Hope you have a great week, y’all!
