6 tips to maximize social media marketing campaigns

first_imgby: Carie SchelfhaudtNot long ago, about the only way to get people to like your financial institution’s Facebook page or follow you on Twitter was to offer a monetary incentive, usually in the form of a giveaway or contest. But you don’t need to give away tablets, TVs and cash to get people to connect with you on social media. Here are six tips to help grow your social media community and increase the effectiveness of your campaigns in social channels.1. Create personasStart by building the top four personas that represent the kind of people you want to attract. Use these personas as the basis for four different social media campaigns, with each campaign having a different audience and budget. Developing the personas and the structure of the ad campaigns before determining copy and images will allow you to determine the type of ad that will resonate with each persona. And, you’ll be able to optimize the budgets for each campaign once you determine which campaign is the most effective. After all, your financial institution has more than one product, multiple demographics and even multiple touch points that would resonate with different audiences. Shouldn’t your social media messaging be customized to your audience as well? continue reading » 19SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Noonan & West triumph at Navy

first_imgPSC Golf from the Phantom Golf SocietyMonday, Dec. 21, Plutaluang N & W – StablefordCombining with Colin’s Golf Bar we had 6 groups ready to visit Plutaluang and on a beautiful Monday morning we departed the Phantom Bar just before 9.00am and headed south.  The traffic was pretty good for a Monday and going a different way, this time past Silver Lake, we arrived at the course in the very good time of 38 minutes.  The golf course was fairly busy and we were allocated the North & West nines, which was our preference anyway and our first group got away 10 minutes earlier than our scheduled 10.30am tee time.  With no-one immediately in front of us the pace was quite good and the course was in fine shape with the greens in very good condition.Matt Noonan & Paul West. As mentioned earlier, the weather was fantastic for golf as it was not too hot and there was very little wind.  After the first nine holes it was unusual to find that all our four had 19 points each and the expectations were great with most of us playing steady golf on the back nine but nothing exceptional.  It was a very good, leisurely round with excellent company and we finished in the good time of just over four hours.We had 2 flights, A Flight for handicaps of 0 to 18 and B Flight for golfers with handicaps of 19 and over.  We also had nearest the pins on 2 par threes and longest first putts on the ninth & eighteenth greens.The A Flight was well won by Matt Noonan with 41 points and big Phil Davies came second with 38, which was 1 point better than your writer, Peter “Blacky” Blackburn who finished in third place.In the B Flight it was Paul West who was declared the winner after scoring a fine 40 points, with Colin “Donkey” Davis in second spot with 37.  There were 3 golfers with 36 points so a count back was required to determine third place and that went to Marcus Earp (17 point back nine, 10 points on the last 6 holes & 6 points on the last 3 holes), with Tony Cook (17 point back nine, 10 points on the last 6 holes & 5 points on the last 3 holes) and Stu Mann (17 point back nine, 10 points on the last 6 holes & 5 points on the last 3 holes) just missing out.A Flight (0-18)1st Matt Noonan (8) 41pts2nd Phil Davies (13) 38pts3rd Peter Blackburn (14) 37ptsB Flight (19+)1st Paul West (19) 40pts2nd Colin Davis (20) 37pts3rd Marcus Earp (30) 36ptsNear Pins: N3 Alistair Gall, W8 Torben LindgaardLong Putts: N9 Sean Larner, W9 Phil DaviesNote: The Phantom Golf Society welcomes golfers of any persuasion – low & high handicappers alike, female golfers and beginners.  We generally play Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays, meeting at The Phantom Bar in Soi Buakhow at 8.00 am with transport departing at 8.30 am.  Breakfast is now available at the Phantom Bar from 7.30am onwards.  For bookings or more information please contact Peter on 0806 351 386 or email to [email protected]last_img read more

What Is Thurston County’s Medical Reserve Corps?

first_imgFacebook60Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Jennifer Dixon, Education and Outreach for Thurston County Public Health and Social ServicesHave you ever wondered how Thurston County would respond in a serious health emergency? Most of us have. Yet, a lot of us don’t know about the dedicated group of specialized volunteers whose mission is to provide “public health surge capacity” in the event of a public health emergency. This means, when resources are already in use, or difficult to find, a request goes out for the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) to step in and help.Photo courtesy: Thurston County Public Health and Social ServicesThe MRC is a group of trained volunteers who work to strengthen and expand the local public health systems’ response capacity. These volunteers are trained to provide vaccinations, distribute medication, administer first aid, triage and treat, as well as provide support to specific response needs (such as the measles outbreak in Clark County, Washington).Becoming part of the MRC is a great way to serve the community. Training and education are provided and volunteers have the opportunity to help when called upon in the event an emergency.Glenn Baldwin, a volunteer since 2014, shared that “the MRC has given me opportunities to work on real time health issues, like the Clark County measles outbreak, that better prepare me to assist my own community.”After 10 years of being with the MRC, Deven Zipp, agrees, “MRC has provided me a way to use my nursing skills to help my community respond to public health challenges. I also get to work with other organizations across the county to practice emergency response skills.”Though the Medical Reserve Corps is a national volunteer program, we’re lucky in Thurston County to have more than 90 active volunteers. Some of these volunteers are trained doctors, nurses, pharmacists, counselors, or share experience from other medical fields. Some are retired. Others are still working in their fields. Still more MRC volunteers offer support in non-medical efforts through education, administration, interpretation services, or emergency management experience. The group has built—and continues to build—strong partnerships with a variety of community partners, local school districts, first responders, hospitals and clinics, faith-based organizations, tribal partners and other government and non-profit organizations.A strong and vibrant Medical Reserve Corps is an important piece of our ability to prepare for health emergencies in Thurston County. If you, or someone you know, wants to learn more or get involved, email [email protected], or call 360-867-2609. You can also visit them on Facebook @ThurstonCountyMedicalReserveCorps.Whatever health-related emergencies may visit us in Thurston County in the years to come, we can all rest a little easier knowing the Medical Reserve Corps will be there to help.last_img read more
