Be Helpful: The Strategy for Social Success
Be helpful. This is the guiding principle of the Rackspace Social Media team. But while you may think that it applies strictly to our social media support, it reaches into our social marketing, social enablement and entire fabric of our company.
When a brand—and employees—is empowered to genuinely be helpful on social media good things happen. Problems are resolved, valuable information is delivered and everyone feels good.
Frank Cerda (@Racker121) covers best practices that led to Stevie award-winning social support, Garrett Heath (@pinojo) discusses the power of delivering valuable information via paid social and Elizabeth Jurewicz (@RackerLiz) talks about enabling your employees.
