Adding Value to SM Posts by Sierra Leone K. Samuels


As the person responsible for managing the SM sites for the Circle of Discipline I have to ensure that there is value in all of the posts, which can be hard at times. Some of the things I’ve done to assist in ensuring the value of posts on their SM sites is adding people as administrators. I cannot be at all places at one time, so it is helpful to have others posting on behalf of the Circle of Discipline. That way more of our activities are being shared with our followers, which also adds to the value of our posts.

IMG_0841Something that has helped tremendously in regards to valued posts on their SM sites are positive stories, pictures and videos. People love to hear a positive story, see pictures and watch videos of the various activities that the youth participate in at the Circle of Discipline. Stories, pictures and videos help to inform and educate the community about the  Circle of Discipline and how they actually help the youth and their family in the community. Here is a recent picture that I took one Saturday of a project that the youth at the Circle of Discipline are working on through a small grant that was awarded from the Hennepin County Environmental Department. The youth are learning about Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and how it benefits the community they live in.

I have noticed that the more pictures, videos and stories that are shared on the Circle of Discipline SM sites the more interaction they have. We have an increase in the number of fans, there is an increase in the number of people talking about our SM sites, and there is an increase in the number of the Circle of Discipline posts that are being shared. All of those things are important to know for an organization/business for marketing and promotion purposes.

  1. Nice post, Sierra. I like the shout out to your organization, but the link is broken so you probably want to go in and fix that since it will drive traffic to the webpage. And multiple admins is a great strategy, because it can be so overwhelming to do multiple channels on your own. Well done!
    But do fix the link. 😉

  2. Thanks, I went in and corrected the error. Not quite as savvy as Paige but getting there. -slks
