Social media managers during a crisis, retweet relevant information

Amy doesn’t let her clients know when she is pausing their campaigns

Marketing calendars should be flexible.

In cannabis filling tweets 2 weeks in advance could create problems because things change on a daily basis.

Respect the hashtag. Don’t hijack trending hashtags to promote your business when not related.

Use trending topics for what they are for… trending topics.

How long should a social media campaign say paused?

  • It depends, how bad was it?
  • If you use a location-based hashtag for marketing, pause use until after the news has stopped.
  • Taking selfies of yourself volunteering is not good for your brand, says Amy. Put the camera away and use 2 hands to help.

Sell hurricane equipment before that season, not after.

If you have a local business during a local emergency don’t go silent. Use your blog and social media to share resources or help others. – Jen Miller

When in doubt, lay out.

  • Bridget

Came from when planing in a band and not feeling a song.

Look to OREO – they were prepared and made their team aware. Be responsive and it can be a win for your brand. – Bridget
