Social Media Crisis Prevention Tips From Sysomos

Latest Tip Sheet Helps Marketers Proactively Use Social Media to Manage Their Company's Reputations and Protect Their Brands

TORONTO--(Marketwire - January 26, 2013) - Many companies recognize the role social media can play in managing a public relations crisis, but what about preventing one before it happens? Savvy marketers are realizing that a sound social media strategy can help them stay ahead of changing sentiment and shift the conversation before it can do damage. "Turn Social Intelligence into Smart Crisis Prevention," the latest Tip Sheet from Sysomos, offers practical suggestions for identifying and even staving off a social media crisis, as well as navigating an impending crisis.

Report Highlights

  • Every company should have an updated, readily accessible social media crisis plan that represents each of its departments, because a crisis can range from an executive faux pas to poor customer service to a product malfunction.
  • Word clouds are great bellwethers for predicting a crisis. Monday's word cloud could reveal business as usual while Tuesday's could predict trouble in the making.
  • Organizations can avert or more easily control a crisis once it occurs by developing positive relationships with their major influencers, fans and clients ahead of time.
  • Overreacting to a crisis can hurt a brand as much as can underreacting. Monitoring tools reveal spikes in social sentiment during crisis response; the goal is to bring sentiment volume to pre-crisis levels.
  • Pre-prepared messages help speed response, but the tone and content must be modified for each unique situation. It's critical for a brand's voice to be authentic and genuine when it explains how it's fixing the issue.

The technologies behind big data and cloud computing are converging quickly, offering businesses new capabilities for fast, easy, wide-ranging access to data.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.
