New Exercises for Part II

We'll focus our exercises on strategy. For this exercise you can perform the following instructions using your company, your personal brand, or choose one of our non-profits. If you don't mind, I'd like you to send me your work so I can give you feedback. My email is victorc at nxtsm.com.

  1. Write down at least one strategic objective for your online effort.

  2. Write down three specific audience groups who you need to engage to achieve that objective.

  3. For each of your audience groups write down three ideas or topics that will interest them.

  4. Write down at least one idea to connect each topic or idea with another organization or person outside of your organization.

Helping our non-profits

Visit the one of the sites of each non-profit. Find something you like and mention it in a tweet with a link back to the site. Remember to include the #LSUSMCert hashtag so we can all see it.

Our next exercises will be about content choices.
