Bruce Kennedy, Social Media Manager at Cision, joins the Social Pros Podcast to discuss the current state of PR and crisis management.
Preemptive Crisis Management
There was a time when news cycles were long enough to afford businesses a little bit of time to gather and respond to a crisis. These days, however, with the constant connectedness of consumers and the nearly real-time unfolding of news on social media, the only way to respond well is to have a plan.
According to Bruce Kennedy of Cision, your crisis response plan needs to be an integral part of your overall social media strategy. Many of the features that have become available to businesses on various platforms, such as increasingly powerful analytics and the ability to live stream video, can benefit your crisis plan.
Analytics help you see what comments and posts are gathering attention, allowing you to prioritize your response and stop a potential crisis before it happens. Similarly, live streaming video allows you to respond in an instantaneous and personal way while also providing immediate feedback as to how your message is being received. By incorporating these ideas into your crisis management strategy, you can more effectively respond to any current crisis, prevent potential troubles, and ultimately help your business stay on a path to growth and success.
