But I assure you, social media is a necessary component of your marketing strategy because it offers benefits that broadcasting does not.

Use a hashtag to let your fans and followers report on the action

A great way to let your audience get in on the action and participate in the content you broadcast is through the use of a branded hashtag. Create an easy-to-remember hashtag that your fans and followers can use with their posts. 9News in Colorado asks their viewers to use hashtag #9WX when they have a weather update, or even a traffic update such as a road closure. This allows the news station to keep more eyes on happenings around their coverage area by encouraging viewers to participate in news coverage.
