Questions

What would be the top three rules of the social media etiquette during recruitment drives?

Asked by:
Jef LippiattCo-founder at Startup Chucktown
There are many things that should be considered when recruiting on social media, but I'll stick to 3 that I would personally follow.Do not spam followers. It's okay to post a few times a day if you are trying to extend your reach over several time zones. It is not okay to annoy all the people already following you (they may bristle and decide to not to follow you anymore).Do not ask for too much personal information in a public message. Respect individual needs for privacy. There is no need for public over-sharing. If you are looking for personal details or contact information that is not readily available, use a private message or email.Engage with personality. Try to make personal and meaningful connections. Don't use stock messages. Use messages that are on point with your brand's tone and style. Start a two-way dialogue. Ask for creative responses and respond to them in a timely manner.Those would be the 3 rules I would personally follow.

Overall you made some really good points. I would also add that a good manager keeps their goals and the goals of those they managed aligned with the over-arching company goals. A good manager also ensures that the team members are learning from one another as well as from other internal and external sources for professional and personal growth.

Justin Dry at Vinomofo
First we actively encourage them to think about it and share with the team. Even if it’s not related to Vinomofo. We call this Mofo Projects and it has led to some really cool ideas and even the creation of a few startups! In regards to the secret deals example, they say necessity is the mother of all invention and it certainly was in this case. In the early days of Vinomofo we were regularly facing the same challenge - wineries wanted to sell us their wines but at such epic prices, distributors and other retailers would get upset. Then one day a team member said “what if we hid the label?” and the secret deal was born. So now we have an agreement with the producers not to reveal these wines and a promise to our customers that they’ll have the “wow” moment when it arrives and they found out what it is. We have 100% confidence that if a wine passes our tasting panel (only 5% do) then our Mofos will love it. And we stand behind that by offering a 100% no questions asked money back guarantee.
