How to Create a Social Media Crisis Management Plan [Free Template]

May 19, 2015

Social Media Crisis Management Plan - HubSpot

Social media community managers and public relations professionals have to deal with little problems every single day. These could include nasty comments, unhappy customers, delivery issues, or a marketing faux pas -- all problems that arise frequently and deserve reasonable and empathetic responses. 

There are times when they also have to deal with real crises, such as gun terror, natural disasters, and white collar crime. The reason these fall under the "crisis" category is because, if you act or respond incorrectly on your social media channels, they could damage a brand’s long-term reputation.

While some of these issues can be categorized as a "problem" or a "crisis" pretty easily, others aren't so black-and-white. How do you categorize these types of situations? How do you determine the point of escalation with each crisis scenario? When should you get help from a manager or another team member ... and who should you even reach out to?

You'll find answers to all these questions and more in our brand new Social Media Crisis Management Plan.
