The Wood County Health Department’s overall mission is to optimize health and maximize the quality of life across the lifespan for all people and communities of Wood County through our leadership and collaborations, focusing on health promotion and prevention and social conditions necessary to advance physical, mental and social well-being. The Healthy People of Wood County has been using social media to connect with the online community. The current social media efforts are primarily through our Facebook page, Recreate Health. The main goals of using social media is to reach more community members, increase awareness, to increase program and event participation, and to inform community members about initiatives and different ways to improve their health.

Soft ROI{s}

  1. Your soft and hard ROI’s align well with the mission of Wood County Health Department. You created a ROI strategy in a very simple, but effective manner. In what ways will you expand your social media networks in the future? Different social media sites work best for different organizations so I am curious which you will be expanding to. Great work. This was very easy to read and understand. I also like the picture you added!


  2. I liked how you simplified your goals and included both short-term and long-term. Reading these also made me wonder how to add a monetary value to hard ROI goals…I will likely return to my blog post and try and simplify my strategy! Thanks for sharing!


  3. Kudos! Your ROI projects are projections for your campaign are excellent. I would make one suggestion, you do not need to increase the time spent on a social media network. You need to know how to maximize the time spent on the network to ensure you are meeting your goals and objections for the campaign, this includes Hard ROI. Otherwise, this is good!


Thoughts, Suggestions, Kudos
