A new Toolkit to Help Governments Improve Services and Decrease Costs

Blog   /   Social

While many government leaders recognize the benefits of social media, it’s still easy to feel overwhelmed by the work required to implement an effective strategy.

With limited resources available, governments need to ensure that their social media initiatives are producing measurable cost savings.

We interviewed forward-thinking social leaders in government—from Fairfax County, Virginia, in the United States to Barcelona, Spain—to learn how they’re effectively scaling social media and using it as a tool to improve services, communicate with constituents, and help decrease operational costs.

You’ll find these best practices, along with other tactics you can begin integrating into your social media strategy, in our Social Media Toolkit for Government.
