  32. 32. “IT’S NOT THAT MACHINES ARE TAKING OVER, IT’S THAT THEY ARE HELPING US BE MORE HUMAN. HELPING US CONNECT WITH EACH OTHER. THE MOST SUCCESSFUL TECHNOLOGY GETS OUT OF ITS OWN WAY AND HELPS US LIVE OUR LIVES. AND REALLY IT ENDS UP BEING MORE HUMAN BECAUSE WE ARE COCREATING WITH EACH OTHER ALL THE TIME. IT’S STILL HUMAN CONNECTION, IT’S JUST DONE IN A DIFFERENT WAY. WE ARE JUST INCREASING OUR HUMANISTS.” 10 – AMBER CASE CYBORG ANTHROPOLOGIST Image source: blog.ted.com 
  33. 33. STRONG RELATIONSHIPS ARE GREAT FOR BUSINESS Image source: www.businessinsider.com 
  34. 34. RELATIONSHIPS FORM WHEN VALUES ARE SHARED AND AGREED UPON Image source southpark.wikia.com

  36. 36. GESTURES AND ARTIFACTS ARE UNIQUE AS THEY REQUIRE CARE AND TIME TO CULTIVATE Image source: www.prcouture.com
  37. 37. IN THE ERA WHERE ATTENTION IS SHORT AND EXPECTATIONS ARE HIGH, HOW CAN WE SPARK DELIGHT, TRUST AND LOYALTY AMONG CUSTOMERS? Image source: www.cinencuentro.com 
  38. 38. UNLOCK SMILES BY REACHING OUT WITH A GESTURE + ARTIFACT Virgin America delivered sincere gestures in the form of a “cheer up” to travelers who were Flying in the Face of Ordinary (FITFOO) in Boston, Washington DC and New York. Virgin America listened for distressed travelers on Twitter and delivered cupcakes to an office, brought rain boots to a woman who forgot hers at home, and even gave a woman in Boston a ride to help her get an important meeting. 12 Image sources: www.virgin.com www.boston.com
  39. 39. UNLOCK GRATITUDE BY REACHING OUT WITH A YUMMY ARTIFACT Rob G. of strictlyautobiographical.com wrote a blog post for his future children called “The Milano: an ode to Pepperidge Farm” in which he details his encounter with his new love for Milano cookies. Shortly after, a representative from Pepperidge Farm reached out to him via email to thank him for the post and asked for his address. Rob G. followed up with a blog post sharing his new stash of cookies and gratitude to Pepperidge Farm saying, “You’ve made me even more of a lifetime fan. Thank you so much!”13 Image source: http://agbeat.com/
  40. 40. FACILITATE DELIGHT IN THE FORM OF A SHARED EXPERIENCE AND SINCERE GESTURE A major soccer match between Spain’s Real Madrid against Italy’s AC Milan was taking place, and Italy’s AC Milan fans were eager to watch. To use American football as an analogy, this is as if Russell Wilson’s Seattle Seahawks and Peyton Manning’s Denver Broncos played on Monday Night Football. Heineken enlisted several university professors, girlfriends and bosses to convince their boyfriends to go to a classical concert on the same night as the match. These men could not say no to their significant other/boss and had to go to the classical concert. Heineken prepared a special surprise for them, unveiling a big screen as well as a classical orchestra which played music as beers were handed out, just in time for the big match. 14 Image source: www.jwt.com / www.coloribus.com
  41. 41. GESTURES COME TO LIFE THROUGH INSIGHTFUL INDUSTRY CONTENT VITAL CURRENCY FOR THE B2B INDUSTRY AT&T created a content marketing hub targeting key stakeholders for their B2B business. The team used social channels such as LinkedIn and Twitter to target people who would find the information useful. In the timespan of 18 months, AT&T saw $47 million in new business. People reward those who provide the right information at the right time. 15 Image source: http://networkingexchangeblog.att.com/
  42. 42. PLATFORMS ARE EVOLVING TOWARDS COLLECTIVE VALUE OVER NEWSFEED CONSUMPTION Image source: eongxien.wordpress.com
  43. 43. CO-CREATION ENABLES THE REALIZATION OF NEW PRODUCTS AND BRANDS The Kickstarter effect and magic of co-creation has arrived. In 2013, 19,911 projects were successfully funded and total of $480mm in total pledges were made, thereby unlocking new creative projects from a collection of sincere gestures in order to create thought provoking experiences. 16 Image source: Kickstarter.com Additionally, collective gestures are unlocking the creation of new products. Modern artifacts that have a genuine purpose, and a newfound meaning for the user, now have an opportunity to be involved at the very beginning of the production process, and therefore have more skin in the game.
  44. 44. COLLECTIVE GESTURES ENABLE CHARITY In the summer of 2012, Karen H. Klein was harshly bullied by students in upstate New York. The video titled, “Making the Bus Monitor Cry” was posted on YouTube and surpassed 4.7 million views within a week. The video prompted outrage on the internet. One viewer was inspired to create an IndieGoGo crowdfunding page with a $5,000 goal to give Karen the vacation of a lifetime. The campaign ended up raising $600,000 and ensured that Karen would never have to be a bus monitor again for the rest of her life. 17 Image source: NYTimes.com
  45. 45. BRANDS CAN UTILIZE THESE PLATFORMS TO HELP US ALL BE HEROES AND DELIVER REAL VALUE AND HOPE DC Entertainment’s We Can Be Heroes campaign raised more than $150,000 to tackle hunger in the Horn of Africa by enticing donors with perks like collector’s edition comic books. 18 Image sources: www.wbcitizenship.com  www.indiegogo.com Save the Drive-In, a campaign supported by Honda, is raising money to help sustain the dwindling number of drive-in movie theaters. 18

  56. 56. VERB, REVERB AND AMPLIFY THEORY The verb is something the company does. The reverb is the reverberations (r1) of that action across the social web, the “oooo, did you see what they did?’ (i.e. eye-opening experience) The amplify is taking what you did, the reactions, and turning that into a story. You must create a company culture that incorporates the development of eyeopening entertainment experiences and authentic gestures to produce dynamic reverberations across the social web. 22 KEY r1 = reverberations v = the thing you do q = quality of your product/ service b = brand warmth  r0 = reverberations of the last thing you did Image source: http://smithery.co/

NOW YOU NEED TO PRODUCE A TOTAL ENVIRONMENT, A WORLD IN WHICH EVERYTHING FITS TOGETHER. WE STARTED SELLING JEANS, AND NOW WE ARE SELLING A WAY OF LIFE.” 23 RENZO ROSSO FOUNDER OF DIESEL JEANS CEO, OTB HOLDING GROUP Image source: outofrush.com
