  • Nestlé • Nestlé asked YouTube to remove the video on copyright grounds • Narrative shifted to discussions of ‘censorship’ • Nestlé’s Facebook page was besieged with complaints • They folded in 8 weeks • Same company has resisted formula milk campaign for almost 40 years
  • Nestlé You’ve been Brandjacked !
  • BP • Greenpeace planning its ‘new logo’ contest from over a year • Backed by stunts like closing BP’s service stations • Campaign ‘recalibrated’ to take account of Deepwater Horizon oil spil
  • BP • Anonymous fake Twitter feed @bpglobalpr run by ‘Leroy Stick’ – pseudonym of comedian and satirist Josh Simpson • Maintained consistent quality output • Safety is our first priority. Well, profits then safety. Well, profits, then image, then safety – but it’s right up there. • Ten times as many followers as @bpamerica
  • BP You’ve been Brandjacked ! Twice!
  • How can business respond? • L’Oreal – Vichy • June 2005 – launched a fake blog by ‘Claire’ • Exposed within an hour as fake – but L’Oreal had announced this in a press release • Pleaded naiveté and asked for forgiveness
  • Turning a bad blog good • L’Oreal launched a real blog in which the Vichy team participated openly – real names and photos, and allowing genuine comments, bad and good. • Brought in an external blogger to work with their team • Widely praised for openness, engagement and transparency
  • Imagine • Imagine if BP had told its 100,000 staff to log onto Twitter and deliver three corporate messages • Volume metrics through the roof • Sentiment metrics would have been excellent • Credibility and trust - ZERO
  • Imagine • If BP had asked its 100,000 staff to engage openly and honestly on Twitter, Facebook and in blogs • Some criticism • Some praise • Where would the balance have lain?
  • Trust Credibility is inversely proportional to control Jeff Jarvis
  • Questions
  • Welcome to the new world • Companies which engage openly and transparently will prosper • The rest will fail • Engaging with your staff and with local communities is your first step
