  • So we are looking at the internet marketing tree that we all live in as marketers and brand developers. What I am going to touch on today is the roots and trunk of the tree and branch out to email and social media to hot topics. In another session we can discuss other branchesI think this illustration is a good example of how core your website is to the growth of your program. A solid root system leads to a strong truck that then leads to strong branches that can weather anything that is blown there way
  • Mobile incentives provides event meet-up and social opportunities to create and relationship marketing that we are looking for.

  • I want to stress how important it is to have a presence in either Twitter or Facebook or bothRecent statistics from Facebook show they have 400 million active users and more than 20 million people become fans each day. Twitter users post over 50 million tweets per day - that's an average of 600 tweets per second.The study also uncovered perceptions among consumers that those brands not engaging in social media are out of touch.Some Quotes about Brands not on Facebook or Twitter“It shows they are not really with it or in tune with the new ways to communicate with customers.”“It's expected that a company have some digital face - whether it's on FB or Twitter I don't know - but they need a strong electronic presence or you doubt their relevance in today's marketplace.”“Either they are not interested in the demographic that frequents Facebook and Twitter or they are unaware of the opportunity to get more exposure in a more interactive method.”If you don’t have a Fan page or a twitter account you are missing an opportunity to continue the conversation.In the next couple of slides I am going to show you how some brands have entered the Social Sphere. Bottom line Social Media is good for your brand recognition as well as your bottom line!
  • Mobile23% of all mobile phones are smartphones and this is growingEmail97% if US households use email 66% of marketers are integrating social and emailSocialMost companies use Social for Brand awarenessBut you also can use it for:behavior trackingData acquisitionMulti-channel engagementContent distributionDrive sales
  • In your plan you will need to decide where you would like Vouchers to live and how they are going to be accounted for from that channel.I find that email is the best way because it is setting the expectation of what they are going to receive so they will subscribe.It is an incentive to open the closed loop that Social Media is plus customers like consistency but a surprise every once and a whileYou want to control the database! It is yours!Use the Social Sphere should be used for opening the doors (customer service, events, continued engagement)Listen and ask your customers in the social sphere to help plan your voucher program.
