  • User JourneyTHE AUDIENCE EXISTS ACROSS THIS WHOLE LANDSCAPE NOWWhen you want to research a product or service, complain, get compensation find out about CSR or ethical sourcing, you use a range of sites, often starting with GoogleUser Journeys are planned across the brand owned and none brand owned channelsCampaign planning & creative strategies stretch across content for all these channelsAnalytics is about measuring the affect of activity across all these channels (driving traffic to the brand site, affect on brand perception, direct lead generation)
  • Here are the kind of changes that happen to a brand’s search engine ‘real estate’ when crisis happens.   If a site doesn’t have good SEO, or ‘social media’ properties, they’re outranked by news sites (considered authority sites by Google).  Lufthansa, though responding in social, are not utilising their social properties effectively & thus, they cannot control these results.  I would predict that by the end of the day, the video footage will be visible at the top of the results pages, alongside pictures at the bottom.

  • Some Case Studies…
  • Dr Pepper – Facebook Campaign
  • Facebook campaign – A competition which allowed Dr Pepper to hijack fans status updates replacing them with ‘funny’ alternatives e.g. “what’s wrong with weeing in the shower?”
    Problem occurred when the status “I just watched 2 girls one cup and was hungry afterwards” > a pornographic film reference
    The recipient was 14 years old and her Mother became aware of the update
  • Social Activation
    Mother posted frustrations on Mumsnet & asked members for advice
    Post received1300 replies
    Mumsnet users moved out of the forum & became activists in the social space
  • Official statements were distributed, the brand’s approach was to distance themselves from the campaign - pleading ignorance and blaming their agency
    Reputation Management
  • Response did not satisfy customers
    Response fails to impact the volume of discussion
    Consumer sentiment remained negative
  • Reactions
  • For the search “Dr Pepper”
    The official FB page was the top result.
    After this all other results on the 1st page were relating to the campaign
    Effect on SERPs
  • Know your audience
    Facebook has a user group of 13+ therefore a brand need to be aware that ‘edgy’ content could be viewed by minors.
    Need for content checking prior to campaign launch
    If you don't know what 2 girls 1 cup is... Find out!
    Monitor campaign and respond online
    Track mentions so that problems are identified early
    Online response which can help manage SERPS and diffuse crisis
    Take responsibility & respond appropriately  
    Develop a strategy for managing crisis scenarios

    “My readers are loyal because they trust me, if at any time they feel I have become unauthentic, I will have lost a reader if not many”
    “I want to deeply apologize to my winner and her husband, my children’s beloved paediatrician.  They were expecting an amazing meal and a true experience at the hands of famous Food Network chef they were fans of and were left with a really foul taste in their mouths.”
    “I’m NOT their target consumer and they were totally off by thinking I would buy or promote their highly processed frozen foods after tricking me to taste it”
  • Media Reaction
