    • 36. Tips & Tricks AdvocateAnywhere Aaron Rothschild Product Manager
    • 37. 37 Questions marketers ask us…. • How do we find the people willing to perform advocacy for us? • How can we engage users with urgent challenges, when they don‟t come to the hub that often? TIPS AND TRICKS
    • 38. 38 AdvocateAnywhere allows you to keep your customer “asks” in context of what they are currently doing ‒ Logging In to your app ‒ Finished Salesforce Integration with your app ‒ Reading a Blog Post ‒ Reading Customer Stories on your website ‒ Etc. Context
    • 39. 39 A widget that lets you bring challenges to your customers - rather than making them visit the hub. What is AdvocateAnywhere?
    • 40. 40 Notifier – currently a customizable image If there is another challenge available to the user – this will be displayed You advocacy program name (Ie: champions, Rockstars, et c) The trim color is customizable to match your web pages/site
    • 41. 41 AdvocateAnywhere - Inline This is a section of content – no pop-up. It is also personalized to the current user.
    • 42. 42 After…. If we don’t recognize the visitor (not a current advocate) – we ask for email address If we recognize them - don’t ask for email AND If there are no other challenges available for them – thank them! We make it easy for you to invite these users to your full hub
    • 43. 43 Customer Success Story Pages: • Ask current advocates to provide their customer story. • Ask current advocates about their favorite feature in your product - and why. Your Blog • Ask visitors if they wanted to work with you on a guest post. • Ask Advocates to post ideas for future blog posts Some Ideas: Your Website
    • 44. 44 Referral/Partner Pages • Ask any web visitor to provide a referral lead • Ask partners to perform another challenge (while they are visiting their portal to register a lead) Support Portals • Ask advocates in your portal if they'd like to join the "Early Beta Access program" --> a lead-in to becoming an advocate. • Ask users to fill out a simple NPS survey Other Web Properties
    • 45. 45 • You can specify WHERE a challenge will appear ‒ Your Blog, Customer success Story Page, Within your App • You can specify WHO will see the embedded challenge ‒ Registered Advocates who are in a particular group ‒ Unknown Web Visitors Targeting
    • 46. 46 Targeting: Where Enter the URL of the webpage where you want the embed to be displayed
    • 47. 47 Targeting: Who Include unknown webvisitors
    • 48. 48 1. Create a challenge that is visible to anyone who lands on a particular URL/webpage 2. Create a challenge visible only to people who are already registered advocates 3. Create a challenge that is visible only after Challenge #1 has been completed Go to Settings: System : AdvocateAnywhere How can I experiment with it?
    • 49. 49 • You can automatically “pass” us the user‟s email if your app already knows it - so we don‟t ask for their email. • You can trigger the “pop-open” with some JS magic (speak to me) • You can build your own version of this pop-up with an API we‟ve built for this Improvements Coming Up: ‒ Text label instead of image ‒ More Reporting ‒ More stage types Bonus: Cool Things

    • 59. 59 Expand and refine Fall release capabilities (great UX, track referral lifecycle in SFDC, end to end visibility to advocate and admin) ‒ Refer by email Allow advocates to send a referral by email (e.g. to or ), receive email confirmations and status updates and track the status of their referral in the hub. ‒ Multiple referral challenges (tentative) Have multiple referral challenges using the same business workflow and tracking mechanisms Referrals #influitivesf
    • 60. 60 ‒ Improved Email Templates • Optimize and create new templates to increase engagement. • Add new data and call to action in templates – e.g. After a challenge is approved, suggest another similar challenge to the advocate. ‒ Redesigned Advocate „Dashboard‟ • Updated visual design • Improved layout to accommodate allow adding new engagement mechanisms such as missions, contests, content, etc. ‒ Maven • Add push notifications, points, badges; Test and update UX. • Test the impact of stub hubs and advocacy across hubs Advocate Engagement #influitivesf
    • 61. 61 ‒ Goals • Allow admins to set goals, track their status and increase their engagement by pushing them to meet and exceed their goals. E.g. # of referrals, # of case studies, # of product review per month ‒ Health Meter / Alerts & Tips • Define a standard health meter tracking the performance of the customer‟s Hub. E.g. number of available challenges per advocate, number of new challenges create over the past week, number of new advocates in hub, etc. • Suggest corrective action using best practices. E.g. Create 5 new challenges and target them to the Partners group. Customer Value #influitivesf
    • 62. 62 ‒ Syndicate Best Practices Content in Hub Take CS knowledge base and make it available, in context, in the hub E.g. Show articles about reporting features and best practices on the Reporting tab Best Practices #influitivesf
