In an 'always on' world where channel-surfing B2B customers demand real-time responses - no matter where they are - what is the optimal role of social media marketing? Roxane Divol, a partner and leader of McKinsey's Marketing & Sales Practice, addressed this question at the ITSMA Marketing Leadership Forum and demystified the emerging role of marketing as a driver of social technologies. She also discussed the tactics and strategies B2B marketers should use to access the touchpoints and datastreams that reinforce the social consumer decision journey. This presentation provides insights into how, when, and where social media influences and uniquely engages customers, as well as current best practices for developing, launching, and demonstrating the financial impact of social media campaigns.

Social: An essential component of pervasive B2B marketing Social: An essential component of pervasive B2B marketing Presentation Transcript

  • WORKING DRAFT Last Modified 8/12/2013 11:48 AM Eastern Standard Time Printed Social: An essential component of pervasive B2B marketing ITSMA Marketing Leadership Forum May 29, 2013 Any use of this material without specific permission of McKinsey & Company is strictly prohibited
  • McKinsey & Company | Four forces at work changing the nature of marketing The primacy of customer experience and engagement Digital darwinism Continued proliferation of touchpoints Explosion of data 1
  • McKinsey & Company | 2 Virgin Airways CEO Steve Ridgway After all, we fly exactly the same planes as everybody else. We fly them under the same very strict safety rules. Yet if you go on one of our planes and experience the service, you’ll see it’s very different from many others. If we get our customers off the plane happy, and they go on to talk about that and get others to come and then come back again themselves— that’s a huge marketing tool for us. The rise of customer experience and engagement SOURCE: McKinsey Quarterly, July 2011, ―How we see it: Three senior executives on the future of marketing‖
  • McKinsey & Company | American Express CMO John Hayes I haven’t met anybody—and I talk to a lot of my colleagues in the marketing world—who feels they have the organization completely aligned with where this revolution’s going, because it’s happening so fast and so dramatically. Marketing is touching so many more parts of the company now. It touches on service; it touches on product development. We need to organize in a way that starts to break down the traditional silos in the business The proliferation of touchpoints 3 SOURCE: McKinsey Quarterly, July 2011, ―How we see it: Three senior executives on the future of marketing‖
  • McKinsey & Company | Chief Research Scientist, Yahoo Duncan Watts New datastreams, analytics and decision-making Marketing has long been data driven, with a lot of survey research and polling. But the volume and variety of data that we are beginning to acquire is vastly increasing, requiring better computing facilities…and a whole new science. The marketing world is about to experience a shock. We tell ourselves plausible stories about how consumers are going to behave but when you actually get the data, they don’t do that. Once you accept that your intuition about how people behave is inherently flawed, then you really need a different model for learning about the world. Everything becomes data driven in a real-time, reactive way. 4 SOURCE: McKinsey Quarterly, July 2011, ―How we see it: Three senior executives on the future of marketing‖
