I go through some case studies, my pov on the company reaction everytime (how they did things/ what they could do better) and I offer my thinking on the general steps on how to manage a similar crisis…
My experience is in brand management, advertising and marketing consulting. I do not consider myself to be an expert on everything that has to do with digital marketing, but someone with a passion for it. So my objective is to offer some food for thought and definitely a trigger for extra discussion.
This is the material as it was presented on August 20th, 2013, in Geneva, Switzerland for the Geneva Digital Marketing Group. The presentation has not been optimised for slideshare: some animations are not visible which has as a result some images clashing on each other. Please note some videos were also used - please email me if you need them or the full pptx file (nikolas.rizos@gmail.com).

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8pyNHz6Pr0This is a typical video that explains why someone should invest through social media in order to grow his business.I am not here to talk about this. I needed it only to set up the ground.I want to focus on the following:All this Social Media conversation is:Not organised,Not controlled,Without any physical boundaries…Internet has turned what used to be a controlled, one-way message into a real-time dialogue with… millions!All this “revolution” has accelerated the rate at which relationships develop,Information is shared,And influence takes hold…Consumers try to shape the world now via social media…They are no longer passive – they are active producers!

  • TIP: Company lawyer + Communications dptTIP: Use help from customer service for insightsTIP: Tweeter vs. FCB -> use Twitter less for high-risk initiatives

  • Ignoring is not an option…

  • … even if you do not have a large update, just in order to show you are on it
  • Compassion – If anyone has been hurt or killed in the crisis, start by expressing your heartfelt condolences to those affected – and mean it!Concern – Express concern that the incident has occurred in the first place.Commitment – Make clear your absolute commitment to get to the bottom of what has gone wrong and ensure it will never happen again.Control – People will feel much better if you make it clear that the crisis response will be managed and controlled from the top.Communication – Undertake to provide regular updates and information to stakeholders. Speculation loves a vacuum and social media will fill it for you if you let it.
  • You won’t be able to avoid attracting negative comments, not everyone will love what you do. But by having a plan for dealing with them you can avoid turning a low grumble into a full on attack and often develop new advocates for your brand.
