  • Seminar is for people who know they should do more with digital marketing and want to dive in like pros
  • Why is it important to do it right? Better return on the price you pay over print, direct, display – any other form of marketing. That’s because it’s instant and trackable and through those traits, proven in its effectiveness.
  • The custom fit is key. And by individual problems we mean not just the marketing challenges but also the challenges caused by your company’s culture.
  • Story about culture: agency gets you behind the scenes, we have a client at a big law firm, traditional management, under resourced team, under-skilled marketing manager, knows the sector and the users but not the techniques. His problem was he didn’t know how to put together a strategy or business case and so had to deal with requests ad hoc. For example….
  • The Monday following his boss’ birthday weekend
  • And even though the request was ridiculous strategically speaking (that same boss had yet to approve their plan to make the site mobile accessible) he didn’t have a strategy or plan to offer instead.
  • In this vein, we often encounter public sector clients who are jealous of the marketing teams in private corporations…
  • But in reality, their just as held back by head offices and management still used to thinking in old fashioned frameworks.
  • We know how to expand our businesses in real life: get more buildings, more staff, and our whitest, oldest executives to hold a pair of giant scissors at the ribbon cutting ceremony.
  • But how do we expand our business online wherehaving massive influence and power over users has nothing to do with the physical size of your website?
  • Welcome to the internet (as represented by Google for the web 2.0 summit). Where growing in power and influence over users requires military-like tactics to put yourself on the map, grow your presence, expand into new territories and fight to maintain position.
  • Four tactics: SEO, Social Media, PPC, and Email
  • Tactics like SEO: optimising your online presence so that users you want to target come to you – via search and other websites.
  • Like launching an invasion across the internet!
  • Tiny castle in the PLAINS OF CONTENT represents your website
  • (Made it bigger so you can see it)
  • This is what SEO looks like. Sending word of your kingdom to other lands to entice those people to come to your kingdom.
  • It won’t last but it can be life or death in that specific moment.Like giving medicine and supplies to the villagers of a jungle in exchange for them showing you safe passage to the river.
  • Good will outposts
  • Wooden forts in the UNION OF SOCIAL NETWORKS – you don’t build them to last because that landscape changes quickly
  • Works best when targeted and when used to support other Digital Marketing efforts
  • Heat seeking missiles!
  • Works well ONLY WHEN TARGETED. The difference between a snipper and shooting a shotgun into the air hoping it’ll hit something.
  • Segment within an inch of your database’s life!
  • Those are the tactics at your disposal to grow your power and effectiveness online
  • – but what about customisation? Rather than try to do it all, I’ll talk you through the specific marketing problems each of the four tactics are best suited to solve and we can take examples from around the room too.
  • This section will form the first part of a DIGITAL MARKETING STRATEGY that at the end of the seminar, you can go back to your offices and fill out for your own organisation and then start to action. Here, I’ll list the problems then show you how to approach them using the flipchart. And to make it more relevant – I’ll illustrate it with examples from the audience.
  • Accounting firm
  • Accounting firm
  • RSPCA case study for SEO – known for animal shelters but wanted to be known for training and pet care services
  • Start on ad words to test key phrases – then use popular key phrases to identify what terms to search for. Search those terms to find the websites you need to link build and syndicate content to. (if you can’t beat em, join em!)
  • Examples of where RSPCA syndicates content
  • Examples of where RSPCA syndicates content
  • Examples of where RSPCA syndicates content
  • To build larger profile for pet care tips, rspca sent an email to simon’s cat creator and he made a little cartoon for them for their holiday campaign
  • Result was over 12 million views – for the cost of one email (lesson is to find ambassadors who already have an audience)
  • Swansea Uni
  • Accounting firm
  • Lloyd’s for customer service – quick, agile (the biggest change was getting internal buy-in and working with compliance to set-up the rules around it)
  • Results in reduction in fraud because people are able to report phishing scams and be told about protecting their details before it gets out of control (e.g. anecdote about person who tweeted their details)
  • ASOS – king of facebook brands
  • Army of actively engaged fans
  • They don’t just post content from the shop…
  • They reward veryactive facebook fans by letting them audition to become fashion bloggers who then create enhanced content about the products…
  • That receive comments powered by facebook! (it’s a circular path for users – never a deadend)
  • What to do when social media hates you? Cairn an Energy company – Europe’s largest independent oil and gas exploration and development companies BUT NOT PUBLIC FACING. First to drill in a particular area of the ocean that GREENPEACE took offence to…
  • So greenpeace filled their offices with polar bears and launched a full-scale protest against cairn on all comms channels
  • We did a quick analysis of the situation and revealed the best course of action is to target responses only to Cairns’ actual audiences (who are limited) and to wait for the Greenpeace pressure to switch to the next company to start drilling. Was particularly good advice because Cairn only had a handful of people on its comms team but would have looked like the big bad corporation lashing out (davey and goliath) even though greenpeace has thousands of active supporters to rage full scale comms war.
  • Welsh athletics – people only think of them during the summer months when their athletes are most busy
  • Accounting firm
  •  StockholmsStadsmission helps the homeless of Stockholm. They need to get their message out without media spending.
  • Website is purposefully ugly (and they had no budget!). To inspire blogs and sites to supply free media space, they created a collection of homeless banners in need of shelter, available on hemlosabanners.se
  • Once embedded, banners would display how long they had been hosted, and by whom. They also developed a warmer color the more clicks they received and the longer they were hosted. All clicks led to StockholmsStadsmission's donation page.
  • Word was spread only through existing supporters and staff through email and social media
  • Once embedded, banners would display how long they had been hosted, and by whom. They also developed a warmer color the more clicks they received and the longer they were hosted. All clicks led to StockholmsStadsmission's donation page.
  •   * 415 participating sites * 36 million impressions* 300% increase in donations compared to the same period last year.
  • Charity example
  • Accounting firm
  • Decided to target Spanish-speaking demographic during Alzheimer’s Awareness Month but had no Latin people in its existing base
  • Wanted to approach Univision – largest spanish network online – but needed a hook. When would users on Univision be most sympathetic and open to supporting Alzheimers??
  • …when they’ve forgotten their own password!
  • Alzheimer’s had Univision add this piece of text to the automatically generated password reset emails
  • (Without any media spend whatsoever)
  • Part two is about crafting campaigns
  • Lindz
  • Lindz: The sector in a panic about the reaction to tuition hikes
  • Lindz: Students mistrustful of unis, worried about future, etc
  • Louise: Tuition and policy landscape
  • Louise: Reasons why Cardiff stood to lose most
  • Lindz: Intro art of war
  • Lindz: The 5 elements that describe any competitive world
  • Louise
  • Louise: Campaign objective
  • Louise: Top students from top schools
  • Louise: Also top students from outside the top schools (e.g. widening access)
  • Lindz
  • Lindz: Overall scene and timing of the campaign
  • Lindz:Anger, fears and reactions within the sector (e.g. English unis marketing in Wales)
  • Lindz: Couldn’t present a marketing message
  • Lindz: But that’s all the university had
  • Lindz: prospective students trusting their peers more than marketers
  • Lindz: what real students look like – but how do you put this on an official website? (you don’t)
  • Louise
  • Louise: Traditional marketing at Cardiff and the need to go digital
  • Louise: Open days, prospectuses, and each academic school doing their own thing
  • Louise: Restrictive web presence, traditional brand
  • Lindz
  • Lindz: Cardiff Uni know its audiences and have the resources, Precedent know the sector and the technology
  • Lindz: Started with a concept ‘bait for smart people’
  • Lindz: And grew into action plans for social media, the web, print, email, and events
  • Louise and Lindz
  • Lindz: Both teams heavily involved and engaged with one another. Phone calls, team meetings, and ideas being developed back and forth.
  • Louise: Student created content and the freedom of having it on a microsite
  • Lindz: The hook, to get them to look at the great content
  • Lindz: The insiders to facilitate the competition but also create that sense of having an older brother or sister already at cardiff
  • Louise: How youtube was used to select finalists and the academic rigour of the competition
  • Louise: The delight of seeing ‘cardiff-type personalities’ shining through the videos and levels of creativity
  • Lindz
  • Louise:
  • Lindz:
  • Louise: effect on applications but also the general boost to awareness etc
  • Louise: Internal buy-in and understanding of THRIVE and what it’s meant to achieve (e.g. we can’t pretend to be 17)
  • Louise: Moments from open day
  • Lindz: And what happens when you do something meaningful with social media integration
  • For SEO…(Left to right) Techie to check code for spider traps, SEO specialist to figure out keyphrases and find opportunities to link build and syndicate, strategist to set business objectivesFoot soldiers to follow plans by building links, syndicating content, cleaning code, etc.
  • Now you can launch an invasion
  • For Social media your SEO specialist is replaced with a creative who’s good at thinking up fun, engaging ideasFoot soldiers replaced with ordinary staff who are conversational
  • Now you can build your outpost
  • For PPC and Emails…Techie to build the ads, Strategist to set goals and business objectivesDesigner to design the ads and a Specialist Copywriter (who’s wearing a clown nose because he also needs to be a bit creative and fun)
  • Now you can launch missiles at your targets
  • Or take them out target audience segment by target audience segment with sniper-like efficiency
  • And if you’re missing one of these roles in your organisation…
  • That’s where we come in!
