    The digital / social “bolt on”
    Do you recognise this picture?
    How many of you consider your digital activities to be integrated seamlessly into everything you do?

    Digital is not ...
    a new team or department.
    something to procure, design or manage separately.
    Digital does…
    require new skills.
    bring new opportunities, and threats.
    But think about it. Would you have…

    The Cluetrain Manifesto
    The Internet allows markets to revert back to the days when a market was defined by people gathering and talking amongst themselves about buyer reputation, seller reputation, product quality and prices.
    This was lost for a while as the scale of organisations and markets outstripped the facility for consumers to coalesce. The consumers’ conversation is now reignited.

    Social analytics
    If you could go back to the mid-90s and offer a marketer a little box that could sit on her desk and let her listen in on thousands of customer conversations and participate in those discussions regardless of geography or time zone, it would appear so far-fetched that she’d probably call security.
    The Social Web Analytics eBook 2008, Philip Sheldrake.

  • 13. //Changes everything .3
    Social analytics is the application of search, indexing, semantic analysis and business intelligence technologies to the task of identifying, tracking, listening to and participating in the distributed conversations about a particular brand, product or issue, with emphasis on quantifying the trend in each conversation's sentiment and influence.

    Perception is reality
    May have been a relevant axiom for 20th Century marketing and PR practice, but now…
    Reality is perception
    Real-time social marketing and PR must, by nature, be authentic. Real-time PR marks the death of ‘spin’. You can’t fake it.

    the latest thinking from AMEC
    4th Swiss Conference on Communications Controlling

    15
  • 16. 2010
    //AMEC Barcelona Principles
    • Goal setting and measurement are important
    • 17. Media measurement requires quantity and quality
    • 18. AVEs are not the value of public relations
    • 19. Social media can and should be measured
    • 20. Measuring outcomes is preferred to measuring media results (outputs)
    • 21. Organisational results and outcomes should be measured whenever possible
    • 22. Transparency and replicability are paramount to sound measurement.
    4th Swiss Conference on Communications Controlling
    30th June 2011
    16
  • 23. //AVEs
    Advertising value equivalence is a specious sum based on false assumptions using an unfounded multiplier, only addressing a fraction of the PR domain.

    “The world of online marketing has been suffering from a delusion of precision and an expectation of exactitude.”

    //AMEC valid metrics framework
    19
  • 26. 2011
    //Applying the AMEC framework
    From the Lisbon conference:
    Select relevant metrics.
    Track over time to identify trends.
    Consider plotting the ‘Target Audience Effect’ outcome metrics against the ‘Intermediary Effect’ metrics.
    Not exhaustive – may be other metrics that are appropriate to the campaign being measured.

  • 29. //So what?
    As Katie Delahaye Paine likes to say, if you want to know how good your metrics are –
    ask “So what?” three times.

    ROI is a measure of the financial return secured for the capital employed.
    The AMEC Lisbon delegates rated the measurement of public relations ROI their number 1 priority.

  • 31. //Intangibles .1
    20th Century business was built around tangible assets (land, plant & machinery).
    The 21st Century business is more reliant on intangibles (intellectual property, brand, reputation, social dialogue), for which traditional accounting analyses are poorly designed.
    4th Swiss Conference on Communications Controlling
    30th June 2011
    25
  • 32. //Intangibles .2
    Intangible assets tend to only have strategic value when they're 'in the mix'.
    30th June 2011
    4th Swiss Conference on Communications Controlling
    26
  • 33. //Balanced Scorecard
    So that's one reason why Kaplan and Norton developed the Balanced Scorecard approach, designed to augment the lagging (financial) indicators of business success, with non-financial drivers of future financial performance.

  • 34. //Influence
    You have been influenced when you think in a way you wouldn’t otherwise have thought, or do something you wouldn’t otherwise have done.

    //The Six Influence Flows .1
    4th Swiss Conference on Communications Controlling
    29
  • 36. //The Six Influence Flows .2
    A new and simple model to think about what we’re trying to achieve.
    Avoids words and phrases that come with the ‘baggage’ of historic and current use and misuse otherwise likely to confuse or narrow our thinking.
    30th June 2011
    4th Swiss Conference on Communications Controlling
    30
  • 37. //Influence Scorecard .1
    How can we systematically learn from and manage influence flows?
    How do we define, develop, and execute a consistent and coherent influence strategy?
    How do we prioritize investments in influence-related human, information, and organisational capital?
    Kaplan and Norton’s strategy map tool and Balanced Scorecard framework are well suited to these efforts.
    4th Swiss Conference on Communications Controlling
    30th June 2011
    31
  • 38. //Influence Scorecard .2
    The Influence Scorecard serves as both the methodology for defining influence strategy and the tool for executing it.
    It’s a subset of the Balanced Scorecard, contains all the influence-related objectives and metrics extracted from their functional silos.
    4th Swiss Conference on Communications Controlling
    30th June 2011
    32
  • 39. //Influence Scorecard .3
    Consider the hypothetical instance of two organisations designing, executing and analysing exactly the same public relations strategy delivering precisely the same results for the same investment.
    4th Swiss Conference on Communications Controlling
    30th June 2011
    33
  • 40. //Influence Scorecard .4
    The two organisations are different (different missions, visions, values and objectives).
    Their priorities will differ, and so therefore will their portfolio of investments in all kinds of assets.
    And so the specific role PR plays will be different, and so therefore its contribution to success; its ROI.
    4th Swiss Conference on Communications Controlling
    30th June 2011
    34
  • 41. //Influence Scorecard .5
    AMEC’s working group asserts:
    “ROI = ROIROI = Money In, Money OutTotal Value of PR > ROITotal Value of PR = Tangible + IntangibleTotal Value of PR = Near-Term + Long-Term”
    The Influence Scorecard encompasses tangibles & intangibles, near- and long-term.
    30th June 2011
    4th Swiss Conference on Communications Controlling
    35
  • 42. //Influence Scorecard .6
    Ultimately, the ease and effectiveness with which we manage and learn from influence flows is integral to the ways all stakeholders interact with organisations to broker mutually valuable, beneficial relationships.

  • 43. //ROI .1
    When the boss rules
    ‘Look, I’m told we’re investing in this. Now we just need to work up the numbers to get it through finance.’
    When efficiency rules
    ‘This investment will speed the process up.’ ‘Er, but it’s not actually a bottleneck.’
    When the guru rules
    ‘Well the book’s at number 1.’
    When last year rules
    ‘Well we did it this way last year ...’
    30th June 2011
    4th Swiss Conference on Communications Controlling
    37
  • 44. //ROI .2
    When the competition rules
    ‘They’ve gone for it, so ...’
    When vanity rules
    ‘We can afford it and it’ll be a testament to our time.’
    When experience rules
    ‘Do you think the CMO’s background in advertising sways the budgeting process?’
    30th June 2011
    4th Swiss Conference on Communications Controlling
    38
  • 45. //ROI .3
    When rules rule
    ‘Let’s treat it as three separate projects so each comes under the limit demanding cost justification.’
    When paralysis rules
    ‘I just don’t know.’
    And when all else fails – when cost rules
    ‘Just make a decision on a least-cost basis because this sort of thing never has a tangible ROI.’

    I prefer it when strategy rules…
    the Influence Scorecard approach.
