  • Today’s Internet The Reputation EconomyWhat’s changed? What’s expected?
  • Conversations happen with or without you Public conversations about your services could impact your reputation
  • You don’t control the message Information exchange is now a conversation, not a broadcast
  • Search Pers on Share Expose Pers on Share Me
  • Small town rules are now global With social media a single bad wordfrom a tastemaker can hurt, just like in a tightly-knit offline community
  • Small Town Rules = Social Media The "Mom and Pop" businesses in our neighborhoods have always followed sound and pragmatic business practices, rooted in developing, maintaining and strengthening relationships with customers... They listened to their customers and used their suggestions to improve the business. They provided great service and found ways to thank their clientele. Social media is really nothing more than the simple application of these business practices in a digital form. Manish Mehta - Dell
  • The web “closes the deal” Even if your products or services arenot sold online, the expectation is that information on them will be there.
  • The web is now “real time” The ability to rapidly respond toquestions or complaints has become a competitive advantage
  • The cost of entry has dropped“Software as a service” or web-basedsubscription services have opened up new, cost effective options.
  • Mobile access is expectedPhones are now powerful enough toview the full web. Customers can and will access online info everywhere.
  • Information sharing is an expectation People now act as “curators” andshare quality information among their circles, you should help them do it
  • Free is essentialWhat are you giving away? Peopleexpect value in exchange for their attention, not teasers or lures.
  • Real world location is relevant Phones are now GPS equipped. Google, Facebook & FourSquare are tying the local and online worlds
  • People trust their friends‣ 78% of customers trust peer recommendations‣ Only 14% trust advertisements.
  • Why has theInternet changed? Social Media.
  • What isSocial Media?
  • It’s about customer relationsIt’s about listening and interacting incommunities where you don’t set the rules.
  • The Social Playing FieldYou’re just a user like any other, soact like one. As an organization you don’t get any special privileges.
  • Social Media is aRapport Building Tool
  • How do you build rapport on Social Media? 2 RESPONSIBILITIES 2 EXCUSES
  • RESPONSIBILITY #1 ListenThe only reward of virtue is virtue; theonly way to have a friend is to be one. -Ralph Waldo Emerson 
  • RESPONSIBILITY #2 Engage‣ Create content to share.Create text, video, pictures that teach, entertain or inform‣ Start discussions‣ Ask & answer questions
  • EXCUSE #1 But we’re boring!Passion is the currency of reputation economy. Choose the social medianetwork where your clients live and where your personality can shine.
  • EXCUSE #2 But we’re busy!Sweat Equity: With all tools free the winners will be the ones who workhardest at establishing relationships.
  • ‣ Share photos and status updates with “friends”, probably ones you’ve met offline‣ #1 destination online‣ 750 million users. 50% use daily‣ Easy tools for businesses
  • ‣ 140 character status updates broadcast publicly‣ People choose to “follow” other users they find interesting‣ Updates are real time. “1 hour ago? Who cares.”‣ Tastemakers and influences
  • ‣ Your online resume and references‣ Less public. Users expected to leverage existing business connections‣ Your professional profile. No games. No pictures. No screwin’ around.
  • ‣ Share short videos‣ Medium allows for unprofessional videography to shine‣ Builds personality in a way that text cannot‣ Second largest search engine to Google
  • ‣ Easy mixed-media blogging‣ Quickly share pictures, videos, text, quotes, and music‣ Users encouraged to re-share items they like‣ Growing rapidly. Very popular among teenage girls
  • ‣ Google’s attempt to build a better mousetrap Facebook‣ Attempts to solve the Facebook privacy problem that “friend” is too broad‣ Went public on TUESDAY.‣ Disruptive.
  • 13 Rules forSocial Media &Today’s Internet
  • 1. Don’t treat social as an advertising channel‣ Social is conversational by nature. People avoid accounts that broadcast one-way only
  • 2. Don’t treat all networks equally‣ LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter all have news feeds, but you should tailor what you share to the audience.
  • 3. Set goals‣ If social seems like a chore then start off with some benchmarks for where and when you’ll check it.‣ Use a monitoring service to provide you with metrics
  • 4. Hustle and spend the time‣ Building rapport takes effort.‣ Building relationships take effort.‣ All things being free...
  • 5. Don’t burn out. Hustle doesn’t scale‣ Being an awesome person online, providing killer personal interaction and content to each person doesn’t scale.‣ I don’t have an answer here.
  • 6. Have some tact‣ Watch for a few days and see how people talk, what slang they use, what they don’t talk about‣ Think “participant observation” like a cultural anthropologist
  • 7. Don’t Break the Implicit Contract‣ You must provide people with something of value in exchange for the imposition.‣ Don’t act like a telemarketer.
  • 8. Don’t Be Opportunistic‣ “friending” has to have context.‣ @ottawabotox followed @jmrlogics‣ Your follower-to-following ratio should look human.
  • 9. Don’t cede controlof your brand identity ‣ Left to a blank canvas your reputation / brand is defined by whatever’s available to fill the void ‣ Give people an outlet for reaching you.
  • 10. Don’t ignoreoffline connections‣ Your strongest evangelists and the easiest people to engage you’ve already met.‣ Your offices, emails, promo materials should direct these people online
  • 10.5. BUT think first‣ Explain WHY someone should engage with you online.‣ Just slapping a logo on your printed material is not enough when everyone’s doing it.
  • 11. “Set and Forget” is dangerous ‣ Automated updates have no soul, are not conversational ‣ Vast difference between “I tweet” and “I own a Twitter account”
  • 12. ROI isn’t going to be clear‣ Create ways of measuring success, but don’t expect ROI to be clear‣ Do you measure the ROI of talking to people in person? On the phone?
  • 13. Be flexible‣ Facebook is a business. The rules change, the network changes, the website changes as time goes on (often suddenly)‣ > 750,000,00 people since 2004
