  • 15. Social media empowers your customers—whether you like it or not.
    Through reviews
    Through WOM
    Through blogs
    Through status updates
    Status update example: “Thanks American Airlines for losing my bags and making me wait for ten hours in the terminal.”
    United Airlines Breaks Guitars:
    The new Customer Power
  • 16. The strategy for successful social marketing is about:
    your ideal customer,
    their need
    how you, or your product, satisfies that need.
    Integral to creating a great experience.
    Think of your SM presence as a product in itself and integrate it into your sales process.
    Overall Strategy
  • 17. Think about social media marketing less as a commercial and more as a conversation you would have at a networking event.
    When at a networking event everyone knows why you are there but everyone hates the uninteresting guy that just wants to talk about his own business.
    Apply the 80/20 rule and be of value to your audience:
    80% provides independent value to the customer
    20% self-promotion that is still valuable
    SMM-a conversation, not a commercial
  • 18. MUST have a quality website as a home base for your customers.
    Provides an outlet to gain more information about your company and brand.
    Product design, appearance, cost
    Points of differentiation
    Provide an important venue for a call to action like:
    New product launch
    The website can serve as the point of convergence for your social media marketing efforts.
    Website-the new storefront
  • 19. Indirect Marketing:
    Marketing that is not primarily intended to solicit an immediate purchase.
    Brand building
    Creating a following via content
    Direct marketing:
    Solicits an immediate purchase
    Promotional offers
    Use both. Social media is long-term, indirect marketing to build a following, then direct marketing to generate sales.
    Direct vs. indirect marketing
  • 20. Online marketing: Using social media
    Facebook, Twitter
    YouTube videos
    Industry groups and forums
    Offline: Traditional techniques
    Face-to-face networking—e.g. Rotary, LinkAnnapolis
    Seminars and workshops—how-to seminars at West Marine
    Print advertising
    Face-to-face sales
    Networking events
    Use bothintegrated into your sales process.
    Online vs. offline
  • 21. Pull Marketing:
    generated by consumers who actively seek out or ask for information about products and services
    Push Marketing:
    generated by businesses that push messages and information out to customers with the intent of generating interest in the customer.
    Best to use both.
    Pull vs. Push Marketing
  • 22. In the new age of customer-focused marketing the four C’s are:
    The new Four C’s of marketing
    The Referral Engine, John Jantsch
  • 23. Content
    Educates or provides utility to the customer.
    Focus not on selling but on providing valuable content to your customer.
    Make information relevant to your customer.
    Create something of value that will allow you to “touch” your customers on a daily or weekly basis.
    Four C’s continued
  • 24. Connection
    Solve simple problems that your customers may have in a way they can understand and get behind.
    Use both online and offline techniques
    Communities once defined by geography, now defined by ideas and interests.
    Create a community around your business
    Make your customers proud to be your customers
    Four C’s continued
  • 25. By providing great content and building a following for your business you:
    Increase your online exposure for the purpose of SEO.
    The more content you have on the web the more likely your business will pop up for key word searches.
    Keep you and your business in front of the customer,
    i.e. increase touch points. So when you have promotions, events, new products or press releases you can publicize them for “free”.
    Establish you or your business as the industry leader or expert
    Be the must-have for your product or service.
    Increase your communication with customers.
    Find out what they like and, more importantly, what they don’t like.
    The idea behind social Media
  • 26.
  • 27. Social Media process
  • 28. Ideal Customer Life cycle
    The Referral Engine, John Jantsch
  • 29. Each step in the process should lead the customer to the next step in your sales process with a call to action.
    Example: You get a print ad for a pizza place in your mailbox with an offer. At the bottom of the ad it says, “like us on Facebook at to keep up to date on great deals.”
    Life Cycle continued
  • 30. First impression of your company
    Need clear brand message conveying your point of differentiation. Findingyour “purple” is more important than ever.
    you are not just competing geographically, you are competing world-wide.
    Creating a following and community:
    Facebook ads
    Daily Candy: Daily updates on new products.
    Posting on someone else’s blog, linking back to your media (Facebook, your blog, etc.)
  • 31. Once the customer knows your company they will need a venue to:
    like it,
    follow it and
    refer others to it.
    Does your website, Facebook page, YouTube videos and other social media send the same message?
    Is that message seamlessly communicated throughout your brand, including your physical store and business cards?
  • 32. The customer needs to trust your company
    Third party reviews online: both good and bad.
    Comments on your Facebook page or Google.
    Provide useful content beyond self-promotion.
    Make sure brand message is focused and consistent.
    With the content you provide, follow the 80/20 rule.
  • 33. Give your customer the opportunity to “try” or experience your product.
    This could be:
    Trial offers that lower the risk or cost of trying your product.
    A YouTube video that gives your customer the experience of your product. Example: YouTube out-of-the-box reviews of the new iPhone.
    Great photos on your website or FB page that demonstrate the value of your product.
    A seminar or workshop that showcases your skills and shows that you are the industry expert.
    YouTube, How-to videos
  • 34. The whole point of all this is to actually convert to sales, not to have a huge following on twitter.
    Provide a clear path for your customers to access your product
    Link your Facebook page to your website where customers can purchase your product.
    Your “social face” should have your brand name in it so people can find your website or store.
    Use the following you have built up to promote your product
    But remember the 80/20 rule.
  • 35. Once the customer knows, likes, trusts, tries and actually buys your product the hardest part is done.
    You now need to keep up with that customer and make them a champion for your company.
    Ask them to write a review.
    If they are not already, bring them into your social network.
    Send them personal Facebook messages thanking them for your business or send periodic public wall posts thanking your customers.
    Urge them to refer other friends to your Facebook page or website.
    Offer discounts for those who refer other people.
  • 36. Inventory your assets:
    What do you do better than anyone else and what assets do you have that your customers would find valuable?
    Find out what media people who care about your product are using.
    Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn
    Web searches and reviews, yelp
    Talk to customers or potential customers to better understand them.
    Segment your market:
    With the new social web you can segment customers based on what media they use and how they interact with your business and product and others.
    Identify and target your ideal customer:
    Who would find your greatest assets the most valuable and how will you reach them?

  • 41. Staple yourself to an order
    Once you have your ideal customer identified and your SMM strategy “staple” yourself to an order to better understand how your customer experiences your company.
    You can do this yourself or have a friend do it and look over their shoulder.
    How easy is it for your customer to find your company?
    What messages and images do they see first?
    How easy is it to purchase your product or contact you for more information?
    What content are they hit with the most and what message does that content send?
