  • Forbes found the average age of CEOs across industries was 50 years  old.  They are Boomers.  They are function over form folks. The market is changing as the Millennials – the largest generation in US History – take over purchasing power and become the leading influence on market expectations.  The trends in social media started before the current trends in social business.  Millennials were adopting social media technology as students, well before they started careers. But this too is changing now.  If you have employees or peers 32 years old or younger, you have Millennials working for you.  Millennials are in the workforce and have started to rise to positions where their expectations can exert force in the enterprise. Witness the rise of the flexible work week, bring your own device allowances and the explosion of B2B social business software.  There would be no explosion of social business software if there was not a market to sell into.The shift is happening now.  If the adoption curve of the iPad and adoption rates of smart phones have taught us one thing,  it is that form is gaining on function in the market.  Feature bloat is not as importantto the market as simplicity and the ability to do the one or two things I actually need.  Agile development methods focusing on minimum viable products rather than soup-to-nuts feature lists bring more options to the market more quickly that happen to be substantially more affordable – even free in many cases.For example, the social analytics and buzz tracking market represents a slow shift of big enterprise to intentionally engage in the social networking world.  Lithium Technology – a leader in social business monitoring, buzz-tracking and customer engagement just the other day announced that it secured an additional $53 Million in serried D funding .  This is a huge vote of confidence in the new mode of social business – driven by Millennial habits.  It is also a huge vote of confidence in the focus and depth of new technology.Information Cite: Billy Cripe, “Enterprise Software and the Millennial Shift”http://www.socialbusinessnews.com/enterprise-software-and-the-millennial-shift/January 19, 2012Image Cite: Creative Commons Attribution:  Some rights reserved by CarstenSchertzerhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/jonathanschertzer/6518638737/sizes/l/in/photostream/
  • You need 3 things: 1) an audience strategy, 2) a channel strategy, 3) a social strategyStudies by the 2.0 Adoption Council and ReadWriteWeb show the median salary for social media workers is $114,000. This is not an intern or entry-level position. It is better aligned with Director levels and up. It is also not only an IT position. While IT is certainly involved, it is increasingly the business units who are responsible for keeping up engagement. IT rolls out the technology. Business builds and engages the community.What the Social Business Professional Gets Paid [infographic], by Alex Williams, May 13, 2011, http://www.readwriteweb.com/enterprise/2011/05/what-the-social-business-profe.php, accessed June 20, 2011 http://www.flickr.com/photos/grrphoto/246147199/sizes/l/in/photostream/Creative Commons Attribution Some rights reserved by R'eyes

  • You need help with this. Accept that the landscape has changed. Social & Millennials are here to stay. The communication paradigms have changed for good.When you figure out what you’re after then you can reach your through the best social channels.Target your strategies to your audience and goals – meet them where they’re at!Is your purpose to drive down call center and support costs by increasing customer self-service? Then post information online and use social listening to identify problems before they erupt.Is your purpose to engage new markets? Then start promoting new valuable content to people and companies in your target markets. Whitepapers, webinars, ROI calculators, how-to videos – they wont generate traffic themselves. Use Twitter to amplify your message, Use facebook to engage in the deeper discussion, drive people to your website to download the plans, the prototypes, the documentation etc.Is your purpose to get competitive intelligence and new ideas? Share ideas on Pinterest and ask your customers to post their best ideas. Give prizes and recognition to the best ideas (that’s called “gamification” folks!)http://www.freshlimemarketing.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/Golden-Circle-Concept-Simon-Sinek.pnghttp://www.ted.com/talks/simon_sinek_how_great_leaders_inspire_action.html
