Three categories of platforms • Listening • Influencer identification • Engagement platforms: tools that do content management and help you push your message across platforms• In the traditional world, we know what buckets people fell into. We now have influencers. What do we do with them? Where does influence end? • Like HubSpot: • Pardot cited as a company that provides an affordable product that helps distill the data from your CRM • Marketing Automation is where the return on investment appears with the CRM •Social TV: Its impact on Television Programming and AdvertisingMike ProulxHill Holliday@McProulx 1. Introduction 1. WE are watching more television than ever before 2. TV is still at the center of our living rooms 3. Whats different a. Convergence across different media b. Social TV: convergence of social media and TV 4. TV is no longer a "traditional" medium. We must experience TV as a new medium 5. Three Shifts That make TV a new medium a. Feedback: i.

Who is the social customer today? At the end of it, customers are still customers. They want to feel like they got a good deal, they look to their friends for advice. In the old days we would buy from people we knew. We now look to our internet "friends" to do our research. They are also connecting with brands to influence decisions The overwhelming amount of information. The paradox of choice: the more choices that are available, the more stress in the decision. Your social media should make the decision easier, not harder. Social media hasnt changed anything, just the scale. People would still talk and ask about companies, brands, and products. But is it different generationally? Digital Natives (those raised on the technology) are circumventing systems College text books: Publishers dont care about students - they sell to the professor, and assume the students will have to purchase the book. They are now finding ways around the system, students are selling books online, cutting the publishing companies and bookstores out of the loop, using the older editions. Students are now going around the whole educational system, looking for free education online
  14. 14. If you cant sell them on what you have, you have to change what you are selling The sales process becomes keeping in touch with customers to keep top-of-mind.

We used to tell customers to line up for use. We now must figure out how to line up for them. The challenge of big data: how do you act on all the information that is available?
