Be where “they” are and participate in their experience<br />Taking the brand message to people where they live online is key to engagement<br />Content that’s relevant, timely, valuable and most importantly—visible, is still critical.<br />Having a solid company site is expected—if users are still interested in learning more or taking action<br />

  • 64. Social Media’s influence on perception<br />The Influence on Perception Spectrum shows that those listening, commenting and responding in the social media realm are more likely to take action then when and organization pushes messages toward them through traditional media. Notice how the social conversation fits within mass and micro messaging (less influence on action to most influence on action, and more brand exposure to more brand experience, respectively.)<br />Influence on Perception Spectrum<br />Most influence on action<br />Less influence on action<br />More brand experience<br />More brand exposure<br />

  • 66. The simple truth: Trust is our online currency<br />Social media won’t necessarily increase business volumes directly.<br />Social media will not replace traditional media or other online tools. <br />Social media is viral; it’s in the hands of the consumer. <br />It will increase consumer’s perceptions of our organization by providing a two-way exchange of conversation, transparency, and integrity. <br />Our credibility in a social media world will come from sharing--versus just stating our expertise. <br />Being a part of the conversation, versus being apart from it, will provide the opportunity to engage with people and embrace their concerns, questions and perceptions.<br />Listening and responding to social media is becoming a customer expectation.<br />
  • 67. Reason’s for social media engagement<br />100% of the message control is impossible in today’s world<br />Trust is shifting towards consumers’ peers<br />We need to improve the quality of the healthcare information on the Internet to remain credible by the consumer<br />Transparency and less control over the message = greater credibility. We may accurately convey a message to our audience; however, the message will be discussed online. It’s the discussions among friends and peers that will provide the credibility.<br />
  • 68. Addressing social media in practice<br />Know our audience. Not just for us to speak to—but to listen to and learn from.<br />Maintain the site. Maintaining and moderating the site regularly by subject matter experts builds credibility. Subject matter experts are viewed as having a higher credibility than a ghostwriter or someone in administration. The maintenance of the site is critical to an engagement strategy’s success. Dedicated staff and resource allocation is a requirement.<br />Look toward success. By developing clear goals and measuring realistic metrics based off those goals, we will determine our online success. Being a part of the conversation is the first step.<br />Give it time. Social media sites are ongoing investments that are relational by nature—versus transactional. Build long-term relationships with people through the course of everyday versus a single encounter.<br />Experiment with incremental improvements. We need to be willing to take risks and experiment. The Web is organic by nature. Nothing is finished; everything evolves.<br />Maintain a Code of Ethics. Our integrity online must match our high level of medical ethics. A link to our guidelines for social media would be made available online, and be referenced in both our Web and employee policies.<br />Create an internal response protocol. Ensure communication/triage reflects the way service recovery typically works.<br />
  • 69. User Experience<br />The wisdom of the crowd has spoken<br />

Four Dimensions on How to Approach a Usability Test<br />Conducting user experience tests can seek to expose factors that influence:<br />Trust<br />Function<br />Perception<br />Improvement<br />Deciding what to test for and what the next steps for organizational commitment is imperative<br />
  • 71. Guiding principles for online engagement<br />Build relationships with people and their lifestyles<br />Create, monitor and maintain awareness and sentiment with the masses<br />Allow individuals to interact with us prior to and post care<br />Provide information that is valuable and timely<br />Allow users to take action relative to where they are<br />Make content easy to access, understand and share<br />Join the conversation—not just announce it<br />Engagement is a goal and interaction is a measurement<br />Listening, responding and serving build credibility<br />Online experiences represent the brand’s digital persona<br />Responses operationalized is critical to serving well and building trust <br />Internal policies, guides and resources are as good as the users who exemplify them<br />
