We say, ‘We’re here to supportyou if you need us, but we realize that you haveto run your own show.’” —Jessica Jensen, seniormarketing manager, Windows, at Microsoft “Our content management system is the only way we’re being used in China. It’s a way to get content to the team and seed content that makes sense.” —Michael Lazerow, CEO of Buddy MediaTwitter: #eMwebinar © 2012 eMarketer Inc.

  • Three MarketerStrategies:Intel, Ford, Microsoft © 2012 eMarketer Inc.
  • Intel: Harnessing creativity worldwideAlthough it’s recognized as a leader in socialmedia marketing, Intel hit a roadblock“When I took on this role two years ago, our use of social media was very organic and grassroots. A lot of people were doing a lot of things, and we said, ‘Is there any consistency to it? Are we telling a bigger story? Are we connecting the dots?’” —Becky Brown, Director of Social Media © 2012 eMarketer Inc.
  • Intel’s goals• Focus less on products and campaigns and more on creating dialogues with multiple communities• Create a platform that could be used by multiple offices worldwide• Allow employees around the world to share and collaborate to determine what works and what doesn’t © 2012 eMarketer Inc.

  • How Intel handles social media in China Social media is handled locally and not from corporate HQ. Intel shares best practices for community management and engagement. In 2012, Intel plans to “Just because they don’t have Facebook doesn’t preclude them better integrate and from doing similar programs to what coordinate its China social we’re doing on Facebook.” activities. —Becky Brown © 2012 eMarketer Inc.

The chaos of managing multiple social properties will only increase. Don’t assume that what works in the US will translate. Consumers have varying responses to social media marketing. Create channels for sharing. Encourage feedback on strategies, analytics, problems and solutions.Twitter: #eMwebinar © 2012 eMarketer Inc.
