  • Roger Jones | Geek in a suit Digital Marketing Consultant with Actionable Insight Honorary Research Fellow with the University of Roehampton Understand the worlds of search, social and content The power (looking forward) is in the data Geographical is the next layer of intelligence to be leveraged (in the main stream)Wouldn’t it be interesting to eradicate the word “Where”Angle | My role today is add context, angles of thinking and ask Socratic questionsHappy Buffday | Carlos Rodriguez | AKQA
  • Perspective (Inclusions and exclusions)Mary Portas and Bill GrimseyHigh street store closing and local independent stores opening Why?Hierarchically, we are looking at:Out of Town Shopping Centres (I hate them but they have their place)(Interesting to see on Bloomberg Business re Tesco Watford where they have generated the first wave of Out of Town High Streets)(Generated as they say out of a need state)(Why didn’t they just buy the High Street???The High Street (Clone town)(one to many)(concept simply outdated)Independent stores (Economic shift)(Need state as much as a nice to have)The Internet and predominantly mobile commerceWhy?Can the high street retailer learn to look, behave and engage like a local independent store?Why?There are 2 separate things going on here; The first is the overheads vs turnover battle being waged by the Out of Town Shopping Centres x The High Street x Independent stores x Internet and mobile commerceThe second is how they communicate, engage and induce loyalty?Angle | We will concentrate on the latter Can retail brands mirror the success of some independent stores by becoming more local with social?
  • To add even greater context |Estates of the Realm(Mark Warren and Chris Caffyn)Introduction | RogerWorld Wikipedia theory | How The Conversation came about…Hierarchical | Conceived society | Demonstrate the power shift in communications Duplicitous analogy | Times (RelevanceFrench Middle Ages) & Organisation (Parliament)Angle | Consider |Roles & Responsibilities & Remuneration In other words – how story telling has evolved over time (bear with me – it gets there)Can retail brands mirror the success of some independent stores by becoming more local with social?

  • Observations Technology is at last catching (nowhere near completely) with civilizationGeographical intelligence (First iteration of web 3.0)Key opinion leaders have always existed now just easier to find by quantifying their reach, resonance and relevance Where are you on the scale from 4 to 5?What is your digital maturity?What is stopping you? Why are you not already doing this?How many of YOUR sales and marketing tactics and mechanics involve one to many communications?It will take George Bernard Shaw’s to make the change3 waves of organisation (Challenger)(Sales and marketing)(Critical mass)Talk is cheap – conversation is expensive (Shift is all consuming)Ocean going liner analogy (if relevant)The Future of eCommerce talk (Legacy IT systems, Mergers and acquisitions, business priority and business critical)Angle | Do you trust every single one of your employees to be your perfect brand ambassador? (Many CEO’s say NO)Can retail brands mirror the success of some independent stores by becoming more local with social?
  • Key Opinion Leaders Always existed I love what Dan Doherty is doing with Putney Social and Ben Black with Cwmbran Life Unofficial Lord Mayors (Registering every business in a post code and replacing the local newspaper)They now exist in your community and that of your customer Aquatic Centre in Hull used local taxi drivers and hairdressers Angle | There has always been a town Mayor!Can retail brands mirror the success of some independent stores by becoming more local with social?
  • Future visionWhat does a networked community and local social look like?Brand perspective understanding of:Search x Social x Content (The Jet Stream Methodology)Adding known data sources and geographical intelligence (Layer Cake) Creating digitally efficient content (Video x pictures x words)Understanding (and integrating) your off and online user experience (single point perspective of the customer)I have looked at you all on LinkedIn, Twitter and …Angle | Why? (you know this is right so why aren’t you doing it?)Can retail brands mirror the success of some independent stores by becoming more local with social?
  • The Jet Stream MethodologyThe Jet Stream Methodology co-joins the historically siloed disciplines of search, social and content to form the most digitally efficient engagement programmes – for any organisation!Angle | The methodology builds up (and down) layers of search, social and content data Can retail brands mirror the success of some independent stores by becoming more local with social?
  • Search The search universe is calculated from the most relevant key phrases in Google, Yahoo and Bing according to competitive analysis, language, seasonality, trending, geography intelligence and device – then validated with PPC to ensure absolute accuracySearch defines the language Social The social universe is made up of the positive mentions and deep and meaningful conversations in social space measured with BrandwatchSocial defines the space Content The content universe is an index of the number of owned vs. user generated content assets that exist in social space and how it moves Content defines the engagementAngle | Currently separate data silos Can retail brands mirror the success of some independent stores by becoming more local with social?
  • Building up and down the layers Once we have built up a picture for the base level (and benchmarked) the process is repeated for the niche, industry and aspirational life style space To identify the Jet Stream opportunity Then flip it to look at the super niche (and local area networks) which is where the real fun begins
  • The Jet Stream Methodology maps the data and identifies vacuum gaps thereby creating actionable insight to inform creation of the most digitally efficient engagement programmes.
  • Key findings Search is directly related to salesSocial is directly related to customer satisfactionContent is directly related to campaign / programme communications (ultimately media spend)Angle | Hindsight is great but predictive (and backing your work) is where the money is 
  • Stories (Digitally efficient content)Many business don’t’ understand their GIVES and GETSCurrent norm is words, pictures and videos Why not reverse the trend to video, pictures and words (Generate cascading content)Are you optimising all content correctly (YouTube captions story (funny) – if relevant)Angle | Why not?Can retail brands mirror the success of some independent stores by becoming more local with social?
  • Layer Cake Generic data (Office of National Statistics / Experian)Know data (Customer database | Branch | Store | Pop UpSearch (Google)Social (Engage121)Content (Search Metrics)Map (Map Info)Key opinion leaders Nuances of language, conversation and vibe Angle | Real time data Can retail brands mirror the success of some independent stores by becoming more local with social?

  • As Roger has outlined in eloquent detail. We are in the midst of a dramatic Local transformation, enabled by Social Media and Mobile. This shift is changing the way we communicate, interact with each other and connect with Local businesses of all sizes. As consumers increasingly look for tailored products and services, brands are moving away from a ’cookie-cutter’ approach and adapting according to location.
  • Over the next short while I want to look at what some of the household names are doing but also what some less well known clients of ours are doing in the US where the local social media market is more evolved.In doing this I want to reflect on where the success lie for both the corporate entity and the local store/branch.
  • Clearly, George Cadbury had his own business agenda when he bought 120 acres of land close to [the Bourneville factory] and planned, at his own expense, a model village which would ‘alleviate the evils of modern more cramped living conditions’. By 1900, the estate included 314 cottages and houses set on 330 acres of land. [source] In 1893
  • Roll forward 120 years – and we see Tesco revamped its Tesco Extra in Watford this month to appeal and add to the community. It now includes coffee house Harris + Hoole, Giraffe, The Bakery Project and bakers Euphorium, as well as a new F+F concession.Not quite social house but importantly there will also be a pharmacy, opticians and a community space which local groups can book and use free of charge.Big retail spaces need to compete with online shopping so the stores need to be more exciting and ‘not just places to shop, but places to spend time with family and friends and enjoy a coffee or meal’. Earlier this year Tesco also announced it would use space at its Stockton Extra branch into a leisure facility which may include a gym, a children’s play area and a day nursery.This is perhaps one of the biggest examples of a brand tailoring itself to the local area but it is a strategy that brands including Starbucks, Wholefoods, Puma and Rosewood Hotels & Resorts are also following.
  • Certain locations also prompt a brand to create a tailored approach according to the surroundings. According to Puma, it was one of the first big brands to experiment with the container retail concept.Experience is key to the shift towards bespoke stores and brands have also seen that getting involved in tailored events is a way to get attention in places where they might not otherwise appear
  • At Whole Foods, the local store is the marketing king. Whole Foods local stores are empowered to make decisions about what food they sell and local marketing. Each location has a local marketer on staff.  They have empowered, trained, smart people at the local level and that’s why local social works for us. If you don’t trust the people who are local it’s not gonna work.” The content mix consists of Lifestyle + Transaction. On the global brand level the social media content covers lifestyle topic. People want information, and aspiration. Content on the local level covers transaction topics because customers associate the store location with purchasing, products, and events. They use lifestyle topics on the brand level, then trickle through the local brand where they close the sale. For example: Lifestyle brand story: “Here’s what to cook with strawberries.” Transaction local story: “Strawberries are on sale.” 
  • Sometimes help comes from unlikely sources.Whilst most people still recognise that these activities as marketing, but when the alternative is interruptive advertising selling things people neither want nor need, it’s easy to understand why community-minded marketing gets more positive feedback across different audiences..
  • Brands that get local social right don’t think of it in terms of obligation; they see it as a real opportunity to build mutual value for their brands and their communities.When you have a local high street presence as well as a community focus, the opportunities are even more apparent but the key message I want to get across here is that you don’t have to be enormous global brands for this to work and that’s where SOCIAL MEDIA really comes into its own by levelling the playing field.
  • However I am in danger in overselling the altruistic benefits of local social and the reality is our most fundamental finding from our local social experience has been that our most important role as a service provider to local merchants is to translate the social jargon and buzzwords to retailers' bottom line.  
  • The benefit to CMO's and other Corporate folks is very much about growing their brand's reach by having your local colleagues build their communities organically, but the local store only cares that we show them how their social activity rings the cash register.  Social ultimately is meant to be local because that is where relationships are strongest.But look what happens when you put the combined efforts of the two together. This is a real client of ours, where the corporate company thought they were doing well until we started working with them and their local stores.
  • --Hy-Vee-- - 250 grocery stores across the US targetingmoms. - Primarypain-point was getting store ownerstobringtheirlocalpromotionsand store merchandising to life via social. - The primaryuse of Engage121 services initially was to push Corporate messaging andpriorities down through the localFacebook pages.  It was a bluntintermentto say the least. - Some stores begantousecreativeposting approaches wherethey'd snap a picture of theirfresh new display andlocalgrocerand post itto draw traffic throughlocalrelevance. - After spotting thisorganiclocalinspiration, Hy-Vee and Engage121 partneredtobuildapplicationsthatcanconvert the simplephoto post to real commerce opportunities.  We wound up building a) a "Guess howmany ____." trivia applicationtoenhance the local display draw and b) add a FourSquare Coupon Specials applicationtoprovide a simple template forattractingandrewardingfoot-traffic. - In the most recent week of September, 78% of participating stores werepostingthrough Engage121 weekly.
  • When we began to talk to them about prospecting for foot-traffic, e-mail addresses, coupon redemptions, and contest participation from within the local retailers social community, it clicked for them and our utilization grew swiftly. 
  • Real examples of businessescapturing business --Pump It Up-- - 145 children'sactivity centers (i.e. "BounceHouses") across the US targetingmoms. - The Corporate marketing team createdan Event Calendarthatfocused on a handful of holidayslike Halloween, Black Friday, as well as parent-targetedthemeslike "Date night". - Engage121 tookthis event calendaranddesigned a promotionalapplicationthat a) marketed discounts for e-mail registrationto these events and b) encouraged store gueststo post pictures of theirkidshaving a balltotheir personal socialnetworks.  This goal is tocreate a viral marketing effect whilegenerating customer purchases in the samecampaign. - In the most recent week of September, 70% of participating stores werepostingthrough Engage121 weekly.Wild Birds– not just youth brands (120 stores now involved - 300 specialty retail stores located across the US targeting consumers primarily in their 50's and 60's.  - The application UI emphasizes promotional posting (coupons, newsletter sign-ups, and photo contests) balanced equally with content posting features so the local retailer understands its about growing your community AND asking for the audience's business regularly.
  • Suffice to say any new approach brings misgivings and we do a lot of work to help those clients avoid these pitfalls, but the majority of the time whilst there are teething problems, the results far outweigh them, and as the stores see the success, see the increased footfall, hear the cash registers ring more often they see the benefit and therefore take the time.
