  2. 2. LESSONS LEARNED FROM THE TRIBALIZATION STUDY SOME FRESH THINKING AROUND COMMUNITIES RECAP OF THE OLD THINKING HOW WILL YOU NOW EVALUATE YOUR COMMUNITY EFFORT? <ul><li>ON THE MENU TODAY (MAYBE) </li></ul>

  4. 4. What’s this tribal thing all about? TRIBALISM IS THE VERY FIRST SOCIAL SYSTEM THAT HUMAN BEINGS EVER LIVED IN, AND IT HAS LASTED MUCH LONGER THAN ANY OTHER KIND OF SOCIETY TO DATE. (WIKIPEDIA)
  5. 5. Why now? SOCIAL MEDIA HAPPENED… A PLATFORM AND CULTURE OF PARTICIPATION HAS EMERGED – GIVING POWER TO ALL YOUR EMPLOYEES, CUSTOMERS AND PROSPECTS TO BEHAVE THE WAY THEY WERE HARDWIRED TO BEHAVE – HUMANLY, TRIBALLY
  6. 6. The motivations allowing this to work… <ul><li>People want to connect with other people </li></ul><ul><li>People want to help and be helped – it’s a reflex! </li></ul><ul><li>People operate either in one of two frameworks: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>social framework </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>market framework </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Understanding the driving forces of communities <ul><li>The more CONTENT you have the more MEMBERS you will get. </li></ul><ul><li>The more MEMBERS you have the more CONTENT you will get. </li></ul><ul><li>The better you match CONTENT and MEMBERS to MEMBER PROFILES the more MEMBERS and CONTENT you will get. </li></ul><ul><li>The easier it is to do TRANSACTIONS the more MEMBERS you will attract. </li></ul>THOSE PILLARS CREATE THE DYNAMICS OF INCREASING RETURNS WHICH HELP COMMUNITIES DELIVER GAME CHANGING RESULTS
  8. 8. And of course… <ul><li>The Technology Infrastructure of the community is important </li></ul><ul><li>The Social Infrastructure of the community is MORE important </li></ul>BUT THEY ARE NOT AFFECTING THE ECONOMICS OF INCREASING RETURNS THAT DELIVER GAME CHANGING RESULTS
  9. 9. SOME FRESH INSIGHTS FROM THE STUDY <ul><li>SECOND ACT: </li></ul>
  10. 10. THINK CONSUMER TRIBES – NOT MARKET SEGMENTS (BEHAVIORS VS. CHARACTERISTICS) <ul><li>FRESH THINKING #1 </li></ul>
  11. 11. Consumer tribes vs. market segments <ul><li>Example: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Market segment: health club members in NYC </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Characteristics: concerned with long term health, fitness, and quality of life, may have income characteristics, etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Consumer Tribe #1: weightlifters </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Behavior: competitive, talk about their goals and achievements </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Consumer Tribe #2: non working moms </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Behavior: they prefer to go to gym in middle of the day, they like to talk/socialize about mommy issues, they prefer not too many people around </li></ul></ul>You would not be able to have a community based on the market segment
  12. 12. THINK MOVEMENTS – NOT MARKETING PROGRAMS <ul><li>FRESH THINKING #3 </li></ul>
  13. 13. Movements vs. Market Programs A Successful MARKETING PROGRAM (will need continuous attention) A Successful Scrapbooking MOVEMENT (Going by itself)
  14. 14. THINK NETWORKS – NOT CHANNELS <ul><li>FRESH THINKING #2 </li></ul>
  15. 15. Think networks – not channels <ul><li>In Traditional Marketing: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Channels of communications </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Channels of product distribution </li></ul></ul><ul><li>In Communities: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Information and recommendations flow through networks </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Buying decisions get made based on networks </li></ul></ul>
  16. 16. THINK BRANDED CONTENT IN A UG CONTEXT – NOT PROMOTIONS <ul><li>FRESH THINKING #3.5 </li></ul>
  17. 17. NEED FOR NEW MANAGEMENT THINKING <ul><li>RECAP OF THE OLD THINKING </li></ul>
  18. 18. Need for new management thinking <ul><li>Community will happen – with or without your help </li></ul><ul><li>Community is not about a new technology platform, new tools, new processes – its about a new social platform and old human 1.0 behaviors that can now scale and infiltrate all business processes </li></ul><ul><li>With community comes social messiness – which requires new forms of leaderships, real transparency and authentic experiences </li></ul>
