  • Social Media: Propelling the Rise of the Consumer
    “Rather than spending another misguided year trying to “engineer” viral campaigns that will propagate themselves, regardless of consumer intentions, it’s time to refocus our marketing efforts to align with the way that people actually behave.” —Ivan Askwith, Big Spaceship
    “2010 will be the year that social media-fueled technology and behavior is responsible for more content consumption choices than ever before. As the media landscape becomes increasingly fragmented, marketers will need to become more nimble than ever, and start getting on the leading edge of trends, as opposed to waiting for them to emerge.” —Ian Schafer, Deep Focus
    "The most effective digital platforms have shifted from “disruptive” to “productive” by providing a service or utility...[They] fundamentally change the approach from “how we reach our customers” to “how we make their lives better." —Ken Martin, Chief Creative Officer, and Ivan Todorov, CEO & CTO, Blitz

    How CMOs Will Harness Digital Platforms in 2010
    • Countless engagement levels can be leveraged to keep consumers tuned in
    • Brands can be seamlessly integrated into everyday lives of consumers
    • Execution must extend beyond the single touchpoint or the consumer will find other brands to better fulfill his or her needs
    Toolbox.com’s Takeaway
    Consumers are increasingly connected throughout the day via digital channels. For the B2B marketer, this trend represents an opportunity to establish a presence where customers gather, increase touchpoints, share information, and solidify brand awareness among clients and prospects.
    From: “How CMOs Will Harness Digital Platforms in 2010 to Forever Change The Way Consumers Interact With Brands”
  • Summary
    In 2010, and the years to follow, the burden of success will have less to do with simply getting noticed and everything to do with driving participation
    Consumers today expect a joystick – whether real or metaphoric – with which to control their media, entertainment, relationships and consumption
    Most importantly, marketers will increasingly need to draw upon the principles of gaming in order to understand, enable and communicate with a population that relishes a game in any form
    Toolbox.com’s Takeaway
    Social media contributors and consumers are driven by the same spirit of competition and self-improvement that motivates gamers. Establish your company’s relevancy in these interactions by recognizing and supporting user merit systems in the social media space to transform the highest achievers into champions of your brand.
    Game Principles Reflected in Digital Marketing

    The Future Belongs to Mobile Technology
    Nielsen reports that one quarter of all phones sold last year were smartphones
    40% of iPhone/iTouch users access the internet more on their mobile than their desktop (Nielsen)
    Mobile is unique among marketing vehicles in that it effectively bridges the gap between the analog and digital worlds. The net effect can dramatically amplify the effect of marketing communications
    Toolbox.com’s Takeaway
    With an ever-increasing number of consumers using mobile devices for a variety of everyday tasks, mobile will be a strong play for B2B marketers in 2010. The mobile platform is tomorrow’s essential collaboration tool, necessitating an equally important shift to applications that directly support the use of social media by the mobile business workforce.

    From: “40% of Your Opportunity is Shifting to Mobile...Are You?”
  • Viral Marketing: Powered by the Consumer
    Viral isn’t what a marketing campaign is, but how that campaign spreads
    How & Why People Share
    Contributing (1-to-Many)
    Broadcasting (1-to-World)
    Gifting (1-to-1/Few)
    Toolbox.com’s Takeaway
    B2B marketing efforts should start with an understanding of the needs and motivations that guide consumer decisions and social behaviors. A truly viral campaign is chiefly driven by the worth and relevancy of its content; each consumer who passes the content becomes an ad-hoc brand champion.
    From: “Stop Spreading Viruses & Start Giving Gifts”
  • Evolution of the Social Media Consumer
    Consumers are more connected to brands and each other than they ever have been before
    Social media-fueled technology and behavior is responsible for more content consumption choices than ever
    Brands are going to have to not only up the ante when it comes to content creation, but figure out efficient ways to get that content in front of the people most likely to share it with others
    Toolbox.com’s Takeaway
    The two-way conversational capability which attracts consumers to the social media platform makes it ideally suited as an enhancement to existing Customer Relationship Management systems. Integrating social media into every level of the B2B relationship is an important step toward moving prospects from awareness to consideration to final decision.
    From: “The Social Evolution of Consumer Consumption and How It Will Impact Your Marketing Plans”
