  • 4. Media<br />Social Media 101<br />Understanding The Shift<br />
  • 5. The World Will Never Be The Same<br />Social media has fundamentally shifted how we communicate, gather information, make decisions, express ourselves and interact—both with others and with brands.<br />Consumers of all ages have embraced the changes much quicker than companies, and expect brands to engage with them in these new channels in smart, meaningful ways. <br />The operative word: engage.<br />
  • 6. The Numbers Show the Shift<br /> How consumers and brands interact with each other has fundamentally shifted…<br />Even within the last year:<br /><ul><li>100k+ iPhone apps and counting
  • 7. Twitter explosion : 50MM tweets per day
  • 8. Facebookjust surpassed Google in weekly US internet traffic - at a 7.07% share

  • 12. Blogs: Minimum 346 million sites (last count March ’08)</li></ul>Sources: Facebook, ComScore, Compete<br />
  • 13. Social media is changing how consumers interact with brands…<br />It’s in websites, web applications, desktop applications, customer service…it’s literally becoming part of every consumer touch point<br />Google Side Wiki has put every corporate website in the hands of the consumer<br />Mobile has helped social go mainstream, and mobile commerce is knocking - the evolution of geo-applications<br />Social will soon impact in-store shopper experience – in fact, impacts every aspect of the sales experience, and every level of the purchase funnel<br />Real time is not fast enough – social media has made news travel faster than ever, making it critical to monitor and prepare for various scenarios<br />
  • 14. …and changing expectations of how brands respond to and engage consumers<br />Social Media has moved beyond the realm of sales and marketing to impact every department within an organization<br />Customers don’t care what department you are in, they just want to be heard and addressed<br />If left unattended, customer support problems become PR problems, become sales problems, become brand problems…become business problems<br />There is a real need to develop a holistic, integrated strategy across the organization<br />
  • 15. So, what does it all mean?<br />Social media has fundamentally shifted how we communicate, gather information, make decisions, express ourselves and interact—both with others and with brands<br />Social enables consumers to bypass the brand to find information – which may or may not be accurate or positive<br />“Traditional” interactive must evolve to incorporate social tools, customer opinions and comments, etc.<br />Real time is not fast enough—consumers move faster than companies, so brands must anticipate customer needs and actively listen <br />Brands have access to more limited personal information, but the ability to provide greater personalized content<br />Social goes beyond marketing and customer service to include HR, IT, customer service, product development and every other corner of the organization<br />
  • 16. How Everything Fits TogetherThe Consumer As Central Figure<br />As more and more vehicles and channels for communication emerge, it’s easy to lose sight of the common thread at the center of the social web:<br />Social Media is about People<br />Identifying the right places to engage with consumers is as important as identifying the right message.<br />
  • 17. Guiding Fundamental Principle:<br />Social media is not an objective, but rather a tool. <br />It’s not social media for the sake of social media. <br />Rather, it begins with the question of how to most effectively and sustainably engage customers through social media channels.<br />Relevant. Engaging. Meaningful.<br />
  • 18. Media<br />Social Media 101<br />What We Can Learn From Listening<br />
  • 19. Do you know…<br /> …who is talking about you, where they’re talking about you, and what they’re saying?<br /> …if you are recommended or trashed?<br /> …if and how your competitors are talked about and recommended?<br /> …how you’d like consumers to recommend you? And are you helping them to do it?<br /> …People don’t talk in marketing messages or “ad copy”<br /> …who the leading experts are in your space—those who ultimately help shape and drive the recommendations that influence your consumers?<br />
