The currency of Social MediaMarketing investment- invest in people- give people something totalk about your brand. Technology changes but people don’t. Givepeople a reason to talk about it

Dove launched the ‘Dove Self Esteem Fund’ (DSEF) in 2005.Dove then launched the ‘DSEF Real Beauty Workshops for Girls’
• To amplify these workshops and drive registration, two viral movies were developed – ‘Daughters’ and ‘Evolution’.• In ‘Evolution’, Dove captivatingly shows how distorted our perceptions of beauty are.

The campaign worked so well because it was super-direct, nearly-instantaneous viral marketing that costed next to nothing.It targeted people who were influential in the online sphere: people who would blog about it and share the videos on their own channels and sites. Those people then acted as brand advocates, spreading the gospel of Old Spice to their followers.
No engagement with the members Considered Facebook as a promotional platform only Missed the opportunity of social media which is all about leveraging conversations.Did not stick with its offline Brand Identity – offeringdeep discounts, rather focused its Facebook page ons t y l e , which was not accepted by people
Wal-mart was more strict and tried to moderate the comments and interaction.Wal-mart even had their discussion panel closed which immediately gave a negative vibes to the community. Instead of coming up with a creative way to disarm the critics, they decided to engage in a one-wayconversation and restrict dialogue with the audience.
If they would have come up with a creative way to diffuse thenegativity about their brand, then their Facebook campaign could have been a success.
Viral that Backfired • General Motors had invited the general public to create their own ads for the new Chevy Tahoe. They’ve provided a decent amount of footage of the new SUV and some sound beds and told folks to go crazy.• Thousands of environmentalists and other SUV critics have gone Adbusters and created viral videos criticizing the SUV for contributing to global warming and for injuring and killing those who choose not to drive SUVs.
• Social media is a risky step for bigger brands if they don’t do it properly. You need a right DNA for it.• Brand identity should not modified or adapted simply because of the medium you use. It is vital that your brand is easily identified and that the target audience can relate well with its core values. • Offline and online marketing strategies are concurrent and not contradictory.
• Social media allows friends and users to converse and share information in real time. This means that it is a powerful medium of communication. • A business can expect both positive as well as negative feedback from its customers.• How it chooses to handle this is what separates a successful campaign from an unsuccessful one
• Talking isn’t the only thing that makes social media social. Just like adding Facebook, Twitter and other sharing buttons will not magically transform static content into shareable experiences.• Listening, learning and adapting is where the real value of social media will show its true colors. Listening leads to a more informed business. Engagement unlocks empathy and innovation. But it is action and adaptation that leads to relevance. And, it never ends.
