  • Explain that technology has changed the way we communicate, and since marketing follows communication channels, technology has changed and will continue to change marketing.
  • Explain that the Internet is the latest communication technology leap, and it is also evolving.
  • Discuss the relative recent popularity and growth of social media, explaining that the future is now, for social.
  • Basically, social media is used for the same things businesses have always been after. It’s just the latest way to do it.
  • Can mention the eMarketing study that you showed me that shows that these three goals combine to represent 72% of social media objectives, specifically.
  • So up to now we’ve described the goals. Now we should talk about what to do to achieve those goals. First, a little more about where these tactics will take place. This slide describes the platforms, where the social stuff happens (at least as far as it relates to business tactics)
  • This slide outlines the 4 tactics. As I explained in the email, it might be good to just use this slide to define the strategies in a very basic way, and very briefly mention that each tactic has its own strategies, waiting until the business case section to really explain how they work. In the draft I sent, this slide had more detail. I’ve stripped it down a bit to basically the definitions you see above, leaving the details for the business case section.
  • This slide takes those 4 tactics and applies them to the previous mentioned business objectives.
  • The previous slide mentioned SEO as a benefit of social media, and you can use this slide to explain that social media helps not only businesses, but helps SEO which also helps business.
