  • At Text 100 we tell our clients’ stories through communications campaigns that support business objectives and lead to measurable outcomes. We measure our campaigns by their ability to influence our clients’ customers and prospects’ decisions. We’re the world’s biggest small agency and we like it that way. We operate as one global family where we’re all on the same side which means we naturally collaborate on your campaigns to share best practice. We want our clients to feel proud when they say Text 100 is their communications consultancy and we know we have to earn that by delivering great work. We also want our people to be proud and excited about being Text 100 Consultants (or Texties as we like to be known). That comes from doing exciting work with great brands and liberating the potential of every Textie across the globe. We hate bureaucracy and encourage an entrepreneurial and flexible way of working. We’re obsessed with flawless execution and measure KPIs against SOWs but we’re happy to swap things in and out as business and media agendas change for maximum ROI. We thrive on innovation and fresh campaign ideas which means our client work integrates creative tactics with the most innovative channels to deliver the best results that influence your customers’ decisions.
  • How many of you remember the time when press releases and media kits were hand delivered and couriered to the offices of publications?
  • How? Social media is extending the discipline’s reach across the business as sales, customer service, product development, etc.
  • Build a credible authentic brand Cultivate connections vs. stories Facilitate conversationsBecome a sharable content publisher Boost SEO (87% of all internet journeys start with a search)Advise on policy
  • Understanding of the audience is paramount. This is where PR excels
  • Sales – know prospects better, be in the right place at the right time (Bristol Meyers Squibb example from social media for sales deck)Customer service – better serving the most vocal customers, reducing customer service costs, let them learn from one anotherCIO community: http://cognizanti.cognizant.com/ (Text 100 client example – can get more information from that team)Product development – harnessing knowledge inside the company, bubbling up the best ideas from anywhere and any level(Best Buy’s Blue Shirt Nation: In much the same way, Best Buy&apos;s Blue Shirt Nation has evolved over the last few years as the company has added new features in response to user requests. The biggest lesson has been the unexpected results from the BSN experiment. Sales associates have provided unique viewpoints and expertise to executives, in-store experiences are changing as a result of the intel shared from employees on the floor, and the feedback loop is stronger than ever before. It didn&apos;t happen overnight, but it was built over time. )Partners and Channel - learn from one anotherHuman resources - empower employees, reach prospective employees
  • Wealth of personal info and user commentary in social mediaWe believe this adds up to – opportunities for building better and more relevant relationships with potential buyers…And, enabling sales to be in the right place at the right time with value the customer needs. Examples of insight that facilitates better relationship building might include: details on what prospects think about from a business/tech perspective, events they’re attending, what they think about Cisco and competitors, and even what they’re working on. There’s the adage about helping and not selling – we believe social media, properly utilized, will be an increasingly important asset to the salesforce to quickly, efficiently engage in targeted dialogue with prospects and not just push features and benefits through traditional channelsTo illustrate…BMS
  • Text 100 gets this. We’ve won accolades for our social media campaigns across the globe. We’ve also won praise from our industry for initiatives such as our global blogger surveys and pioneering work in the virtual world Second Life. But we don’t do it to for fame. We do it because our consultants understand how people make decisions. To this point, we’ve realized you can distil the often complex science of PR planning down to three basic questions:1. What are we selling?;2. Who do we sell it to?; and3. What channels influence these sales decisions?  If the answer to 3. is “social media channels”, then we’ll certainly emphasise blogs, social networks and forums in our PR programs. Similarly, if the answer is “traditional media”, then we’ll ensure that newspapers, magazines and television programs feature. And if the answer is “a round of golf” or “a glass of beer at the pub”, then we’ll be teeing off at noon - or pouring the first pint. And, as is more likely, the answer is “all of the above”, then we’ll tell our clients’ stories across a number of integrated channels.
