  • Market Knowledge: Competitors, Suppliers, Buyers, Influencers; Google insight, Google Alerts will provide a view on most companies within an industry. Also, there are a range of blogs and networks where amateurs and professionals will share their knowledge of a market. Customer Insight and Understanding: Listening to customers and prospects through the range of channels they inhabit; comments on YouTube, Networks where they ‘hang out’ Customer Interaction: the tools exist to not only listen and observe but also to discuss and converse Business Intelligence: media monitoring, alerts and related analysis tools provide a great source of structured Business Intelligence. You need not pay £600/month for the privilege, SocialMention and Google Alerts can keep you informed where you need to be. Reputation Management: one of the key aspects of web 2.0 is that it is Real Time. You can see and respond to comments as they arise and often, where the response is efficient and effective, create a positive effect. Consider, the Ethiopian Growers that challenged the coffee used by Starbucks in a video posted on YouTube. This video was viewed by 10,000 people. The CEO posted a response within 24 hours on YouTube, the response was viewed by several million.
  • We believe there is a strong correlation between positive word of mouth, online buzz and sales and marketing. Needless to say there are now numerous means of getting your message out there, growing followers (through sites like Twitter, and energising your customer base). Web 2.0 is immediate and direct. The example I like to use is of a safety harness company based in Edinburgh who considered using a traditional approach to International Sales and Marketing – find an agent, find prospects, etc. An alternative approach we suggested, used LinkedIn to find the Health And Safety Director of the largest Construction Project in the world. Now it is not a leap to suggest filming the harness on YouTube and sending an email with a link saying you are in Saudi Arabia and would he like to meet up. Numerous examples of customer insight and feedback leading to product improvement. Many car companies use Second Life to test their designs. A site called eBags sends out the latest designs to their top raters on the site. Internal cost savings. No 10 Downing Street example… Improved Operations and internal processes. There are applications for literally anything – wikis that compete with licenced intranets, email freeware that is better than Outlook, hosted network sites for £20/month that would cost £thousands to replicate. Increased Return on Investment. The holy grail or the achiles heal of Web 2.0. How do you make money from this thing…there is a growing level of evidence to suggest that it works.

      • Quality of your network
      • Relationship strength
      • Ability to leverage
    • The 6Is Approach
  • 40. Performance Measurement
      • Involvement – network/community numbers/quality, time spent, frequency, geography
      • Interaction – actions they take – read, post, comment, reviews, recommendations
      • Intimacy – affection or aversion to the brand ; community sentiments, opinions expressed etc

    • Come gather 'round people
    • Wherever you roam
    • And don’t criticise
    • What you can't understand
    • Your sons and your daughters
    • Are beyond your command
    • Your old road is
    • Rapidly agin‘
    • Then you better start swimmin’
    • Or you'll sink like a stone
    • For the times they are a-changin’
  • 43.
    • A note on
    • Inbound Marketing

  • 47. What’s wrong with this approach?
  • 48. Drowning in an Sea of Noise
  • 49. Our Response
  • 50. The Customer Manifesto
    • We are not sales suspects,
    • prospects or leads. We do not
    • want to be converted
    • We are no longer an ‘audience’
    • We are people. In fact,
    • ‘ We Are The People’
    • We are your customers and
    • we are King! Social media
    • empowers us. We control the
    • Information Age.
    • Welcome to our world, not yours !
  • 51. The Customer Manifesto
    • Don’t treat us like passive sheep
    • waiting to be driven to your web site or blog
    • Use social media to deliver exceptional
    • Customer Experiences
    • That way, we will become brand
    • advocates and ‘spread the word’ for you
    • Our network will listen more to us than you
  • 52. We are the Children of the Revolution
  • 53.
    • Social Media in Action

    • This 5-star hotel and residence offers European hospitality with an unmistakable French touch. The hotel consists of 318 beautifully appointed guest rooms/suites, while the residence offers 112 fully furnished and equipped deluxe Studios and 1-3 bedroom apartments.
    • The ultimate in comfort, we offer 318 luxuriously elegant rooms and suites.
    • Take a trip. Escape. Go and visit somewhere new and see if we are there… Give in to that irresistible wanderlust. Discovering and staying in the most exceptional hotels in the world has become the modern-day Graal, a game, a quest…

    • The Customer Experience
    • of the Brand
    • Tripadvisor
  • 62. From Tripadvisor
    • It's getting old, the rooms are unappealing and it will never be more than a business hotel
    • Being a Sofitel hotel we expected something quite 'flashy' unfortunately we were let down. The rooms, although comfortable and clean, were not of the standard we expected and were definately not what we expected after looking at the photos on the hotel's website.
    • Booking my stay via the Sofitel website after a pleasant experience at several other Sofitel locations over the past 2 years with my new job I was looking forward to a 5 star luxury stay after a stressful business trip. My expectations were reasonable, however certainly not met by this hotel

  • 90. Progress?
    • Good progress in channels being
    • used and number of ‘followers’/
    • ‘ fans’
    • But are they using it in the right
    • way?
    • Fan engagement or broadcasting?

  • 96.
    • Is fan engagement enough?
    • What about fan ownership?
  • 97. Fan Ownership?
  • 98. Crowd Power
    • The ‘crowdsourcing’ movement - could this help to break down barriers to fan ownership of clubs?
    • ‘ Crowdfunding’ is the collective cooperation, attention and trust by people who network and pool their money and other resources together, usually via the Internet, to support a ‘common cause’. Why can’t football clubs be funded this way through an online community membership scheme?
    • ‘ Crowdsourcing’ could also provide a solution for decentralised, democratic fan control
  • 99. Crowd Power
    • Rather than a decision-making structure where total power lies with a small wealthy elite, in a crowdsourcing model power would lie with the community (or crowd)
    • Mass collaboration, rather than leading to anarchy, will often result in better decision-making building on the collective intelligence of the crowd
    • Why does control have to be in the hands of a small number of oligarchs when the collective intelligence of the masses will always be greater than that of the few?

    • To ensure that your Social Media activities deliver high ROI, it is important to monitor, measure and evaluate your social media performance on an on-going basis. Key questions to address:
    • What social media performance measures and KPIs should be used – both in terms of the overall ‘buzz’ created and measures for individual channels?
    • What tools/software will be used to assist performance measurement?
    • What reports will be produced, for who and how frequently?
  • 177. Performance Measurement
    • Should be undertaken at three main levels:
    • Individual social media channels
    • Overall ‘buzz’
    • Business Impact
    • Using the 6Is approach
  • 178. Organization, Resource and People Issues
    • Organization, resource and people issues sit at the bottom of your SM Balanced Scorecard NOT because they are the least important issues to address. In fact, the exact opposite is true. The success of your social media strategy is very much dependent upon appropriate decisions being made in the areas listed below:
  • 179. Organization, Resource and People Issues
    • Do we have the right organisational ‘culture’ and ‘mindset’ for Social Media? ‘Be social before doing social!’ Is the right organisational and decision-making structure in place?
    • Has agreement been reached on resource allocation?
    • Who will be responsible for your social media activities?
    • Do you have agreed Social Media Policies and Guidelines in place covering ‘Proper Use’, ‘Content Management’, ‘Customer Response Times/Quality’ and ‘Legal’ aspects?
