Marketing - be it advertising or PR - has been focused on controlling brand messages. Days of controlling messages are OVER.
social business isn't marketing. Can be used as a marketing tool, but not exclusively a marketing activity.
social business a business optimisation tool.
quality assurance and business process reengineering can still affect business costs, but biggest cost benefits are from social business - knowledge aggregation, vertical integration, value chain improvement
changing consumer behaviour and expectations - more informed customers, powerful consumer voice in social media channels
rise of the trust economy, decline in plastic PR.
social business a key component in generating and maintaining trust
social business conversations: based on stories and advice
story-telling and story creation
stories don't end - more like songlines - they evolve and augment with each shared experience - of telling or comparative experience.
the role of influencers - facilitating learning
learning is not just among other consumers but also internal to the business - deploying social tactics for business improvement
influencers can be story tellers or they can act as a focus for story telling - the agony aunt of a community.
CRM shouldn't exist. Buying isn't the basis of a relationship. Buying is transactional. Buyers think of organisations as a source for goods/services they need. They are remarkably pragmatic and phlegmatic about their connection to brands. The value of stories is that they form the basis of relationships.
stories are not created by organisations. they are created by participants in a conversation.
the role of technology - facilitating telling and amplifying stories.
rise of mobile and its effect on stories
the changing shape of storytelling - blogs (long, complete publishing) versus mobile (short, short-lived, evolving)
why mobile actually facilitates more participants in conversations
why mobile is improving - not challenging - the opportunities for transformation to a social business
The death of the consumer. The rise of people and communities.
Community advocacy from stories
Why a social business isn't an option
why mobile is key to social business
