Social media campaigns are hot. Yet, it isn't about the campaign but about transforming your company into a cocreation environment where customers are part of your organization.

Transcript

  • 1. Things you don’t need to knowbut that might come in handywhen you’re thinking of openingup Pandoras box of social mediafor your company / organization. What the social media books don’t tell you Koen Delvaux @kodel
  • 2. Disclaimer: I should not be here
  • 3. Because it’s not about campaigns
  • 4. A campaign is like a session with a shrink: not a real conversation
  • 5. Sometimes, social media feels like this
  • 6. But when you’re prepared to loose control, it becomes like this
  • 7. Give it time togrow** now is thetime to learnand observe.As yourself, notas a company.
  • 8. Don’t start if you have things to hide
  • 9. Because the truth is out there…And people want to know what you’re up to.
  • 10. Why do youwant to dive into social media?
  • 11. We wanna be social, to do… Promotion (campaign) Support (helpdesk) Recruiting (jobtweets) Wrong. It’s not a tool, it’s a way to achieve business transformation
  • 12. You have to be social to… make customers part of the organization And then support them, let them promote your service or find new employeesBuzzwords to lookup: reverse CRM, customer centricity, prosumer, socialcrm, conversation manager, employee brandbuilding, VRM, crowdsourcing
  • 13. Case : Partyplanners.be
  • 14. “Let’s do this social campaign” 450 followers later…
  • 15. What happened?Twitter users discover the first “winner” isan account of partyplanners themselvesand suspect the iPad will not be awarded.Partyplanners says they made a mistakebut will appoint the correct winner.They take the page with the winner offline.Busted?
  • 16. Result: twitterstormFight, fight, fight!A lot of negative reactionsGoes from defensive to offensive
  • 17. Repair attempt 1: appoint new winner (yes, me!)Mistakes: Not proactively communicating mistake Trying to divert attention Staying impersonal (“we” vs. “I”, name)
  • 18. Repair attempt 2: apologize and explain (on my advice)Mistakes (corrected later): Accusing whilst apologizing Pointing fingers to an individual Very bad spelling & grammar
  • 19. Repair attempt 3: give up on social media (note: private message to me)Mistakes: Tweets deleted in a cover-up attempt Not commenting on hostile blog posts Withdrawing without explanation
  • 20. End result: disasterconvicted without a trial… (or: didn’t show up in court)
  • 21. Learnings from partyplanners1. Get good advice2. Treat people with respect: honest & open3. Behave like you’re at a cocktail party (taking the stage is for the in crowd only)Never start with a campaign. If you have tocampaign, do something relevant.
  • 22. Let’s put practice into theory
  • 23. 3 steps to a social organization 1. Set up your infrastructure 2. Interact with people 3. Campaign
  • 24. 1. Set up your infrastructure* Purpose Tools Monitoring Policy *a lot of social media advisors to choose fromChoose the media appropriate for you
  • 25. 2. Interact* Inside & outside Open organization Real life stories Employee branding *BrandShake sells a program for thisPeople do not want to talk about yourbrand. They want to talk with you.
  • 26. 3. Campaign* (there, I said it) Amplify message Connect audience Make it sustainable Remain yourself *a lot of agencies to choose fromDo it for your fans, not for strangers
  • 27. So, there isno magicalformula.It’s justhard work.
