  10. 10. Innovation at IDG Marketing in a Social World Among consumers, marketers, analysts and media companies, few topics generate more interest than social networks. Accord- ing to IDG Research (@2009 IDG Research), more than half of IT decision makers maintain Facebook and LinkedIn accounts, while approximately one-third use Twitter. Social media offers a revolutionary platform for traditional mar- 67% of IT buyers visit business- and/ keting strategies that encourage real-time, one-to-one conversa- or technology-based tions with your target audiences. This new approach features a communities at least dialogue with your clients and prospects fueled by content and once per month. - IDC, 2010 interactivity that users find relevant and engaging as they move through the buying process from consideration to purchase. As is the case with most traditional marketing campaigns, up- front planning increases chances for success in a social program. IDG can analyze the trends and themes of products and IT issues in the social Web and devise a program to help marketers join or initiate conversations important to their prospects. Case Study: IBM infoboom IBM selected IDG’s brands and social media capabilities to grow its business with midsize companies. IBM customers and prospects asked IBM for access to IT experts and their peers. In response, IBM and IDG created the online commu- nity infoboom (www.theinfoboom.com ) for IT executives at midsize companies who confront different issues and have information needs unlike those at larger firms. At infoboom, issues such as business intelligence, virtualization and cloud computing are discussed in content and conversations as they apply to midsize organizations. With social media being a major component of the info- boom site, users are invited to comment and interact with their peers. While IBM does not exercise editorial control over the content, IBM experts contribute opinion pieces and are available to respond to questions by visitors. IT execu- tives at midsize companies, many of them members of CIO’s Executive Council, a members-only group of senior-level technology leaders in business and government, provide thought-provoking commentary.
