This presentation explores key aspects of the web 2.0 and social media. Using a Cisco case study this presentation reveals how Cisco created an interactive web experience using web 2.0 and built a community using social media outlets including Facebook, Second Life, blogs and discussion forums ultimately spreading its marketing message for the introduction of a new router. This was presented at a SVAMA Emerging Media Morning Forum on March 26, 2008.

Update: I made some changes to the deck on July 1, 2008 based on some feedback from Jeremiah Owyang including a valuable slide on lessons learned near the end of the deck.

  • Hi LaSandra, thanks for sharing the slides. Your campaign was very well orchestrated. I recently launched a similar campaign at my company. The program initially focused on inbound communications for endorsement and acceptance. I am mostly interested in how you spread collateral and images in widget format. Also, what kind of coverage did the campaign receive?

  • Great presentation.Kudos to you LaSandra on your ability to win the approval in such a large company, which I know is so difficult, having worked in one, especially when you have a totally new approach to doing things.
