It’s been a pleasure to talk to marketers and agencies at AdTech San Francisco about how I see brands can best take advantage of social networks such as Twitter and Facebook and I delivered a message I think very different than what most of them do. Most brands see the world in terms of how much exposure (impressions) they are getting or how many followers and fans… It is not about doing another campaign, it is about listening, replying an building long term trust and it is much more difficult, it also takes years and does not come easily.

  • 2. Hi, I am @loic founder of Seesmic, one of the popular social software apps and of LeWeb, largest web conference in Europe
  • 3. What you want as a brand is to be known, trusted and reach millions of people
  • 4. Oh and you had CONTROL, like Constantin films for “Downfall” http://mingramjr.com/hitler-shows-his-frustration-for-the-lost-iph
  • 5. It was easy: few media sources that lots of people watched. Create campaigns, repeat messages, reach masses.
  • 6. It became tough to get your message: millions of sources on various devices: mac, pc, iPhone, iPad, Android, BB, Nokia, Windows Phone, email, paper
  • 7. Mobile is a nightmare with the number of devices but it's soon larger than desktop Internet source Morgan Stanley
  • 8. Is advertising as we know it dead?
  • 9. More and more sites reject or restrain advertising
  • 10. People spend more time on social networks than email source Morgan Stanley
  • 11. Social networking is a global phenomenon and it's not only about Facebook and Twitter source Morgan Stanley
  • 12. Advertising dollars naturally flow to social networks
  • 13. The fastest growing social network is Twitter
  • 14. "promoted tweets that don't resonate will be removed from Twitter" -Dick Costolo Twitter COO
  • 15. EASY: Just Buy Twitter followers (10,000 followers for $447.30) and Facebook fans (10,000 fans for $1167)  #NOT #stupid
  • 16. A brand that no-one cares about won't be able to advertise on Twitter
  • 17. Evan Williams, CEO of Twitter answers @ loic  True, but not sure why that's a problem. It will definitely work best for companies who Twitter works well for generally
  • 18. What is a company for who Twitter works well for? @cremebruleecart 10,000+ followers
  • 19. Best brands on Twitter? Zappos, Best Buy, Ford, Comcast, Kodak, RedBull...  http://whitscott.com/2009/04/29/this-ad-campaign-should-blow-your-mind/
  • 20. Red Bull already uses Twitter promoted Tweets
  • 21. you do not need a website and nice looking ads anymore 1990 - 2000: your site is the center of your online presence 2010 - : Social networks are the center 2000 - 2010: Google is the center 
  • 22. Invest where your brand fans are, not in websites or iPhone apps no-one uses
  • 23. Successful Brands listen to tweets 24hrs a day and answer every single tweet.
  • 24. Gather all the feedback in one central public place and create a public roadmap #yesyourcompetitioncanseeittoo
  • 25. Deliver improvements and features as fast as you can based on the feedback you are getting: work real time
  • 26. use activity streams in your company to familiarize yourself without taking risks: Status.net, Chatter, Yammer, soon Google apps with Buzz
  • 27. Create your presence in all major social networks ... and publish to all of them without pollution (no posting @replies in Facebook #suck)
  • 28. @TheGuild is a fantastic example with a huge community, fans on Facebook, Twitter, millions of views on YouTube and their own social network  http://www.watchtheguild.com/
  • 29. Freakin' REPLY to as many questions as you possibly can and forget about #management #PRdept
  • 30. Dedicated team of community evangelists? #great The whole company like #bestbuy or #kodak #better
  • 31. Forget about millions of followers. 1,000 real fans is enough http://www.kk.org/thetechnium/archives/2008/03/1000_true_fans.php The Internets Users Customers Real Fans
  • 32. Create more trust: use home made video, look ridiculous, do live QandA on ustream or formspring.me
  • 33. Create content which isn't like a press release
  • 34. Work in realtime
  • 35. Support best initiatives and events your fans and influencers go to #plug leweb.net is one!
  • 36. The most important:  It is not a campaign . It takes years to create a community. Be patient and do it very regularly. #forgetwhatyouhavelearned
  • 37. If your brand is not very conversational #noonereallycares get creative like American Apparel gathering 1,364 butts http://whitscott.com/2010/02/17/please-tweet-and-facebook-this-photo-of-my-butt-thanks/
  • 38. How to measure success: exposure, "resonance" and engagement. Number of Real Fans #notnumberoffollowers
