  • I believe that most companies aren’t failing because of a bad product or service, but that most people don’t see the value yet of what they do, most people don’t know they exist. We used to solve that issue by blasting our product information everywhere, in the hope people would buy products. Today 90% of people Tivo every tv-show. People trust more what other people say than what they hear in ads.
  • Attracting people is tough for the spider. But if they finally have a system in place that works, it works for them. They are not the first person to start but if they are there, they stick to it.
  • You’ll love these people
  • Be positive, be personal, it's all about your personality People do business with people they like, and the same counts online.
  • That depends on if they are a name brand or not.
  • Attracting people is tough for the spider. But if they finally have a system in place that works, it works for them. They are not the first person to start but if they are there, they stick to it.
  • Think of SecondLife, great hit, it’s gonna be the next up. But when the masses didn’t show up like expected, the large corporate companies had already spent 100s of thousands of dollars buying their virtual islands and building their headquarters to give virtual services. Building your hub is important, but make sure you build it in the right place.
  • Companies really have to show their effort in listening to the customer. Are they really making an effort? Are just they pushing their content? If we, as an audience get the slightest idea that they are. Our trust in them is gone.
  • Listen to where the conversations take place. Using Google’s Keyword Selector to find the keywords connected to our customers product.
  • Use how sociable to type in your product type or name and see where conversations take place.Also Seesmic and Hootsuite.
  • See what the kind of conversations are that they are having. Are they asking questions about how it works? Are they sharing how they like your product? Are they sharing how they are using your product? Are they recommending it? It’s important to know this, so you can feed that conversation. If they ask how-to questions, you can share answers that your company has, or create a platform where people are sharing. If they share their sentiment on your product. Let them know you heard them and thank them for feedback.
  • As part of your strategy you need to define where you are going to build your hub.
  • This is an example FBML Lead generation page for a customer that we have created. We are generating leads for him. If you look on the top left you can click back to the wall, which is the most common used page of a Facebook Fan Page.
  • There is more out there then justFacebook, and your consumer is there too! Discover YouTube, Discover Twitter. And when your company needs to move on, move on.
