  • Start with a definition. People think about SM in lots of ways, here’s our definition at Barkley.
  • Where do these conversations happen? All over the place. The array of social media platforms is bewildering. From social networks to blog platforms to video conversation platforms.
  • At Barkley, we define the social media ecosystem in three categories:
  • Korean BBQ trucks in LA 48,000 followers on Twitter Mostly tweet their locations Involve their fans in contests, e.g. recent crowd-sourced T-Shirt design contest Lines around the block
  • Canadian home builder. Uses blog, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube to communicate a different experience (Not the horror stories). Sell direct to consumer. 16 houses in 1007. 40 in 2008. “ I spend a lot of time online, but it’s really paying off.”
  • Small UK organic farming and composting company Podcast. Cinema. Blog. Expanded from serving small community of 100 people to a global audience. Thousands of listeners to their podcast – over 50 5 star ratings on iTunes Dell 2008 Global Small Business Excellence Award
  • We’ve been trained as marketers to think of people as their “demographics” -- their age, HH income, etc. But in the social media space, people are less defined by their demographics and more defined by their activities and attitude: This figure is from Groundswell and it defines the different behaviors people exhibit in social media.
  • Determine frequency, who’s responsible, reporting format.
  • Small, modern art gallery in Toronto. Decided to create blog to let people know about No magic bullet – people like to get info in several different ways. Uses traditional methods – signage, postcards, mailing list PLUS Email newsletter, blog, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn. “ Try to reach people the way they want to be reached.”
  • And of course, as you would expect, Zappos uses Twitter (and social media in general) as a forum for customer service. They have a dedicated Twitter account to handle service issues. Uncover service opportunities Initiate response Amplify praise, reinforce service reputation And it works.
  • Dell IdeaStorm – 10,000 ideas, 200 implemented, sales results? Implemented in 6 wks, btw. Launched in 2007 August of 2008, Dell launched 9 new laptops “designed” by ideastorm community
  • Be careful how you choose to measure. In many cases, true ROI is going to be impossible to gauge.
