Web 2.0 Mike Moran

  1. 1. !quot;#$%!&'() Marketing 2.0: How the Web Changes the Old Marketing Rules Mike Moran February, 2008 ***+,quot;#$,&'()+-&, © 2008 Mike Moran
  2. 2. !quot;#$%!&'() The good old days in marketing It’s the real thin ! The best creative folks came up with a g great message for a mass market Ca n’t it! Rea Beat ! We tested it against focus groups k e is lT hin the Co g ! We pushed it out there—over and over again ! We hoped they’d buy, but weren’t sure they did I'd like to buy the world a Coke adds life Coke 2 © 2008 Mike Moran
  3. 3. !quot;#$%!&'() The good new days in Web marketing ! You can target even the smallest group ! You can measure the results of everything you do ! You must change your message in response to what your customers: ! Say (comments, blogs, product ratings) ! Do (search, purchases, page views) 3 © 2008 Mike Moran
  4. 4. !quot;#$%!&'() The times they are a-changin’ ! TV, radio, and print are all lagging the Web, especially with younger consumers ! Moreover, the media shift is also a change from passive reception to interaction UK Web usage overtakes TV viewing Japan Has 59% 164 Web minutes per day vs. of All Mobile 148 TV minutes Web Users Source: Google survey March 2006 Source: Univeristy of Japan survey 2005 4 © 2008 Mike Moran
  5. 5. !quot;#$%!&'() The Web rewards pull over push ! You don’t target markets with a message the same way on the Web ! More often, markets have to find you, or your customer must give you permission: ! Search ! Opt-in e-mail ! Subscribe to blogs ! But even tiny markets can be reached 5 © 2008 Mike Moran
  6. 6. !quot;#$%!&'() Isn’t Web Marketing simple? ! It’s dizzying ! And it keeps changing ! Faster and faster ! How do you cope? 6 © 2008 Mike Moran
  7. 7. !quot;#$%!&'() Remember, it’s still marketing 1. You need to target your market 2. Understand what they care about 3. And connect with your message If you do: ! You improve your image ! And you drive sales 7 © 2008 Mike Moran
  8. 8. !quot;#$%!&'() The difference is how you do it ! Time was that marketing was risky ! Your job was to remove as much of the risk as possible ! But Web marketing rewards experiments rather than deep planning ! Are you feeling stuck? 8 © 2008 Mike Moran
  9. 9. !quot;#$%!&'() Attract 9 © 2008 Mike Moran
  10. 10. !quot;#$%!&'() Both organic and paid search offer opportunities ! With paid, you bid what you’ll pay for each click ! Organic is the search engine’s best match Paid Search Organic Search 10 © 2008 Mike Moran
  11. 11. !quot;#$%!&'() Social media marketing is new wine in old bottles ! Growing out of search marketing, and public relations before that ! Social media marketing is any way you can get attention for your message using people connected to the Internet People + message + Internet = social media marketing 11 © 2008 Mike Moran
  12. 12. !quot;#$%!&'() Content-based social media marketing Content sites ! Focuses on the content to be posted and passed around: blogs, videos, photos, news stories, podcasts ! Or bookmarks to the content Bookmarking sites ! Feeds viral marketing 12 © 2008 Mike Moran
  13. 13. !quot;#$%!&'() Personality-based social media marketing ! Consumer companies create character profiles, but may not be the best marketing for IT companies ! IT consultants create professional profiles 13 © 2008 Mike Moran
  14. 14. !quot;#$%!&'() Interest-based social media marketing ! Communities form around topics of interest, such as message boards and specialty search engines ! IT marketers must get into these conversations ! Maybe social bookmarking sites fit into this category, too 14 © 2008 Mike Moran
  15. 15. !quot;#$%!&'() Fantasy-based social media marketing ! Virtual worlds, inhabited by avatars, allow fantasy lives that marketers wish to be part of—Apple, IBM, and other companies already play ! Kids have their worlds, too, but IT marketers can safely ignore them 15 © 2008 Mike Moran
  16. 16. !quot;#$%!&'() Social media marketing can be planned ! Choose interesting topics for your stories—just like good old public relations ! Use good titles and descriptions—just like <title> search marketing ! Make it easy to bookmark, unless you think that’s cheesy 16 © 2008 Mike Moran
  17. 17. !quot;#$%!&'() Except when it can’t be planned Sometimes you just need to react to your good fortune 17 © 2008 Mike Moran
  18. 18. !quot;#$%!&'() Remember that social media uses a community ! Get to know the community ! Give back to the community ! Let the community spread your word ! You can’t force it It Takes a Village 18 © 2008 Mike Moran
  19. 19. !quot;#$%!&'() Listen 19 © 2008 Mike Moran
  20. 20. !quot;#$%!&'() Web 2.0 now makes marketing a conversation ! Readers comment on your blogs ! They change your wikis ! The create blogs of their own ! They create “hate” sites if they don’t like you ! They produce mashups of your content and functions Web 1.0 users were consumers Web 2.0 users are participants 20 © 2008 Mike Moran
  21. 21. !quot;#$%!&'() Putting customers in control ! Manufacturers are beginning to allow customers to rate their products and provide written reviews—right on the manufacturer’s site ! Customers are going to look for reviews before buying anyway ! Why not keep those customers on your site? 21 © 2008 Mike Moran
  22. 22. !quot;#$%!&'() Marketers must give up message control ! We don’t control the message ! The message is changed, rebutted, and misconstrued by our audience ! We must modify what we say in response ! And, the message crosses country borders 22 © 2008 Mike Moran
  23. 23. !quot;#$%!&'() The Three Rs of Marketing 2.0 ! Real No more of the old marketing hype. Tell the truth. Admit your mistakes. ! Relevant You can’t interrupt people anymore. You must have what they want. ! Responsive Marketing is no longer a monologue. You must answer your customers. 23 © 2008 Mike Moran
  24. 24. !quot;#$%!&'() What if you’re not real? Customers ignore you. ! Hype-laden prose is a holdover from print—it doesn’t persuade Web customers ! Some companies have been caught creating flogs: ! Wal-Mart ! Sony 24 © 2008 Mike Moran
  25. 25. !quot;#$%!&'() What if you’re not relevant? Google ignores you. Search marketing yields the lowest cost per lead (and the most qualified leads) So that’s where the money is going (and this chart shows only paid search fees) 25 © 2008 Mike Moran
  26. 26. !quot;#$%!&'() And if you’re unresponsive? Customers flame you. ! Accept comments and trackbacks on your blogs ! Allow your products to be rated and reviewed ! Staff your efforts with enough people to respond 26 © 2008 Mike Moran

It’s no longer just a problem for the public relations and media contacts 40 © 2008 Mike Moran
