The noble art of building brands worth sharing for Lessius Interactive Marketing.

Acts not ads. I guess trying to change marketeers to do less advertising and more acts from time to time means you have to preach to new marketeers. Well, preaching might not be the right word but nudging or gently convincing to be more about acts pretty much sums it up.

Gently convincing to create stuff worth sharing. To be maniacal in managing expectations. To create acts, not ads. To not only contact consumers when they have to pay an invoice, but to gradually engage them via campaigns AND programs. And that to do this, you have to change companies from the inside. Not by brute force, but by smart projects.

So, here’s to the new class of marketeers at Lessius Mechelen that is prepared to build brands worth sharing and talking about.

  2. 2. Yep. I know I look like 18. But I’m actually 29. Most old people tell me I will be happy with them when I’m 50. I doubt that. I sooooo love Blackberry ... ... but recently switched to iPhone (it’s not you, it’s me).Polle de Maagt. The reason to move to Gent The love of my life. What better Changing companies to be reason is there?! more about acts, less about ads.
  3. 3. I try to change companies to be less about ads and more about acts.Through inspiration, strategy and coaching.
  4. 4. I work(ed) for companies like
  5. 5. And I write about it.Mostly to sharpen my own mind, sometimes to make myself completely ridiculous. www.polledemaagt.com @polledemaagt
  6. 6. This presentation is 100% Apple, eBay and Zappos-free. And I will only talk about stuff I either experienced or worked on myself. I hope that’s practical enough for you guys ;)
  7. 7. I would like to talk about 3 things today. (Don’t worry, I made them tweet-size, so you can share and/or remember them).
  8. 8. “Marketing is way too important to leave it up to the marketing department. Steven van Belleghem. “ “ Create acts, not ads. Leo Burnett. “ “ Create stuff worth sharing. Tom de Bruyne. “
  9. 9. “Social media is way too important to leave it up to the marketing department. Polle de Maagt. “ “Create acts, not ads. Leo Burnett. “ “Create stuff worth sharing. Tom de Bruyne. “

  11. 11. 1“Create acts, not ads. Leo Burnett. “
  12. 12. A competition worth participating. Wouldn’t it be awesome to see Denmark’s brightest football star Nicklas Bendtner’s score the winning goal in your shoes? The campaign invited youngsters to design a pretty remarkable pair and activate their friends to help them win. Nicklas BendtnerNew Mercurial Vapor boot What a guy.Not the same round every day, but a route worth running. Results? Over 500 designed pairs and 60.000 activated youngsters.
  13. 13. Running other routes Not the same round every day, but a route worth running. Running further To run a decent figure, people needed to run further than they were used to.Nike changed the way people run. A club worth joining Connected 24/7/365. Results? Over 40.000 connected runners, behavior change amongst runners. SpinAwards and Webby Award.
  14. 14. The growing challenge of managing expectations.It’s pretty basic: do more than people expect to stimulate word of mouth. However, be careful not toover-exceed expectations, that actually creates negative conversations.And it sets a new normal ...
  15. 15. Go to market with your customers. Telenet launched Yelo, an innovative product that let consumers watch TV live on any device. One problem: the product wasn’t finished. The solution? Involve the consumers via facebook, twitter and a closed community to make the product even better. A beta product A product that could be improved on every level: from service, to interface and from content to functions. Involved customers Results?Customers were involved via Over 15.000 ideas.twitter, facebook, blog and a A neutralized discussion.closed research community.
  16. 16. *Ok, ok, this is not my own case.
  17. 17. So, where was the chapteron tweets and wallposts inour brand book again?How can you be both coherent incustomer service, invoices, tweets andwallposts?
  18. 18. Polle de Maagt @polledemaagt Coherent brands: Dogma is for dogs. Usually, brands are defined in vision documents. Or even worse, tag clouds. But with so many new touchpoints between brands and consumers, we need an identity that both works in a tweet and an invoice. An identity that is coherent, media-neutral and that inspires rather than restricts. Inspiring copy Copy that sets the tone, restricts, inspires and shows company character. Visual feelEyecandy support for the ... and seriously copy and company feel. If a dog food company can do it, you can do it.
  19. 19. 2“Marketing is way too important to leave it up to the marketing department. Steven van Belleghem. “
  20. 20. A small experiment in happiness. “Do something with Foursquare”, that was the briefing for a pretty remarkable experiment. Over the course of 6 weeks, we surprised KLM passengers based on their social media profiles. To see how happiness spreads. And it did. Something to prove KLM wanted to prove they recognize the person behind every passenger. More? I will talk you through that later :) FoursquareEvery time a passenger told KLM via twitter or Foursquare that he/she was at Schiphol airport,we tried to surprise him/her in a most personal way. Results? Over 1.000.000 impressions on twitter alone. And a Cannes Lions Award for PR.

INTRINSIC LEARNING CHANGE MANAGEMENT Learning KPIs Change management KPIs What can we learn from these How will this project help change the projects?
