  • There is a big shift in the way we think about personas on the web. Facebook has 300 million users and has recently dropped the initial focus on geographical location as foundation for your personal network.The story “from zero to hero” can become reality now based on a certain achievement or accomplishment. People become internet celebrities (e.gScoble, EsmeeDenters) or highly reputed in their community (e.g. clouderati, twitterati, followers on Twitter)However the big difference with before is that people can have very distinct personas depending on the situation. You can be a blonde babe in second life, in real life have a boring office job and lead a clan in world of warcraft or have hundred thousands of followers on Twitter. They key here is that there is a shift from focusing on the person to focus on the online persona(s).  your facebook or hyves profile is probably different than your linkedin profile. How do you put such a person in a box to target? The information you harvest from his participation in forums, might be actually irelevant to target him when he’s on facebook.

  • Dunbar's number is a theoretical cognitive limit to the number of people with whom one can maintain stable social relationships. These are relationships in which an individual knows who each person is, and how each person relates to every other person.[1] Proponents assert that numbers larger than this generally require more restricted rules, laws, and enforced norms to maintain a stable, cohesive group. No precise value has been proposed for Dunbar's number, but a commonly cited approximation is 150.

  • These guys at Animoto did it using Amazon Web Services.
  • A couple of nights ago one of our customers—Animoto—saw a monster spike in traffic. Animoto has a product that helps you create web videos with music and graphics. They launched a Facebook app that lets people tell their friends when they’ve uploaded a video that includes that friend. You can see the spike in traffic that this new app caused. The X axis represents time elapsed and the Y axis represents the EC2 instances launched. Because they were using AWS, Animoto didn’t have to do a thing—AWS took care of everything.
  • So having this hugely distributed Internet where you users are scattered over multiple services and website. How do you look at the concept of identity? It’s a LOT to ask a user to create YET ANOTHER account on your site. However, if the user is willing to do so, it means that he/she is assuming that they will get something out of it. You have a couple of standards that are emerging for online identity management: OpenID, oAuth, etc. However, the real gems are in the social graph: i.e. access to your friends, to your photos, to your profile information, etc. You see many sites now using identity providers from e.g. Facebook as the authentication mechanism and store extra information locally on the server.Other examples:Watchmen movie, BlueRay version: connect via FB Connect with your friends and watch together and chatGirlsGuideTo: the only way to connect is FB Connect. Actually some kind of social network that leverages another social network

  • By giving away 100 Ford Fiestas to influential bloggers, 37% of Generation Y were aware of the Ford Fiesta before its launch in the United States.  Is it any wonder why 25% of Ford’s marketing spend has been shifted to digital/social media initiatives?  Ford is the only US auto company that didn’t take a government loan.
  • Case-mate "Recession Case" drives record sales. Andrew Knight, VP of e-commerce, readily admits he was skeptical when a 22 year old on the marketing staff brought him the idea of selling a cardboard case for the iPhone (see image, above). Appropriately dubbed the recession case, this would retail for 99 cents."My initial thought was that this was never going to work. I was thinking we might sell a couple hundred but most of them we would just have to give away. What I underestimated was the power of social media!" said Knight. What happened is that Knight had met blogger Larry Greenberg through Twitter and Greenberg posted an article about the Recession Case. The next day, almost every major tech news site picked up on the recession case: Gizmodo, Engadget, TechCrunch, CNET, Mashable, etc."We broke our daily site traffic record by five-times and we set an all time revenue record in the same day! Our Facebook & Twitter traffic skyrocketed as the story spread virally and people shared it with friends and family. In four days we had sold over 7,000 recession cases! It was truly unbelievable how fast it took off," said Knight.Case-mate also offered free personalized "Sharpie Script" on the recession case. This sparked a mini-phenomenon of its own, as people were buying cases for each other to simply send a personalized message (aka being social).Knight points out another added bonus of the social propagation, "Our search rankings have improved nicely. Our two most important terms are 'iPhone case' and 'iPhone cases.' We are currently #1 for both of them on Google!"
  • BlendTec increased its sales 5x by running the often humorous "Will it Blend" Videos on YouTube, blending everything from an iPhone to a sneaker.

Social Media – Down the Rabbit Hole Social Media – Down the Rabbit Hole Presentation Transcript

  • Social Media – Down the Rabbit Hole
    Rick Mans - Social Media Evangelist
  • The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way, and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself before she found herself falling down a very deep well.
    Either the well was very deep, or she fell very slowly, for she had plenty of time as she went down to look about her and to wonder what was going to happen next. First, she tried to look down and make out what she was coming to, but it was too dark to see anything; then she looked at the sides of the well, and noticed that they were filled with cupboards and book-shelves; here and there she saw maps and pictures hung upon pegs.

  • Average 18% revenue growth during the crisis
  • Background
    In 2006 and 2007, mainstream media caught on to Web 2.0, driven in large part by major acquisitions in the space — News Corporation bought MySpace.com for $580 million in 2005, and Google bought YouTube for $1.65 billion in Google stock in late 2006. There are now almost daily articles in publications like The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and BusinessWeek touting the virtues of, marking the stumbling blocks for, and explaining how businesses and consumers alike should approach Web 2.0. Time Magazine even went so far as to declare “You” the Time “Person of the Year” for 2006 as a result of Web 2.0- enabled communities and collaborators.
    Background
    Hype
    In 2005, the term Web 2.0 took off, giving a name to a nascent product category and a marketing lift to fledgling vendors. Dense or imprecise definitions of the phenomenon also gave rise to opportunistic startups looking to ride the wave of giddy exuberance. In all, Google now turns up more than 18 million hits for “Web 2.0;” the O’Reilly- and CMP-hosted Web 2.0 Summit and Web 2.0 Expo are among the most popular tech conferences today; and, in 2007, the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, held a series of panels on the impact of Web 2.0.
    Business Adoption
    Businesses have by no means sat on the sidelines these past four years. Large enterprises such as McDonald’s, Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance, Wells Fargo, and General Motors have all made heavy use of Web 2.0 technologies for customer and prospect outreach, as well as internal worker productivity and collaboration. The rest of the market is quickly catching up — 56% of North American and European enterprises consider Web 2.0 to be a priority in 2008, and adoption of major Web 2.0 technologies is expected to grow at a healthy clip as a result.

    • Cheap hardware and software reach the masses.
    • Simple devices that anyone can operate.
    SOCIAL CHANGE
    • Consumers look for cost and time efficient technologies, ways to make their voices heard.

    Generation Virtual is used to describe a growing online culture in which people participate, often anonymously, through personas in a flat, virtual environment. Generation Virtual is not defined by age, gender, social demographics or geographic location. It is based on demonstrated accomplishments (merit) and an increasing preference for the use of digital media channels to discover information, build knowledge and share insights.

    • The value of music has dramatically fallen. I used to pay nearly $20 for a CD with about 10 songs or about $2 per song. Now I use Spotify and pay just €4.99 per month for all music I want to stream to my ears
    • Movies and TV shows cost less to watch. I used to pay Comcast about $60 per month for basic cable service. I ditched the service more than a year ago and watch TV programs through a variety of Internet based services such as Hulu.
    • Newspaper and magazines are available online for free. I used to subscribe to daily newspapers and many magazines. I don’t anymore yet I get nearly the same access to those products for nearly free - just the cost of my ISP.
    • Telephone communications are dramatically less expensive today thanks to services such as Skype and other VOIP based products.

    But the long tail is a decidedly mixed blessing for creators. Individual artists, producers, inventors and makers are overlooked in the equation. The long tail does not raise the sales of creators much, but it does add massive competition and endless downward pressure on prices. Unless artists become a large aggregator of other artist's works, the long tail offers no path out of the quiet doldrums of minuscule sales.
    One solution is to find 1,000 True Fans. While some artists have discovered this path without calling it that, I think it is worth trying to formalize. The gist of 1,000 True Fans can be stated simply:
    A creator, such as an artist, musician, photographer, craftsperson, performer, animator, designer, videomaker, or author - in other words, anyone producing works of art - needs to acquire only 1,000 True Fans to make a living.

  • If you don’t understand the web and strategic application as a marketer, PR professional or member of the media, it shows you don’t care.  There’s no way around this, if you truly cared about your profession and craft you’d embrace what’s new and ultimately better as opposed to rallying against it or outright ignoring the market.  The web isn’t new or novel, and if you think it is you’ve been too stuck in your ways to see the most clear trend of the last century.  Analog has no future in a connected society.
    If You Don’t Embrace The Web, It Shows You Don’t Care
  • People trust people
    Teens don't hate advertising, but they rely more on friends. More than twice as many teens as adults — 38% versus 17% — say advertising helps them decide what to buy. That may sound encouraging, but marketers must also take into account that, at the same time, nearly twice as many teens as adults (47% versus 25%) rely on recommendations from friends and family. They are also far more likely to spread the word about products they like (67% versus 39) Blending advertising with social marketing is absolutely critical for marketers targeting this segment.

  • Despite advertising being the mainstay of social networking, newer revenue models are beginning to appear
    Advertising Spend and Paid1 Revenue, Social Networking Sites ($ Mn), US, 2008-2013
    • Virtual goods appear to be the most promising model of social network monetization:
    • The market for virtual goods in the US is estimated to double to over $2 bn in 2010
    • The virtual goods space is already witnessing significant activity:
    • EA purchased Playfish, a social gaming developer for $275 Mn in Nov 2009
    • Zynga, makers of popular games such as Farmville, raised over $180 Mn on an estimated revenue base of over $300 Mn
    • Internet advertising is showing signs of decline, forcing developers to push for paid approaches:
    • Social gaming firm Crowdstar abandoned in-game ads in favor of virtual goods

  • Social media as killer feature forMotrin
    The ad
    What happened
    Wearing your baby seems to be in fashion. I mean, in theory it’s a great idea. There’s the front baby carrier, sling, schwing, wrap, pouch. And who knows what else they’ve come up with. Wear your baby on your side, your front, go hands free. Supposedly, it’s a real bonding experience. They say that babies carried close to the body tend to cry less than others. But what about me? Do moms that wear their babies cry more than those who don’t. I sure do! These things put a ton of strain on your back, your neck, your shoulders. Did I mention your back? I mean, I’ll put up with the pain because it’s a good kind of pain; it’s for my kid. Plus, it totally makes me look like an official mom. And so if I look tired and crazy, people will understand why.
    It all began with an online ad posted Saturday (15 november 2008) on the company’s website. It was about “baby wearing” — i.e. carrying a child in a sling or a wrap, rather than pushing them in a stroller or carrying them in your arms. For some parents it is something they do simply because it works. For others it goes far deeper than that — part of a philosophy of being close to the baby whenever possible.
    Developments
    By Saturday evening they were the most tweeted subject on Twitter. By Sunday there was a nine minute video on YouTube, to the tune of Danny Boy, showing screen shots of the outraged twitter posts interspersed with photos of Moms carrying babies in slings.
    Bloggers began calling for boycotts. Bloggers asked their readers to alert the mainstream press.
    By Sunday afternoon a few bloggers and tweeters had gotten the ad agency that created the ad on the phone, to find they didn’t know a lot about Twitter and didn’t seem to have a clue that there was so much anger piling up online

  • HowdidMotrinrespond
    Developments
    By Sunday evening the ad was taken offline by McNeil Consumer Healthcare, the maker of Motrin.
    The response
    I am the Vice President of Marketing for McNeil Consumer Healthcare. I have responsibility for the Motrin Brand, and am responding to concerns about recent advertising on our website. I am, myself, a mom of 3 daughters.
    We certainly did not mean to offend moms through our advertising. Instead, we had intended to demonstrate genuine sympathy and appreciation for all that parents do for their babies. We believe deeply that moms know best and we sincerely apologize for disappointing you. Please know that we take your feedback seriously and will take swift action with regard to this ad. We are in process of removing it from our website. It will take longer, unfortunately, for it to be removed from magazine print as it is currently on newstands and in distribution.

    Fake fan blog: http://www.alliwantforxmasisapsp.com/blog/
    A poorly disguised marketing effort—the URL was registered to Zipatoni (PR firm). 
    After discovery Sony responds:
    “Charlie” keeps posting his denials, in pseudo hip-hop speak. More than once he writes, “yo where all u hatas com from... juzcuz you aintfeelin the flow of PSP dun mean its sum mad faek website or summ... youall be trippin.” 
     “Busted. Nailed. Snagged. As many of you have figured out (maybe our speech was a little too funky fresh???), Peter isn’t a real hip-hop maven and this site was actually developed by Sony. Guess we were trying to be just a little too clever. From this point forward, we will just stick to making cool products, and use this site to give you nothing but the facts on the PSP. Sony Computer Entertainment America.” 
  • Ketchum and FedEx
    This particular Twitter posting came back to bite the agency person from Ketchum
    (New York office) who made some unflattering remarks about Memphis this morning before he presented on digital media to the worldwide communications group at FedEx (150+) people. Not only did an employee find it, they were totally offended by it and responded to the agency person. The kicker is that they copied the FedEx Coporate Vice President, Vice President, Directors and all management of FedEx’s communication department AND the chain of command at Ketchum. Mr. Andrews, the Ketchum presenter, did not take into account that many FedExers are native Memphians and are fiercely defensive of their city and their company.

    Technology
    Impact
    • Name: Rich internet application, realized with Macromedia Flash /
    Shockwave, integrated into the Mini website www.mini.com
    • Offering customers to design the roof of their Mini themselves enabled
    BMW to underline the brand image of individualism and uniqueness for
    the Mini brand
    • Mini sales have gone up towards the end of 2007, which hints towards
    good market reception of the current marketing strategy, including the
    website
    • The customer input generated (some designs are exhibited in an online
    gallery after being selected by BMW, but all designs submitted could
    be saved) could be used to screen for market trends
    • Impact on the value chain: Marketing & sales, specifically branding
    Implementation
    Strategic Fit
    • The roof customization application went online in June 2007
    • Actual printing of the roof foil is only available in Italy as of December 2007 for 400 EUR, roll-out in Germany and the rest of Europe is planned
    • In the US , the “Mini custom paintjob” application is available.
    It additionally allows for design of the whole body of the car, but is
    declared to only be for entertainment use, the designs cannot be
    bought and actually put on a car
    • The extended customization through an online application thrives to
    make the online experience for Mini customers as interesting and
    different from other brands as possible
    • By keeping the roof customization option linked to Mini and not
    offering it to other brands of the BMW group, brand differentiation is
    deepened

  • Lego Factory Involving Customers in the Design Process
    SOLUTION
    • Lego launched the Lego Factory (http://factory.lego.com) – an online model of engagement for potential and existing Lego users, which allows users to design, share and buy their own customized LEGO models
    THE LEGO FACTORY WEBSITE
    BACKGROUND
    • Lego had traditionally been surrounded by a highly active constellation of Lego User Groups - fan communities comprising of both adult and young members
    • These groups maintained large online presence; operated independently of the company; exchanged and showed creative toy designs and models amongst themselves
    • Lego needed to move out of closed proprietary mode and adapt a participative strategy for customer interaction, which would utilize existing user creativity in product design
    BENEFITS
    • Designer users can then order the bricks needed to make their model, and also customize their own box for the model
    • Other users on the site can buy uploaded designs in the gallery, and will receive both the bricks for the model as well as the building instructions
    • Through the Lego Factory, the company has taken a step further in the evolution of user involvement, building strong brand relationship
    • The initiative has created high levels of awareness and interest with the consumers
    • The initiative has put Lego a step ahead of competition by moving out of closed proprietary content mode and involving fresh ideas from consumers and community for New Product Development
    • Users interested in custom-designing their own Lego models have to download and install the ‘Lego Digital Designer’ –
    • In the designer, the user can drag and drop to create a virtual toy design
    • Once the user has created a design, he can upload the same to the online gallery
    • Lego approves all designs before they are added to the online gallery, to filter out models for appropriateness for all age groups

    • Facilitate more effective
    collaboration
    • Reduce email
  • A large international postal group piloted wikis and social networking over its Corporate Intranet to enhance internal collaboration and improve productivity
    A Capgemini Case
    SOLUTION
    • The new portal will be based on the following set paradigms:
    • Single vendor strategy
    • Open industry standards
    • Modular architecture
    • The portal is expected to have advance features such as:
    • RSS Feeds : integration of any content in any context
    • Personalized news : subscription, alerts: Filter information flows according to business needs
    • WorkSpace (sharing): share documents and knowledge
    • Forum: to discuss topics globally, or locally (based on restricted groups or as part of your Intranet-Portal / article)
    • Wiki: to enable editing and modification of articles with reduced workflow
    • Networking / About Me / My Profile: To enable find colleagues with common profiles, projects and interests
    • To ease access, the Corporate Intranet will be using Single Sign-On mechanism
    BACKGROUND
    • The company corporate intranet serves as an important information platform connecting thousands of employees globally
    • The Company initiated a corporate intranet improvement project with the aim to:
    • Personalize the intranet:
    • Provide customized information based on a user’s affiliation to a business unit
    • Provide options to personalise users’ information environment to better suit their needs
    • Provide faster and easier access to the intranet
    • Increase usage of the intranet
    BENEFITS
    • Easier access to the intranet with more effective search capabilities has resulted in improved productivity and reduced time
    • Greater sharing/reuse of intellectual capital and increasing collaboration will enable better and faster business results
    • Using standardized approach has resulted in reduced operation, maintenance and development cost
  • Project Lifecycle Management has proven to be a critical success factor for the 787 Dreamliner development
    Technology
    Impact
    • Name: Dassault Product Lifecycle Management suite
    • TechnoVision Technology Cluster: Process on the Fly
    • The Dassault PLM suite consists of a number of software packages:
    Catia (3D CAD design), Delmia (Manufacturing simulation), Enovia
    (Product Data Management)‏
    • Boeing expects PLM to reduce development costs by up to 20%
    • With the 787, Boeing is able for the first time to outsource over 70% of
    the aircraft’s components while still retaining control over the process
    - dozens of suppliers could be integrated from the beginning of the
    design phase
    • The time schedule for the 787 development will be met almost on time in
    2009
    • The PLM system prevented costly mistakes early on and allowedfor necessary adaptions
    • Impact on the value chain lies within technology developmentand operations
    Implementation
    Strategic Fit
    • 2002: Decision to work with the Dessault PLM suite is made.
    6,000 workstations get upgraded to the same software, incurring 120m USD
    cost
    • 2004: Dreamliner program is approved, development and
    manufacturing planning go into the next phase
    • 2006: “Virtual Takeoff” of the 787 – design and manufacturing
    planning phase is complete
    • Implementation of Dassault’s PLM system enables the secure execution
    of Boeing’s outsourcing strategy, as all processes are linked on a stable
    platform and errors in design, manufacturing planning and processes can
    be spotted early on
    • The PLM execution gave Boeing a significant time advantage over
    Airbus, who experienced huge drawbacks from software incompatibilities
    that led to wrong development of subsystems
  • What Else Can Businesses Do? Use Social Media to Speed Up Time to Market
    • Through ‘crowdsourcing’, Threadless and Look Zippy are facilitating higher interaction levels amongst consumers in designing T-shirts
    • Proctor & Gamble now generates 35% procent of new product features through crowdsourcing

  • P&G’s connect + develop Program facilitated Greater Innovation
    SOLUTION
    • P&G launched the ‘Connect + Develop’ initiative, tapping into a global innovation network comprising of a host of sources, right from independent innovators to virtual innovator networks such as InnoCentive
    • Having a clear sense of consumers' needs, the company identifies promising ideas throughout this network and applies its own R&D, manufacturing, marketing, and purchasing capabilities to them to enhance the rate of innovation
    BACKGROUND
    • As P&G grew to a $70 billion enterprise, the global innovation model it devised in the 1980s was yielding shrinking success rates
    • Their R&D productivity had leveled off, and innovation success rate had stagnated at about 35%, whereas innovation costs were climbing faster than top-line
    • While P&G owned a 7500+ strong R&D team, it realized that viable product innovation was increasingly being done externally at small and midsize entrepreneurial companies
    P&G CONNECT + DEVELOP
    P&G converts them into ‘science problems and sends into the network
    P&G identifies top 10 customer needs
    P&G’s Global Innovation Network
    BENEFITS
    • More than 35% of P&G’s new products have elements that originated from outside P&G, up from about 15% in 2000
    • R&D productivity increased by nearly 60%
    • R&D investment as a percentage of sales is down from 4.8% in 2000 to 3.4% in 2006
    • P&G’s average two-month cycle of generating physical prototypes and testing them with consumers has reduced to around 24 to 48 hours
    P&G’s 7500+ R&D team work on solutions suggested and with internal communities

  • So she sat on, with closed eyes, and half believed herself in Wonderland, though she knew she had but to open them again, and all would change to dull reality--the grass would be only rustling in the wind, and the pool rippling to the waving of the reeds--the rattling teacups would change to tinkling sheep-bells, and the Queen's shrill cries to the voice of the shepherd boy--and the sneeze of the baby, the shriek of the Gryphon, and all thy other queer noises, would change (she knew) to the confused clamour of the busy farm-yard--while the lowing of the cattle in the distance would take the place of the Mock Turtle's heavy sobs.
    Lastly, she pictured to herself how this same little sister of hers would, in the after-time, be herself a grown woman; and how she would keep, through all her riper years, the simple and loving heart of her childhood: and how she would gather about her other little children, and make their eyes bright and eager with many a strange tale, perhaps even with the dream of Wonderland of long ago: and how she would feel with all their simple sorrows, and find a pleasure in all their simple joys, remembering her own child-life, and the happy summer days.

  • Alice laughed. “There's no use trying,” she said “one can't believe impossible things.”
    “I daresay you haven't had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
