  • A common response by marketers to the complexity of interactive marketing is the tendency to run campaigns in isolation from one another, defining relationships by the channel rather than the customer.¨ Organizations must proactively invest in integrating multichannel analytics, content management, and campaign execution to sidestep the inevitable long-term impact of siloed approaches on the customer experience and marketing ROI.
  • Field of Dreams Example.What is SEO? SEO is the active practice of optimizing a web site by improving internal and external aspects in order to increase the traffic the site receives from search engines.

  • Social media – any on-line site where you can engage in a a two-way dialogue with your customer. Think of it as a “companion” not just a “channel”.
  • Take a few minutes and go look at some major Fortune 500 brands and what they are using Facebook for… some of my favorites? Audi, TripAdvisor, Coca – Cola.Look at every engagement as an opportunity to build trust. The act of LIKING of a brand on Facebook doesn’t serve as an open invitation for marketing messages. Instead, it should be viewed as a simultaneous display of endorsement and personal expression.To capitalize on Facebook’s viral potential,make sure you’re giving your FANS something worth talking about! The more they talk about your brand, the more your messages will reach new—and potentially profitable—audiences.
  • focus on using social media to enhance customer engagementTraditional CRM strategy focus on customermanagement solutions for channels such as corporate Web sites, call centers, and brick and mortar locations. the relationship has shifted to the customer, who has the power to influence others in his or her social network.Remember our talk about promotions and sweeps? the search for tangible value – coupons, discounts, etc. – is what triggers most consumers to seek out a company via social media.
  • These numbers are powerful indicators of the vigor with which businesses are embracing social media as a primary customer communication channel.
  • We are going to talk about Facebook ads today, but if you are b to b – or looking to connect with say, meeting planners – linkedin ads are awesome.
  • ␣␣ Through the Facebook Ads interface, create Facebook Ads that incent users to become Facebook FansDeliver special offers, content and promotionsthat require a conversion on your brand website or microsite! (optimize the landing page)Require the fan to login to access the special promotion using their social identityReceive and store their social profile data based on that login Mine that profile data in order to expand your FB Ads targeting and segmentation and determine your most valuable customer types. (as your social data set grows, you can find new customer niches to target.
