MAKING SOCIAL DATA WORK OUTSIDE OF PR/MARKETING• Concept of building a dashboard to listen for conversations outside of PR/marketing applications is easy • Discover the data • Analyze the data • Segment • Develop insights • Execute based on those insights• In practice, much more difficult to execute at large companies• Requires central source for listening with organizationhttp://www.kenburbary.com/2009/10/introducing-the-social-analytics-lifecycle/ @chuckhemann ON TWITTER
DEVELOP A TOOLS, TRAINING AND SCOPE CHECKLIST • Has there been an internal decision made on a tool? • Do you have a training protocol in place? • What business units will be participating? • How will you respond to positive and negative comments? • Have you outlined a reporting approach?http://www.flickr.com/photos/40491122@N03/3738306829/ @chuckhemann ON TWITTER
PICKING AN ENTERPRISE LISTENING TOOL THERE ARE OVER 225 VENDORS ON THE SOCIAL MEDIA MONITORING WIKI ALONE!!! Criteria you should be using to determine the right tool for your organization: • How many sites the tool capture overall • Workflow management • Ability to import and export information from the tool • Incorporating other data sources (web, search) • Cost NOTE: Don’t try to review every tool. Pick FIVE based on cursory research to review in greater detailhttp://wiki.kenburbary.com/ @chuckhemann ON TWITTER
PUTTING TOGETHER AN EFFECTIVE TRAINING PROGRAM • Take advantage of training programs offered by the vendor you’ve selected to do listening • Start with a core team of people within the company • PR/Marketing • Legal • Social media/digital marketing • CRM • Human Resources • Consumer insights • Spread training program to other parts of the organization gradually as interest in listening is expressed • Hands-on training as much as possible • Create incentives/requirements to complete training programshttp://www.flickr.com/photos/72416315@N03/6538084999/ @chuckhemann ON TWITTER
DETERMINING HOW BUSINESS UNITS PARTICIPATE • Unlike Dilbert in this cartoon, it takes more than just a meaningless meeting. • Most listening efforts are currently being funded by PR/marketing/digital marketing/social media • Getting other business units to participate requires: • Time • Money • People • Clear goals for listening • How insights will be used • How does listening support the business • Gradual scaling ALWAYS winshttp://www.flickr.com/photos/i-marco/2296026782/ @chuckhemann ON TWITTER
PART 1 IS CREATING YOUR STRATEGIC RESPONSE UNIT • Cross functional group made up of the following departments: • Impacted department • PR/marketing • Community manager/digital marketing • Analytics • Legal • All team members are conversant in known issues and response matrix • In the case of the SRU, smaller is most definitely better • Feeds data into central source for listeninghttp://www.flickr.com/photos/inventorchris2/6015253491/sizes/l/in/photostream/ @chuckhemann ON TWITTER
PART 2 OF RESPONDING TO COMMENTS IS DEVELOPING AMATRIX @chuckhemann ON TWITTER
FRAMING A LISTENING REPORT BASED ON THE FIVE W’S • What are people saying about your brand • Where people are talking about your brand • When people are talking about your brand • Who is talking about your brand • Why people are talking about your brandhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/lwr/6208710/ @chuckhemann ON TWITTER
PUTTING A BOW ON YOUR LISTENING APPROACH • Pick 5-10 tools to evaluate based on broad enterprise needs • Develop a training protocol that includes core team with plans to expand • Determine which business units will participate based on time, money and resources • Create your response matrix and identify your SRU • Frame up your listening program – regardless of BU – based on the 5W’shttp://www.flickr.com/photos/alychz/333505522/ @chuckhemann ON TWITTER
