In his BlogWell Atlanta case study presentation, "Succeeding in Social Media Initiatives," Orange Business Services' Head of Internet & Digital Media, Yann Gourvennec, explained how they're finding success in social media as a business-to-business brand.

Yann's case study covered how they're finding passionate buyers online that advertising can't reach, how they're using video, and how they've used social media feedback to improve their products.

  • Why talk about Social Media today? Just because it ’ s fashionable? for the sake of jumping on the bandwaggon? no way! not just a toy for hipsters but a “ tool ” (philosophy? maybe more appropriate) for serious marketers and by social media we mean social media at large, not just social networks (hence my correcting the title of the conference, it ’ s not just about social networks. Social networks are only a part of the big picture … see next slide) http://www.permissiontv.com/pdf/ptv_survey_results.pdf Participants • Over 400 senior-level decision makers in a variety of industries
  • ROI is almost always the question that is cropping up first. But is it the right question to ask? I don ’ t mean that there is no ROI, but that the way of measuring it is way different from usual ROI measurement My point in this presentation will be to demonstrate that what we have done in the past 2 years and will continue to develop in the coming months is not meant to
  • Solution Selling is at the heart of all we do on the Web and especially what we do regarding Social Media This is behind our content creation, content-sharing and b2b label initiative.
  • the real question is not ROI, the real question is … clients as usual
  • but you can ’ t do that on your own, you ’ ll need help
  • 60+ active bloggers [Fr + En] 100,000+ visitors 1,000+ comments 200+ trackbacks 200 clips over 10 months new guidelines 50% in English + French videos copied on other sites videos used on client intranets
  • our best example of UGC so far has been generated by a consultant of ours who gave us a phone call one day asking about legal advice. (1/7th of total views overall in 10 months) this video was produced by him using his personal computer and generated more than 5,000 views which in b2b is really good. it was then used by some of our clients – including people from the ministry of defence and education – as training for their people. producing such a video would cost in the regions of € 10,000-15,000 each and it wouldn ’ t even be practical as vendors don ’ t necessarily have the knowledge associated with that kind of demonstrations.

  • So you were talking about ROI? ROI is no longer mentioned at Orange Business Services for Social Media at least. It may change in the future but chances are that it won ’ t. This isn ’ t the real problem.
