We set out to answer these questions and ended up writing “Our Playbook for Digital Crisis Management 3.0.” Born out of our global experience preparing for and responding to brand and corporate crises, it’s now part of our global training program.

We wanted to understand how social media was fundamentally changing the way we approach crisis management. We wanted to marry established crisis practices with the most evolved thinking in social media marketing and social business practices. We also wanted to be highly practical – today’s experts need a suite of apps they can quickly access when a crisis threatens to break.

  • 3Crisis Response Has ChangedSocial media has changed how information is spread and how people formopinions. It has changed how brands communicate with stakeholders, and howthose stakeholders communicate with each other. Social media has alsochanged how brands manage their reputations – every day, but especiallyduring times of crisis.Because of these factors, social media has fundamentally changed crisismanagement.In order to effectively help a brand through a crisis – or, more importantly,prevent a crisis – today’s marketers, communicators and public relationspractitioners must also be experts in the social space.Social@Ogilvy has developed a detailed Playbook designed to articulate a newapproach to crisis: one that marries established crisis practices with the mostevolved thinking in social media marketing and social business practices. It’salso designed to be highly practical – providing checklists, templates and othertools that can be quickly downloaded, should a crisis hit.This document offers a preview of that “how-to,” born from our global experiencepreparing for and responding to brand and corporate crises.Social media crises aresteadily on the rise – upfrom 1 in 2001 to 10 in2011 – but, even worse,76% of them werepreventable, had theorganizations invested inproper training.–Altimeter, Social BusinessReadiness, August 2011 Purpose of this Playbook
  • 4A New ApproachWhy do we need a new approach?There is a growing risk for brands and corporations. While crises haveoccurred since humans started making mistakes, the growth of social medianow makes these mistakes visible to mass audiences in real time.Social media has given groups and individuals an even playing field. It haselevated the “vocal minority,” powered the consumer watchdog, and givenhuge impact to “hacktivists” and socialized groups like Greenpeaceand PETA.It has revolutionized the news cycle. The citizen journalist now feedstraditional media, and vice versa. A local story quickly becomes a globalstory on the Internet. Meanwhile, search engines favor the fresh and viral,and consumers turn there first for information on an emerging issue.Social media has evolved the art of storytelling and the use of contentonline. Stories are core to human belief, and social media gives brands newways to demonstrate their values and earn belief. Emotional and visualstorytelling techniques matter more, but detractors skillfully wield thesesame techniques.Understanding these trends and knowing how to employ techniques aroundstakeholder engagement, community management and content activationgive today’s experts a new, complete framework to understand and plan fora crisis in the social media age.
