What is the Social Frontier?
You are on the Social Frontier. Imagine your organizational market planning needs as you enter a new market, maybe a new global territory. You typically do some research and acquire some intelligence before you actually arrive in market. Your initial effort is a small one with an initial or temporary feel. For our purposes, we have utilized a collection of camping metaphors to update the expedition concept into something that is familiar, as we have to pair it with much that is new or unfamiliar digital territory that is still to many marketing professionals and executives.
We have defined the phases (Tent, Camper, Cabin) that we work through with our clients from concept to their “in market launch” timeline. While there are no absolutes, each of these phases, depending on the organization takes about 6 months to a year to “build” on their defined market “frontier”.

    • SXSW 2013 A New Landscape This is my favorite event of the year, SXSWi… a true digital/ interactive marketer includes the “i” at the end. This year there is a marked change in the digital consumer behavior of the live attendees and the unique digital content and online conversation that is being created to share the session learnings and related SXSW experiences. The trends we are seeing are a focus on all things API to streamline your digital presence delivery, a prioritization of engagement and the user experience, and on the technologies that consumers are using to facilitate their lives and connect with your brand. Since you can’t know everything as it is all moving so rapidly, there is an increased importance in understanding your target consumers and their technical, digital and social behaviors. And while today we may isolate those into individual categories, we will not be doing that for much longer as they continue to converge. So while it may seem like the landscape is becoming more complicated, your digital marketing strategy and goals remain straightforward. That is, to create a unique proposition for your target consumer and engage with them in person and on line with relevant and engaging content to accomplish your business and marketing objectives. What you will find enclosed is a snapshot of some of the digital marketing models and tools we use with our corporate clients. While these are simplified, anWe created a Digital Content Creator Guide for this year’s experienced marketer will see the synergies with what theirSXSWi event to support the creation of Unique Digital Content current expertise provides and a new way to organize your(UDC). In 2013, we believe Content Creation should be at the thoughts and planning around the digital and socialforefront of your Digital Strategy. marketing of your product or brand. Enjoy!

    • Interactive Compass | StrategY The Beginning… If this is your first time considering your Digital Presence as being on the Social Frontier… Welcome, we look forward to exploring with you! Being on the Social Frontier is a way of thinking of the build of your digital presence in phases, of helping your brand truly “think digitally”. In our world we call these phases Tent, Camper and Cabin to align with a “building on a piece of land” metaphor. We find this works as it easily aligns with how professional marketers need to think about building their comprehensive digital presence today, in a phased, collaborative, iterative approach. Phasing your digital and emerging social strategy in this way allows you to take one bite of the elephant at a time and to stay within your budget. It is a marathon, not a sprint.4 Copyright ©2013 Social Wendy Group LLC, All Rights Reserved.
    • Interactive Compass | TECHNOLOGY The Right Stuff… You want to be “digital” but what is that really going to take? More specifically, what technologies (plural) do you need to get a handle on? In 2013 what APIs and Platforms have to be aggregated and managed. Are you already familiar with them or do you need a primer on how they work, how they interface with one another, and if they are corporately approved platforms. These are just the beginning of the questions we will ask as you delve into this section of the compass. If you start with defining your Digital Consumer is, and defining their Technology Persona, you will likely be more successful in your long term planning… which is the key to this piece of the puzzle. A wrong move here is an expensive one. Both the wrong path and corrected path are expensive and lengthier adventures.5 Copyright ©2013 Social Wendy Group LLC, All Rights Reserved.
    • Interactive Compass | OPERATIONS Behind the Scenes… Business value, along with marketing/ advertising performance, are core requirements for most corporate digital initiatives. There are also the requirements of documentation and measurement which vary somewhat, but are universal to defining the business value of your digital initiative. As you can see in this compass slice, we have a full-range focus on the back of the house starting with your business goals and defining what the collaborative team to accomplish those goals looks like. Finally, we tailor to a real-life plan by ensuring that our staged approach matches the business’ budget. We know that scaling your objectives with the right strategy, team and financial plan are key to its success this year and in the future. Digital and Social Marketing disciplines are not going away so the integration of them in a planful way sets the right stage for an ongoing sustainable operation.6 Copyright ©2013 Social Wendy Group LLC, All Rights Reserved.
    • Interactive Compass | ENGAGEMENT The End Game… This is really why we are here isn’t it? To get today’s Digital Consumer to engage with our Unique Digital Content (UDC), to become loyal consumers of our brands and to share that loyalty with everyone they are willing to. To increase conversion of goals. Our job as marketers is to ensure that we have created the right venues, channels, platforms and experiences that are specific to their digital persona. When we get that right, growth happens. Have you made the opportunity to understand and explore the communities that are important to your digital personas? Do you know what channels they truly engage on versus just view? Are you reviewing this quarterly to ensure you have the most recent view of their evolving digital consumer behaviors?
