  32. 32. Not coordinated
  33. 33. e.g. Sun</li></ul>13<br />
  34. 34. CENTRALIZED<br /><ul><li>One department controls all efforts

  36. 36. May not be as authentic
  37. 37. e.g. Ford, Regulated</li></ul>14<br />
  38. 38. HUB AND SPOKE<br /><ul><li>One hub sets rules and procedures
  39. 39. Business units undertake own efforts
  40. 40. Spreads widely around the org
  41. 41. Takes time
  42. 42. e.g. Red Cross</li></ul>15<br />
  43. 43. MULTIPLE HUB AND SPOKE <br />OR “DANEDELION”<br /><ul><li>Similar to Coordinated but across multiple brands and units
  44. 44. e.g. HP, Microsoft, Tech Giants</li></ul>16<br />
  45. 45. HOLISTIC OR “HONEYCOMB”<br /><ul><li>Each employee is empowered

  51. 51. Maturity drives Total Budget, Team Size, and Org Model<br />Source: Survey of Corporate Social Strategists, Altimeter Group, November 2010<br />Corporations who have formalized their programs have a cross-functional team that lead and serve many business units with a larger budget line–they may not deploy on their behalf.<br />
  52. 52. Maturity drives Total Budget, Team Size, and Org Model<br />Source: Survey of Corporate Social Strategists, Altimeter Group, November 2010<br />Mature and Advanced corporations have only slightly large budgets but involve many more across the company and are formed in Hub and Spoke, and often “Dandelion.” <br />

  59. 59. 2010-2011: Spending on Social Business programs<br />We asked 140 Corporate Social Strategists their annual budgets for the following 12 social business programs:<br />$278,000<br />$160,000 $129,000 $120,000 $108,000 $98,000 $90,000 $47,000 $47,000 $37,000 $23,000 $22,000 <br />2011<br />2010<br />Source: Survey of Corporate Social Strategists, Altimeter Group, November 2010<br />

  61. 61. 2011 top spending by Maturity<br />Source: Survey of Corporate Social Strategists, Altimeter Group, November 2010<br />A small compartment of staff will be hired, scalable branded communities, and reliance on agencies which could help with monitoring.<br />
  62. 62. 2011 top spending by Maturity<br />Source: Survey of Corporate Social Strategists, Altimeter Group, November 2010<br />Teams will continue to grow, but likely stymied by true “engagement.” Brands may throw ad dollars and campaigns in order to scale –expect few to have maturity to truly engage. <br />
  63. 63. 2011 top spending by Maturity<br />Source: Survey of Corporate Social Strategists, Altimeter Group, November 2010<br />Expect the advanced to customize social media software and data, and then focus on engagement with social media agencies of record (SMAOR) –with less focus on advertising than the mature.<br />

  68. 68. <ul><li>Gurus, Ninjas, and Samurai need not apply

  74. 74. 3) Invest in advertising that leverages social graph<br />Advertising is the second highest social business program spend in 2010-2011 ($104,000 and $160,000)<br />48% of corporations plan to increase their spend in 2011<br />Focus on clear metrics<br />Make ads engaging and tie to social graph –not just banners<br />40<br />Twitter’s advertising is a combination of both earned and paid –that results in WOM<br />
  75. 75. Invest in Advocacy programs – they scale<br />Research indicates a 5 step process<br />Example: Microsoft has @4000 MVPs who are nominated by peers, employees and other MVPs; MVPs write books, articles, participate in user groups, host events, and answer community questions<br />4) Build an unpaid army of advocates –get your customers to do the work for you<br />41<br />
  76. 76. SCRM connects the social web to your customer data bases, in 2010 to 1011 –budgets are small $19K to $37K (SCRM) but growing<br />Most corporations don’t know they are implementing SCRM, as brand monitoring integrated with CRM applies<br />Invest in Social Media Management Systems (SMMS) to help your brands scale.<br />Forecast: $14K to $22K (SMMS) in 2011 spending<br />Vendor short list: CoTweet, HootSuite, Sprinklr, Objective Marketer, Expion, SpredFast, or Seesmic<br />5) Invest in scalable systems like SCRM and SMMS<br />42<br />

  82. 82. The ROI Pyramid: Metrics Examples (there are more)<br />A junior mistake is providing Engagement Data to executives –instead focus on business metrics. <br />
