  • What is a Social Business? From antisocial to social: A primer. @thebrandbuilder www.smroi.net Olivier A. Blanchard
  • I get social media but I don’t really get social business. What is it exactly?
  • First, let’s talk about what social business isn’t.
  • Having a social media presence isn’t social business.
  • Your digital content doesn’t make you a social business.
  • Chasing followers doesn’t make you a social business.
  • Core Principles of Social Business
  • 1. “Social” is and has always been a core business philosophy. It is not an add-on. It is not a “let’s hire a blogger” thing. It is not something that lives on Facebook. It is not a fad. It must be at the heart of the company’s very purpose and identity.
  • 2. “Social” must be a mindset before it can become an operational model.
  • 3. A CEO who doesn’t care about creating a social company will not accidentally create one.
  • 4. “Social” is something you  are , not something you  do .
  • Warning: Acting social without being social is doomed to fail.
  • Lesson: Transforming a business into a social business is not an exercise in social media adoption. It is an exercise in change management .
  • Social media “experts” are not enough to help you build a social business. Hire change management experts as well.
  • The 6 stages of social business evolution
    • No presence in social channels.
    • Basic presence in social channels.
    • Some activity in social channels.
    • Visible investment in social activity.
      • - Example: Old Spice, Coca Cola, CNN.
    • Integrated social communications.
      • - Example: Ford, IBM, Best Buy, CDC
    • Social business.
      • - Example: Zappos, Sporting KC, Starbucks

  • Your COO will become an expert in real-time collaboration.
  • Your CEO will set expectations for the entire organization.
  • Clarify timelines, objectives and targets across the organization.
  • Don’t worry about selling. Just be human, interested and helpful.
