  3. 3. Again? What is Social Media Prepared by: Tim Ho
  4. 4. 4 Again? What is Social Media Forget about everything people have said about social media. Social media is just basic communication, like what you do everyday. Executives (and probably most “social media experts”) often focus too much on the channels. Facebook, Twitter, forums, blogs, podcasts, pictures, and videos are just channels, a bride to communicate with targets. Think about these channels as languages, they can be mastered easily but content and value of the conversation is all it matters. As Seth Godin said on his blog, “It's a process, not an event.” In business, companies shouldn’t invest in social media for quick results, it’s a process to build relationship with potential clients, and maintain good relationship with existing customers.

  6. 6. 6 Again? What is Social Media Common Mistake: Tactics before Strategy Most brands (and many agencies) focus way too much on social media tactics, such as launching Facebook pages, Twitter, creating apps, and trying to create viral videos (Gray section on previous slide). Some might get lucky and create buzz, but it’s very risky to be too focused on tactics. Tactics should come last after building a solid foundation of brand image, personality, and engagement online.

  11. 11. 11 So… Why Social Media? Why invest in social media if it’s just a “process” while there are other media like TV ads, magazine ads and online ads that shows quicker impact? There are tons of reason for it, but the biggest reason would be, can you afford not to? As I mentioned from last chapter, social media is just the same as basic communication. In business, social media shouldn’t play the role in direct selling, it should instead influence viral conversations, build brand awareness, improve customer service and engage with your target as a “friend”. When making purchase decisions, would you trust a friend, or an advertisement? Prepared by: Tim Ho

  15. 15. 15 So… Why Social Media? Listen Directly instead of Asking Social media gives you the ability to “spy” (legally and ethically) on potential and existing customers to learn what they think about a product/ service. Isn’t it way much powerful than handing out surveys in a mall? Traditional Marketing Research Directly learn it from your target’s conversatio Prepared by: Tim Ho

  20. 20. 20 Lastly… No’s in Social Media Don’t do an OK job Don’t be on social media just because it’s there, if it’s part of the marketing plan, make sure there are enough resources and labour to impress your targets. For instance, if there’s a blog, make sure it’s well planned and updated often. Prepared by: Tim Ho

  22. 22. 22 Lastly… No’s in Social Media Don’t rely on “Social Media Gurus” Do not judge someone’s knowledge in social media strategy based on the number of his/her followers and fans. They might be good targets who can help you spread the words and become ambassadors, but that would happen at the tactic stage. Social Media Gurus are more like channels or publications, they don’t necessarily have the capability to create a real strategy. Social media is not just about numbers. Prepared by: Tim Ho
  23. 23. 23 Lastly… No’s in Social Media Pay-per-post is not a long-term solution, don’t pay bloggers! Here’s the reason why: http://tim-ho.com/2009/12/pay_blogger_pay_prostitutes/ Prepared by: Tim Ho
  24. 24. 24 Lastly… No’s in Social Media Don’t lie, don’t pretend Be transparent! In social media, companies can no longer over-promise/ be fake. Lies can get caught and get spread hundred times faster online. A brand can give a better image to the public by being transparent and show them who they really are.

  25. 25. 25 Lastly… No’s in Social Media Don’t be afraid to over-share Share everything, on different channels! Everything that might interest your targets, such as pictures of the office, live tweets during an event, videos, articles and live streaming. It’s not the same as advertisements, people don’t get annoyed by your interesting/ valuable content about the brand. Prepared by: Tim Ho Image: domndi on Flickr
