AMA SIG Social Media 11-4-09

  1. 1. AMA SIG – Social Media Social Media Planning for 2010 November 4, 2009 Tom Williams Steve Bell
  2. 2. Social Media Today – Tactical, stand alone efforts running today – Point projects across the company & diff departments • No cohesion, multi-year plans, procedures – The Intern is the Brand Manager?
  3. 3. Challenges – Challenges • Social Media still a mystery at the Top • Hard to control (anyone can do it) • Big organizations are inherently silo’d • First Amendment • Organizational control • Lack of business-focused tools • Lack of coordination / cooperation
  4. 4. Org Groups using SM Cust IT Legal Ops Sales MKTG Fin Svc
  5. 5. Twitter in Customer Service
  6. 6. Blog used for Promotion
  7. 7. Is Social Media a Fad or the Future? • Is Social Media just the new fad? Or is it the next wave? • Change how we will do business (or just what we do)? • If it is here to stay, what do companies need to do now? – From a business perspective
  8. 8. The State of Social Media in 2009 • Web sites and e-mail dominate overall marketing mix – Now used by more companies than trade shows and PR • Social Media has gained major momentum – 50% of companies launching a Social Media effort in 2009 • But most budgets don’t yet support social media. – It had the smallest share of ‘09 marketing budget. • Only 23% of marketers see blogs & communities as “highly effective”
  9. 9. How Social Media is Changing Corporate-Consumer Relationships Off-line and Web 1.0 Social Media Interactions Interactions “Community Marketing” Social Seller Buyer Seller Media Buyer Offer Interest Develop Respond Needs Match Fulfill Engage
  10. 10. Forrester Research’s Take: • “Social [Media] computing shifts influence from traditional media to communities and buyers. Marketers must shift from push communication to pull dialogue to capitalize on this groundswell.”* “Social Media will completely change Marketing” * Forrester Research, 2009
  11. 11. Social Media Becomes Web 3.0 • Social Media is a new tipping point. • Control swings from marketer to customer. – Marketing no longer controls the brand information. – Brand is in the hands of users!
  12. 12. This Changes Every (Marketing) Thing Today Future • MarCom drives brand image • Brand driven by customers – Aspiration, not reality – Reality is unavoidable • Company hides ugly news • Honesty is mandatory – Keep it out of public view – Can’t hide bad news: customers create it • “Spend” was everything: • Playing field leveled for mass marketing small guys via (free) SM – Can’t spend your way out of a problem • Product/Brand managers • Customers to drive products drive product evolution
  13. 13. Lessons for Social Media Planning from Web 1.0, circa 1997 • 1994: Public Internet launched • 1995: Company websites are IT projects • 1996: Marketing asserts Web is it’s domain, demands control of content. Brochureware is born. Web teams being formed: mix of marketing and IT staff. • 1997: First eCommerce online – Less than 35 companies sold more than $50,000 online in 1997 • 1998: Companies standardizing look, feel, across divisions. Rules and standards developed. – In ‘98, G.E. had 12 different website look and feels for each division. No eCommerce at all. All content was static. • 1999: companies start organizing, policies, etc
  14. 14. Internet Now Fully Matured • Fully integrated into business across organization – ‘net IT has long since rolled back into IT as a sub-group within IT – Marketing owns content and message. Now often the driver of marketing rather than an add-on. – Any department within business can utilize Internet and/or web if business needs demand it. • Age of specialization: – SEO, SEM, landing page design, engagement, interactivity, eCommerce, forecasting and demand planning, near-real-time content, etc. • Lesson for Social Media: Leapfrog ahead on same path followed by Internet 1.0 ten years ago.
  15. 15. Key Takeaways Web 1.0 vs. Social Media: • Similarities are astounding • We’re in a time of rapid change like Web 1.0 - but without the budgets! – Fast cycles – Difficult to predict needs – Little/no procedures, roles undefined and evolving – No one really in charge – Enterprise-scale tools not fully developed • Timing is right now! – Plan now to jump ahead a year in growth cycle of Social Media – Policies, organization, who does what?
