  • This is about marketing and a theory of collective consciousness. How does marketing relate to the social and political aspects of life. We all know how it impacts the natural or individual realm of life... and have some understanding of the social realm. But whats the deeper, political or sociopolitical meaning behind marketing consciousness. After providing a background of marketing yesterday and today and in its variety of facets the discussion will turn to the comparative view of the relationship between common marketing and the potential for a potent or uncommon marketing. The topics will be: 1.) the power of marketing in politics and business through voter turnout and sales. 2.) the fame/popularity as it hinges on the changing media of marketing, tech and social media. 3.) The power of personhood in moving the People, e.g. Barack Obama &amp; Steve Jobs. ITS NOT EASIER TO GET FAMOUS ON SOCIAL MEDIA... ITS EASIER FOR PEOPLE TO MAKE YOU FAMOUS... “getting famous” doesn&apos;t happen

    12. 15. [MKTG 2morrow: What It Means]
    13. 16. [Case Studies & Conclusions]
    14. 17. [The Cool: Business vs. Politics] <ul><li>Politics used to own MKTG in very organic form (pamphlets, propaganda, pins & buttons) </li></ul><ul><li>Political MKTG was very powerful </li></ul><ul><li>Now, people are more engaged by Business MKTG </li></ul><ul><li>60s counter culture 'elected' business MKTG over politics to express generational ethos </li></ul><ul><li>Citizen used to be king in democracy, now consumer is king, People given more power in business than in politics </li></ul>
    15. 18. [Cool Cnt'd: Business vs. Politics] <ul><li>Voter Turnout: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reps & Dems have +95% 'market share' in America </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Average turnout: Pres. ~60%-50%, Midterm ~40% </li></ul></ul><ul><li>2004-2005 Election and Sales Survey </li></ul><ul><ul><li>55% president voter turnout </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>People recently bought: 76% computer, 67% mobile phone, 47% video game consoles </li></ul></ul><ul><li>37% of those people voted in midterm election the next year where 33 governors were elected 130 congressional seats contested, 6 state raised minimum wage and 7 states banned same-sex marriage </li></ul>
    16. 19. ...The Lesson: The Message Moves The establishment, the businesses, and the politicians must learn the language and mode of communication of the people.
    17. 20. [Power & Brand Personality] <ul><li>Barack Obama & Steve Jobs – two sides of a coin </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Both hip, popular, admired, have big personal followings </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Obama represents political MKTG's attempt to follow business MKTG, building a solid and identifiable brand around the person </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Hope, change, “yes we can” + his likeability = purchase power (literally and figuratively, campaign merchandise sells around $2000/week, Obama poster sells independently for $2000) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Steve Jobs, represents a generation, ideals, dreams, ingenuity, and strong individualism, Apple $108 Billion in sales in 2011... yep! </li></ul><ul><li>Obama and Job's built brands and 'products' where the people could insert their names, do what you say in the process of saying </li></ul><ul><li>Levi Strauss “Go Forth” ad campaign 'failure' serves as example of how brand personality, and a tight one, is indispensable, especially when political ethos is involved... people don't connect with politics </li></ul>
    18. 21. ...The Lesson: The Messenger Moves The brands and businesses must transform themselves as the message changes. The brands and businesses must go through the social revolutions with the people. Like J.P. Sartre, liberate others with your own liberation. But is this just to remain in power?
    19. 22. [Social Media, MKTG, & Society] <ul><li>Social Media makes communication, word of mouth, and 'fame' more easy for people, or any individual </li></ul><ul><li>A lot of excitement surrounds social media and people believe social media to be hugely popular and a vehicle for fame and wealth </li></ul><ul><li>Truth is: Social media can't make someone famous... social media is a twist on technology, which was just a twist on communications in general... the underlying interactions still take place... (gossip, word-of-mouth, friend groups, social circles, now they are even more defined etc.) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>People make people famous, always have, always will </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Social media gives individuals new power to express themselves </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Virality is not real fame... people share stuff on Social Media outlets because it's easy, not just because its exciting... will they give you their money... will they chose you to help them self-define? </li></ul></ul>
    20. 23. [Social Media, MKTG, & Society] 2 <ul><li>Lady Gaga, $90 billion Tour </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Viewed on social media as a facilitator of discussion and community </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Promoted more often then thought through traditional, industry media on social media formats, Vevo, Online News, Show appearances, tour ads </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The Misadventures of an Awkward Black Girl </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Everyday person enabled to make a wildly popular tv show, with some friends and a camera, because people watched </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Levi Strauss, Go Forth campaign on Youtube (Virality) </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Top-down message, didn't let consumers define the message, thats what Web2.0 is for, virality was just interest </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Brand didn't take on a definitive personality, it took on and spoke to an ideal, didn't speak current language, 60s mode </li></ul></ul></ul>
    21. 24. [Social Media, MKTG, & Society] 3 <ul><li>Fun Statistics about Social Media </li></ul><ul><ul><li>65% adults use social media (53% growth since 2005) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Americans spend 23% of internet time on social media </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Means 77% of time spent still w/ traditional media </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>3 hrs/ month watching video online (not necessarily social media) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>5% people use social media to engage celebs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>67% use it to stay in touch with friends, 64% family </li></ul></ul>
    22. 25. [Social Media, MKTG, & Society] 4 <ul><li>The new wave of 'internet democracy' has strong implication for a rebirth of democratic activity and consciousness </li></ul><ul><li>Information, even history is written democratically (e.g. Wikipedia), winners don't write history anymore, everyone does </li></ul><ul><li>Social media was at the heart of much of the Arab Spring </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Can become 'political media' when the sociopolitical atmosphere is dire, social media and Web2.0 are online dialogs </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Governments could adjust more to social media guarantees then, pseudo-civil society guarantees, Web space will allow civil society to thrive, organizations and circles can mobilize </li></ul><ul><li>Let people discuss politics and develop consciousness, increase web infrastructure around the world, any one anywhere can make change </li></ul>
    23. 26. [Go Forth: Good & Bad] <ul><li>Levi's Go Forth campaign criticized heavily, drove fewer sales than hope, but achieved decent virality online (virality = not real fame) </li></ul><ul><li>Sociopolitical/inspirational content </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Lacked: brand personality, democratic communication model </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Potential: Could inspire optimistic and audacious people, would hit home all across the Arab world right now, and even for occupy movement sympathizers </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Campaign realigned with “Bradford, PA” and economic troubles </li></ul><ul><li>Can You tell people “the world is yours and it is what you want it to be” and then not let them dictate and engage the campaign directly? </li></ul><ul><li>Must have a video contest, message board, or something interactive, give the people the voice you say they have </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Don't tell, show </li></ul></ul>
    24. 28. Dear Levi's, Put message in the people's hands and let them dictate what is important, what they want in this world, who they want to be, and how they want to fit into the amazing legacy that Levi's has signified for years.
    25. 31. [Social Media, MKTG, & Society] 5 <ul><li>Web2.0/Social Media is just society acting itself out on the internet </li></ul><ul><li>Revolution such as Arab Spring use social media </li></ul><ul><li>When Social Media sites were blocked by governments, people made their own makeshift web2.0 </li></ul><ul><li>Graffiti became interactive, public marketing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Martyrs pictured and ideals made known (Kyra Hooks, Northwestern 2011, Posner Fellowship project on Graffiti and Democratization in Arab Spring) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>People and society will still function without Social Media, it just makes things faster, easier, and more widespread </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Without socioeconomic comforts, America might awaken politically, and social media would become political media </li></ul></ul></ul>
    26. 32. ...The Lesson: The People are king Whether the citizen is king or the customer is king, The People have always been in charge. If one has power it is because a large enough sum of people did not take the power back. Social Media is a product of people. Social Media does not make anyone famous, because in the end, people made and continue to make Social Media famous. If you want to enjoy power at the people's behest... listen to them speak...
