Create community “ We monitor in excess of 1,500 discussion threads a day on very specific topics where we think we can add value to the conversation . It’s not possible to participate in all of the threads, but there are ways to identify which conversations are the most influential , which ones have the greatest reach , and those are the one in which we’re most likely to participate. We've also created a consumer advocate community as well as a platform that we’ll be launching in a few weeks to support their activities.” Marty Collins, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Windows Live, Microsoft

Case Study – Telstra – CALL MUM .”Designed to tug at the heart strings of Australia’s youth”
SM Insight “ The “guilt” proposition of “Call Mum” wasn’t resonating with the audience anymore. But while few people were talking about ‘Call Mum’ online, there were literally thousands conversations about how parents were connecting online .” The Power of Six Degrees – Lucy Jameson DDB London .
Positive Response “ The total number of unique visitors to the website. hit 125,000+ in the first few months (150% more than the previous campaign that ran for 7 months)..” The Power of Six Degrees – Lucy Jameson DDB London .
Positive response I find this new Facebook centric approach much stronger than their previous efforts. Where as the previous campaign all felt like a dead end this has some long term thinking involved. Also the strategy of targeting mums who are new to online is much better than guilting kids to call their mum. www.Bannerblog.com.au .
