  1. 1. The holistic web – developing a 360º online strategy<br />
  2. 2. Online today<br />2<br />You can say one thing about the online world with certainty <br />– it never stands still.<br />The next version is always just over the horizon <br />Today’s online users are less passive and better connected than ever before <br />They engage with each other and companies in a bewildering number of ways<br />Websites and microsites are just part of an overall online strategy: you need to consider your entire online presence. <br />
  3. 3. things that should be keeping you awake right know<br />3<br />Social media – the elephant in the room, outside the room, in your pocket<br />Charlie bit my finger! Make more engaging, more authentic and stickier content<br />Channel hopping. You should be asking how stretchy your content is<br />The age of the micro-celebrity. How can you help? How can you make your users feel special?<br />Show me the money. Link all activities with tangible objectives and measurable results.<br />
  4. 4. 4<br />A digital world of paradox<br />The 21st century user is not predictable. They are walking, talking, tweeting paradoxes. Four paradoxes:<br />One-to-one vs tribe <br />Fame vs anonymity<br />140 characters vs deep immersion<br />Getting things done vs getting away from it all<br />You must be flexible to the changing needs of your customers and be present wherever they are (in whatever form they prefer).<br />
  5. 5. You need to be more dynamic, more intimate and more expansive<br />Your website must be delicate enough to deal with flighty users but powerful and flexible enough to deliver the right experience<br />You must embrace the idea that users no longer have exclusive relationships with your site<br />You need to think about how to integrate with other sites, communities and content<br />All about the experience. User experience is a huge issue and has also a direct impact on how to generate revenue online.<br />5<br />What it all means for your online strategy<br />
  6. 6. All about the users<br />How can you best engage with your users’ lives in a way that makes sense for your business? <br />What’s in it for them?<br />People are unique<br />Engagement is about meeting customers on their terms. <br />Focus on what they care about and serving personalized content <br />Four C’s<br />Plan and create your online startagy with the 4C’s – content, communication, community and commerce<br />To have a fully holistic online presence, it’s important to consider each of these areas.<br />6<br />Introducing the holistic web<br />
  7. 7. Great content is sticky. The characteristics of the content you value are probably:<br />Directly relevant to you, your life or your work<br />Useful in getting something done<br />Providing new information or challenging your assumptions<br />Relatively simple and easy to digest<br />Engaging, human and even emotional<br />Great content is contagious<br />Contagious content needs to be fresh and attention grabbing to be picked up by the right people<br />Kevin Bacon<br />Find your connectors – someone who is connected to far more people than average.<br />7<br />Stickiness, contagion and Kevin Bacon<br />
  8. 8. Think about the customer first. If they’re getting 10, 50, 100 plus emails a day, why are they going to open yours?<br />No email is an island. Don’t treat outbound communication as separate from the rest of your online strategy<br />Testing times. Sometimes it’s good to go with your instinct. But what if that instinct is wrong?<br />Engaging your customer in the process will help you plan and create communications and content that resonates better and increases loyalty.<br />8<br />Are we on the same wavelength?<br />
  9. 9. 9<br />Socialize everything<br />Building your own community doesn’t need to be all or nothing. You can take a step-by-step approach and add social elements to what you’ve already got.<br />Rating/tagging<br />Chat/messaging<br />Expert Panels<br />Forums<br />Community with profiles and groups.<br />Blog with commenting<br />Walls/bulletin boards<br />Social bookmarking<br />Share with friends<br />Favourites<br />Contests/polls/voting<br />
  10. 10. You need to think about the whole buying cycle – from browsing to buying to aftersales<br />Your design must be crisp, clean and user-centered<br />Nice to haves are quickly becoming essentials<br />Making the sale<br />It doesn’t end with the sale. <br />10<br />Buy, buy or bye bye<br />There is no slowing down in online business growth. You need a fully holistic buying experience to get and protect market share.<br />
  11. 11. 11<br />Bringing it all together<br />Today’s online world is complex and exciting and the possibilities just continue to grow. Five things to do right now:<br />Start with the 4 C’s.
