No notes for slide
  • Altimeter- silicon valley-based research and advisory firm
    Larger companies are now embracing the Kraft and Coca-Cola model of a content centre of excellence
    Content resource often begins by being relatively dispersed across an organisation, but as capability increases it often comes together into a centralised team or unit
  • Social media has made corporate reputations even more transparent 
    The bank giant held a question and answer session on Twitter
    Following hours of ridicule, the bank chose to cancel its Q&A rather than attempt to answer the questions (‘What’s your favourite kind of whale?)
  • ‘@jpmorgan could you cancel your criminal trading operations next?’
  • Tesco was at the centre of the horsemeat scandal in Jan 2013
    This pre-scheduled tweet (complete with the decidedly equine ‘hit the hay’) was posted in the midst of the furore
  • ‘Not sure Tesco should make horse jokes’
  • Conservative Chairman, Grant Shapps’ Twitter post
  • Adobe – CMO.com
    Adobe: one of the largest software and analytics companies in the world
    CMO.com
    The Chief Marketing Officer’s ‘one-stop-shop for digital marketing insight’ – a ‘can’t miss for senior marketers’
    Aims to help CMOs and senior marketing executives stay informed and save time by providing digital marketing news from key players in the space

    Original exclusive content and curates insights from around the web to establish themselves as the go-to resource for CMOs, their target audience
  • Channels:
    CMO.com (American and European sites)
    Two weekly e-newsletters:
    Top 10 insights - editors choose the 10 most popular articles from CMO.com each week
    News in Review - a digest of the digital-marketing news of the week - ‘A way to keep up with the fast-paced world of digital’
    Twitter (33.5K followers) and Facebook (2,430 likes)

    Content:
    ‘They chose to curate, rather than create, at the outset’
     
    Digital marketing news and insights for Chief Marketing Officers and Senior Marketing Executives - ‘For and by marketing leaders’
    CMO comprises news stories, blogs and articles, interviews and slideshows
    Focus on curated content: CMO.com features a wealth of curated content from more than 150 sources (including eMarketer, brandchannel.com, Marketing Week, M&M Global, The Drum, NY Times)
    Adobe aggregates ‘the best of the best’ content from across the web, collecting, organising and filtering content around their own field of expertise
    Started producing (as well as curating) content in 2011, see ‘CMO exclusives’
    ‘CMO’s continued efforts to provide high-quality curation of valuable content from a hand-picked group of quality sources combine to make it one of the best examples of successful curation available in the corporate world’
    ‘Editors curate top stories daily from leading business and marketing trade publications, in addition to publishing original, interviews and thought pieces. This smart content is spot-on for my peers and me and makes CMO.com an important part of our daily media diet.’
  • American Express - OPEN Forum
  • Unilever- contract with Guardian Labs - Project Sunlight
  • Unilever- Guardian advertorial content


    Marketing campaign – Project Sunlight (multi channels, LOT of social media, UGC)
    More than a marketing campaign
    Sustainability as a driver for growth – Thomas Lingard Global Director External Affairs / Global Advocacy Director
    Challenging the Corporate Status Quo – Paul Polman
    10 year plan Sustainable living plan – double sales and halve the environmental impact of products in 10 years
    Actively promoting a long term sustainable policy ‘in sync with societal needs’ as a route to long term profitability
    Reducing speculative hedge fund share ownerships from 15 to 5% in 3 years = reduces fluctuations in share price

    Marketing is joined to the history of the company – William Lever 1885, Sunlight soap, Port Sunlight, village in North West England offering good housing and living standards to workers.
  • William Lever
    1st Viscount Leverhulme
    1885

    The sight of such wretchedness and poverty left an impression on William Lever which influenced him in the building of Port Sunlight
