  5. 5. Engagement ≠ number fans content management is key for activity • A large fan page does not lead to engagement if the brand does not manage the content (0,11 correlation). • In case of good conversation and content management, this correlation increases to 0,92 showing that you can tap into your social potential with a good conversation strategy.

  7. 7. The main drivers behind negative conversations are bad consumer service, product failure and bad advertisement 3 offline touchpoints you can work on every day! BUT… These were also the three most positively discussed themes!
  8. 8. 1 Consumers are in love with your product And promote the product to the early majority Technology is a popular topic on social media with a lot of detailed reviews. A “First Strike DLC for Black high number of serenades are retrieved Ops is now available on the from satisfied customers. The PlayStation Store!

(Deutsche Bank on their official example in a marathon, they Facebook page) enthusiastically engage in conversations about the event, training, and so on.
  11. 11. 4 Keep your promise Or it will backfire on social media Consumers are quick to vent their anger and frustration online “I will keep posting if you delete my in case of a problem. Especially posts all the time! It‟s been eleven in the case of bad after-sales months and I am still waiting for the payment of my lost luggage. My service or a bad customer luggage was lost eight out of eleven experience, they immediately flights, found seven times. And now they are dragging out the payment of post their grievances on social my claim!” media when promises are not kept. This is also the moment when price becomes a big topic of discussion.
  12. 12. Hate pages hardly exist They contain almost no conversations and have very few fans Protest pages are more realistic Corporate Social Responsibility is key
  13. 13. What if it goes wrong? Most companies apologize to their customers Consumers are redirected to the customer service department The reaction of consumers? None! Don‟t expect a thank you!
  14. 14. 5 Webcare and offline consumer care complement each other It is common practice It is a good „best practice‟ for “Hi, we're sorry to hear that; a month is a long companies to readily reply on time without a phone. “Dear Tino, we are very sorry to read their social media pages to about your frustrating experience Please e-mail us at with us.

Thank you for in Lebanon to help.” understanding. Best regards.” often pointed towards a external link or telephone number.
  15. 15. 6 When things really get out of hand Learn from PlayStation how even a disaster can turn into many likes and positive comments Last year PlayStation was the victim of a cyber attack. During our study, they launched an open letter from the senior Director corporate communications and social media, apologizing for the event. This more formal apology lead to over 10,000 likes on Facebook and in this case people did express their gratitude. Clearly, in the case of mistakes that affect a larger group of customers, apologizing can be a good way of restoring the trust in your brand.
  16. 16. The basic marketing tricks still work Although social media is a relatively new area, we should not be afraid of applying existing marketing principles that also work in the offline world. • Your fans like to share news about your company and like to be kept informed about the developments relating to their favourite brand. The newer and the hotter the news, the more conversation power. • Evoking curiosity: show consumers a little bit of what they can expect later or spread a rumour to evoke attention. • Giving away free things is used as a powerful mechanism to increase the number of fans or likes. • One of the main pillars of traditional advertising is that funny commercials work. And this is also the case on social media. „Joke of the day‟ is one of the most popular topics on Facebook pages. Jokes or funny one-liners are easily re-tweeted on Twitter. Also on YouTube we found that movies commented as being funny were often given a higher YouTube rating. Find out some more marketing tricks on the next slides
  17. 17. 1 Free always works Don‟t forget about branded utility “Join us for a FREE concert at the Capital One JamFest as part of The Big Dance Concert Series - Giving away free things is used as a powerful Sunday April 3 from 3:00 to 10:00 p.m. at Discovery mechanism to increase the number of fans Green, downtown.

No less than 5000 of its customers could experiences! win a special gift.)
  18. 18. 2 Evoking curiosity Generates traffic to your other digital touchpoints The classic communication models preach that it is important to draw the attention of “Have a PlayBook? We‟ve got big news!! An update to the BlackBerry PlayBook your target group before spreading the Tablet OS is coming THIS WEEK! Think video chat app, BBM, one-click calls and message. This is also true on social media. more! Read all about it here! (BlackBerry evoking curiosity and linking fans to their Brands typically first spread a rumour about official blog) something which will help them to get attention for the actual content.
  19. 19. 3 Gamification Reckitt Benckiser is very active on their Facebook page and regularly offers fans games to enjoy, in the process engaging their fans and probably creating new ones. One of these games is called Urban Thrill and invites fans to perform all sorts of stunts and climb heights. “Check the wrapper of your favourite Crunch bar to receive a promotional code “Perform stunts, climb new heights, feel the pace!

  20. 20. The power is in the mix of media • Social media are a natural place to talk about anything related to the digital environment. So, digital initiatives from brands will be picked up easily online. • When you spread something online, make sure that you also follow the rules of social media: tweets that contain a hash tag are more likely to be spread. • Don‟t think too much in silos. Go for integration of social media types, not separation. Don‟t forget about the offline too.
  21. 21. 1 Integration, not separation Go for integration between online and offline touchpoints Providing information on different offline and online platforms to patients and their families is key in the health sector. Integration, not separation of offline and online media is “”Fly away with Air France” is your new needed. monthly travel magazine on this page!

Also people mentioned more frequently that they had engaged in offline word-of-mouth, suggesting that if you integrate offline & online social media, you are more effective.
  22. 22. 2 Social media, the new website? Not a good strategy if you want to reach engagement “Question to you, Visa, do you have a credit card that works both in Europe and the Some consumers use social media as a USA?” replacement of the company websites. “I just moved to a new address.

Intercontinental? Please reply.”
  23. 23. 3 Hitting the sweet spot No difference between online and offline movies For the branded YouTube movies, we looked at the correlation between the topics that “Hi Lisa, the episode where Louis makes were raised in the comments and the us believe he can‟t read, can only be ranking of the movies (1-5 scale). The heard on the radio. As from today, these results revealed that movies with a higher radio spots are on air! Enjoy the radio spot!” (Comment on a YouTube movie rating were typically judged as from Jetair) „original‟, „nice‟, „warm‟ and „not boring‟. People also made the link more frequently with their personal situation: they mentioned recognizing certain aspects in the movie or even referred to their personal memories and childhood. The elements found are also the crucial characteristics in offline advertising.
  24. 24. Consumers want to collaborate with brands • Ask consumers for feedback on your products & communication • Co-create new products or campaigns with your fans • Invite them to think along with your brand • ...it will lead to a lot of activation on your digital platforms!
  25. 25. Consumer advice in 1 When consumers take over How can consumers be involved in <…> sales Getting feedback on Consumer help in your social media aftersales support strategy Can someone tell me if the DV6- 3127 is a good choice? Thanks!” (Comment on the Facebook page of HP Play) Sometimes collaboration is the only option “I just activated my new World Mastercard, what exactly is a World Mastercard? The Deutsche Bank now presents its Social website does not provide Media activities on a new website: “Follow much info.

Enjoy yourself and Ideas‟ page of the Facebook group of give us your feedback!” KLM, where people can brainstorm about all sorts of relevant topics for KLM.
  26. 26. 2 Treat them as colleagues Consumers love to know the people behind the brand “A new episode of your series „Behind the scene‟, at Air France this time, we're heading to Lomé in Africa! Flight AF861 by A340 to “Behind the scene” give Paris-CDG takes off at 22:00 consumers and fans a nice peak local time...follow Manal, our station manager in the into the daily business of a Togolese capital. What are company and its employees. her responsibilities before the flight's departure? She reveals all…” “Behind the scene” gives consumers and fans a nice peak into the daily business of travel companies and their employees. Air France uploaded a series of behind-the- scene videos about what they do.
  27. 27. 3 Be one of them Don‟t forget about the small things in live Brands need to be a friend to consumers. They need to act as a person, paying attention also to the small things in daily life. It is a crucial element to stress that you consider American Express is often referring to small events in peoples‟ lives. It leads to a lot of likes and comments on their pages. your consumer as an equal.
  28. 28. It is not about your brand • It is crucial to understand the (digital) lifestyle of your fans. A customized approach is so much more powerful! • Don‟t forget about the social graph
  29. 29. 1 It is about your customer Think broad! In the financial You should think broader than just your industry, we found brand and product. Especially on some positive buzz Facebook fan pages or on YouTube, on a marathon that was organized and people like to talk about what they are sponsored by ING interested in in general.
