  3. 3. #TheChgChallenge 1 st WorkshopOur first workshop is focused on somethingsorely lacking in social media marketingtoday: –  Objectives identification –  Strategic content planning –  Coordinated tactical alignment 3
  4. 4. Groundswell Objectives•  Listening – Research (monitor customers’ conversations)•  Talking – Marketing (two way conversation)•  Energizing – Selling (customers, ea other)•  Supporting – Customer Support (ea other)•  Embracing – Development (crowd-source)•  Charlene Li & Josh Bernoff, Forrester Research, 2008 4
  5. 5. Objectives & KPIs 5
  6. 6. Objective: Thought-leadership projection•  Objective 1: Thought-leadership projection (a content strategy for goals of brand attribution or to influence sales)•  Rationale: Traditionally, companies have attempted demonstrating industry expertise to enhance brand reputation or to persuade sales (largely B2B but B2C as well). 6
  7. 7. Objective: Brand awareness & fan promoters•  Objective 2: Brand awareness and fan promoters•  Rationale: Traditionally, companies have attempted to build new awareness of their brand in market place for reasons of competitiveness or eventual sales growth (largely B2C but B2B as well). 7
  8. 8. Objective: Crowd-sourcing & Support•  Objective 3: Crowd-sourcing/R&D/Product support•  Rationale: Traditionally, smart companies have done marketing research to drive product attributes (largely B2C but B2B as well). Modern companies can use social media to not only capture more input more easily for product attributes, but even use the groundswell itself for collaboration and creation. 8
  9. 9. Objective: Customer Retention & Rewards•  Objective 4: Customer retention/upsales•  Rationale: Traditionally, companies have found it more profitable to retain and upsell existing customers than to buy new ones. Social media enables customer communities for just that. 9

  12. 12. Broadcast Communications•  The strategy map shows how social media is often used today with a traditional advertising broadcast promotional model.•  In the digital world, hub-and-spoke models are constructed.•  The goal shown here is to drive social and other channel traffic to a website or landing page (or increasingly a Facebook page).•  As evidenced here, messages promoting the hub are pushed out to channels. 12
  13. 13. Driving Traffic to a Hub; Grabbing Contact 13
  14. 14. Funnel Conversions 14
  15. 15. 15
  16. 16. Community-Focused Social Engagement•  A real strength of social media lies in finding existing target audience communities and engaging in conversation with them there.•  People buy from those they know and those who help them with advice, info, etc.•  Just as it works in live, physical communities, this works in digital communities as well.•  By finding and collaborating in these groups, marketers can pull users to the marketing objectives, as in the map shown. 16

Then, you might sign up for text messages and e-mails to stay informed about the campaign. As a supporter, you may make your first donation or register to vote.•  Social - Once invested, you may post a comment to a friend’s profile, telling them why Obama was the right candidate for them. Perhaps you would jump to the MyBarackObama.com (MyBO.com) Web site, where you would create an account. After getting positive feedback on the site, you might join or even create a group.•  Advocate - To drive interest in the group, you may post pictures, write blog posts or create a video declaring your support, which you could post to YouTube. With insights and materials from the campaign, you might host an offline event where you would ask supporters to donate money, register to vote, canvass or phone bank. 23
