  61. 61. Examples of how Your Company can use Social Networking? • Facebook Business Page focused on brand building, introducing new techniques and processes, and feeding new content. Also, connecting to targeted groups • MySpace Page focused on brand building, feeding new content, and connecting to groups • YouTube - Monthly videos of Management team, tour of facility, etc. Feature on all platforms • Flickr - Upload all new event photos, photos of the facility, etc and incorporate into other platforms • Twitter - Connect to your customers • Blog - Update 1-3 times a week.

  62. 62. How will this Benefit Your Company? • You can appear to be transparent to your customers: – Allowing your customer to be involved with your company (e.g. immediate customer input) will build brand loyalty and a sense of “they are listening to me” – Interactivity and constant updating will keep customers coming back to find out what’s new and what the company is offering 75
  63. 63. Why Use Social Networking? • It is ALREADY happening • Many companies are currently benefitting and profiting from utilizing some or all of the social networking resources available • Social networking sites gets you directly involved with the customer’s life and lifestyle • By using social networking sites people who have never heard about your company are getting an inside look about what your company has to offer and what other people think about it too • Connect with your customers where they live.... 76
  64. 64. Marketing Without Marketing: A Brand Hijack Manifesto Let go of the fallacy that your brand belongs to you. It belongs to the  market. Co-create your brand by collaborating with your customers. Scrap the focus groups, fire the cool chasers, and hire your audience. Facilitate your most influential and passionate customers in translating your brand’s message to a broader audience. Be patient. Your brand initiative could take years – or weeks – to take off. Be flexible. Carefully plan every step, but be totally open to having the story rewritten along the way. Lose control. Free yourself to seize sudden opportunities that only last for moments. Resist the paranoid urge for consistency. Embrace the value of being surprising and imperfect. Respect your community. Draw the line between promotion and the adbusting trinity of manipulation, intrusion, and co-option. Let the market hijack your brand.
