  3. 3. Social Media Phenomenon<br />300 Million using the social web – can’t be all kids.<br />$23 Billion advertising shift to online media in 2008 and $1B add revenue reported by MySpace no longer funny money.<br />25,000 business groups on Yahoo alone can’t be all faked.<br />A presidential campaign based on Social Media is more than an experiment.<br />Companies with $100 Million social media budget is no longer a game.<br />
  4. 4. Elevate your point of view for the next 50 minutes<br />Get away from the tools, blogs, campaigns and the other noise and elevate your point of view<br />Take off and have a look at the social media world from outer space.<br />Get a holistic view, let’s think business, implications and the consequential development.<br />
  5. 5. Let’s start with YOU, ME, all of us<br />When you select a brand or product<br />You read blogs<br />You check forums or online groups<br />You get some feedback in Twitter or other tools<br />You ask friends in your social network<br />When you are “ready to buy” your brand and product decision is pretty much set in stone<br />Most of us ignore advertising<br />Most of us dismiss cold calls<br />Most of us through mail in the waste basket<br />Most of us have spam filters<br />Most of us have changed<br />
  6. 6. Now let’s look at our companies<br />The current way of doing business:<br />Buy contact lists, do mail shots<br />From small Google ads to bill boards<br />Augment lead generation with cold calls<br />Qualify, engage, try selling …<br />Compete harder then ever – lower profits than ever<br />Lead flow dried out<br />The previous slide indicated: A brand decision is made before a sales process even began.<br />A huge disconnect between company and market<br />
  7. 7. Customer Experience Disconnect<br />The disconnect in the way we all select and buy – and the way we sell results in a rather uncomfortable customer experience.<br />Your companies influence in the purchase process is at the lowest level ever<br />“anybody experience with…” is the most asked question by customers in the social web – the answers are provided by everybody but you.<br />The “Customer Experience” happens outside the reach, the control and even outside the awareness of the businesses<br />
  8. 8. It doesn’t happen to me<br />This may work in B2C but not in B2B<br />Elaborate sales processes<br />Our industry is not ready<br />Maybe high tech but not…<br />My company is not ready for that<br />All the complicated structures and responsibilities<br />All good stuff – but security, integration…<br />IT infrastructure dominance<br />This time it doesn’t matter what excuses you may have<br />
  9. 9. Customers created their own customer experience model<br />
  10. 10. Social Media closing the customer experience gap<br />
  11. 11. Alignment: Social Media & Corporate Objectives<br />Companies can’t just say – “Hey everybody goes on LinkedIn, let’s have a page on Facebook and start twittering”<br />Companies need to manage their possible presence in the social web in a holistic way, incorporating:<br />Corporate objectives<br />Teams<br />Brands<br />Products<br />Processes<br />Companies are complex organisms that are managed by key value pairs like “Objectives – Achievements” “Investments – Returns” “Strategy – Execution” …<br />
  12. 12. Starting with a professional assessment<br />Your customers<br />Your status<br />Your team<br />Your partners<br />Your competitors<br />Citrix / Webex AssessmentPresentation July 22nd<br />
  13. 13. Creating a “Dual Presence” strategy<br />Companies need to be where their customers are<br />Businesses will need to be present in the various networks, groups, tools and initiatives<br />Groups on LinkedIN, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, SlideShare, YouTube, Flikr…<br />2. Companies need to have a space where they point their customers to<br />Businesses also need a “social home” where they can point everybody to – where they can invite their customers<br />
  14. 14. Social relationship considerations<br />ABC Corporation<br />Empower your partners because they “own” the social relationship to your customers<br />
  15. 15. Developing a social media strategy<br />10 Questions to form a social media strategy<br />What is the purpose of the engagement?<br />What are the main topics in the eco system?<br />What are the top goals of our customers?<br />What are our partners doing?<br />What are our competitors doing?<br />What places and networks are important?<br />What benefits can we offer?<br />What will we need to do to achieve our and our customers objectives?<br />How will we leverage our team, partners and other resources?<br />How will we measure progress and success?<br />
  16. 16. Cross functional Social Media engagement<br />Product Management<br />Social Media is a perfect seeding ground to develop a co-creation strategy<br />The most economic way to introduce a new product<br />Support Group<br />Augmenting support forces with engaged customers is very powerful – improves the customer experience<br />Logistics and Procurement<br />Trend analysis through a vast open network - think of the implication to procurement<br />Sales<br />Social selling is theoretically not new – yet with the new tools it is truly a whole new customer experience<br />Marketing<br />The biggest change in marketing history – don’t market INTO but WITH your ecosystem<br />
  17. 17. Tools Selection – What makes sense for business<br />ONLY IF WE KNOW:<br />What customers want<br />What our objectives are<br />How support needs tobe involved<br />What role PM plays<br />How sales will get engaged<br />How marketing will be involved<br />What our strategy is…<br />THEN WE SELECT THE APPROPRIATE TOOLS AND ENGAGE<br />
  18. 18. Social Media Leverage - Orchestration<br />Managing an ecosystem of thousands of customers and hundreds of partners with hundreds of team mates requires some planning<br />Groups in LinkedIn, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, MySpace and many other locations are resource demanding<br />Topics, timelines, sentiments and news need to be covered and at the same time company news, product launches, product updates, technology introductions, organizational changes need to be orchestrated<br />Social Media Planning goes beyond the traditional media plan in marketing. It needs to consider products, support and other topics.<br />
  19. 19. Create a social media services organization<br />The Social Media Service Team<br />Works as a service team with the internal departments and the external members of the social media strategy team<br />Very similar to IT, the Social Media Team supports all departments within an organization.<br />The SMT works on strategy, performs assessments, provides tools and services but will most likely not execute. In other words it provides advice, guidance, tools and services, but the sales team still remains the main contact to customers, the service team continues to provide the services and so forth.<br />The SMT may be in touch with the market but does not perform any business relevant activities with customers, prospects or partners.<br />
  20. 20. Resources, budgets, ROI<br />Tools may be even free – time never is<br />Social media investments are dominated by investments in human resources / human talents<br />Social media is all about people – it may well become even more massive as in the 80’s or 90’s when engineers were the most sought after people<br />We need to help companies to plan and allocate resources, plan the respective budgets and develop sound ROI models.<br />ROI<br />
  21. 21. Reporting – Reporting - Reporting<br />Network size<br />Connection strength<br />Influence<br />Social Capital<br />Sentiment<br />Communication frequency<br />Authority level<br />…<br />
  22. 22. Methodical approach versus a “campaign”<br />Objective driven “Creating a better business experience for the respective eco system”<br />Methodical assessment of the social landscape, customers, prospects, influencer, sentiments, brand presence, partners and competitors.<br />Creating a strategy, a media plan, using tools and frameworks to make that possible for an enterprise<br />Managing resources, budgets, ROI…Tools may be free – time never will.35 people cost $6 Million a year – you better understand what you are doing<br />Result: Turning a company into a well recognized, approachable, and highly competitive organization!<br />
  23. 23. Making Social Media The Customer Experience Base<br />Listen – and listen carefully. Not once, not through a survey but ongoing and strategically<br />Approachability – not through your voice activated computers but through your social strategy, leveraging networks and your eco system.<br />Leverage – the customers that have experience and are sought after experts<br />Use – the creativity of your customers in the product design phases and product introductions<br />Advocacy – by far the least expensive way of market and sell anything. Let you customers spread the word – provide a platform and make sure they have a benefit.<br />
  24. 24. Social Media Stories / Cases<br />Domino Pizza– Video causing disaster <br />Mattel – Mother’s feedback – Awareness<br />Starbucks – Customer Co-Creation of business<br />Burger King – Attention Deficit – Drop your friends<br />Blend Tec – Video Clip – Awareness<br />Dell – Holistic approach - Revenue<br />LinkSys – customers help customers – support cost<br />Cisco – Partner Engagement<br />Skittles – Lot of noise – but new business?<br />eBags – Product Quality Engagement +30%<br />Salesforce.com – Idea Exchange<br />The larger portion of social media engagement is based on a tactical marketing idea – rather than a customer experience driven holistic business strategy.<br />
  25. 25. The consulting side of the business<br />Some consulting cost ranges:<br />The assessment range: $ 5,000 - $50,000+<br />The strategy part: $10,000 - $300,000<br />Strategy execution: $ 5,000+ / month<br />Consultants range from $200 - $800/hour<br />Let’s say you task 35 people of your team@ $170k we are talking $6,000,000<br /> Make sure you have adequate guidance<br />$100 Million investments in Social Media do exist(1,600 people at $70,000 / year)<br />
