Presentation at Seminarium Peru on 15 November 2012 by Charlene Li in Lima. Two presentations were given.
Speech #1: Creating A Successful Social Business Marketing Strategy
With almost a billion members, Facebook's growth and stature is representative of the maturing social media landscape. Social technologies are no longer a bright shiny object, instead representing valuable relationships that require a coherent strategy and disciplined execution.
This session will make a case that social technologies should be a mainstay of your marketing program rather than a second cousin of interactive marketing. We'll look at the implications of this priority shift, using case studies from companies who are making changes to their overall business and marketing programs. We'll also go through a checklist of the actions you'll need to prioritize to be successful.
Speech #2: Title: Marketing In The Era Of Social Technologies
The excitement around social media often centers on the technologies -- Facebook, blogs, Twitter, etc. etc. But this is the wrong approach. Rather than think about crafting a strategy around social technologies, leaders should be pondering how they can use social technologies to support and strengthen customer relationships.
For many, Groundswell was the book that broke down barriers to accepting social technologies as an opportunity to make their businesses better. Open Leadership picks up where Groundswell left off, showing leaders how to open up business and create a culture that will make social media adoption–and on a greater level, adoption of a social business model–possible and successful.
We'll be looking at the art -- and the science -- of how to tap into the power of customers and employees, including examples of what organizations and leaders are successfully doing today, as well as how to get your organization started.
