SWG Web Presence 1.0 Brand Update August 27, 2004 IBM Confidential
Much has been said about the proliferation of social media – its multiple channels, variety of content and subjects . Something for everyone. Available to everyone. Immediate and impactful. What differentiates social media from prior media explosions is both its sheer volume and influence . 770 million people have visited a social networking site, according to comScore. Forrester Research says 4 out of 5 Americans use social media in some capacity 78% of consumers indicating they trust peer recommendations over other sources of information. It’s the combined power of this growing, massive distribution and influence that make social media such a potent force with consumers . These factors are re-shaping how organizations are engaging their customers through social media , their relationships to brands, products and services.
It enables marketing professionals to actively incorporate insights gained from social media into the underlying business and marketing strategy of their organization , helping them be more responsive, precise and agile to market demands.
And this is one of the reasons why there’s surge in digital advertising spend across the board. What’s of particular note is the growing area of social applications , widgets and listening platforms to manage the increasing volumes and influence of social media. The Winterbury Group forecasted $300M in spend in this area for last year. More importantly, as social media becomes a critical component of an organization’s marketing mix, its spend is being scrutinized, with better justification and metrics required to engage a vast social media landscape.
IBM CCI delivers unique capabilities by leveraging a variety of IBM technologies including Linguistic Innovations from IBM Research, Dictionaries and Sentiment rules from SPSS , Data Scalability from InfoSphere Big Insights and Powerful Analytics from Cognos . CCI scours the web for relevant conversations that provide valuable insight into key business drivers like campaign effectiveness, product insight, corporate reputation, customer care, and competitive analysis. Scalable - CCI crawls the web and pulls &quot;snippets&quot; from the billions of blogs and the hundreds of thousands of forums and discussion groups from publicly available websites. CCI leverages user-defined business rules to create snippets of consumer opinions that can be searched by different dimensions, such as date, keywords or region. Sentiment – Indicates if a consumer comment is positive, negative, neutral or ambivalent by measuring the &quot;tone&quot; of the comment. CCI enables you to identify: the sites that contain the highest number of positive or negative snippets and the most influential online voices (by analyzing snippets based on the media sources from which they are retrieved). Evolving Topics – Are groups of keywords that appear frequently within snippets. CCI determines which snippets share the same terms and then derives topics from these terms. For example, the top four keywords observed within a group of snippets that mention a particular sports shoe might be “football,” “soccer,” “World Cup,” and “South Africa.” These keywords suggest that the product was frequently discussed in the context of the 2010 World Cup soccer tournament in South Africa. Evolving topic analysis allows you to follow trends and common discussion topics across time and related keywords. Affinity Relationships – is the ability to analyze the relationship between any two dimensions or attributes by measuring the degree of affinity between them. Affinity measures how closely one dimension is related to another. For example, you would expect comments about seasonal merchandise such as skiing equipment to be more frequent during winter months. You would also expect such comments to be more common in regions that have ski resorts. There would be an &quot;affinity&quot; between the attributes of date and region. But if the affinity was noticeably stronger in one region over another, it might indicate the success of a marketing program for a particular brand of skiing equipment, which focused on that specific region We’ve designed the product around business drivers that determine the impact of social media on brand, product and service. These business drivers shape the underlying capability areas, which include: The industry’s most robust search capability Multi-dimensional sentiment analysis Contextual affinity relationships to key points of analysis And related and relevant topic association above and beyond what you initially search and analyze This is all completed and assessed across diverse and multiple source areas – from facebook, to billions of discussion boards, to Twitter to Newsgroups.
Our on-premises approach searches publicly available information on the Cloud ... It is then fed into our analytics platfom where different dimensions or kinds of content are analyzed against a standard dictionary to determine positive, neutral, negative or ambivalent sentiment – as one example. As I mentioned, you can also view this across different kinds of analysis, such as affinity and evolving topics. This is then reported via dashboards, which can then be communicated to relevant internal stakeholders. Let’s take a deeper look at how this works in more detail.
The well known model had been chosen for the fit between her image and following, and the beauty product’s brand values The same model is at the same time the spokes model for 4 other companies Looking at the model’s Facebook activities, the FMCG company began to question whether her activities of generated the best possible results for the brand. Visual campaigns (e.g. on Facebook) get the attention of the consumer and therefore lead to discussions and content in the web. Using CCI to analyse 5 months’ worth of internet ‘talk’, the FMCG company learned that the model’s advertising activity for it’s brand was commented on in only 3% of the snippets relating to all her advertising. To rule out any potential argument that beauty products just aren’t generating much buzz on the web, the company then researched, via CCI, how much activity was generated by a model sponsored by a competitive brand. Against 3 major product attributes, it was identified that the attribute that consumers generated most buzz around over an 11 months period, our company’s spokes model was mentioned in under 13% of the snippets.
A company that produces hair coloring products had previously relied on Google searches to identify what the current buzz is about. However, shifting to CCI, they learned that there’s an important difference between what consumers search for, and what they chat about. The conclusions were easy to draw – when consumers search on Google, it is often because they want an immediate answer to a here-and-now issue. In this example, what hair style to go for, or how to deal with a certain problem. When they chat with friends, blog or voice their opinions in other ways, their main interest areas are more long term, such as what color to opt for, and there is little reference to any problems – this isn’t something that appears to influence their product perceptions. For the hair care product company, the lessons were that marketing messages should not play on how the product deals with problems – but rather reinforce positive associations around choosing a great color and having an attractive hair style. Using a social media analytics tool like CCI provides a much richer amount of insight and level of detail; essential when big marketing moneys are at stake.
A manufacturer of washing powder was keen to establish what product features were important to the consumers and how it’s products fared against the competition. Analysing the buzz around the subject of ‘washing’, the washing powder manufacturer established that ‘smell’ is by far the most frequently discussed topic. This was based on an analysis of over 2,000 snippets over a period 11 months. Digging deeper, it turned out that Brands A and B were mentioned significantly more than the others, where this subject was concerned, although these same two brands had been the least talked about overall. Furthermore, the analysis showed that the sentiment related to brand A in the context of ‘smell’ was dividing the users – some saw it as very negative (which was made even more clear when drilling down to the actual snippets), whereas some people like the strong smell. Brand B’s comments around ‘smell’ were all positive. The company learned what product features are important to consumers and what to emphasise in the marketing messaging to differentiate it’s product from the competition in a meaningful, positive way.

Forrester Research The 2011 Listening Platform Landscape December 2010 Customer intelligence (CI) professionals require more from their listening platforms because they no longer just passively track online discussion. Instead, they use their listening platform to identify and act on insights found within social media. Now, listening platforms must deliver insights — not just data — and the ability to act on the insights. … social media sits in a silo with separate tools and technologies for analyzing the data. But, like any form of customer data, the future of social media is just more fuel for CI professionals. As firms progress their use of social media data, they’ll begin to integrate it with their broader customer databases.
Gartner Research Social Media Makes Marketing Metrics More Meaningful September 2010 Enterprise marketers and IT leaders must work together to build out high-capacity analytic platforms that combine traditional metrics and research methods with social-media analysis (SMA) to meet the challenges of contemporary marketing optimization and ROI analysis. Tying SMA, which is predominantly delivered as software as a service (SaaS), to offline channel results presents a particularly difficult integration challenge. Social media is not just an outbound engagement medium; it's also an intelligence acquisition process that can add value to many enterprise processes.
