The Social Customer BUSINESSWEEK, DECEMBER 19, 2005 "Companies used to focus on making new, better, or cheaper products and services....Now the game is to create wonderful and emotional experiences for consumers around whatever is being sold. Its the experience that counts, not the product." “People…want capabilities and options, not uniform products…business is there to provide the tools.” “The Knowledge Economy is giving way to the Creative Economy...” (Knowledge has become a commodity so the solution is to) "focus on innovation and design as the new corporate core competencies."
Social CRM Definition
The Social Customer From CRM to Social CRM "CRM is no longer just a model for managing customers but one of customer engagement"
The Social Customer Social CRM “SocialCRM is a philosophy & a business strategy, supported by a technology platform, business rules, workflow, processes & social characteristics, designed to engage the customer in a collaborative conversation in order to provide mutually beneficial value in a trusted & transparent business environment. It’s the company’s response to the customer’s ownership of the conversation.”
The New Business Model
The New Business Model ,[object Object]
Each customer wants a personalized experience…
Understand their relationship with you exists because they appreciate the experience
But how do you begin to “know” customers?First, learn how they interact with you. Ultimately, the tools for the customer to manage their own experience are paramount Give them access to information that allows them to make informed, empowering choices which thus, provide value
The New Business Model The users and producers become partners/collaborators Which means insight about your partner, rather than data on your customer becomes the mindset.  The business moves to be an aggregator of products, services, tools and experiences, rather than simply a producer of goods and services for sale The user is an advocate of the experience and, directly and by extension, the company
New Business, Little Fella
Community retailing Multiple brands Established (Adidas, Vans) Independent (The Kazbah) Community of 800,000 Own clothing line (Sons of Liberty
Helps indie designers sell their wares Promotes and advertises to the community Recruit to the community and recruit from the community
Street Teams Sign up, get unique code Get friends to buy on the site using unique code Discounts plus points for Street Team member Street team member can upload photos, videos, earn points (community themes) Return is cash & free clothes 1% of their network = 15% of their revenue Over 8000 advocates on street teams
Transformative Social CRM Models
The New Sales Model New approaches to lead generation (non-traditional social sources) (community participation) Better handling of opportunities (Employee engagement) (Oracle Social CRM, Lotus Connections) Need for competitive differentiation of a new kind but through organizational knowledge & sales intelligence (InsideView) Reputation, influence, persuasion Based on customer insight
The New Customer Service Model What do you do – Customer Service Models Agent based call centers (Ayava, Genesys, Siebel, Amdocs) Process based CRM (Sword-Ciboodle) Community driven customer service (Helpstream, RightNow) Customer experience focused call customer service (Kana) Web self service (RightNow)
The New Marketing Model Authenticity and trust is what matters – more than even the “consistency” of the message
The New Marketing Model Because the model is built on trust, the reputation of the company, not the message, becomes the brand That means, both the perception but also the actual quantified assessment of the marketing practices as certified by third parties (TRUSTe, etc.) The practical side would be an authenticated or accredited message that is validated by the ISP or whoever is transmitting it. Marketing becomes the center point for engagement of the customer Messages are not to be pushed at the customer about products and services; Marketing uses the media tools that are available to engage the customer But with authenticity (Walmart & Edelman screw-up)

Getting Results: Creating Advocates

Advocacy Advocates are created through continuous: Engagement (conversation) Transparency (visibility) Authenticity (honesty, straightforward behavior)
