  • Purpose is to give a general introduction on social media in a broad context.\nI don’t have the intetion (& time) to go in depth on the matter.\nMain target is to warm you up for further investigation.\nPleased to give a next session if necessary.\n\nThis presentation will be uploaded to slideshare & internanet\n
  • To start...\nNice counter indicating how fast it goes.\nI would “deal with it or flee” (cfr. “fit or flee”)\n\nEen Zettabyte (afgekort ZB) is (1021) bytes. Zetta is de SI-prefix voor een triljard.\n
  • Belgian Social Media Monitor Sept 2010\n\n\n(growth compared to 1 month ago / growth compared to 1 year ago)\n\n\n\n---\nLinkedin: hit the 1 million barrier\nFacebook: hit recently the 750 million barrier\nNetlog: still growing, albeit slowly\n
  • \n\nAnd why => next slide\n
  • Why should we start ourselves?\n\n\nAs a starter - to get “into it” - and because we find them interesting, we want to start with some trends. \n\nthis slide:\nConsumption of social media, which includes user-generated content from sources like Wikipedia, Twitter, and Facebook, continues to increase among the IT professionals\nProfessionals reported significant increases in consumption of social media, which continues to outpace that of editorial and vendor content\nNo longer are professionals limited to researching content produced by editors or solutions providers, but can now also turn to peers who have firsthand experience with the products and solutions being evaluated. \nSocial media is now a trusted resource that is relied on by professionals to make workplace decisions. \nMarketing dollars have been following this trend, with analysts like Forrester predicting an increase in social media marketing spend to $3.1 billion in 2014\n\n\nSOURCE:\nEngaging the New IT Buyer: 4 Social Media Trends and How Marketers Should Adjust\n\nDate of the research: April 2011\n(Conclusions based on document of 2010)\n\n\n\n\n
  • What’s important here: “experience-based advice”\n> advice from our peers\n\nSome statistics\n64.4% of respondents cited “solving problems”.\nThis response was followed closely by the need to “stay current and learn what my peers know” at 64.3% of survey participants. \n55,5% “making better decisions based on insights from like-minded professionals” \n\n\nBottom-line: LEARN FROM YOUR PEERS\n\n\nTips for marketeers:\n• Listening to relevant conversations among customers and prospects\n• Filtering those conversations to determine where they can contribute\n• Identifying company employees with the expertise to respond \n• Linking back to the company site when appropriate to add value to the conversation\n
  • Among the survey respondents, 54.8% use their company e-mail addresses in best practice communities. \nIn comparison, 33.2% of respondents use their company e-mail addresses in professional networks like LinkedIn, \nand only 7.8% use it in social networks like Facebook and MySpace.\n\nMeaning\nUsing a company e-mail address is an indication that professionals themselves recognize these communities as part of their job.\nFor marketers, this trend is confirmation that best practice communities, more than any other channel surveyed, give them a greater chance of reaching their target audiences while they are on the job or in the workplace\n\n\n\nMore on this (with figures of April 2011):\n
  • To block or not to block - that’s an important question\n\nMany companies block the use of social networks like > Facebook and MySpace (45.6%), > mediasharing networks like YouTube and SlideShare (39.4%), and> microblogs like Twitter (32.7%). \nHowever, a smaller percentage of professional networks (11.4%) and best practice communities (4.9%) are blocked by these same companies.\n\nFor the marketeer:\nGreater social media success can be achieved when employees across the organization engage with customers and prospects as well\n

  • Social CRM: a reality check part 3 (28/4/2011)\n\n\n\nLooking\n
  • A good example of what the (IT) world is heading for is Salesforce:\n> all in the cloud\n> full social media integration (crm)\n> an extensive market place with tousands of extension\n> fully mobile\n\nResult 94% op Salesforce clients recommend sales force.\nGreat result! \n\nWhat would be the result with SKT customers.\n
  •\n\n\nOf the 38% of respondents who say their company performs ahead of its peers, 74% say that data are “extremely valuable” in achieving competitive advantage. \nAccuracy and timeliness are the most important attributes of data, ahead of the amount of detail the data offer\n77% of respondents say data make an important contribution to their customer support/customer relations efforts, and 71% say it helps them support their sales processes.\nIn fact, only 27% of respondents say their firms do a better job of using information than most of their competitors. A large amount of data sitting on a company’s servers, unused, is not uncommon and can be a sign of a sub-optimal data strategy. \nCompanies sometimes end up unintentionally approaching data from a management perspective and ignoring its value to others lower down the hierarchy. The companies that fi nd ways to “democratise” their data often gain an advantage. Indeed, 77% of the companies that aim their data initiatives at all employees, regardless of level, say they’ve found ways to make data extremely valuable to their business.\n
