  14. 14. How do companies integrate social media into organizational structure?
  15. 15. Organic • No one department manages or coordinates efforts. • No formalized structure • Employees efforts are not connected to others. Advantages Disadvantages • Looks authentic. • Employees across the company are involved. • Erratic customer experience. • Inconsistency in branded messages. • Social media efforts not tied to companies overall business objectives.  2014 Customer Insight Group, Inc.

  16. 16. Centralized • Centralized is often called the “tower” — a standalone group within a company that’s responsible for social media programs. • Social strategy is funneled up to one group for execution and management. Advantages Disadvantages • Consistent customer experience. • Coordinated resources. • Rapid response. • Regulated industries can implement and control the message. • Team sets the direction for the organization, schedules posts, oversees responses. • Message may appear as more “corporate” and less authentic. • May not capture the “voice” of employees. • Difficult to scale.  2014 Customer Insight Group, Inc.

Advantages Disadvantages • Business units have individual freedom to deploy. • Common experience is shared. • Hub is the enabler and sets guidelines for technology, measurement, training, workflow design and policies. • Requires constant communications from all teams to be coordinated. • Connecting lines to the hub maybe severed and information sharing not achieved.  2014 Customer Insight Group, Inc. All rights reserved. • www.customerinsightgroup.com • +1 303.422.9758
