Socialtech Adoption (2006-2015)

Core
Dynamics

• Just like the Internet, socialtech started with playful B2C venues/apps
• Executives respond: “Wasteful” - “Frivolous” - “Only for my kids”
– But they gradually become familiar with it as consumers
– In some cases, “fortunate accidents” happen when businesses try socialtech
at work (although most initiatives fail)

• Growing portion of prospects/customers/stakeholders comfortable with
interacting in transparent digital social venues
– Connect with each other for spontaneous problem solving
– Supply chain, reverse logistics, multimedia venue selection...

• Prospects self-educate about products, vendors, contract terms and
alternative approaches very quickly
• The bottom line: now many prospects want a collaborative
relationship with prospective partners

Scaling Business Benefits: Flipping the Funnel

Core
Dynamics

Legacy Funnel

Social Business Funnel

• Wide to narrow

• Narrow to wide

• Marketing leads from campaigns,
events and alliances/channel

• Go to where the people are

• Research lags, underutilized

• Listen to what they care about
(on their terms, not yours)

• Sales leads from personal
networks
• Sales engagement primarily
from one-on-one interactions

• Specific, relevant conversations
discoverable—now and forever

• Compromised when Sales &
Marketing don’t communicate

• Social business dialogs are
credible: prospects are active

• Transforms many general
leads into few leads over time

1/30/2012

• Build reputation by helping them

• Transforms few specific leads
into many leads over time

• Respond and adjust approach

The Economics of the Social Business Funnel
• The network effect: how few sustained interactions
make major impact
• Model behavior in transparent venues
• By serving few, you serve the crowd
– You are observed by many
– You build reputation, but it’s not obvious
– The tip of the iceberg

• Each interaction by someone often is broadcast to
their networks
• In most venues, each person has more than 100
people in their network
• Conversations spread, but you won’t readily see it
• Social business conversations are annuities

Core
Dynamics

The Glue of the Social Business Funnel
• B2B transactions are large, complex and often
career-defining
• Executive teams seek to mitigate risks by
demanding commitment
• People have always built relationship through
social actions

TRUST

– Based on interactions, we trust more or less
– The more interactions, the more opportunities to learn
– Interacting in groups shows confidence & integrity
• The group vets its people
• human groups scare providers but build reputation fast

– How can you interact online to increase trust?

• The bottom line: social business enables us to
develop relationships faster and less expensively
– Inexpensive online interactions let us identify and prequalify
– Expensive offline interactions are more effective

Social
Business

– Continue the conversation after the event

4. Channel collaboration via private social networks
– Identify, surface and share leads and opportunities much faster online
– Increase value of one-to-one communications

B2B Sales Evolution

Social
Business
Innovation

1. Respond to prospects’ discussions about situations that are relevant to
your firm’s product/service
2. Introduce business scenarios to hundreds of prospects in online
forums and ask for their feedback
3. Share articles that address prospects’ top of mind concerns via major
platforms (Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn) and in forums
4. Question assumptions about prospects’ needs or “market conditions”
5. Discuss proposed contract terms in forums and get other members’ input
6. Create networks in platforms that will deliver valuable articles for free
7. Blog about prospects’ situations and their thoughts about them
8. Note that all of these communications are digital and forever; these
artifacts are (mostly) individualized and can be reused repeatedly or
discovered by prospects at any time in the future

Action Steps: Strategy

Social
Business
Innovation

• Determine social business relevance to your business now
– The long-term adoption trend is clear: timing for your business is not

1

– Audit the ecosystem of social business venues: who’s talking where?

• Develop a vision for what you can share most efficiently
– Based on your definition of the ecosystem and what prospects value
– This grounds your social business and content strategy

• Define roles, workstreams and goals aligned with core competencies
– Marketing leverages analytical and communications competencies but gets
more direct and personal
– Sales flips the funnel by investing some cycles in social business conversations
– Engineering/product development/professional services add to highly filtered
conversations, adding unique value and driving your brand

• Develop metrics to measure real-time results of social business
interactions

– They respond most to people who help them with their problems now

Social
Business
Innovation

2

• Ask questions in relevant forums & manage discussions
– Ask questions about insights you learn by observing customer and prospect
conversations

• Develop highly specific search tools
– Marketing and Sales use tools to locate and monitor conversations

• Develop quantitative metrics based on trust development stages
• Create specific bits of content based on interaction
– Observe and interact with real people with specific challenges
– Conversations in which you add value are very compelling to other prospects

• Use social bookmarking to create libraries that refer to answers to
what prospects ask
– Make these links the best, even if they aren’t the firm’s content

Action Steps: Sales Execution

Social
Business
Innovation

• Adopt the mantra, “Serve, don’t sell”
– No one likes to be “sold to” because it refers to a salesperson with
his/her own agenda

3

– Traditional “selling” is a dinosaur; it reduces trust

• Select a few interested team members for the pilot
– Give them guidance, and let them dive in
– Social business and developing relationships online works differently than
offline, so your team has to experience it to understand it
– Manage your time investment carefully and scale when you see results

• Take the leap of faith and serve prospects online
– It will feel counter-intuitive at first, but it builds your reputation like nothing else
– Prospects will want to do business with you
– They will readily refer you

• Offer links to relevant conversations and artifacts
– Marketing will manage this library
