Introduction from the Authors!
As social approaches its first decade of enterprise integration, we
still see experimentation in models and approach. Our findings
show that there is no one way to become a social business.
Instead, social businesses evolve through a series of stages that
ultimately align social media strategies with business goals.!
Our hope is that the quotes and data shared in our previously
published research, and this presentation, help provide some
perspective on where your company is today so that you can
chart your own course for social business evolution. !

the consumer in your space.!

Conclusion!
While models, budgets, and investments will shift over time, the
biggest impact of social media will be in the social contract
companies establish with customers and employees. In the next
two years, we expect social to become part of a bigger movement
where social joins web, mobile, and other digital initiatives to lead
an integrated and orchestrated transformation. Social becomes
just one part of the overall approach to successfully engage, learn
from, and lead connected customers and employees. But it is the
evolution into a Social Business where stakeholders learn what it
takes to adapt existing models, processes, and methodologies as
part of an overall change management initiative.!

[Slides] The State of Social Business 2013: The Maturing of Social Media into Social Business

  • 1. The State of Social Business 2013: ! The Maturing of Social Media into Social Business ! Includes findings from four years of Altimeter Group’s annual survey of digital strategists (2010-2013), plus research interviews conducted with top strategists! Brian Solis, Principal Analyst! Charlene Li, Founder and Analyst!
  • 2. About This Presentation! This presentation includes Altimeter Group research shared in two previously published artifacts. We are publishing this research in the form of a PowerPoint presentation so that you can use and share our Open Research within your own presentations.! The data charts in this presentation are from the report, The State of Social Business 2013: The Maturing of Social Media into Social Business (available at: http://bit.ly/ssb-2013). Data is based on Altimeter Group’s annual survey of digital strategists, from 2010-2013. Data charts are also available for download and embeds at Flickr: http://bit.ly/ssb-2013-charts.!

  • 3. Introduction from the Authors! As social approaches its first decade of enterprise integration, we still see experimentation in models and approach. Our findings show that there is no one way to become a social business. Instead, social businesses evolve through a series of stages that ultimately align social media strategies with business goals.! Our hope is that the quotes and data shared in our previously published research, and this presentation, help provide some perspective on where your company is today so that you can chart your own course for social business evolution. !

  • 41. Conclusion! While models, budgets, and investments will shift over time, the biggest impact of social media will be in the social contract companies establish with customers and employees. In the next two years, we expect social to become part of a bigger movement where social joins web, mobile, and other digital initiatives to lead an integrated and orchestrated transformation. Social becomes just one part of the overall approach to successfully engage, learn from, and lead connected customers and employees. But it is the evolution into a Social Business where stakeholders learn what it takes to adapt existing models, processes, and methodologies as part of an overall change management initiative.!

Editor's Notes

  1. The State of Social Business: 2012 Benchmark StudyIn our report, The Evolution of Social Business: Six Stages of Social Business Transformation, we found that even though social media is making its way into more and more businesses, companies that adopt it are not created equal when it comes to social media maturity.Our research revealed a distinct gap between companies that execute social media strategies and those that are truly a “social business.” A social business, as we defined in the report, is the deep integration of social media and social methodologies into the organization to drive business impact.As companies mature in social, we identified a natural progression through six distinct stages:Stage 1: Planning — Listening and learning to ensure a strong foundation of strategy and resource development, organizational alignment, and execution. Do not currently have a significant presence in social media channels.Stage 2: Presence — Staking claim and moving from planning to action, establishing a formal and informed presence in social media.Stage 3: Engagement — Making a commitment where social becomes critical to relationship-building along the entire customer lifecycle.Stage 4: Formalized — Organizing for scale in social deployment and engagement across multiple departments, business units, and sub-brands.Stage 5: Strategic — Becoming a social business; social initiatives are gaining visibility through business impact. Social methodologies and technologies become integrated across functions.Stage 6: Converged — Business is social; social media strategies weave into the fabric of an evolving organization driven by a vision of improving customer and employee relationships and experiences.We found that while most companies have an established presence, engage actively with customers, or even have formalized programs, only 17% consider themselves at the higher ends of social business maturity (see Figure 1).
  2. Make sure senior-level execs are part of strategy development and that you have sponsorship from the top-down. Get all stakeholders involved from the beginning and make them as knowledgeable as you possibly can, taking ownership. You can’t do it on your own. Remember, it’s a change management challenge as much as anything else. Have a plan for this before diving into an engagement strategy.
  3. Social Media Programs Still Foster “Social Anarchy”Social media programs often exist in siloes within the organization, creating a form of “social anarchy” when leadership, strategy, and organization are not aligned. We found that only 26% of companies approach social media holistically, operating against a common enterprise vision (see Figure 2).
  4. Start with helping the organization understand the importance of social media to its members and make it come to life for them. Many of Wellpoint’s Board members or executive leaders aren’t even on Facebook; social media is foreign to them. It’s still a little bit of a black box to some folks.
  5. Only Half of Executives Are Aligned with the Social StrategyIn addition, only 52% of executives are informed, engaged, and aligned with their company’s social strategy (see Figure 3). This, of course, limits social media’s growth path. We found, though, that executives who get on board with social do so because strategies track toward tangible business objectives. This places organizations across multiple stages, including Presence, Engagement, and Formalized in their social business evolution.
  6. Having a c-level sponsor who is ready to take on risk is crucial to success. A lack of this person will create paralysis, especially in a regulated industry where people are careful and afraid.
  7. Social Business Gains Traction Throughout the OrganizationA key part of social business is how and where it lives in the organization. We found that 78% of companies have a dedicated social media team — with 22% having them at both the corporate and division level (see Figure 4). Only 22% do not have a dedicated team yet.
  8. Come to agreement on the governance model before moving on to the strategy and program.
  9. Organizations Still Experiment with Several Models to Support Social MediaOrganizations continue to use a variety of models to support social media programs. We found that no one format is permanent or dominant. Many companies start with a model that mirrors the culture of their company today. As programs develop, new models are tested to expand social media across disciplines, departments, and lines of business.Most companies continue to organize as Hub and Spoke (35%), but the biggest shift was companies moving toward Multiple Hub and Spoke, increasing from 18% in 2010 to almost 24% in 2012 (see Figure 5). Multiple Hub and Spoke is gaining traction with organizations that move along the stages of social media maturity as it brings disparate groups together to solve for challenges that prevent social integration into everyday workflow.
  10. Social Media Headcount Expanded RapidlyThe number of full-time employees supporting social media is on the rise. Between 2010 and 2012, companies with over 5,000 employees have increased staffing for enterprise social efforts (see Figure 6). Moreover, the number of people in specific social media roles has also increased over time (see Figure 7).
  11. “To get buy-in at a large organization, it’s more than putting an evangelist in place. It has to be a shared process and a journey that everyone takes together — a journey that has leadership associated with it. Having a strong leader in place to bring process to light with a cross-functional team is essential.”
  12. Start with clear roles and responsibilities and a cross-functional team that shares responsibility of leading into the future. Take off the day-to-day hat, and work for the broader good. Define roles clearly to help drive more success.
  13. Marketing and Communications Become the Social Media CoreBy far, most core social media teams reside in Marketing or Corporate Communications and PR, accounting for 66% of all businesses surveyed (see Figure 8). Social media is also making headway as its own group, now matching core digital teams at 14%. As social media becomes part of everyday engagement across the enterprise, the core social media team will continue to grow as a critical enabler that helps the business learn howto be social. With the expansion of social media across the enterprise, businesses will move along the Formalized and Strategic stages of social business evolution. This sets the stage for social media to operate in alignment with overall business, lines of business, and functional goals.
  14. Social Media Expands into Social BusinessIn just a few years, dedicated employees have spread out beyond marketing and communications to proliferate other key functions and lines of business. At least 13 different business units across the enterprise may deploy social media (see Figure 9). Most notably, customer support (40%) and digital (37%) have become part of the everyday social mix. And while HR has traditionally used social for recruitment, social is also now expanding to be used for employee engagement, development, and retention.The number of social media practitioners is also increasing in areas where social hasn’t infiltrated before. Product Development, Customer Experience (CX)/User Experience (UX), Legal, and Research are among areas that are evolving into social business. As this migration continues, the need for all groups to work together and in line with one overall vision and philosophy will set the stage for a Converged social business.
  15. 2013 Viewed as the Year Where Social Scales and IntegratesWhile priorities such as metrics and training remain top priorities, new initiatives are getting attention, such as scaling social programs, making sense of social data, and integrating with digital and mobile efforts (see Figure 10). This is supported by related objectives to develop internal education and training, up to 43%, and connect employees with social tools, at 23%. Companies can’t scale social media across the enterprise with a coreteam alone. As businesses move toward Formalized, Strategic, and Converged stages, strategists learn that housing social in one group hinders growth, scale, and internal distribution, leaving strategy development and execution in either the core or among external agencies. To truly scale social throughout the enterprise takes empowerment where it becomes a new instrument to achieve business goals.
  16. Social Strategies Focus on Content, Engagement, and SupportContent marketing, engagement, listening, and providing direct customer support became higher social priorities in 2013, with more than half naming content marketing (see Figure 11). Content marketing as a key objective signifies that brands are looking at social media as a means to tell stories, market, and create awareness, preference, and even demand.On the other hand, notable decreases in social commerce, advocacy, and collaboration programs signify a need to prioritize objectives rather than spread investments, time, and resources across too many initiatives.
  17. First and most principled thing to do is a voice of the customer or insight study. How can you decide what to do in social if you don’t understand what your customers do with it?
  18. Outcomes and Measurement Favor Marketing and Customer Experience ObjectivesGiven the deep learnings from five-plus years of experience, it’s little surprise that respondents shared that they were able to see and measure positive outcomes for marketing optimization, customer experience, and brand health social initiatives (see Figure 12). In progress toward a fully Converged social business, customer experience and brand health become critical KPIs as they are a social reflection of a company’s brand promise, reputation, and engagement strategy.
  19. Don’t get stuck in a pilot too long. The toe in the water needs to quickly be followed with all-in. If you always dabble, it will be a failure. Make sure the strategy reflects the resources available. Feel comfortable with uncertainty.
  20. Social Budgets Stayed Constant in 2013In 2013, there was little movement in social budgets from the previous year (see Figure 13). Nearly half of companies’ social budgets are less than $100K or between $100K to $500K. Within those budgets, the highest technology spend was for listening/monitoring platforms, followed closely by analytics and community platforms (see Figure 14).
  21. Be patient because there’s so much to tackle — you can’t do it all at once. Still get started, but always go back to the objectives you’re after. If you lose sight of that, you’ll be wasting time and resources quickly.
  22. Social Media Spending Focuses on Enabling a Social BusinessSocial media investments are distributed across all aspects of social business enablement, with companies mostly planning to increase spending on social media management systems (SMMS) to help scale engagement (see Figure 15). The second area is spending on training and education as organizations seek to educate those outside of the core social media teams on how to integrate social into everyday processes.
  23. Experiment, pilot, and be flexible. Know that your plan will have hiccups. Getting your execs and key stakeholders to be more comfortable with risk is important, along with having a risk mitigation strategy in place.
  24. Social Media Risk Management Needs ImprovementWhile 65% of companies have risk mitigation/crisis management policies in place, only 27% say that employees are properly trained on how to use (or not use) social media(see Figure 16), risking social media violations or crises by employees. And while most companies have internal social media policies, only half have consumer-facing community policies in place that help set expectations (see Figure 17).
  25. Policy, education, and awareness/culture pieces are important to rolling out social successfully in an organization. How do you tell someone who’s never used social that it’s important and needs to be part of their business strategy? Involve as many departments as early on as possible.
  26. Social Media Education Is at Best FairOur survey revealed that employee knowledge of social media usage and company policies is lacking across the board (see Figure 18). This ties back to the “social anarchy” that’s brewing within the organization today. Only 18% of those surveyed believed that employees have a good or very good understanding of social media and organizational policies (see Figure 19).
  27. In the future, there shouldn’t be a ‘social strategy,’ there will just be a strategy for customer experience.
  28. Infuse the client’s voice into everything you do. “Giving them a place to communicate with you and be heard is paramount right now. It’s not cutting edge anymore — it’s just table stakes.”
  29. “You need to be clear on what you want the outcome to be, and then structure it right to support it properly. This requires an investment in people and resources to make sure it’s not a one-time hit. … Only take on as much as you can continue to actively support, and tie it to what’s core to your company for the consumer in your space.”
