 WHY

 HOW
Social Technologies Today
Untapped Potential
http://bit.ly/GCPaZB
The power lies in the creation of self-organised
     communities of like-minded people
...We grew up with the Internet and on the Internet. This is whatWe, the us
                                                                         makes
different; this is what makes the crucial, although surprising from your point of
                                                                       Web Kids
view, difference: we do not ‘surf’ and the internet to us is not a ‘place’ or
‘virtual space’. The Internet to us is not something external to reality but a part
of it: an invisible yet constantly present layer intertwined with the physical
environment. We do not use the Internet, we live on the Internet and along
it. If we were to tell our bildnungsroman to you, the analog, we could say there
was a natural Internet aspect to every single experience that has shaped us.
We made friends and enemies online, we prepared cribs for tests online, we
planned parties and studying sessions online, we fell in love and broke up
online. The Web to us is not a technology which we had to learn and which we
managed to get a grip of. The Web is a process, happening continuously and
continuously transforming before our eyes; with us and through us.
Technologies appear and then dissolve in the peripheries, websites are built,
they bloom and then pass away, but the Web continues, because we are the
Web; we, communicating with one another in a way that comes naturally to
us, more intense and more efficient than ever before in the history of
mankind...

Tell people
   so they can

The Social Era and Your Business

  • 1. The Social Era and Your Business Workshop (sort of) 28 November, 2012 Eric Swain Client Services Director Equinet Media
  • 6. The power lies in the creation of self-organised communities of like-minded people
  • 7. ...We grew up with the Internet and on the Internet. This is whatWe, the us makes different; this is what makes the crucial, although surprising from your point of Web Kids view, difference: we do not ‘surf’ and the internet to us is not a ‘place’ or ‘virtual space’. The Internet to us is not something external to reality but a part of it: an invisible yet constantly present layer intertwined with the physical environment. We do not use the Internet, we live on the Internet and along it. If we were to tell our bildnungsroman to you, the analog, we could say there was a natural Internet aspect to every single experience that has shaped us. We made friends and enemies online, we prepared cribs for tests online, we planned parties and studying sessions online, we fell in love and broke up online. The Web to us is not a technology which we had to learn and which we managed to get a grip of. The Web is a process, happening continuously and continuously transforming before our eyes; with us and through us. Technologies appear and then dissolve in the peripheries, websites are built, they bloom and then pass away, but the Web continues, because we are the Web; we, communicating with one another in a way that comes naturally to us, more intense and more efficient than ever before in the history of mankind... http://bit.ly/FQlJND

  4. Performance-oriented cultures possess statistically better financial growth, with high employee involvement, strong internal communication, and an acceptance of a healthy level of risk-taking in order to achieve new levels of innovation.Social Media is less about strategy, messaging, and marketing than about culture, conversations, change management
  5. Culture eats strategy for lunch“if we get the culture right, then everything else, including the customer service, will fall into place” – Tony Hsieh, CEO
  6. If it starts with “culture” it also starts with “product”
  7. Remarkable marketing is the art of building things worth noticing right into your product or service. Not just slapping on the marketing function as a last-minute add-on, but also understanding from the outset that if your offering itself isn't remarkable, then it's invisible -- no matter how much you spend on well-crafted advertising.
  8. Myth #1: Most consumers want to have relationships with your brand.Actually, they don't. Only 23% of the consumers in our study said they have a relationship with a brand. In the typical consumer's view of the world, relationships are reserved for friends, family and colleagues. That's why, when you ask the 77% of consumers who don't have relationships with brands to explain why, you get comments like "It's just a brand, not a member of my family." (What consumers really want when they interact with brands online is to get discounts).How should you market differently?First, understand which of your consumers are in the 23% and which are in the 77%. Who wants a relationship and who doesn't? Then, apply different expectations to those two groups and market differently to them. Stop bombarding consumers who don't want a relationship with your attempts to build one through endless emails or complex loyalty programs. Those efforts will be low ROI. Chances are there are higher returns to be had elsewhere in your marketing mix.Myth #2: Interactions build relationships.No, they don't. Shared values build relationships. A shared value is a belief that both the brand and consumer have about a brand's higher purpose or broad philosophy. For example, Pedigree Dog Food's shared value is a belief that every dog deserves a loving home. Southwest Airlines' shared value revolves around the democratization of air travel.Of the consumers in our study who said they have a brand relationship, 64% cited shared values as the primary reason. That's far and away the largest driver. Meanwhile, only 13% cited frequent interactions with the brand as a reason for having a relationship.How should you market differently?Many brands have a demonstrable higher purpose baked into their missions, whether it's Patagonia's commitment to the environment or Harley Davidson's goal "to fulfill dreams through the experience of motorcycling." These feel authentic to consumers, and so provide a credible basis for shared values and relationship-building. To build relationships, start by clearly communicating your brand's philosophy or higher purpose.Myth #3: The more interaction the better.Wrong. There's no correlation between interactions with a customer and the likelihood that he or she will be "sticky" (go through with an intended purchase, purchase again, and recommend). Yet, most marketers behave as if there is a continuous linear relationship between the number of interactions and share of wallet. That's why, as the Wall Street Journal recently reported, you see well-established retailers like Neiman-Marcus, Land's End and Toys R Us sending customers over 300 emails annually.In reality, that linear relationship flattens much more quickly than most marketers think; soon, helpful interactions become an overwhelming torrent. Without realizing it, many marketers are only adding to the information bombardment consumers feel as they shop a category, reducing stickiness rather than enhancing it. (For more on consumers' cognitive overload, see the sidebar "Too Much Information" in our recent HBR article.How should you market differently?Instead of relentlessly demanding more consumer attention, treat the attention you do win as precious. Then ask yourself a simple question of any new marketing efforts: is this campaign/email/microsite/print ad/etc. going to reduce the cognitive overload consumers feel as they shop my category? If the answer is "no" or "not sure," go back to the drawing board. When it comes to interacting with your customers, more isn't better.

  12. B2B has a smaller potential customer base, a higher average price point, and a customer decision funnel that is more influenced by word of mouth and reputation.B2B social media tactics vary from B2C, in that they are typically rooted in consumer education and thought leadership, and thus require deeper layers of interactionB2B actually has an advantage with social media, because most of their business is centered around longer term relationships between suppliers and consultants and clients, and there are so many needs and touchpoints for information sharing that don’t exist as much in the B2C cycle.One distinct characteristic of B2B businesses is that their work centres around helping people do their jobs better somehow. It’s less about lifestyle and personal interests, and more about how the business ecosystem improves.Content – useful, helpful, informativeRaise knowledge of customersDemonstrate expertise – that we are qualified to help themShare, distribute, and create easier and faster with socialNetwork – is everything in B2BWho you know / Who they know - LinkedInKnowledge base – filter and segment list based on knowledge baseRelationships - Almighty in B2BEstablish Trust (so important) thru additional touch points – online not golf course or dinnerContext – from information standpoint - Supporting stuff that helps the sale along, shortens the cycle, secures the dealBridge gaps between and around sales – funnel movement and retention helpStory – How tell our business storyLinkedIn, Blog, Step outside the tools –what do they help you DO not how they lookHelp create relationship framework

  16. Is social media ROI attainable? Of course, but you have to set up your social programs from the outset in such a way that the data is available and unblemished. The best way to do that is to define and measure specific customer behaviors.If you want to neatly measure social media ROI, give your customers and fans a clear assignment with tracked clicks and post-click landing pages and forms.why did we think this was about customer acquisition, when it’s clearly about loyalty and retention?
