WHAT EXACTLY ARE SOCIAL MEDIA?

We Are Social

@wearesocialsg • 4
Social media are internet-powered
platforms that make it easy for
individuals, groups of people, and
organisations to converse and
participate with one another in a
wide variety of social activities.

The concept of social media has been around for
thousands of years – even early cavemen wrote on
each other’s walls. However, the internet has scaled
social media to a whole new level. Nearly 2 billion
people around the world use social networks every
month, and that number is still increasing by
hundreds of thousands of people every day.

It’s not just the number of users that’s impressive,
though. Facebook reports that more than half its users
sign in every day, while ComScore data indicates
that, worldwide, people spend more than 10 hours
each month using the top social channels. Social
media have become so popular that they are now
responsible for more than 1 in every 6 minutes spent on
the internet – more than any other kind of activity.

Social media are a global phenomenon too: Facebook
has users in more than 200 countries, with India,
Indonesia, Brazil and Mexico all in the top 5. China’s
QZone platform claims more than 630 million active
users alone. What’s more, with interest in social media
driving internet adoption in many parts of the
developing world, growth in the use of social
platforms will continue for the foreseeable future.

DEBUNKING SOME SOCIAL MEDIA MYTHS

We Are Social

@wearesocialsg • 13
“SOCIAL MEDIA WILL REPLACE ADVERTISING”
This assertion continues to surface, even in
leading business literature, but it’s unlikely
that social media will ‘replace’ anything.
Rather, social media are simply one more –
albeit very powerful – addition to the mix of
comms channels at the marketer’s disposal.
We Are Social

@wearesocialsg • 14
$0
“SOCIAL MEDIA ARE FREE”
This is another common misconception. The
media space itself may be considerably
cheaper than that in newspapers or on TV, but
the time involved in creating effective content
and interacting with audiences means social
channels still require financial investment.
We Are Social

@wearesocialsg • 15
“MARKETING HAS NO PLACE IN SOCIAL MEDIA”
Marketers that try to shoe-horn interruptive
advertising approaches into social channels
may believe this to be so, but brands that
strive to add value to their audiences’ world
will find that their activities are actually very
welcome, and successful, in social media.
We Are Social

@wearesocialsg • 16
SO HOW CAN BRANDS
HARNESS SOCIAL MEDIA?

We Are Social

@wearesocialsg • 17
If marketers are to seize the opportunities offered by
social media, they must first decide what they will use
them for. Will they simply be another advertising
channel? Is there an opportunity to use social media to
deliver real-time customer service? Could the brand
generate revenue directly through social channels? Only
once these questions have been answered should
marketers start to plan specific social media activities.

THE

10
‘COMMENDMENTS’

We Are Social

@wearesocialsg • 20
1: FOCUS ON PEOPLE, NOT TECHNOLOGY
Social media marketing is not a digital discipline – it’s a human
discipline that is powered by digital channels. Platforms like
Facebook, Twitter, and Sina Weibo have all achieved success by
satisfying our desire to connect and interact with other people,
but no matter how impressive it is, the technology is only ever a
means to an end. In order for brands to ensure lasting relevance
and engagement in social media, it’s critical that marketers
build social media strategies around people’s motivations, not
the platforms’ technology.
We Are Social

@wearesocialsg • 21
2: BUILD CONVERSATIONS, NOT CAMPAIGNS
Broadcast advertising works like a pick-up line: it’s a great way
to make an introduction and capture people’s interest. However,
it’s very difficult to build a long-term relationship with pick-up
lines alone. Social media allow marketers to engage audiences
beyond introductions and deliver more meaningful exchanges of
value. These exchanges are often smaller and less spectacular
than traditional advertising, but – just like in a good marriage –
these smaller interactions add up over time to form the basis of a
much deeper relationship.
We Are Social

@wearesocialsg • 22
“

Content is not king. If I sent you to a desert
island and gave you the choice of taking
your friends or your movies, you'd choose
your friends – if you chose the movies, we'd
call you a sociopath. Conversation is king.
Content is just something to talk about.
~ Cory Doctorow

We Are Social

”

@wearesocialsg • 23
3: CONTENT IS A MEANS, NOT AN END
Social media content is less about creating a stand-alone
spectacle, and more about inspiring and fueling on-going
conversations. Because of this, content can take on different
forms and roles: activities like asking questions, posting simple
pictures, or even sharing links to third-party content can all help
to engage an audience. However, it’s critical that this content all
contributes towards a broader ‘conversation agenda’, and
marketers need to give special attention to sequencing different
activities to ensure conversations evolve as desired.
We Are Social

@wearesocialsg • 24
4: ADD VALUE TO THE AUDIENCE’S LIFE
Brands must compete with a variety of compelling content in
social media: updates from family and friends, news, games,
and entertainment. As a result, the interruptive ‘broadcast’
approach doesn’t work; instead, brands must consistently deliver
activities that engage the audience – activities that people will
seek out and choose to share with others. Brands need to add
real value to their audiences’ lives, by going beyond product
attributes to understand what really matters to people, and
finding relevant ways to bring these benefits to life.
We Are Social

@wearesocialsg • 25
5: LISTENING IS THE NEW SHOUTING
People use social networks to talk about the things that matter to
them. In doing so, they share a wealth of information: their
interests, their habits, their moods; even their brand preferences.
This publicly available information is often worth just as much as
traditional market research. Critically, it can help marketers to
understand which platforms their audiences use, and why. This
understanding can inform a powerful, multi-channel strategy
that engages people in different ways at different times.
We Are Social

@wearesocialsg • 26
6: SPREAD THE WORD
It’s unlikely that people will accidentally stumble upon a brand’s
social media presence, so raising awareness of social media
activities is a key part of success. Advertising is a perfectly
legitimate way of getting the word out to the intended audience,
but it’s vital that it demonstrates how the brand’s social media
activities will add value to the intended audience’s life. Simply
inviting people to ‘Like’ a page is rarely enough; people need to
understand what they’ll get in return for their time and effort.
We Are Social

@wearesocialsg • 27
7: ALWAYS BE PREPARED
Social media provide frequent reminders that you can’t please
all of the people all of the time. Most brands will need to deal
with discontent at some point or other, so marketers should
prepare for such situations in advance. Similarly, brands should
allow for nice surprises too, and have plans in place to capitalise
on social serendipity and unexpected opportunities. A clear ‘3As
Process’ – alert, assess, act – can help marketers prepare for
these situations, ensuring the right people can deliver the right
responses in the right places at the right times.
We Are Social

@wearesocialsg • 28
8: MEASURE YOUR PROGRESS
Social media marketing is a business investment, and marketers
must be able to demonstrate how it adds value to the brand’s
bottom line. Social media ROI is not restricted to increasing sales
though; improving the frequency of referrals, reducing the cost
of customer service, and helping to track competitor activity are
all ways in which social can contribute to a brand’s overall
success. Measuring ROI needn’t be complicated either; simple
before-and-after measurements of metrics tied to objectives can
reveal whether activities are delivering on expectations.
We Are Social

@wearesocialsg • 29
9: OPTIMISE AS YOU GO
Unlike the ‘ready, aim, fire’ paradigm of broadcast media, social
media offer marketers the opportunity to stop, start, or change
elements of their activities in real-time, depending on the
audience’s response (or lack thereof). As a result, marketers can
adopt a ‘test-and-learn’ approach, trialling different approaches
and adapting their strategy based on their results.
Consequently, regular reporting should play a key part in any
social media strategy.

“

You can’t hurry love,
no, you just have to wait;
love don’t come easy,
it’s a game of give and take.
~ The Supremes (1966)

We Are Social

@wearesocialsg • 31
10: BE IN IT FOR THE LONG TERM
Meaningful relationships take time to build, and we need to take
things at a pace the audience is comfortable with. Sometimes
they will initiate the conversation, but other times, it may take
months to build the desired momentum. Either way, brands can’t
achieve lasting success in social media by dipping in and out;
they must adopt a long-term, committed approach. This includes
building a dedicated social team – whether internally, or with a
partner agency – that can take advantage of every social
opportunity, however unexpected, tactical or transitory.

Nearly 2 billion people around the world use social networks every month, and that number is still increasing by hundreds of thousands of people every day. We Are Social @wearesocialsg • 6

Facebook reports that more than half its users sign in every day, while ComScore data indicates that, worldwide, people spend more than 10 hours each month using the top social channels. Social media have become so popular that they are now responsible for more than 1 in every 6 minutes spent on the internet – more than any other kind of activity.

  • 13. DEBUNKING SOME SOCIAL MEDIA MYTHS We Are Social @wearesocialsg • 13
  • 14. “SOCIAL MEDIA WILL REPLACE ADVERTISING” This assertion continues to surface, even in leading business literature, but it’s unlikely that social media will ‘replace’ anything. Rather, social media are simply one more – albeit very powerful – addition to the mix of comms channels at the marketer’s disposal. We Are Social @wearesocialsg • 14
  • 15. $0 “SOCIAL MEDIA ARE FREE” This is another common misconception. The media space itself may be considerably cheaper than that in newspapers or on TV, but the time involved in creating effective content and interacting with audiences means social channels still require financial investment. We Are Social @wearesocialsg • 15
  • 16. “MARKETING HAS NO PLACE IN SOCIAL MEDIA” Marketers that try to shoe-horn interruptive advertising approaches into social channels may believe this to be so, but brands that strive to add value to their audiences’ world will find that their activities are actually very welcome, and successful, in social media. We Are Social @wearesocialsg • 16
  • 17. SO HOW CAN BRANDS HARNESS SOCIAL MEDIA? We Are Social @wearesocialsg • 17
  • 18. If marketers are to seize the opportunities offered by social media, they must first decide what they will use them for. Will they simply be another advertising channel? Is there an opportunity to use social media to deliver real-time customer service? Could the brand generate revenue directly through social channels? Only once these questions have been answered should marketers start to plan specific social media activities. We Are Social @wearesocialsg • 18

  • 21. 1: FOCUS ON PEOPLE, NOT TECHNOLOGY Social media marketing is not a digital discipline – it’s a human discipline that is powered by digital channels. Platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Sina Weibo have all achieved success by satisfying our desire to connect and interact with other people, but no matter how impressive it is, the technology is only ever a means to an end. In order for brands to ensure lasting relevance and engagement in social media, it’s critical that marketers build social media strategies around people’s motivations, not the platforms’ technology. We Are Social @wearesocialsg • 21
  • 22. 2: BUILD CONVERSATIONS, NOT CAMPAIGNS Broadcast advertising works like a pick-up line: it’s a great way to make an introduction and capture people’s interest. However, it’s very difficult to build a long-term relationship with pick-up lines alone. Social media allow marketers to engage audiences beyond introductions and deliver more meaningful exchanges of value. These exchanges are often smaller and less spectacular than traditional advertising, but – just like in a good marriage – these smaller interactions add up over time to form the basis of a much deeper relationship. We Are Social @wearesocialsg • 22
  • 23. “ Content is not king. If I sent you to a desert island and gave you the choice of taking your friends or your movies, you'd choose your friends – if you chose the movies, we'd call you a sociopath. Conversation is king. Content is just something to talk about. ~ Cory Doctorow We Are Social ” @wearesocialsg • 23
  • 24. 3: CONTENT IS A MEANS, NOT AN END Social media content is less about creating a stand-alone spectacle, and more about inspiring and fueling on-going conversations. Because of this, content can take on different forms and roles: activities like asking questions, posting simple pictures, or even sharing links to third-party content can all help to engage an audience. However, it’s critical that this content all contributes towards a broader ‘conversation agenda’, and marketers need to give special attention to sequencing different activities to ensure conversations evolve as desired. We Are Social @wearesocialsg • 24
  • 25. 4: ADD VALUE TO THE AUDIENCE’S LIFE Brands must compete with a variety of compelling content in social media: updates from family and friends, news, games, and entertainment. As a result, the interruptive ‘broadcast’ approach doesn’t work; instead, brands must consistently deliver activities that engage the audience – activities that people will seek out and choose to share with others. Brands need to add real value to their audiences’ lives, by going beyond product attributes to understand what really matters to people, and finding relevant ways to bring these benefits to life. We Are Social @wearesocialsg • 25
  • 26. 5: LISTENING IS THE NEW SHOUTING People use social networks to talk about the things that matter to them. In doing so, they share a wealth of information: their interests, their habits, their moods; even their brand preferences. This publicly available information is often worth just as much as traditional market research. Critically, it can help marketers to understand which platforms their audiences use, and why. This understanding can inform a powerful, multi-channel strategy that engages people in different ways at different times. We Are Social @wearesocialsg • 26
  • 27. 6: SPREAD THE WORD It’s unlikely that people will accidentally stumble upon a brand’s social media presence, so raising awareness of social media activities is a key part of success. Advertising is a perfectly legitimate way of getting the word out to the intended audience, but it’s vital that it demonstrates how the brand’s social media activities will add value to the intended audience’s life. Simply inviting people to ‘Like’ a page is rarely enough; people need to understand what they’ll get in return for their time and effort. We Are Social @wearesocialsg • 27
  • 28. 7: ALWAYS BE PREPARED Social media provide frequent reminders that you can’t please all of the people all of the time. Most brands will need to deal with discontent at some point or other, so marketers should prepare for such situations in advance. Similarly, brands should allow for nice surprises too, and have plans in place to capitalise on social serendipity and unexpected opportunities. A clear ‘3As Process’ – alert, assess, act – can help marketers prepare for these situations, ensuring the right people can deliver the right responses in the right places at the right times. We Are Social @wearesocialsg • 28
  • 29. 8: MEASURE YOUR PROGRESS Social media marketing is a business investment, and marketers must be able to demonstrate how it adds value to the brand’s bottom line. Social media ROI is not restricted to increasing sales though; improving the frequency of referrals, reducing the cost of customer service, and helping to track competitor activity are all ways in which social can contribute to a brand’s overall success. Measuring ROI needn’t be complicated either; simple before-and-after measurements of metrics tied to objectives can reveal whether activities are delivering on expectations. We Are Social @wearesocialsg • 29
  • 30. 9: OPTIMISE AS YOU GO Unlike the ‘ready, aim, fire’ paradigm of broadcast media, social media offer marketers the opportunity to stop, start, or change elements of their activities in real-time, depending on the audience’s response (or lack thereof). As a result, marketers can adopt a ‘test-and-learn’ approach, trialling different approaches and adapting their strategy based on their results. Consequently, regular reporting should play a key part in any social media strategy. We Are Social @wearesocialsg • 30
  • 31. “ You can’t hurry love, no, you just have to wait; love don’t come easy, it’s a game of give and take. ~ The Supremes (1966) We Are Social @wearesocialsg • 31
  • 32. 10: BE IN IT FOR THE LONG TERM Meaningful relationships take time to build, and we need to take things at a pace the audience is comfortable with. Sometimes they will initiate the conversation, but other times, it may take months to build the desired momentum. Either way, brands can’t achieve lasting success in social media by dipping in and out; they must adopt a long-term, committed approach. This includes building a dedicated social team – whether internally, or with a partner agency – that can take advantage of every social opportunity, however unexpected, tactical or transitory.
