@Steven_InSites The  Personality   of the Conversation Manager #CM48
Word-of-mouth is THE driver of growth The belief
INTEGRATION of WOM in all marketing activities The goal
Your job: MANAGE word-of-mouth
A Conversation Manager
Conversation Activation Brand The philosophy of the Conversation Manager It all starts with brand identification. People only talk about brands they are involved with. As brands, we should reach out to them. Let’s replace our traditional advertising by activation. See advertising as the start of a good conversation. Finally, let’s manage the conversations about our brands. We cannot control them, however perception is based upon them. So let’s be part of it.  Why? This conversation flow determines your future growth. So manage it!
DRIVE CHANGE The Conversation Manager dreams of a reformed organisation where client happiness is the key focus. Making everyone believe that your current customers are the key assets and ambassadors of your organization. He does not want to live isolated within a company.  He reaches out to colleagues and makes them enthusiastic about this vision.
Skills?
Skills? Easy!
Skills? Easy! Communication If you have great communication skills and are good with social media, you have most of the functional assets you need to be a good Conversation Manager. Understand how people feel, how you can help them and talk fluently with them both digital and physical is what it takes.
Skills? Easy! Stories & trends As a good communicator, the Conversation Manager is also a great story teller. Based upon the different stories consumers bring him, he makes his colleagues enthusiastic about consumers. Next to that, he elevates the stories from anecdotes to consumer trends. Detecting new threats and opportunities for his organization on a strategic level.
Skills? Easy! Mediator You can be in the heat of a fight. Understanding consumer frustrations and defending a company policy is not always easy. A good Conversation Manager knows how to pick his fights.
Not an island If your Conversation Manager lives on a lonely island in your organization, he is doomed to fail. After a while, people will see him as a geek. Let’s avoid this and leverage conversation management in your entire organization
Create context for success The Conversation Manager does not want to be isolated or have an isolated team. No, he has a serious impact on the organization. Therefore, he created a context for success. By creating a new culture, one of listening, he tries to bring people closer to the consumer again. The moment everyone cares  about the consumer again, that’s when word-of-mouth becomes part of the company culture.
We are ALL listening All employees should have the possibility to listen and feel consumer feedback. Confronting employees with real consumer conversations is a starting point of change
A policy that works To avoid discussion all the time about joining into conversations on social media, its better to create your own policy. Make sure it gets accepted by legal, HR and other stakeholders. This reduces flexibility on the one hand, but creates a frame in which you can work
24/7  structure You need the tools and the people to enable you to be always available for consumer feedback. As we all need to sleep, travel, eat and have fun, this is not possible as an individual.  The Conversation Manager installs the right people and tools to be always available for consumers
 
REAL CHANGE Only by reaching out to top management, real change can be implemented. Once a company is changing its KPIs and its priorities of investment, that’s when change occurs. The Conversation Manager believes that real change in commercial strategy is needed to cope  with the changes the consumer is going through.  Therefore, he creates a structure for success but needs the top to make it happen.
New KPIs Real change is driven by new KPIs. Once a company is evaluating its people on new success criteria, the behaviour of people will change.
@Steven_InSites #cm48 Buzz volume Sentimeter
If the context for success is reached, the new KPIs installed, the final destination is a 24/7 culture: always ready & available for your consumers. All employees play an active role in this. 24/7 Culture
PERSONALITY The Conversation Manager has quite an ambition, hasn’t he? To succeed in this mission, a great personality makes the difference. The Conversation Manager is an open minded, passionate person. He enjoys making other people happy. He knows how to balance between emotional and rational elements that happen through a process of change. Next to that, he’s a great neworker and has an edge side.
Openness is crucial in this job. Being open to …almost everything. Open towards feedback, negative comments, disbelievers, consumers, other approaches, new technology, … Only with an open mind in the broadest sense of the word, you can survive Open minded
Drive  & Passion Energy, energy, energy! A positive and energitic attitude is what it takes to drive change.
Be happy and be positive. Find happiness in making other people happy. Happy
Conversations are often very emotional. The Conversation manager knows how to deal with this. He applies his top communication skills to take care of them. Next to that, it is important to work with facts & figures to build cases and to create value for the company. He understands how to keep the balance stable. Ratio Emo
Great networker The Conversation Manager is a great networker, both internal and external. Reaching out to people to spread the word is one of his talents. If not, you end up on a deserted island.
PERSONALITY
And remember this...
Word-of-mouth is THE driver of growth
INTEGRATION of WOM in all marketing activities: the goal
Now it’s up to you! MANAGE word-of-mouth
Real chance starts with YOU! “ the man in the mirror”

People who change the world: Conversation Managers

  • 1. @Steven_InSites The Personality of the Conversation Manager #CM48
  • 2. Word-of-mouth is THE driver of growth The belief
  • 3. INTEGRATION of WOM in all marketing activities The goal
  • 4. Your job: MANAGE word-of-mouth
  • 6. Conversation Activation Brand The philosophy of the Conversation Manager It all starts with brand identification. People only talk about brands they are involved with. As brands, we should reach out to them. Let’s replace our traditional advertising by activation. See advertising as the start of a good conversation. Finally, let’s manage the conversations about our brands. We cannot control them, however perception is based upon them. So let’s be part of it. Why? This conversation flow determines your future growth. So manage it!
  • 7. DRIVE CHANGE The Conversation Manager dreams of a reformed organisation where client happiness is the key focus. Making everyone believe that your current customers are the key assets and ambassadors of your organization. He does not want to live isolated within a company. He reaches out to colleagues and makes them enthusiastic about this vision.
  • 10. Skills? Easy! Communication If you have great communication skills and are good with social media, you have most of the functional assets you need to be a good Conversation Manager. Understand how people feel, how you can help them and talk fluently with them both digital and physical is what it takes.
  • 11. Skills? Easy! Stories & trends As a good communicator, the Conversation Manager is also a great story teller. Based upon the different stories consumers bring him, he makes his colleagues enthusiastic about consumers. Next to that, he elevates the stories from anecdotes to consumer trends. Detecting new threats and opportunities for his organization on a strategic level.
  • 12. Skills? Easy! Mediator You can be in the heat of a fight. Understanding consumer frustrations and defending a company policy is not always easy. A good Conversation Manager knows how to pick his fights.
  • 13. Not an island If your Conversation Manager lives on a lonely island in your organization, he is doomed to fail. After a while, people will see him as a geek. Let’s avoid this and leverage conversation management in your entire organization
  • 14. Create context for success The Conversation Manager does not want to be isolated or have an isolated team. No, he has a serious impact on the organization. Therefore, he created a context for success. By creating a new culture, one of listening, he tries to bring people closer to the consumer again. The moment everyone cares about the consumer again, that’s when word-of-mouth becomes part of the company culture.
  • 15. We are ALL listening All employees should have the possibility to listen and feel consumer feedback. Confronting employees with real consumer conversations is a starting point of change
  • 16. A policy that works To avoid discussion all the time about joining into conversations on social media, its better to create your own policy. Make sure it gets accepted by legal, HR and other stakeholders. This reduces flexibility on the one hand, but creates a frame in which you can work
  • 17. 24/7 structure You need the tools and the people to enable you to be always available for consumer feedback. As we all need to sleep, travel, eat and have fun, this is not possible as an individual. The Conversation Manager installs the right people and tools to be always available for consumers
  • 18.  
  • 19. REAL CHANGE Only by reaching out to top management, real change can be implemented. Once a company is changing its KPIs and its priorities of investment, that’s when change occurs. The Conversation Manager believes that real change in commercial strategy is needed to cope with the changes the consumer is going through. Therefore, he creates a structure for success but needs the top to make it happen.
  • 20. New KPIs Real change is driven by new KPIs. Once a company is evaluating its people on new success criteria, the behaviour of people will change.
  • 21. @Steven_InSites #cm48 Buzz volume Sentimeter
  • 22. If the context for success is reached, the new KPIs installed, the final destination is a 24/7 culture: always ready & available for your consumers. All employees play an active role in this. 24/7 Culture

  • 24. Openness is crucial in this job. Being open to …almost everything. Open towards feedback, negative comments, disbelievers, consumers, other approaches, new technology, … Only with an open mind in the broadest sense of the word, you can survive Open minded
