Why #SocialMedia Will Fundamentally Change #Business

Why #SocialMedia Will Fundamentally Change #Business | Bussines Improvement and Social media | Scoop.it

Social media is still new enough that many executives wonder what, if any, long-lasting impact it will have on how business is conducted. Is it worth jumping on the bandwagon? Or conversely, is it wiser not to jump, but to wait until there’s greater clarity on whether social is here to stay?

 

Both these questions have a one-word answer.

 

Jump.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, September 8, 5:10 PM

Social media technologies may be particularly disruptive for business, because they undermine some of the key reasons why companies survive or thrive. One of the key competitive resources for modern organizations is knowledge, and knowledge integration — the ability to combine, exchange and integrate the diverse knowledge of its employees — is a key function in any firm. Getting people to coordinate knowledge and cooperate on a common task is inherently difficult, and the firm has been the best mechanism for enabling the type of collaboration essential to create, store and apply valuable knowledge.

antonio velardo's curator insight, September 9, 9:14 AM

You can wait around to see how social media is evolving business or you can realize that it is and decide to jump in and help mold how it affects your business specifically. 

Stephen Dale's curator insight, September 15, 5:25 AM

I'm not sure I entirely agree with the author in saying that social, media is still relatively new. In these fast-moving times, something that has been around for over 10 years should hardly be considered new. However, the author correctly states that Social media technologies are (still) particularly disruptive for business, and that managers are (still) largely distrustful of technologies that might encourage non-work related activities. For the more informed and forward-thinking oorganizations there is the realisation that social media is the conduit that will encourage knowledge, sharing and knowledge integration. They will ultimately be the survivors in this game.

Innovación Cerrada Vs Innovación Abierta

Innovación Cerrada Vs Innovación Abierta | Bussines Improvement and Social media | Scoop.it
Estrategia de Innovación ¿Cerrada o abierta?

A la hora de hablar de Innovación, ya se ha repetido hasta la saciedad que el primer paso es definir la Estrategia:

- La Estrategia de la Organización 

- La Estrategia de Innovación

de modo que ambas se encuentren alineadas.

Pero no es menos cierto que la forma en que se ha venido planteando, de forma tradicional, la estrategia de negocio presenta una serie de limitaciones:

- La tradicional Estrategia de Crecimiento se está teniendo que enfrentar ante los desafíos de la globalización y un entorno cambiante a gran velocidad.

- Dicho entorno cambiante presenta dos desafíos básicos a la empresa tradicional:

. La necesidad de estar adaptando constantemente sus productos y servicios.

. Hacer compatible lo anterior con una línea estratégica homogénea en la organización.


- El Modelo de las 5 Fuerzas de Porter deja de ser estático y da dos pasos fundamentales:

. Introducir el concepto de Cadena de Valor.

. La posibilidad de generar estrategias en diferentes puntos de la cadena de valor.

- La globalización no desdibuja la competencia dentro de un mismo sector, ya que es precisamente en el mismo sector donde se valoran mejor las 5 fuerzas y se pueden utilizar mejor para predecir comportamientos.

- La irrupción de nuevos fenómenos, no presentes hace tan solo 20 años, y que consiguen la conjunción simultánea de muchas personas pensando en una dirección, o en varias. Las redes sociales y, en general la aplicación de las TIC`s al mundo empresarial.

Estas limitaciones las podemos circunscribir en dos campos a modo de resumen:

- Movimiento y entorno cambiante de forma constante

- Globalización e intervención de muchos actores al mismo tiempo.

La conjunción de ambos lo podemos resumir en un concepto:

- Apertura constante del espacio, tiempo y actores.

 

Siguiendo el hilo conductor nos podemos preguntar:

¿Cómo cambiar el enfoque tradicional de la estrategia?

La pregunta quedaría respondida de esta forma:

- Haciéndolo más global

- Haciéndolo abierto

Así pues, si la estrategia debe ser abierta y en constante evolución, la innovación derivada será también abierta y en constante evolución:

Innovación abierta y en constante evolución.

Los pasos serán:

- Generar Conocimiento mediante la Innovación Abierta.

- Generar Entornos  Abiertos que faciliten lo anterior.

- Llevarlo a todos los campos de la Innovación (Producto, Proceso, Marketing, Gestión, Modelo de Negocio.

Así pues a una Estrategia Abierta corresponde una Innovación Abierta y ambas son necesarios en un entorno cambiante constantemente como el actual.

¿Debe ser la Estrategia fija y cerrada o cambiante y abierta?

Five Trends Shaping the Future of Work

Five Trends Shaping the Future of Work | Bussines Improvement and Social media | Scoop.it

If there’s one thing that we can all agree on it’s that the world of work is changing…quickly. The way we have been working over the past few years is NOT how are we are going to be working in the coming years. Perhaps one of the most important underlying factors driving this change is the coming shift around who drives how work gets done. Traditionally executives would set the rules and pass those down to managers who in turn would pass those down to employees. But as Dan Pink aptly put it, “talented people need organizations less than organizations need talented people.” In other words employees are now starting to drive the decisions and conversations around how work gets done, when it gets done, who it gets done with, what technologies are being used to get it done, etc. The next few years are going to bring about dramatic changes. But why now? What are the key trends that are driving this new future of work? There are five of them - take a look.

Use These 3 'Cs' for More Popular, Engaging #Content

Use These 3 'Cs' for More Popular, Engaging #Content | Bussines Improvement and Social media | Scoop.it

If you’re reading this post, it’s safe to assume you are one of the 92 percent of marketers using some form of content marketing. However, simply signing up to play in the game of content marketing and becoming an all-star are entirely different matters. As a marketer, the best way to learn how to create engaging content is to study the pros. 

 

Two brands currently nailing their content marketing strategies are Salesforce and Sephora. Despite having little in common on the surface, both companies manage to regularly produce popular, engaging content because they share an awareness of three elements — let’s call them the three Cs — that make content marketing efforts successful:

 

Curated content: The ability to leverage “other people’s content” and/or user-generated content (UGC), in addition to their own phenomenal in-house content.Context: They know how to wrap content into a storyline that is relevant for any stage in the sales cycle and integrate it with other solutions to return valuable information to the consumer.Conversion: They build their programs around specific business needs and goals, and are keenly aware of their key performance indicators (KPIs) when creating any piece of content.

The Rise of Purpose-Driven Social #Marketing #infographic via @MarketingHits

The Rise of Purpose-Driven Social #Marketing #infographic via @MarketingHits | Bussines Improvement and Social media | Scoop.it

You’ll often find me in some huge debates online on anything related to politics, religion and capitalism… all the red-hot buttons that most people avoid. It’s why I have personal and branded presences across social media. If you want marketing only, follow the brand. If you want me, follow me… but be careful… you get all of me.+

While I’m an unabashed capitalist, I also have a big heart. I believe we should help one another and not depend on bureaucracies that are inefficient and ineffective. I truly believe the way we change things is by taking personal responsibility and helping to be the catalysts for change. Our agency is always donating time, money and other resources to not just help charities… but to also help businesses that don’t have the resources but have promise. +

It’s no longer good enough to just have a social media presence. Marketing 3.0 will be won by those who become purpose-driven social brands, and to do so, the CMO, CSO, CSR, and Foundation leads must align to bring a cohesive brand story to life. Check out We First’s infographic below with some cold hard facts that make it clear the future of profit is purpose, and the most iconic brands of the future will be those that drive the most meaningful social change. Simon Mainwaring

It’s not just the right thing to do, being purpose-driven is also becoming an expectation of businesses, the motivation for employees and a growing buying habit by consumers. People want their money to go to businesses that are environmentally aware, treat their employees well, and invest time and energy in making the world a better place. +

I’m glad purpose-driven marketing is becoming a growing strategy and topic of conversation – I’ve written before about the frustration I have when people criticize cause marketing (we discussed this with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge… ugh). I’d encourage every company to promote the efforts they’re making to help those around them – this inforgraphic points to why!

Russ Merz, Ph.D.'s curator insight, September 9, 8:39 AM

An interesting blog post about the increasing traction that social activism is getting in social media marketing. Of particular note is the notion that this is becoming a new and powerful means for #brands to articulate positions and execute campaigns on a wide variety of social issues.

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, September 10, 3:33 AM

Brian is SPOT ON here as usual. We've been watching the annual Cone Consumer Activism Survey for years. The number of consumes who want their brands to do the right thing about health, the planet and human rights has grown steadily for years.

Brian is right when he says it isn't enough to make a great widget anymore. Everyone makes a great widget now. Now we buy from those who are "like us" and who we love.

You can't buy love, but you can sure influence it by your deeds and actions. When I started selling bar soap for P&G a lifetime ago (1981) what a marketer SAID was important.

Marketing was about knitting SAYINGS together and repeating them enough to drill them into memory. Now marketing is about what we DO and any dissonance between what we DO and SAY is death.



Karen Dietz's curator insight, September 10, 6:14 PM

Here's a handy infographic that addresses a shift happening in business: being purpose driven and sharing that story.


Being purpose driven means a company focuses on how their products/services not only solve a customer's problem or fulfills a need, but also positively contributes to fixing a social problem or makes a difference to humanity/the planet.


Certainly this infographic shows the consumer desire for this and the opportunity gap for businesses.


But hold on! If you name this activity "purpose driven marketing" you are already following the path to ruin. Why?? Because it will be a marketing project (re: a snow job) instead of the way the company fundamentally does business.


So be like Patagonia and a few other companies who really are purpose driven. There are far more companies today who are just jumping on this bandwagon but not walking their talk.


But if you can tell this kind of powerful story about your business, all kinds of rewards are in store for you.
