The Zero Moment of Truth: How Search and Social Are Changing The Way To Market

"The traditional world of business we know is changing.

 

Well-known brands are struggling to get anywhere in the new economy precisely because they are not getting what it is they must do in order to talk to their customers.

 

A number of global brands, in 2011, suffered humiliating PR disasters because they failed to understand how to use social media.

 

The picture which is emerging is that transparency in communications with potential customers, responsiveness and the personal touch always win over corporate slickness."

 

These the critical priorities to attack: 

 

1. Make SEO part of your company’s DNA: It’s not enough to optimize part of your website or your products or your social media presence. You really need to have optimization as a standard stage of your everyday work. This means that it should be the responsibility of more than one person and everyone in your company should understand what it is they need to do.

 

2. Employ social media as a stimulus platform: Use social media to inexpensively help your company and brand become known. This means establishing a presence on social media platforms.

 

3. Make social media marketing part of your company’s work: Again, social media marketing cannot be the responsibility of just one person. They are never enough. It has to be the work of everybody which means that everyone needs to understand what it is they must do and why. This requires that you make social media marketing training part of your internal processes.

 

4. Create a conversation: Stop thinking about social media marketing as a new format of the traditional broadcast platform and see it for what it is, a stage whereupon you get the chance to foster lasting, relationships with your customers.

Agree Robin. One of the strange results of Google's absolute success is the rapid and growing anti-Google movement. Not anti in a No Logo, Occupy Wall Street way but anti in the, "What else can we do we are desperate and organic takes too long," way. The other thing we are noticing is Social + Mobile can form a powerful Google shadow government capable of carrying companies and brands to good places with almost no Google blessings though only the bravest are opting out of PPC. Thanks as always. Marty

As it turns out, he got it all on LinkedIn. At least that was the foundation of his research. And he subsequently totally won that day. I’ve agreed to connect him to some of my more valuable contacts and I’m definitely going to think of him when I hear from someone (which is often) who needs a vendor that does what he does.

When I realized how much I was willing to give and how much he got out of being that prepared for such a short meeting, I wondered why more people didn’t consider LinkedIn t
