Your Employees Could Be Your Biggest Marketing Asset

If companies empower their employees to be active on social media, and the employees are helping to spread the message of the company, the company will be effectively multiplying their marketing, recruiting, and support teams.

Encouraging or controlling? It seems that this what companies have been hesitating between when it comes to employee participation on social media. Beyond the control-freak dinosaurs, some good-intended companies have reasons to hesitate: employee participation can be hard to encourage and multi-voice communication can be tough. Content offers a framework for employee participation that addresses those concerns. By building and distribution internal topic-based content hubs, organizations can make it easier for employees to participate (sharing is easier than creating) while also providing alignment by curating that content to be on message.

Change Management Meets Social Media

Karl Wabst's curator insight, November 11, 2015 12:40 PM

A lack of communication is one of the major causes of change failure.

 

This idea seems false to those who remember having to choose between only three TV channels and one or two radio stations.


You know the type I mean. We are talking about those old people that are still in charge of many large organizations today. To be fair, this was the case not so long ago in many American communities.


Once you accept that, stop and think about the level of change seen in what we in the US call emerging markets. We do business; hire employees and market to consumers who see our limited choices as an embarrassment of riches.

 

There has been a global revolution in communications over the last quarter century. Now there is a constant proliferation of communications channels. Each channel pushes out rivers of data. It seems that all we do nowadays is communicate!

 

If you limit your understanding of communication to the imparting of news or information to an audience, you may be correct.

 

The traditional type of corporate communication had been a one-way push of instructions out to a passive audience. Today, both employees and customers expect more of a conversation.

 

Both or even multiple parties use a shared channel to talk, listen and effect outcomes. Many experienced managers fail to understand why this is the case. You may not like it, but you will be more effective when you sell how your customers want to buy.

 

When your message is competing with many others each pushed at audiences spread over many channels, you have to market your message so that people listen and connect with your message.

 

You need to repeat your message to reach audiences who listen at different times. To be understood, you should expect to say it in different ways. Consider rephrasing it in ways that matter to as many different, unique audiences as you want to reach.

 

The purpose is not simply to push out a message, but to create a shared vision of the future. A shared vision means that your vision may have to be adapted. Your customers have more choices than ever. They can find someone, from somewhere you would not have considered a threat 5 years ago, and who will make a case that makes sense to them.

 

Organizational change presents as many opportunities as potential problems. In those companies that do manage to push out stories about change initiatives, the problem is that they push information out at the audience.

 

Today, audiences are used to being able to talk back. They are looking to participate in a real way, not to be a passive receptacle expected to hear and obey. They old-school military model of "I say jump" and employees reply "How high, Sir?" are long gone.

 

Your employees have more effect on daily operations than ever. They are the ones talking to and hearing from customers every day. They have a presence on social media. They are talking about your company. Help them understand so they can advocate or at least, not misinform their audiences.

 

If management has made even marginally effective hiring decisions, your employees are bound to have some good ideas. Stop talking at them. Listen to them. Communicate. Communicate. After you do that, you guessed it, communicate. If the conversation is not bi-directional, you have already failed.

 

If we believe the oft-quoted 70% failure rate of change initiatives, you must be in the majority. I learned to differentiate myself by succeeding where many fail. Try it. You will like it! So will your employees and customers.

It’s a morbid state of the workforce and we need to act.

donhornsby's curator insight, November 2, 2015 5:33 PM

(From the article): They treat employees like consumers – The changing workforce requires us to think differently. Consumers have a louder voice, access to more information, and have several options – like employees today.  Employees don’t just buy a product (job), they associate with a brand (company). Think of how much we invest in prospective and current customers trying to find them, understand them better, retain them and communicate specifically to them. Find what your company does well for customers and use that approach with employees.

Toutes les études sur la motivation et le bonheur au travail en Europe occidentale vont dans la même direction et pointent des chiffres catastrophiques. La motivation au travail est une clef indispensable au succès à long-terme d'une entreprise. Ceux qui l'ont compris placent le développement et le bien-être de leurs employés au centre de leurs préoccupations. 
Un premier pas peut être l'utilisation du #SISEM en entreprise pour déterminer les moteurs de motivation de chacun et nourrir l'énergie et l'engagement au niveau des individus et des équipes. Intéressé? Contactez-moi. www.envol.pascalehotterbeex.com

3 Crucial Principles of Storytelling from Kevin Spacey + House Of Cards | Newscred

3 Crucial Principles of Storytelling from Kevin Spacey + House Of Cards | Newscred | L&D | Scoop.it

It is no secret that storytelling has become the pinnacle practice of 2015. So what can content marketers learn from some of the best stories going right now? Looking ahead to Friday and a new “House of Cards“ release on Netflix, I began to think about the parallels between content marketing and traditional media (in this case television).

In Kevin Spacey’s keynote from Content Marketing World 2014, he told a half hour story about the importance of storytelling using his own career as a vehicle and the stories of the actors he’s played along the way as the gasoline. I distinctly remember this being one of the most #meta speeches I’ve ever heard.So what advice does Francis Underwood have to dish on storytelling? Spacey recommends that before you even begin, it’s important to ask yourself, “What story do you want to tell?” He suggests that everything will fall in line “if you start with what the result is going to be.” Once you get over the initial hurdle of determining what story you want to tell, you have to examine what elements will make this story truly engaging. Spacey goes on to propose three pillars that must be present in every good story....

I scooped this article because, in education, new programs and initiatives are often introduced but the emphasis and excitement that corresponds gradually wanes. How do we keep progress towards our goals in the forefront of what we do? This article makes me believe that we must continually visit progress and report how much has been accomplished (rather than how much is left). This subtle difference appears to have significant psychological considerations regarding to perceptions.
