If its nobodys job, its not going to get done. You need a ZMOT evangelist, in on every meeting and empowered to do the job. Find Your Zero Moments: Find out exactly how people search for your product. Where do they go? Who do they trust to give them information?

Answer the Questions People Are Asking: Theres no point meeting people at ZMOT if youre not giving them the kind of information they want, as and when they want it. Optimize for ZMOT: Show up more when it counts by making your content super-relevant, and being where you need to be (Lecinski makes the point that having a great mobile presence is a big part of this). Be Fast: Know when somethings making people search for your product, and do something quick to capitalize on it. Speed beats perfection. Dont Forget Video: SISOMO rules. Do it. Jump In! Emotion leads to action. Make something happen! Strategic Marketing Summit Chennai Sept 24, 2011 S.Balu 9 The many ways to market?

14 Content Some questions to ask What is the full content portfolio Do we have the right portfolio of content that matters What are the content shifts The same or different as those that drive awareness, consideration or purchase How is the content shifting through the sales cycle Touch point strategies by target type, region, product segment etc Empower the sales professionals Strategic Marketing Summit Chennai Sept 24, 2011 S.Balu

15 Content Creating engaging environments Unify and Personalize consumer interaction across all channels Move from tracking metrics (like hits, traffic) to business metrics Use marketing to strategically inform and catalyze other business functions Strategic Marketing Summit Chennai Sept 24, 2011 S.Balu 16 Some trends Consumers do not consume just one piece of

content but an entire portfolio through one medium We must therefore build a portfolio that pushes to more richer content like customer examples, ROI, integration, pricing, technical specifications, benefits etc Do not ignore the content journey the sales force needs a clear content delivery strategy Strategic Marketing Summit Chennai Sept 24, 2011 S.Balu 17 Social Marketing Strategic Marketing Summit Chennai

Sept 24, 2011 S.Balu 18 Marketing Mix Trends in the Social Media In the traditional Marketing Mix, we have the 4 Ps : Product Price Placement Position Theres no doubt that product, price, placement and promotion are still key concerns. But its also important to recognize that social media is a different world where traditional placement and promotion do not apply. When using social media, which doesnt replace traditional marketing but adds to it as a new outlet, four new Ps become important. Social media marketing is more subtle, less direct, more about being there than being inyour-face visible. In fact, aggressive promotion is not only

unwelcome on social media sites; it is resented and can damage your image rather than promoting your products. Strategic Marketing Summit Chennai Sept 24, 2011 S.Balu 19 The new 4 Ps in Social Media Marketing Social Media Marketing Realities: Good News : Little or no cost; No Barrier to Entry (could be bad also) Bad News: Takes Time and Attention someone needs to be vigilant around sites, post comments, blogs, webcasts, Tweets etc. No Barrier also poses risk as anyone can post negative and/or damaging comments about your product, services or brand.

Paradigm shift to the 4 new Ps which can be best characterized as: You need to PARTICIPATE and be engaged You need to be there PROXIMITY Make your pitch only when asked PERMISSION Beware of the PERCEPTION that is created of your own or others actions Strategic Marketing Summit Chennai Sept 24, 2011 S.Balu 20 Adaptive Brand Marketing We live in a Whatever, Whenever, Wherever always ON world Today's brand marketing organizations are not equipped to handle this new world.

So, we must Remain Relevant - Adaptive Brand Marketing Encourage Rapid Response Align Consumer and Brand Needs Maximize Return on Brand Equity Core Elements are : Embrace an expanded role for consumer intelligence Focus on strategic brand platforms Empowering a networked organization The opportunity for an entire organization to reorient itself around its marketing organization and deeply engage itself in its interactive toolkit The profound change social media presents for all customer relations; the new need for openness, agility, and hypersociality Strategic Marketing Summit Chennai Sept 24, 2011 S.Balu 21

Sept 24, 2011 S.Balu 26 QR Codes QR Quick response Codes Initially invented as a simple bar code in the automotive industry to very quickly identify, track and deliver auto components within a manufacturing line Have you seen them? Strategic Marketing Summit Chennai Sept 24, 2011 S.Balu 27

Useful Advertising QR Codes A quintessential Internet-age idea Something of a fig leaf for intrusive advertisers. Its the notion that ads that are more informative, better tailored, finely targeted and context-aware actually provide a service to the consumer and should therefore be welcomed as liberators But are they simply more intrusive and annoying ? Trends that are popularized by public excitement like Facebook. Then there are trends that come about because marketers think the public ought to be excited by the thought of being marketed to in amazing new ways (say, Facebook ads). QR codes have their use, and theyll find their niche. In the meantime, marketers will need to continue the premise that a truly effective ad is one that makes me want to buy the product and not just read another ad. The Consumer must decide Strategic Marketing Summit Chennai Sept 24, 2011

competition etc Benchmark Dynamic Interaction and Emotional Engagement need to be measured for effectiveness Learn Continually learn what the customer wants; customers often can be your product designers/ content managers Consumer needs and aspirations become hierarchial and complex over time More or Faster is not always good; They may seek greater value in terms of simplicity, time, fulfillment, emotional reward, ease of purchase Empathize Empathy can change all the variables - industries, objectives, offerings - and still work the process from the eyes of the target audience. Empathy is a function of understanding, and understanding a function of experience. All the best marketing will not replace insensitive Customer Service. Commenting on customer posts, blogs, comments adds great value in humanizing the business transaction. It also intelligently addresses consumer needs/aspirations within a group setting.

Engage There is no substitute for emotional engagement. Self-affirmation, social acceptance, pride of purchase are all universal and provide value to branding, marketing and related messaging. Acceptance, Respect and Love change little from cultures and time. This engagement into product and service can add simplicity while building loyalty.
