Trends 2012, social customer attacks
Publicado por gpach10
So far most of December statistics show a higher growth of digital communications, marketing and PR partner to establish more ties with the new social customer. Clearly the most innovative strategy will generate a better return on investment, however, take note that this implies more careful in the generation of content marketing for social channels. While more and more global citizens have a personal social window, they no longer expect just a good contest or a novel gift, to follow or become a fan of your business. Look for something more, an added value. Sure, marketing content, as some call it the content of value. However, it is actually linked to the marketing content is what the client looks for social. The trend in the Northern Hemisphere indicates that consumers /customers and not only want to be well informed, have now moved to a second level, much more demanding, knowing that they have in their hands a powerful weapon-the mobile phone or a tablet- with which they can attack the company if it does not act in an appropriate manner, ie with real and transparent, appropriate treatment, added to that worry, not only for today but for future product /service they offer.
Well, the strategies generated by some companies, in Europe, as in the U.S. are aimed at creating a more durable bond with their customers /consumers. The idea is to captivate you, stay and refer. The redirection of the strategy will focus also on proper customer service. Being a smart business, involves creating a permanent bond with the audience, no matter the diversity that exists within your network. Here the proper analysis of the “Insights” left by the followers or fans in the social window will be the best reference to construct a message that lasts over time, and that drives a mass. Not only that, business and social channel administrator must have the ability to transform that data obtained on behalf of the company and society.
The move to become a social business involves establishing an appropriate digital communication (PR), a good promotion (Marketing), innovation in product /service (crowdsource / co-creation) and of course excellent customer service (Social CRM).
The mobility of business is another major factor in the growth of the firm (reputation, branding) by 2012, be where your audience is, it means fight on the same land where they live, taking into account everything mentioned above. Who have, today, a Smartphone for simplicity and speed? Therefore, the business must involve the construction of platforms adapted to these requirements. Adapting a site to a mobile format, it is imperative, as well as thinking about creating or sponsoring an application (APP) that generates value to the customer / consumer. Of course this implies a cost a bit high for countries like Peru. However, the trend is headed in that direction. Telephone operating companies are already generating alliances with mobile and tablet manufacturers for mass use. For in thus aim to create or put your site to mobile format or launch a APP is no longer crazy.
However, we must take into account the following. The biggest barrier that occurs worldwide and, perhaps, with greater incidence in Latam, is that managers still refuse to hold an honest and transparent with their audiences, in social media. Most of the work aimed at marketing, promote or achieve sell. This must change, try to go further. Accepting our weaknesses and enhance digital communication transparent, audiences will feel they can trust in your business. It’s a simple psychological attitude, people are sick of them lied, people want honesty in the message and actions.
Resisting a free expression by the social client will be a major drawback for any company. The roadmap for business in 2012 should go toward cooperation, listening, enriching living experience the customer /consumer who probably next year attack force.
