“Behind the shift is a fundamental change in Nike’s view of the role of advertising. No longer are ads primarily meant to grab a person’s attention while they’re trying to do something else — like reading an article. Nike executives say that much of the company’s future advertising spending will take the form of services for consumers, like workout advice, online communities and local sports competitions. “We want to find a way to enhance the experience and services, rather than looking for a way to interrupt people from getting to where they want to go,” said Stefan Olander, global director for brand connections at Nike. “How can we provide a service that the consumer goes, ‘Wow, you really made this easier for me’?” Source: The New York Times

Jim Stengel (CMO): “Bij alle bedrijven die echt doorgebroken zijn, draait marketing om die relatie met hun consumenten. Je moet je open stellen, authentiek zijn. We moeten consumenten verrassen, plezieren, ze aan het lachen maken. Als je kijkt naar je persoonlijke relaties, dan draait het om geven, luisteren, liefde en empathie. Je lacht én maakt fouten. Als bedrijf doen we dat nog te weinig” Source: Molblog

IN10 Connecting people and brands

Brandactivation: interaction as a strategy “Brand activation is the integration of online and/or offline activities, by having the customer experience the brand in an active way and by giving them a part in the brand’s communication message.” Source: Thesis R. Zuidgeest Brandactivation, 2007 “With pure brand activation you do not trouble the consumer, but the brand is brought to life on such a manner that the whole target group wants and will experience the brand on an enduring manner. The consumer comes to the brand and wants to enjoy the essence of the brand.” Source: Mark Woerde, Lemz

How to connect? • Listen, observe & try to understand • Relevancy • Open up & let the customer take control • Create the buzz • Surprise • Add value Give them an enduring brand experience Create strong word of mouth

1. Let’s take them serious! don’t underestimate

Customer in control The move of power from the sender to the receiver. No longer the advertiser or producer determines what the consumer (or customer) receives as messages, now the customer decides if he or she thinks it is interesting enough to check a sender’s message. And even more: the customer (co-)creates the message himself: user generated content

It’s all because of Google…

User generated content 100,000,000 viewers a day 10% of total traffic online Sold after one year for 1.7 billion dollar to Google 8.200.000 articles english: 1.994.000 articles 253 languages 1 million+ contributors 135.000 photos tagged “bread” 3.293 photos uploaded in last minute

The power of word of mouth
