What is Advertising?
How is Social Media Different?
Advertising = Talking to the Masses Social Media = Engaging the Masses
Goal Get people talking
Markets have become Conversations "These conversations are going to occur whether you like it or not, O.K.? Well, do you want to be part of that or not? My argument is you absolutely do. You can learn from that. You can improve your reaction time. And you can be a better company by listening and being involved in that conversation."
Where are the Conversations? • Groups • Blog Posts • Newsfeeds • Forums • News
The G.A.F. Principle • • • • Know Your Core Customer Give Them MORE Than What They Want Make it FREE or a bargain MAKE IT EASY
Sell a little bit to a lot of People
Need a lot of eyeballs
