Rather than casually toss around words like engagement and delight - words that are utterly devoid of meaning without context - this presentation (delivered at the Social Capital Conference in Ottawa in July 2014) offers up working definitions for these terms and talks about how to create real value for your organization using social media and other digital marketing tools.

Transcript of Delivering Delight: A new approach to audience engagement through social media (and other things)

  • Delivering delight on both sides of the screen A new approach to audience engagement through social media (and other things)Social Capital Conference 2014 | July 26, 2014
  • Hey there #SoCapOtters, Im Joe!

  • Before we start, a bit of housekeeping Slow it down! Clean it up! Dumb it down! @joeboughner #SoCapOtt
  • Ok, lets DO this! @joeboughner #SoCapOtt
  • @joeboughner #SoCapOtt The secret is to be standing on both sides of the counter at the same time. - Alvah C. Roebuck Co-founder of Sears
  • Right. On to journey maps Said fancily The customer journey map is an oriented graph that describes the journey of a user by representing the different touchpoints that characterize his interaction with the service (servicedesigntools.org) Said simply Its a map that shows every touchpoint you have with your customers / members / user / whatever @joeboughner #SoCapOtt
  • Maps are the new funnels Marketing / sales funnels focused on the organization. Maps focus on the users experience For every single interaction point on a map, you need to ask yourself: What is the goal of this interaction? Are we achieving our goals with these interactions? Do we have the content needed to support the successful completion of these goals? Is there an opportunity to elevate to a higher- value persona? @joeboughner #SoCapOtt
  • Our website Other online Email In store Other offline @joeboughner #SoCapOtt
  • Deceptively simple In reality, each channel is often managed by different teams (especially online v. offline) Marketing metrics zero in on performance by channel; dont make connection to bigger journey Elevation is often ignored @joeboughner #SoCapOtt
  • Well come back to this. But first @joeboughner #SoCapOtt
  • @joeboughner #SoCapOtt
  • @jonnykaldo r @kaldorgrou
  • So what am I getting at? @joeboughner #SoCapOtt
  • What is engagement? The ability to compel a user to take an action that moves them along their journey map in a positive direction Or, even better, elevates them to a higher-value persona @joeboughner #SoCapOtt
  • We now pause for a moderately-meandering anecdote that, if successful, will help connect these dots @joeboughner #SoCapOtt
  • @jonnykaldo r @kaldorgrou
  • So to recap: If engagement is the key to moving people along their user journeys and elevating them to higher- value personas. . . . . . delight is the grease that keeps that wheel spinning @joeboughner #SoCapOtt
  • But wait, isnt this a social media conference? @joeboughner #SoCapOtt
  • Social channels are a key to this mix They allow you to fill in the gaps between larger points on the map They allow you to provide real-time feedback on the success or failure of your other efforts They can even help you put people back on track if they fall off of the journey along the way @joeboughner #SoCapOtt
  • But beware of common traps Dont mistake click-through with engagement Dont artificially-inflate the value of the channel as compared to others social tends to be complementary, not primary Dont force moments of delight but dont get complacent with contentment either @joeboughner #SoCapOtt
