  16. 17. Let’s Look at the issues faced currently <ul><li>How do we stand out from the rest of the Ben & Jerry’s pages – 500 link backs to the word Ben & Jerry or Ben & Jerry’s </li></ul><ul><li>There aren’t any discussions going on now…why? </li></ul><ul><li>How do we interact the right way with consumers and fans? </li></ul><ul><li>How do we revive the FB Group we have right now </li></ul>
  17. 18. Standing Out <ul><li>The vibrancy of a Facebook community is connected greatly to the size of the group and to the amount of activity within it </li></ul><ul><li>Maintaining one single group/fan page over several country-based groups will reduce conversation and population fragmentation. </li></ul><ul><li>If we are building advocacy and a long term relationship, consumers don’t really care which country or continent we’re in </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Instead its more about the quality, message and brand attributes </li></ul></ul><ul><li>I know you might be thinking…”what about?” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The differences in products from region to region require separate pages </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Promotions and contests are targeted regionally </li></ul></ul>
  18. 19. Basic Points To Consider <ul><li>Successful communities on Facebook offer an attitude of openness, transparency and enthusiasm - not a technology platform for advertising </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Facebook isn’t the place to sell your product it is the place to celebrate it. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The average Facebook user does not want content shoved down their throats </li></ul><ul><ul><li>particularly contests or other promotional programs that don’t speak to their overall enthusiasm for a brand </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Unless you are rewarding them… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>do not push a “conquest” contest or promo </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This is a recipe for disaster in online communities. These people are not your target audience for a conquest program. They are already your enthusiast </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Don’t build a page that pushes the product to a group that is already buying! </li></ul>
  19. 20. BREAKING IT DOWN <ul><li>The Strategy </li></ul>
  21. 22. THE ENTHUSIASTS <ul><li>Makes up 85%-90% </li></ul><ul><li>Simply a person who wants the Facebook equivalent of a “bumper sticker” on their profile </li></ul><ul><li>They are enthusiasts of a brand and they want the world to know it.   </li></ul><ul><li>A bulky enthusiast population promotes community vitality. </li></ul>
  22. 23. THE ADVOCATES <ul><li>Makes up 5%-10% </li></ul><ul><li>Represents the people who will continually update content on the page by simple “acknowledgements” </li></ul><ul><li>They consume the content and post messages on the wall, provide feedback on message boards and comment on content </li></ul>
  23. 24. THE INFLUENCERS <ul><li>Makes up 1% </li></ul><ul><li>This active community member provides all the advocacy and enthusiasm of the other group members, but is also active in original content creation. </li></ul><ul><li>These “uploaders” are very important in the long-term health of the community. </li></ul><ul><li>Caution! </li></ul><ul><li>Many companies make the mistake of assuming the primary role of the Influencer in their community over the long term. It’s important to assume this role to establish momentum, but over time, if no brand influencers self-identify and no user-generated content is contributed, there will be consequences. </li></ul>
  24. 25. Enthusiasts : Build Numbers & Stimulate Action <ul><li>Open Forum </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Propose to move the group to a fan page instead </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Better expansion opportunities and longevity of initiatives </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Easier to remember URL </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>There is tracking </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>A Playground </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Setup applications for members to…. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Identify with </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Share with others (viral) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Provide Opinion or Express themselves </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Setup causes and movements which tie back to Ben & Jerry’s social responsibilities. </li></ul><ul><li>Expand the potential 1% pool by a cross region fan page, allowing for more content creators or advocates </li></ul>
  25. 26. Advocates : Reward & Ego Boost <ul><li>Identify and reward pre-existing fan pages – Coke did it? Why can’t we? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The fan page was created by two users who liked Coke. What started as a fan page for fun, turned out to be the largest product fan page on Facebook. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Instead of taking over the page and making it their own, Coke rewarded the fans by bringing them to Atlanta and giving them a tour of the Coke facility. The fan page remains theirs, but now they have the blessing and help of Coca Cola. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>By empowering the fans to keep their fan page, Coke ensures a passionate page owner </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Identify with the demographic </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Interactions and activities rely heavily on who the majority of your facebook users are </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Some brands cannot expect huge followings on Facebook. Brands or product lines targeting the demographic most prominent on Facebook tend to see the quickest growth </li></ul></ul>
  26. 27. Advocates : Reward & Ego Boost <ul><li>Creating content that include participation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This is especially good, when our brand is not content or resource intensive </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Dell – uses facebook as a resource page for home business customers </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Target – uses the page for promotions and what's going on in store </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Offering something to consumers to join can help build a large community. Some examples of things to offer: Coupons, free scoops, weekly deals. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Other contest ideas could relate back to the Facebook Application itself – Burger King Sacrifice a Friend </li></ul></ul>
  27. 28. Influencers : Identify & Empower <ul><li>Ben & Jerry’s To Lead the Discussion </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Create a resource for advocates and enthusiasts to gain information from </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide touch points for experiences with Ben & Jerry’s </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>NOT control topics of discussion but to moderate </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Identify with, from participation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To select a handful of fans to lead topics of discussions within the page, and give them props for administrator rights. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Empower the influencers with resources to build on the Fan Page </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Contest frameworks </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Poll discussions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Event Sharing and Personal Experiences </li></ul></ul>
