Rules for the Social Era If the industrial era was about building things, the social era is about connecting things, people, and ideas.
RULES FOR THE SOCIAL ERA:
1. EVERYTHING is social 2. The lines between social and professional are blurred 3. The ‘consumer’ is no longer passive - they are PROsumers 4. Sharing communicates identity - people share what they want others to think they are 5. Relationships are more important than ever. Transactional interactions will be disintermediated by technology.
ARE YOU REALLY BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS?
TRANSACTIONAL Only interact when you want something (or when your CRM says to reach out). Focus on your value being coverage and price. Always Be Closing. Customer service driven. RELATIONAL Really become part of your clients/ contacts lives. Care. Follow. Listen. Focus on helping your clients figure out and achieve their goals. Always Be Listening. Customer EXPERIENCE driven.
“You’re not in the insurance
business, you’re in the EXPERIENCE business.” Competing on price, coverage and service is a race to the bottom and AI/chatbots/ algorithms will outcompete you there every day.
3 IMPORTANT TAKEAWAYS: 1. If
you’re not at enough touchpoints along the customer journey, you don’t exist. 3. Insurtech will win in the race to the bottom of the price/ convenience war. Compete on EXPERIENCE. 2. You can’t say “we don’t need social” because EVERYTHING is social. It’s not a tool, it’s a cultural shift.
traditional b2b tactics: Cold calling,
professional networking, joining local business groups, buying lists of prospects (to call and email), advertising seminars/webinars, encouraging referrals from clients and professional connections, golf? etc.
SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM ANALYTICS Social
media platforms offer up everything from demographics to deeper psychographics, interests, and incomes like Twitter analytics. https://analytics.twitter.com/
SOCIAL INTELLIGENCE Social Intelligence tools
pull data from social networks to analyze interests and affinities of audiences. You can tell a lot about people by who they explicitly follow online. (mostly not free, but mind-blowing and make learning about your audience instantaneous)

SOCIAL LISTENING There are several
free and inexpensive social listening tools that help you keep track of the ongoing conversation around #insurtech, #digitalhealth, #HealthIT, #HRtech and more.
3 IMPORTANT TAKEAWAYS: 1. Listening
is the most important function of social. You’ve never had so much insight into your audience! 3. There are tons of free tools to help you figure out your audience. All you need to do to use them is to listen. 2. You need a strategy and that strategy will come from really understanding your audience.
1. I know you 2.
I’m looking for you 3. I’m comparing you to your competition 4. I’m buying from you 5. I’m using your product 6. I’m reviewing you THE CUSTOMER JOURNEY 1.AWARE2.SEARCH 3.DECIDE 4.TRANSACT 5.USE 6.ADVOCATE p.s. It is actually NOT as neat and clear as this, it just looks that way to be pretty to look at.
SEARCH Customer’s state: Actively looking
and researching for a good option in your product category. It is better if you are already part of the consideration (built awareness), but there are other ways to get you in the search path.
SOCIAL HELPING YOU GET FOUND
WHEN THE CUSTOMER IS RESEARCHING Blog posts, YouTube videos, Tweets and other fresh content ranks very high in Google Search results. Zane Benefits is on PAGE 1 of a search for “employee benefits” because of their blog content. BLOG CONTENT !
MOST CUSTOMERS HAVE ALREADY DECIDED
BEFORE THEY CALL YOU “Today's business buyers do not contact suppliers directly until 57 percent of the purchase process is complete. The challenge for marketers is to be present in these channels at all times with content that educates buyers and helps guide commercial decisions.” B2B’s Digital Revolution, Think With Google https://www.thinkwithgoogle.com/marketing-resources/b2b-digital-evolution/
SOCIAL TACTICS THAT HELP SWAY
THE CUSTOMER TO CHOOSE YOU When it comes to making a decision, it’s not just about price. If you have social content (helpful videos and posts) and lots of people talking about you positively, it will help to steer the decision in your favour.
SOCIAL THAT CAN HELP THE
ONBOARDING EXPERIENCE Helpful content can make the difference between a new customer being lost and feeling educated. One of the videos in particular generated close to $30,000 of revenue. “And it all had to do with the fact that we were answering questions that, at the time, weren’t even on the NYS [New York State] Department of Insurance’s website,” (Ryan) Hanley said. State of Content Marketing: Insurance Contently, July 1, 2015 https://contently.com/strategist/2015/07/01/state-of-content-marketing-insurance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gyrt84STlgE
Every time you or a
happy customer posts online, you create another opportunity to appear along another customer’s journey.
3 Final Takeaways 1. The
customer’s journey is complex, non- linear, and CONSTANT. You never know when an impression can be made. 3. Dismissing social as part of your growth strategy, is dismissing multiple opportunities. Your competitors won’t. 2. No matter where your potential customers are on their journey, you can be there with social. Social is really great at building trust.
