Social Media Effectiveness Beyond Fans and Likes

After heavy flirting with social media in 2011, brands will go beyond merely looking at Likes and Fans, and start caring and measuring engagement and community building
The value of a meaningful relationship will be properly appreciated to build strong communities, CRM programs, loyalty and integrated transactions To prove the effectiveness of social media campaigns, brands will develop more sophisticated measurement algorithms to prove the ROI, more commonly to be known as ROSS (return on social spend)

Thanks to Flickr.com- creative commons

More Tweets, shares, Likes, posts, comments, views will take place in 1 month, than ever before News, scandals, records & exclusives will all be read on Twitter first. Then on the news channels and papers. Footage we arent supposed to see, we will. Thanks to Facebook, bit.ly and YouTube There will be more Likes and friends for London 2012 than any other sporting event, ever.

Confidence not fear

Federations, athletes, brands and celebrities will embrace the new digital and social landscape with more confidence
Those that are un-prepared, under resourced and schizophrenic will continue to fear the new world of communities and communications Athletes will be seen to check-in, update, upload and respond pre, after and even sometimes during a sporting event. Digital devices and applications will relay a kaleidoscope of information about the athlete, in real time, direct to fans and desktops

The ability for a fan to get closer to their hero, will present an enormous opportunity for communities and brands

Million Dollars Bloggers

Cyber PR will become more challenging across online influencers who traditionally would blog or tweet about a campaign for free. This will change in 2012. The worlds first million dollar blogger will be created
Already in LATAM, and especially in Mexico, it is not uncommon for a blogger to request $15,000 for a Tweet or blog post mentioning or linking to a brand. This emerging trend will spread across the globe Accessing a blogger, will in some instances require contacting a blog management agency. Blog networks will manage the syndication of posts across a diverse range of interests and passions

Sports Subscriptions

Sports federations will face a huge challenge in 2012:


How to evolve their (traditional) broadcasting rights package, when many of their audience are no longer tuning into traditional broadcast channel, and in some countries dont even own a TV anymore?

With more and more fans watching mainstream and niche sports on the web; on social networks; on mobile devices, successful federations will embrace the opportunity
The ability to watch catch up and real time sporting events, will increasingly be consumed on Facebook and YouTube. Social media subscription packages will provide new revenue streams and help reach and engage with young and new fans

Sport & Technology

Sport will continue to become more scientific, and technology will bring the most dramatic imagery and revelations to both big screen and little screen
Enjoyment of sport, even from an armchair, will become a thrilling experience. No longer a lean back and enjoy, but lean forward and immersion Sports cam technology will bring footage to our screens that weve never seen before. From 3D to 4D; slow motion to split screen; helmet cam to ball cam; adrenalin sensors to heart monitors

Agile content : more relevant, less costly

Campaigns will be created in days and weeks, not months or years. Real time listening, creation, and distribution will mean a trending topic is acted upon, to create the long tail effect of relevance, overnight
Traditional production and content costs will go down, but licensing costs will go up, benefiting bedroom content creators A fan at a sporting event will get rich quick, over the course of the weekend, at the press of a button. His unique content will be viewed (YouTube giving him advertising revenue for his page), licensed (broadcast revenue) and used without permission, winning a liable case

Fan Sourced Singles

Artists are increasingly asking their fans to not only suggest or create their album artwork, but to contribute to the actual audio that is released on the single or album.
During 2012 we predict an increase in fan sourced audio. More and more fans will contribute to the official release, making the list of credits read like a whos who of the ultimate fan club. Brands and artists will embrace this collaborative opportunity. A fan will be supersaulted from his bedroom to the 02 or Wembley stage. Royalties will take this fan from a 1 bedroom apartment, to a beach front bungalow.

PR in the media and marketing mix

There will be a continued integration of PR in the marketing, advertising and customer service mix.
Every campaign will have a strong role for PR and this will lead to a stronger and more strategic place for PR professionals around an integrated planning table. Silos will continue to be broken down. Earned media, paid media, owned media and shared media will become standard categories for all PR professionals to consider how they plan and integrate campaigns. Developing relationships with bloggers in earned media will no longer be a speciality of a digital team or agency. All PR agencies will offer this outreach.

Infographics and story telling through imagery

2011 saw an explosion in the use of Infographics to decipher an analytical story. More than 500,000 Infographics were created. 2012 will continue this trend, but with the addition of video Infographics.
Infographics will evolve with he ability to click through multiple layers of content, creating a rabbit hole of data visualization. Agencies will create presentations leveraging these new formats. PowerPoint presentations will reduce in the number of slides, with more and more information being displayed creatively on one slide.

Personalized Content

Content will be more customized for each target audience based upon location, profile, interests and their networks.
Smart filtering and customization will make content more shareable and rewarding. Sharing content across a consumers peer groups, will provide another layer of rewards for the consumer. Great content will continue to be viral and shareable. An increase in mobile content, delivered direct to a consumers handset will create connections all through the day, the night, and weekend.

PR accountability

PR will become more accountable and more accurate in measuring the ROI.
Traditional media monitoring agencies will integrate buzz monitoring services and metrics to provide more accurate qualative and quantative results.

Every PR agency will provide as part of a campaign evaluation : reach, sentiment, influencer analysis and equivalent media value (through an updated media evaluation tool).
Accountability and campaign evaluation will become more accurate and enable more accurate campaign planning and re-optimization. Clients will request greater accountability and performance related pricing models.

PR and the role of Influencers

Influencer marketing will not just mean inviting a high profile celebrity to an event. Much of the influencer engagement and marketing will take place online.
Influencer identification tools will enable the PR industry to more accurately identify and engage with powerful online advocates. These influencers will be leveraged to not online feature and talk about a campaign, but to be involve din the planning, ideation and evolution of a campaign. Each agency will create their own rating system to identify the most important influencers pertinent to their objectives

Digital Amnesty Day

1 day a year, everything will shut down, almost. Companies will ask all their staff to switch off and unplug for 24 hours.
At first employees will be scared and confused. They will scratch their heads wondering how they can perform their job or task, without a digital connection. After 3 hours a smile will spread across their faces. It will be a beautiful day or real relationships and friendships the old fashioned way, face to face. We will re-discover social skills, beyond Facebook. We will put into perspective the role of digital. It will become a yearly event.

Location Based Entertainment (LBE)

Sporting venues and stadiums are the second most checked-in places worldwide. The most popular checked-in places are airports
Brands, sponsors and rights holders will leverage this opportunity to geo target fans with compelling and shareable content and promotional messages. Having identified a physical fan, data will provide an on-going and customized relationship back to their home 2012 will see a huge increase in the connections between these attending fans, virtual fans and brand messages. 2012 will become the year of social currency more shareable, more entertaining and more personalized

Live events get greener

Stronger corporate social responsibility, combined with increased consumer awareness of recycling and the need for a cleaner environment, will result in more environmentally friendly events.
Sponsors will require event producers to have committed to make the event as carbon neutral as possible. Sponsors will consider this green score just as much as the number of attendees and media value. Recycling will have high visibility at each event and be a creative and entertaining activity that attendees warmly embrace.

Pop Up Events and Experiences

Whilst large scale events will remain a key feature of a brands yearly outdoor calendar, increasingly brands will take to the streets, beaches and parks with impromptu pop up events.
There will be equal investment in large scale one offs with small socially promoted flash mobs. Mystery and intrigue will be created in the run up to a pop up event, but only announced in the last 48 hours through social media.
