What do You, Aaron Rodgers, and Associated Bank have in common?

Social Media Rock Star Event

May 22nd, 2013

maybe more than you think
Maybe more than you think…
  • Are you setting goals in your life and are you making plans to achieve them?
  • Does it help you to have a sense of inspiration when you pursue these goals?
  • Do you experience struggles and obstacles along the way?
  • Are you looking for ways to overcome these obstacles?
  • Do you appreciate it when someone lends you a hand in getting there?

But first, let’s take a step back…

why are we here today
Why are we here today?
  • To learn about a Social Media strategy that is a bit different – Myinspirationbank.com (featuring Aaron Rodgers)
  • To allow you a glance behind the curtain and understand the why, what, and how of bringing such a strategy to life
  • To share outcomes and lessons learned which (hopefully) apply to your efforts as well
  • Let’s get started…. A video is worth a 1000 words
the idea
The Idea
  • Associated Bank is on a journey towards becoming a bank that puts the customer and the community at the heart of its strategy
  • Who cares… all banks are evil
  • What would it take to show you? How do we not just say that, but live it? What if we had a website with tools that are just for you, not for our benefit?
  • Who cares… all banks are evil
  • What if that site had unique video content featuring Aaron Rodgers talking about what inspires him, sharing a side of him that you have never seen before? What if you could draw inspiration from him?
  • Hmmm, tell me more

Site development

  • Part of the bank’s web site vs. standalone
  • Truly social vs. moderated
  • Traditional look and feel vs. innovative/different
  • Time to market
  • Chicken and egg problem of content and community
  • Online advertising channels, channel mix
  • Social media support
  • Traditional media, radio, outdoor
  • Bank’s web site
  • Partner outreach

Marketing approach

Defining Success

  • Traffic to the site
  • Engagement with the site
  • Growth of the community
  • Secondary: conversion to business opportunity
  • Driving traffic through various channels – mixed results, very hard to predict what works, short spurts for trial and error
  • Engagement with the site – a smaller group of highly engaged users (7 minutes on site); a large group of bouncers (75%)
  • Growth of the community – Consumption oriented vs. goal oriented, where and when is someone in the mindset to be inspired and take action

General User Experience

  • Site not intuitive, purpose not clear at first glance
  • Confusion between Aaron Rodgers focus and inspiration focus, and what does all of this have to do with a bank…
  • Wow effect on content, but many never make it that far
  • High level of excitement among people who “inspire for a living”
    • Teachers/Educators, Health Professionals, Coaches
  • Opportunity for personal achievement
  • Opportunity for dialogue with family, friends, children

Inspiration User Experience

lessons learned
Lessons Learned
  • Be clear who your target audience is, and where/when you want to engage them (and where/when they want to engage with you)
  • Purity of the concept matters, don’t dilute your core with bells and whistles or “other stuff”
  • Navigation standards matter… a lot, creative design does not outweigh intuitive access to the content
  • Incubator concept: distributing responsibilities for a project among many players (who all have many other responsibilities) does not give you the focus and momentum you need
  • Motivation trumps money in social marketing
  • Forget about the stories of “viral content” – it is a steady climb (for all but very few)
next generation mib
Next Generation MIB
  • More intuitive/typical navigational feel for home page, purpose is clearer
  • Remove “Aaron fan zone”, showcase Aaron more purely in inspirational connection
  • Replace top down Marketing with grass roots outreach, remove conflict with consumption mindset
  • Partner strategies, dedicating a journey
  • Social ownership: colleague groups will own resource portals, content, and grass roots opportunities; potential to extend into MIB user base
  • Not yet: true social functionality
