Welcome to SES Magazine, your official guide to ClickZ’s Connected Marketing Week in San Francisco. Since last year, we’ve all gotten a lot more connected thanks to more sophisticated devices and an exploding app economy. This week, marketers from brands and agencies will have the opportunity to connect in person and share best practices involving this dynamic digital landscape. Joining to make this happen include the teams at SES, Online Marketing Summit, Mobile Marketing Association, Interactive Advertising Bureau, Email Experience Council, and the Barcelona-based Search Congress. To help you make the most of this week, please be sure to download the new SES San Francisco Conference & Expo App. Search for “SES San Francisco” in the iTunes App Store.

Office of the Mayor Edwin M. Lee City & County of San Francisco GREETINGS FROM THE MAYOR

On behalf of the City and County of San Francisco, it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Connected Marketing Week 2011, being held from August 15-19, 2011, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Marketers, corporate decision makers, webmasters, and search engine marketers (SEMs), including pay-per-click (PPC) advertisers and search engine optimization (SEO) professionals, have been attending the SES Conference & Expo in California for the past 12 years, and this year, SES joins the Connected Marketing Week festival happening in San Francisco. Organized and programmed by the SES Advisory Board, the festival will be packed with more than 5 different interactive marketing forums and conferences and host more than 100 sessions covering PPC management, SEO, social media, local, mobile, video optimization, email, ad networks and exchanges, and usability, plus an expo floor with hundreds of companies. Welcome to San Francisco, a small city that dares to dream big, bound only by our capacity to imagine. San Francisco has always been more than a place. San Francisco is an idea—the idea that diversity builds a stronger society, that tolerance advances democracy, that innovation and compassion is essential for a better world. I commend all the organizers who worked toward making this event a true success. Best wishes for a productive conference and success in all your future endeavors! With warmest regards,

Edwin M. Lee Mayor

cover story / focus: marketing strategies

Susan Bratton on persuasion marketing A Q&A with SES San Francisco’s keynote speaker.

D

igital marketing entrepreneur Susan Bratton’s newest passion:    persuasion marketing and conversion triggers. As CEO of    Personal Life Media, Bratton is adept at applying, testing, and fine-tuning marketing approaches to convert website visitors into people who buy her company’s home-study courses. In a telephone interview with ClickZ’s executive editor Anna Maria Virzi, the keynote speaker for SES San Francisco discussed her approach to persuasion marketing. SES: What is a persuasion strategy? Susan Bratton: A persuasion strategy is an approach, in this case, that a marketer takes to understand what’s happening at an emotional level with a customer, and to deliver the information—in the right sequence—about how that product solves a problem so that the customer can easily make a buying decision with the brand. SES: How can a persuasion strategy help improve conversion rates? SB: Once you understand what I call the four realms of persuasion marketing—one of them being structured communications—you can start to look at how you move prospects through your sales funnel. You can put the information in the right sequence for them to make a buying decision. SES: Besides structured communications, what are the other parts of persuasion marketing?

SB: Storytelling, copywriting, and neuro-marketing—neuroscience as applied to marketing. SES: Are marketers who have creative backgrounds better suited to develop persuasion strategies than someone with an analytics background? SB: Creative versus analytical, it doesn’t matter either way. That’s what’s great about learning about persuasive marketing: it does not matter which place you come from. There are processes, structures, and tools that help you learn the part that you are not best at. SES: What’s the biggest myth you’ve heard about persuasion strategies? SB: Most people try to do one or two tactics, like the rule of reciprocity. They will try to stuff these things into their communications instead of thinking about the higher level of the entire structure of conversation with the prospect. It’s not a myth; it’s a mistake. SES: You’re an upbeat, positive person. How does that fit into a persuasion strategy, and what are your tips for dealing with negativity and cynicism? SB: I’m an upbeat and positive person, and I believe in the products I market. If you don’t feel like you have the juice for the product you’re marketing, you need to go back to what your offer is. Persuasion strategies, no matter how great they are, cannot replace or shore up what is ultimately not an irresistible offer.

Learn More Susan Bratton’s keynote speech takes place on Tuesday, August 16, at 9 a.m. She’ll discuss lessons that she’s learning in conversion optimization during the trial launch of Revive Her Drive, an online membership program for men looking to bring back the spark in long-term relationships. All keynote attendees receive free access to her persuasion marketing cheat sheets, book excerpts, resources, and tools at ConversionTriggers.com.

Tablets and advertising: A revolution in the making For advertisers, there are two big revolutions being kicked off by the growth of tablets: one creative and the other strategic. by Gary Stein

O

n May 17 of this year, Forrester  Research published a report with the title “What the Post-PC Era Really Means,” authored (primarily) by Sarah Rotman Epps. The title caught my eye because it offered up two big challenges to me, the reader and interactive-marketing practitioner. First, we are either in, or about to enter, a brand new era that is described not so much by what it is going to be, but rather by what it is leaving behind (the “PC” in “Post-PC” being the bit of technology thrown into the gaping dustbin of computing history). Second, even though we are barely in this new era (if we’re in it at all), evidently we, collectively, are confused about what it all really means. Naturally, I find these sorts of challenges challenging. I work with clients every day, and every day I counsel them to be sure not to get too sucked into the flash of new technology and to instead stay focused on their core business goals. Then, and only then, can they be sure that they are using technology appropriately. “Back off, Forrester!” I was prepared to tweet. “You don’t know me!” I would post. “You’re not my dad!” I would … um … call my island in Second Life. Luckily, May 17 was a Tuesday, and every Tuesday I take double my normal dosage of Chill Pills, so I actually did none of that and simply read the report. It’s really good. If you are a subscriber, I highly recommend downloading it here: http://www.forrester.com/rb/ Research/what_post-pc_era_really_means/q/ id/58986/t/2. The heart of it all is a definition of what they actually mean by the “Post-PC Era”: “a social and technological phenomenon in which computing experiences become ubiquitous, casual, intimate, and physical.” Although Forrester breaks a clear rule of definitions in that they should be limiting and not invite too many new questions (“intimate”?), this is a handy checklist of what we should expect people will do with devices that are online, have computing power, but are—somehow—not computers as we have come to know them. We’re talking, of course,

Crowdsourcing and user-generated content Practical ways to create meaningful content for your brand and recognize participants within your social community. by Lee Odden

O

ne of the most compelling online marketing scenarios for the intersection of content, search, and social media is user-generated content (UGC). Companies often initiate social media programs to stimulate dialogue with customers and develop relationships. At the same time, useful content serves to fuel much of brand participation on social networks and media-sharing sites. While effective for companies without a staff of writers, the continuous creation of new content presents resource challenges. Concurrently, social media programs can run a bit dry if the brand isn’t engaging with the community on a regular basis. A content marketing solution for both situations can be found through crowdsourcing and usergenerated content. Crowdsourcing is the practice of presenting the community with a problem along with a plea to assist in its solution. For example, Netflix offered a prize of $1,000,000 for the best collaborative filtering algorithm to predict user ratings of films. There were 184 teams competing to beat Netflix’s own algorithm for predicting ratings of movies that customers would like by 10 percent. In the case of crowdsourcing and usergenerated content, the approach is similar, except the “problem” is the creation of content around a particular topic, and there’s no million-dollar prize. User-generated content is often associated with ratings, reviews, forums, media sharing, social profiles within a niche community, and similar opportunities for consumers to publish and share. As brands participate in social communities—asking and answering questions, engaging customers, and sharing content—numerous opportunities arise to involve the community with content creation. Crowdsourcing helps a brand create new, meaningful content and provides an opportunity for relevant recognition of participants within the brand’s social community. This tactic offers several advantages:

ƒƒ UGC is trusted. ƒƒ Contributors have an interest in helping promote the content. ƒƒ UGC provides more content for search engines. ƒƒ UGC provides more information sources for prospects and customers. ƒƒ UGC publishing allows for critical feedback about products and services. ƒƒ UGC publishing provides tools for brand evangelists. ƒƒ UGC facilitates brand conversations within the marketplace. Of course, there are a few cons, too: ƒƒ Resources are needed for oversight and moderation. ƒƒ Ease of publishing may lead to spam. ƒƒ Information could be false and outdated. ƒƒ Ownership is unclear. ƒƒ Structuring UGC publishing can be challenging. ƒƒ There is the potential for negative information about the brand to appear. The good news is that most of the cons can be mitigated with good communications, oversight, and process. From a practical application standpoint, here are a few examples of crowdsourcing and repurposing content: 1. Interviews. Raising questions is one of the most basic ways to crowdsource content. The method to employ depends on the desired outcome. Asking the community for suggestions of whom to interview and what questions to ask is a great way to get people involved. Interviewing industry thought leaders provides the brand’s audience with unique content and creates a positive association between the “brandividual” and the company. 2. Social Q&A. Yahoo Answers, LinkedIn, and sites like Quora can provide very

Crowdsourcing Tip: Interviews Empathize with thought leaders, who have busy schedules. It will often be far more effective to ask one question of 10 famous people than 10 questions of one person. When you do that, you’ve made it easy for each person to answer and have also multiplied the number of potential influencers that will help promote the finished product.

useful platforms to present questions and attract answers from a variety of people. Of course, your intent needs to be clear and permission for reuse should be obtained before republishing. Those familiar with the Q&A communities can word questions to attract replies from specific influentials who might not otherwise respond to a content participation pitch via email. 3. Contests resulting in content. Examples of contests in which consumers produce their own videos and share images abound on the social web. Search engines love any kind of content, especially text. Andy Beal runs a great contest for a search marketing scholarship on his Marketing Pilgrim blog. The articles written by contestants drive traffic to Andy’s website and also become content on it. To top if off, the articles are compiled into an e-book. 4. Comment feedback loop. One of the most meaningful ways for a community to engage with a brand is through comments on a company blog. Asking readers to participate in a dialogue by commenting can result in content that is better than the original blog post. continues on page 80

5:45-6:45p Open Mic: SEW Black Hat, White Hat Unconferenced Search engines provide guidelines to protect their algorithms and the integrity of their results. But these are not laws; they are what they are—guidelines. Do we really have to stick to them? What if we find a loophole or two? Can we get better results if we go under the wire? Of course, that would mean only some of us were playing by the perceived rules. And the likelihood is that the white hat practitioners may find a black hat standing on their head and pushing them down the charts. Join us for our unique unconferenced session, with a glass of your favorite beverage in your hand, of course! Location: second-floor foyer.

International Latinos and Search

Young, Latin and Social

Can your customers find you in any language? Can you find them? The Spanish-language U.S. search market is over 200 million queries a month. Latinos in the U.S. and overseas have a keen affinity for search with several variations on well-known themes. Don’t limit your campaigns with psychological and geographic borders. This market has a sizeable wallet and a hunger for early adoption. Come learn techniques for search and best practices for acquisition from specialists on the Hispanic market. What are you waiting for? Speaker: • Mary Zerafa, Vice President, impreMedia

The U.S. Latino marketplace has over 50 million users, is highly connected and painfully mobile. If social strategies are in your target zone, you must understand this story. Cross border exchanges of ideas, culture and information also feed the frenzy. And how does this apply to search? If you show, we’ll tell. Come learn how to crack the code everyone is working on: Young, Social and Latin. Speakers: • Mary Zerafa, Vice President, impreMedia • James Briggs, CEO, Briabe Mobile, Inc.

Crowdsourcing and user-generated content continued from page 38 Brands can then recognize blog commenters by drawing attention to the “best of” comments through a separate blog post or in a newsletter (at our agency, we do it in the TopRank Marketing Newsletter). 5. Book authoring by community. Reaching out to industry experts to share their insights as part of a larger project can be very effective. Author Michael Miller did this with Online Marketing Heroes, of which I was a part. He interviewed 25 successful marketers; the results of those interviews became the book. Another example involves soliciting subject matter experts to write articles of 1,000 words or so on pre-determined

80   SES • August 2011 {San Francisco}

topics. The brand serves as editor to compile the articles into an e-book, which can be used as fulfillment in a lead generation campaign. Make sure that participants are aware of what you’re doing. Being upfront about your intentions will help them do a better job with their contributions and may even incentivize them to help promote the final outcome. One can overrely on a community for content creation, so don’t overdo it. Also, as a tool for recognition, participant involvement must be relevant and focused on a quality outcome versus quantity. Genuine recognition inspires better work and motivates participants to share future crowdsourced content more enthusiastically. As you look at the social networks, communities, prospects, and customers that make up your brand’s ecosystem, think about

where you would start with crowdsourcing. You may find not only that the effort helps your brand create content, but also that the exercise of involving your community results in added social engagement and search optimization assets. Lee Odden is the CEO of Top­ Rank Online Marketing, a digital marketing and public relations firm specializing in strategic Internet marketing consulting, training, and implementation services, including online PR, SEM, and social media marketing. A veteran Internet marketer, Odden has consulted for clients such as HP, McKesson, Northwest Airlines, PRWeb, and the national PRSA.
