To become a real…<br />A conversation mapping is the starting point.<br />The philosophy of the conversation manager<br />The Conversation Manager has a fresh perspective on how brands operate successfully in cooperation with today's consumer. Conversing with consumers is the key. Listening to and conversing with consumers is a necessary talent to retrain as a Conversation Manager. <br />Conversation Mapping at the start<br />The first step towards becoming a Conversation Manager is observing – listening to what is being said online and offline about your brand and your competitors. Conversation Mapping uses a validated online survey to investigate who is talking about what through which channels (online & offline), how often, for what reasons & with what impact? These insights allow marketers to set a first step towards the strategic implementation of conversation management within their company or organization.<br />Answering the real ultimate question<br />There is more to conversations than the intention to recommend a certain product or service. To successfully leverage the word-of-mouth that surrounds your brand, you need to understand the strategic role of online and offline conversations within your category.

  10. 10. The ultimate outputMore on Barking, Bashing, Bonding & Ballads<br />The dark side: Barking & Bashing<br />Obviously, you want conversations about your brand to be positive. However, things don’t always go as planned. But in a way, the good news is that not all barking dogs bite. Take Coca-Cola for example. When we tracked conversations about Coke Zero a couple of years ago, it turned out that although the tone-of-voice was more negative than the buzz around more established soft drink brands, consumers did not necessarily change their opinion because of that. A closer look at the content of these conversations revealed why this was the case: consumers were talking about the most subjective thing of all – taste. Some loved it, some hated it and in fact, few of them had the ambition to actually change each other’s minds. If the question is: “what is word-of-mouth exactly doing for my brand?”, then having your brand exposed to barking conversations means that these are not changing opinions, but are mainly raising awareness. <br />Although soft drinks (and everyday food products) are often stuck in the bashing position, things can turn into impactful bashing if objective arguments are blended into the conversations. When The Center for Science in the Public Interest filed a complaint against Coca Cola because they believe that “the excessive quantity of sugar present in the drink may in fact offset any health benefits”, discussions about Vitamin Water were no longer about taste. From that point onwards, the conversations were about facts. Consequently, the impact increased and word-of-mouth did exactly what a lot of marketers fear the most: cornering the brand<br />The bright side: Bonding & Ballads<br />Contrary to common belief, the majority of conversations are positive about brands. In fact, only around 5% is extremely negative. But even if your brand receives nothing but praise from consumers, this does not necessarily mean that you can expect word-of-mouth to automatically grow your business. If you don’t play your cards right, the role of conversations could as well be limited to sustaining your current fanbase. <br />When investigating the game console category after Nintendo released it’s Wii console, we noticed that although Playstation and Xbox received predominantly positive buzz, these conversations seldomly led to a change of hearth among the consumers involved in the talks. The newly launched Wii however did not just enjoy good vibes, but really reaped the benefits of impactful conversations. A closer look at the conversations reported by consumers, provided a clear explanation for the difference within this category. Apparently, Playstation and Xbox mainly had their existing fans bondingwith eachother. Yes, they were positive about the brand of their preference, but they simply did not bother to become evangelists instead of just fans. With the new controller, the Wii console provided the perfect conversation starter for their lovers to take the conversation out of the inner circle and into their broader social network of non-gamers. True ballads for a radical innovation, that gave the brand the sales lead over competition.<br />
  11. 11.

For example, if you are working for a soft drink, it is very ambitious – and maybe even unrealistic – to define your objective as making all brand conversations positive.<br />
  12. 12. The ultimate outputExample with brands in one category<br />Example<br />Change<br />High<br />Ballad<br />Bashing<br />Make sure that people can talk directly to you. Nothing makes a basher bash more than not being able to tell it to your face. <br />Go beyond the ballads, into keynotes. Use your brand fans to answer questions from other consumers and further increase impact.<br />S<br />Allow yourself a hype. If awareness and trial are the main objective, frequency of conversations becomes more important.<br />Involve your fans in the brand. Initiate co-creation processes (e.g. through communities) and let them to shape new products.<br />Low<br />Bonding<br />Barking<br />---<br />+++<br />Tone of voice<br />Brands in the framework<br />Knowing what conversations are doing for your brand today gives a clear direction for the next steps in your conversation management. It is clear that Chaudfontaine in this case will have to focus on turning the negative conversations around, while the challenge for Sprite is to increase the number of conversations in the first place.<br />
