Rise of the Social Media function

A good post by Michael Gerard of IDC on the potential uses of social media within B2B marketing organisations.  His suggestions include:

  1. Establish a direct, relevant connection with your customers as a source of voice of the customer for new product development (e.g., through an on-line community)
  2. Improve customer satisfaction (e.g., enable customers to share experiences on-line by creating a self-running community where customers can interact with and learn from their peers)
  3. Increase the speed for troubleshooting and R&D by reducing the distance between customers and engineering
  4. Join the on-line technical conversations about your products that your customers are already having, by either leveraging your own community or listening to and participating in other companies’ communities
