From These Organizations:
The emergence of social networks has not just changed how people communicate and share information with one another. It has the power to fundamentally change business in ways that are just beginning to be discovered. The social network is no longer just an interesting technological showcase; it is a cultural phenomenon and the most disruptive technological force in society today.
Consider this, you are a representative for Sports personalities; you make money off the back of the success (or failures) of individuals through PR. The people or personalities you represent are high profile, always in the limelight and sometimes get things wrong, or very right!
Wouldn’t you, as their representative, like to know the value (and risk) the individual holds in the Social Networks?
That is where you need individual ‘customer’ insight. This term ‘Individual Customer’ insight, is often associated with end-user web sites where personalised content can be promoted or served based around the ongoing profile being built around an individual, from the very first click! But, such technology now exists to analyse in microscopic detail the behaviours that are occurring on Facebook, for example.
Facebook is the world’s biggest self-updating data source, with over 750 million members, who willingly give up around 150 crucial bits of lifestyle information about themselves.
Consider the value of knowing a high profile personality has 250,000 fans – now consider the marketing opportunity you have to those 250,000 fans. Perhaps you can establish partnerships with leading brands such as Adidas or Nike, Cannondale or Scott, BMW or Mercedes and so on. Suddenly, 250,000 fans in the Social Networks have a seriously attractive financial attraction – increase the wealth of your Sports personality, keep their loyalty and increase your own wealth and portfolio by becoming increasingly more successful and popular.
You have the connections, technology exists to feed you with the valuable insight you are yearning for. What are you waiting for?
