Seminar: Kampagnen strategisch planen und wirkungsvoll umsetzen

March 12, 2012

Peter Metzinger bietet nach Jahren, in denen er ausschliesslich an Fachhochschulen und Instituten unterrichtete, auf Anfrage hin wieder ein öffentliches Seminar an. Nichts wie hin…

Kampagnen strategisch planen und wirkungsvoll umsetzen

Campaigning ist eine Denkweise und Methodik, die von erfolgreichen NGOs entwickelt wurde, um mit wenig Ressourcen viel zu erreichen. Sie stellt eine zeitgemässe Ergänzung zu den klassischen Konzepten der Kommunikation dar, die in den zunehmend dynamischen und komplexen Umfeldern immer häufiger an Grenzen stossen. Wie werden Kampagnenprojekte konzipiert? Was muss eine Strategie enthalten, damit man die Öffentlichkeit durchdringt und die anvisierten Veränderungen tatsächlich erreicht? Dieses Seminar vermittelt Ihnen, wie Sie Kampagnen strategisch inszenieren und Ressourcen optimal einsetzen.

In diesem Seminar lernen Sie die Erfolgsgrundsätze guten Campaignings kennen.
Grundlage für deren wirkungsvollen Einsatz ist ein Strategiemodell, das sich an den besten Strategiekonzepten der Strategielehre orientiert. Auch dieses wird im Kurs vermittelt. Zudem lernen Sie die wichtigsten Instrumente der Situationsanalyse kennen, darunter solche, die neue Sichtweisen eröffnen und damit Lösungsansätze aufzeigen, an die sonst keiner denken würde. Auch auf den Einsatz von Social Media wird eingegangen.

Strategic Campaigning Guideline No. 2 Interpreted For Your Conduct Of Life

January 5, 2011

By Peter Metzinger

While reading the last pages of The Black Swan by Nassim Nicholas Taleb today I came across some nice guidelines for your conduct of life, or your attitude towards life, that deal with being in control instead of letting others control you. That makes them nice interpretations of SCG 2. Have fun reading and implementing:

  • “Missing a train is only painful if you run after it! Likewise, not matching the idea of success others expect from you is only painful if that’s what you are seeking.“
  • “You stand above the rat race and the pecking order, not outside of it, if you do so by choice.”
  • “Quitting a high-paying position, if it is your decision, will seem a better payoff than the utility of the money involved (this may seem crazy, but I’ve tried it and it works). This is the first step toward the stoic’s throwing a four-letter word at fate.”
  • “You have far more control over your life if you decide on your criterion by yourself.”
  • “Be aggresive; be the one to resign, if you have the guts.”
  • “It is more difficult to be a loser in a game you set up yourself.”
  • “In Black Swan terms, this means that you are exposed to the improbable only if you let it control you.”
  • “You always control what you do; so make this your end.”

Another nice one, thought not SCG 2, is this one:

“When you develop your opinions on the basis of weak evidence, you will have difficulty interpreting subsequent information that contradicts these opinions, even if this new information is obviously more accurate.”

“Listening first, selling second” – How Social Media Change The Way We Do Business

May 8, 2010

By Peter Metzinger

“Listening first, selling second” is equivalent to what I say about Campaigning: first listen, then talk. The following video is an impressive summary of current figures and trends on social media and how they change the way we communicate and gives an impression what this may mean about how we do marketing and do business. A few quotes got my special attention:

  1. Facebook tops Google for weekly traffic in the U.S.
  2. 1 out of 8 couples married in the U.S. last year met via social media
  3. We don’t have a choice on whether we DO social media, the question is how well we DO it.”
  4. If Facebook were a country it would be the world’s 3rd largest ahead of the United States and only behind China and India
  5. 2009 US Department of Education study revealed that on average, online students out performed those receiving face-to-face instruction
  6. 80% of companies use social media for recruitment; 95% of these using LinkedIn
  7. The fastest growing segment on Facebook is 55-65 year-old females
  8. Because of the speed in which social media enables communication, word of mouth now becomes world of mouth
  9. 25% of search results for the World’s Top 20 largest brands are links to user-generated content Read the rest of this entry »

Social networking sites grab big slice of Web ads

September 3, 2009

Reuters reports today:

About one of every five Internet display ads in the United States is viewed on a social networking Web site like MySpace and Facebook, according to a new report.

The report by analytics firm comScore underscores the increasing prominence of social media sites in the Internet landscape and broadening acceptance of the sites by brand advertisers.

It also illustrates the increasing competition between social media sites and established Internet companies like Yahoo Inc and Time Warner Inc’s AOL which have long billed themselves as the top online destinations for brand advertisers.

The study by comScore, released on Tuesday, said social media sites represented 21.1 percent of U.S. Internet display ads in July, with MySpace and Facebook accounting for more than 80 percent of those ads.

“Because the top social media sites can deliver high reach and frequency against target segments at a low cost, it appears that some advertisers are eager to use social networking sites as a new advertising delivery vehicle,” said Jeff Hackett, senior vice president of comScore.

According to comScore, AT&T Inc, Experian Interactive and IAC/Interactive Corp’s Ask Network were the top three advertisers on social networking sites in July.

While social media sites have enjoyed a surge in popularity in recent years — Facebook is now the world’s fourth-most visited Web site — some observers have questioned whether the sites can be effectively monetized.

Because the content on social media sites is created by users, and could therefore prove racy or offensive, some have questioned the willingness of marketers to place their brands alongside that content.

“They are sensitive to some extent, but nowhere near to the extent you might think,” Sanford Bernstein analyst Jeff Lindsay said of advertisers.

The price of placing ads on social networking sites is significantly less than on a Web portal like Yahoo or AOL, said Lindsay. The vast amount of Web pages available on social networks means that advertisers can purchase a massive volume of ad impressions at bargain prices.

The strategy may not be ideally suited to smaller marketers, or advertisers seeking a direct response from their ads, said Lindsay.

“For big, national brands it works just fine, just like TV,” said Lindsay. “It’s a huge, huge volume game.”

The Year The Media Died

July 24, 2009

Following articles on newspapers and media in the US filing bancruptcy I found the following video today. It brings the huge transformation to the point that all information based organizations are experiencing and are going to experience in the near future. The big question today is how communication is going to work in five years from now, when the gatekeepr function of the traditional approach falls away. Which role will be left for print, TV, radio, news agencies, advertising and PR agencies?
