20. @dandunlop Real Simple Poll

21. @dandunlop Real Simple Poll

22. The Connected Consumer • Broadcast era is over • Can’t simply buy people’s attention • The consumer controls: • What they view • What they share • And how they view it (what screen) • Building “communities of shared interest” is an ideal way to take advantage of this trend • Helps brands connect with their audiences in @dandunlop a more human manner

23. Real Simple & Huffington Post: @dandunlop

24. Health Communication: Crisis of Relevance • Our communication and marketing today is largely without value! • Our use of social media is largely without value! • To be effective, you must forget what you think you know about social media. @dandunlop 24

25. Marketing as Community Building • Need for healthcare marketing reform • Moving from marketing “to” women (and families) to marketing “with” women • Making an investment in community • Less transactional; more long term • Deepening engagement with your brand • Providing value in the relationship @dandunlop

26. What Does Value Look Like? • Entertainment • Convenience • Information resource • Sense of belonging • Opportunity for self-expression • Opportunity to be heard; to share • Emotional connection • All of these should be present within a community @dandunlop

27. Elements of Community • Reciprocity • Shared values or interests • Commonality • Listening – We want to be heard • Valuing the opinions of others • Support – emotional and informational • Kindness/Civility • Feeling valued and appreciated @dandunlop

28. Marketing as Community Building @dandunlop Community Building • Fundamental Change: 28

29. Environments/Communities • Blogs • Social networking platforms: Facebook, @dandunlop Pinterest, etc. • True online communities (Inspire, Everyday Health, etc.) • 5 million+ blog posts by members (working with Stanford Medicine) • Your website! What kind of environment have you created? The low hanging fruit.

35. Online Patient Support Communities • “The proliferation of Web forums and discussion boards and medical blogs all speak to our inherent desire to seek out those like us, to affirm the symptoms and aberrations we’ve finally found a name for, to assimilate into a community when we’ve felt isolated from the larger world of the healthy for so long.” Life Disrupted: Getting Real About Chronic Illness In Your Twenties and Thirties, by Laurie Edwards @dandunlop
