Co-create, Activate and Engage

On June 30, 2005, Edelman hosted a panel discussion titled "Mastering New Media" in Amsterdam to discuss strategies designed to engage audiences through new media, such as blogs, online communities, message boards and text messaging. Richard Edelman CEO & President of Edelman had a great presentation: The Next Revolution is here: Co-create, Activate and Engage (ppt). You can also see a webcast of this presentation (wmv) and read the transcript of the speech.

Here is the summary:

"•There is a revolution in communications.  Talking at stakeholders is being replaced by relationship-based approach
•Traditional communications model—speaking to elites and advertising to mass audience—is a risky strategy
•Build credibility through by co-creating with target audience and “earned media” before starting advertising campaign
•Identify and activate “catalysts” early on, including employees
•Activate third-party advocates– physicians, associations
•Leverage multiple channels of engagement – Internet, media, direct, advocacy groups, public meetings, advertising
•New media requires us to be 1. Transparent; 2. Quick; and 3 Engaging, so operate at a policy discussion level because companies have to “be it” through earned media - you can’t “buy it” through paid media.
•Create the definitive source of credible information"

Erg interessant Hans! Ik ga 'm nog een keer bekijken. Krijg wel het vervelende gevoel dat er te weinig uren in een dag zitten om alle interessante ontwikkelingen bij te houden. Thanks.

@HJ: vervelend gevoel? Toch niet van/door mijn weblog hoop ik ;-) Gewoon deze posting in je to-do bakje in Furl/delicious of RSS reader stoppen. Die komt er wel uit als het tijd is.
