Executive Summary
•
The story so far in social networking has been one of incredible growth. But Wave 6 shows that in the future the
biggest impact of social media will come from the increasing amount of time people are spending on them. Social
networks are now legitimate rivals to all forms of media and will continue to have a huge effect on behaviour and
media consumption.
•
Consumers are continuing to move away from increasingly soloed brand websites, viewing them as specialist or
one dimensional experiences compared to those offered by social media. Brands will need to reach out to
consumers in the social spaces if they are to connect online.
•
Even those data privacy concerns are rising, attachment to social networks is stronger than ever. With over 40%
of people saying they are worried about missing out if they don’t visit their social network. As a result users are
fully prepared to share their data in return for the benefits that social platforms bring.
•
Social experiences deliver very clear value to brands. Understanding the social experiences the consumer wants
AND which of these experiences deliver the brand’s marketing objectives is the key to unlocking this value. This is
an important part of making social media a legitimate platform for brand development.
•
Despite the reluctance of many companies to discuss problems, particularly in social media, our research has
shown that actually responding to a customer’s issues is one of the most powerful social experiences a brand can
deliver. In the future social CRM should be a fundamental part of any brand’s communication strategy.
•
The consumer has many devices through which they can interact with a brand digitally but not all of these devices
are a suitable environment for every experience. Tablets and smartphones, for example, have very different
strengths. Marrying the right experience to the right device is key to creating a compelling social strategy.

What is Wave?
•
Wave is a social media study.
•
Wave has retained the same methodology from Wave 1 to Wave 6, enabling comparison across
Waves.
•
All research is conducted by the EMEA Research team in collaboration with the UM network of
agencies.
•
We have surveyed 41,738 16-54 Active Internet Users in 62 countries.
•
In Serbia we have covered active internet population from 16-54 y.o. , with 500 people within the
representative sample, covering 2,013,000 ( 28% of total population )
•
Our partner in this research in Serbia is the research company Mediana, who was responsible for
the field work and quality of sample
Why the Active Internet User?
•
Active Internet Users are those that use the internet every day or every other day.
•
Social media is driven by Active Internet Users.
•
They drive adoption of platforms and tools and they will determine which tools and platforms
become dominant.

Welcome to Wave 6 – The Business of Social
•
Social media remains at the top of the agenda for many brands. However, it is clear that as a medium for
marketers it’s still very much in its infancy. Popular measures of success, such as “Likes”, posts or Tweets, are no
more than proxies for other more meaningful brand objectives. In fact, by definition, setting these goals suggests
you may have already confined yourself to creating a one-dimensional social experience.
•
Perhaps this is one reason why so many social media strategies look the same, using familiar platforms in
familiar ways to achieve similar goals. With Wave 6 we intend to address this challenge. Wave 5 – The
Socialisation Of Brands told us that people want vastly differing social relationships with brands. Wave 6 – The
Business Of Social tells us what these social relationships can deliver for brands. Do they make people
want to spend more time with the brand, do they make them feel valued as customers, or do they encourage
people to recommend the brand to others?
•
Our research has revealed a deeply complex environment where different social experiences meet different
marketing objectives. An experience that drives brand advocacy in one category simply creates awareness in
another. An experience that encourages brand participation for one person does very little for someone else.
Knowing the value of an experience means we can build a social media strategy designed to meet a marketing
objective, rather than starting with how to exploit an existing social platform.
•
We believe this knowledge is vital if we are to make social media a legitimate platform for the development of
brands.

THE POWER
OF SOCIAL
The value of social experiences
•
A word that is frequently used in social marketing is ‘Engagement’, often when citing the
power of social media and the opportunity it brings for marketers. There is nothing wrong
with this; it’s a worthy ambition for a brand to try to engage with their consumers. The
problem is that engagement is essentially a meaningless term. It could mean
anything or everything and is really just used as a proxy for more meaningful brand
objectives. With Wave 5 – The Socialisation Of Brands we asked some fundamental
questions: do consumers want a social relationship with brands and if they do what kind
of relationship do they want? This information has allowed UM to guide clients in the
social space by understanding the needs of the consumer first and foremost.
•
With Wave 6 – The Business Of Social we have taken things a step further. Not just
understanding the social experience that consumers want but also, crucially, defining the
marketing value that these experiences can deliver to brands. This means we can not
only identify the right experiences but also those that best meet our marketing
objectives. The results of this research have truly been surprising and allowed us to
further understand the incredibly diverse world of social media. Also, in the space of
social CRM, the results have some profound things to say about how brands connect
with consumers to create the most compelling experiences of all.

The Power of Social Experiences
•
A key element for making the social network platforms accountable tools for marketers is
being able to evaluate the value they bring to brands. This effort begins with
understanding the intrinsic values of the social media platforms and the power of the
experiences they can deliver. Wave 6 – The Business Of Social has begun to answer
this question and now allows UM and Fastbridge to plan social strategies from the
starting point of brand or business objective. We think this is an important step towards
using social media in a more focussed and value driven way.
•
This approach also has implications for social CRM. Social media platforms, such as
Twitter, are incredibly powerful tools for customer feedback. Using them in pro-active
way to deal with problems very quickly is a proven and powerful driver of loyalty.
However, responding quickly isn’t always easy and many marketing teams require input
from many other areas of the organisation before dealing with a problem. This suggests
that a social media strategy should not just be the sole domain of the marketing
department, but rather part of a company wide effort including legal, PR, customer
support and others. This requires commitment and investment but our research has
shown that those brands that accomplish this will benefit greatly.

THE IMPACT:
SUMMARY
The impact: summary
•
Our research shows that social experiences can be very powerful, creating
strong connections with the consumer. However, it also shows that knowing this
is not enough. We also need to understand the value that these bring. These
experiences need not be complicated. The consumer is often the most powerful
advocate and ally of a brand: Wave 6 - The Business Of Social demonstrates
that even simply responding to a customer’s problems creates more loyalty and
advocacy than any reward programme could.
•
So do not spend time and investment on a social experience that you don’t
know it’s value of or doesn’t meet your brand’s challenges. It’s necessary to
look at both the consumer’s needs and your own objectives if you are to build
something that not only connects to the consumer but also helps build value for
your brand.
