Online Collaboration: A B2B Case Study from cbanc

by Myers Dupuy – president, cbanc Network In the banking industry, every banker sits on their own personal gold mine of knowledge, best practices, policies, spread sheets, vendor experiences, etc. What if all of a sudden every banker got access to everyone else’s work? Imagine how much money they could save, benefitting from all the new ideas they would each have to improve their business – it would change the way everyone does their jobs. The playing field could finally be leveled for small and large banks alike. But that doesn’t happen, does it? The reasons are purely human nature: Between being too busy, leery of posting items on open discussion forums, protective of the time invested in a project, […]

Three New Case Studies

There are three new case studies housed here on Now Is Gone. The Gold Group brought is Five Lessons Learned from the SIGGART campaign, a social media effort revolving around eco-friendly water containers. I love case studies that feature hard numbers. Check this out: SIGGART drew more than 12,000 visits from about 8,000 people. Each visit was a whopping 17 minutes on average; compare with Nielsen’s most recent benchmark of 49 seconds per average U.S. web visit. In total, SIGGART was viewed for 204M user-minutes or, we’d like to offer, 204 mums. Lewis Green documented how blogging has benefited his business.

Corporate Social Media Links: Three New Case Studies

The Gates Foundation has been using a wide variety of social media tools to get the word out: Facebook, MySpace, YouTube videos. The goal: Change perception of Generation Y towards education issues for the forthcoming presidential election. The results?  More than 80K YouTube views, significant community development on Facebook and MySpace, and 4,000 information kits ordered. Kyle Flaherty brought us this Social Media Case Study: CMP’s TechMash. This was a micro campaign targeted at a very small community.  What I liked about it was that it used a variety of social media tools to produce an actionable result: with direct access to more than 100 people to attend the TechMash show next year. Kyle’s goal is to continue this effort and garner 400 by spring time. Yesterday, […]
