HOW TO SHOUT LISTEN SO YOUR USERS WILL ( And LISTEN so your users will SHOUT )


Slide 1


Slide 2

Neil Gaiman is great. This quote is great.


Slide 3

But here are the top 10 Google Searches in NZ in 2014. Not many have a ‘right answer’ for us to find.


Slide 4

When it comes down to it, we’re not truly in competition with Google, and we don’t need to make the comparison.

Slide 6

A LIBRARY MARKETING MANIFESTO


Slide 7

WE WILL BE COMMUNITY ORIENTATED


Slide 8

You hear this a lot. It’s important to realise this isn’t the economic definition of market orientated. We aren’t talking about the free market economy.


Slide 9

MARKET ORIENTATED: THE MARKETING DEFINITION

TERMINOLOGY MATTERS


Slide 13

TERMINOLOGY MATTERS


Slide 14

When we talk about being the heart of the community, we don’t mean the heart as in the centre. We mean the heart as in the vital organ which allows the other organs to function.

Slide 17

THE HEART IS NOT PASSIVE…


Slide 18

THE HEART IS USEFUL. Help get your community where they already want to go.


Slide 19

Does the way you’re useful have to be traditional library activity? Does the way you’re useful take priority over our ethics and values? Should we try and please everyone?


Slide 20

Does the way you’re useful have to be traditional library activity? NO Does the way you’re useful take priority over our ethics and values? NO Should we try and please everyone? NO


Slide 21

We can do whatever our community needs us to do… …UNLESS it conflicts with our values and ethics, in which case, no way. Fear-based librarianship never got us anywhere. We shouldn’t be trying to placate everyone. We should be trying to inspire passion.

Slide 23

WE WILL DO WHAT PEOPLE NEED BUT MARKET what they WANT


Slide 24

The three services your library offers which you think are most important


Slide 25

The three services your library offers which you think are most important The three services your library offers which your users value most


Slide 26

The three services your library offers which you think are most important The three services your library offers which your users value most


Slide 27

So where do you go from HERE?


Slide 28

So where do you go from Try and win them round to your way of thinking? HERE?


Slide 29

So where do you go from Try and win them round to your way of thinking? Continue to do what they need, but market what they WANT? HERE?


Slide 30

So where do you go from Try and win them round to your way of thinking? Continue to do what they need, but market what they WANT? HERE? Ask yourself: can they get what they want anywhere else?


Slide 31

So where do you go from Try and win them round to your way of thinking? Continue to do what they need, but market what they WANT? HERE? If you’re the only source of what they need, market the heck out of it!


Slide 32

OR IS THERE A THIRD WAY?


Slide 33

WE WILL CATER FOR LIBRARY NOVICES AND FOR LIBRARY EXPERTS


Slide 34

Digital Natives are:


Slide 35

Digital Natives are: 1) BORN AFTER 1980 2) INNATELY GOOD WITH TECHNOLOGY


Slide 36

Digital Natives are: 1) BORN AFTER 1980 2) INNATELY GOOD WITH TECHNOLOGY 3) NOT ACTUALLY A REAL THING


Slide 37

The digital native is a MYTHOLOGICAL BEAST (So too is the digital immigrant.)


Slide 38

“There is no evidence that there is a single new generation of young students entering Higher Education and the terms Net Generation and Digital Native do not capture the processes of change that are taking place.” Jones, Chris and Shao, Binhui (2011). The net generation and digital natives: implications for higher education. Higher Education Academy, York.


Slide 39

SO IF THE DIGITAL NATIVES IDEA DOESN’T HELP US UNDERSTAND PEOPLE’S USE OF THE NET, WHAT DOES?

Slide 41

VISITORS Use the internet like a tool to help them achieve a particular task. They complete the task and move on, usually leaving very little trace of themselves. RESIDENTS Use the internet more socially, to connect with people, and share / obtain information about life and work. There is an identifiable legacy to their online activity. DAVID WHITE


Slide 42

VISITORS (Perhaps the Library website or YouTube channel) RESIDENTS (Perhaps the Library Twitter or Instagram account) DAVID WHITE

Slide 44

LIBRARY NOVICES AND EXPERTS: a way of understanding our users based on how they interact (or not) with the services we offer.


Slide 45

LIBRARY NOVICES AND EXPERTS NOVICES Are new to the library’s services, or perhaps even completely unaware the library is relevant to their interests. They need simple messages to hook them in.


Slide 46

LIBRARY NOVICES AND EXPERTS NOVICES Are new to the library’s services, or perhaps even completely unaware the library is relevant to their interests. They need simple messages to hook them in. EXPERTS They already use the library’s services regularly and are familiar with most of what we have to offer. They can handle more complex ‘next-level’ information about what we do.


Slide 47

LIBRARY NOVICES AND EXPERTS: A CONTINUUM NOVICE EXPERT


Slide 48

LIBRARY NOVICES AND EXPERTS: A CONTINUUM FREE WIFI! Simple message NOVICE Entry level More detailed Complex / niche EXPERT


Slide 49

LIBRARY NOVICES AND EXPERTS: A CONTINUUM The 14 different ebook Licence types! FREE WIFI! Simple message NOVICE Entry level More detailed Complex / niche EXPERT Everyone can identify with free wifi, so that’s a useful thing to market to the library novices. But telling people right away about the many different ebook types will create ambiguity and get in the way of the message. First hook them in, THEN once they’re more informed you can move onto the next level of marketing.


Slide 50

EXPERT NOVICE AIM TO TURN YOUR NOVICES INTO EXPERTS… BUT CELEBRATE BOTH!


Slide 51

WE WILL KEEP THINGS SIMPLE


Slide 52

AMBIGUITY IS THE ENEMY of good communication!


Slide 53

We all know that JARGON is bad – that unexplained ACRONYMS are bad, and we know that overtly COMPLICATED language is to be avoided.


Slide 54

But so is OVERSHARING!


Slide 55


Slide 56

This feels like it should be good marketing. The Library does so much good stuff!


Slide 57

This feels like it should be good marketing. The Library does so much good stuff! But actually there’s too much information – people can’t grasp on to what is most relevant to them. It’s trying to shout to everyone, but not actually being heard by anyone.

Slide 62

Market one thing at a time.


Slide 63

WE WILL COORDINATE OUR MARKETING INTO CAMPAIGNS


Slide 64

PROMOTION ON ITS OWN ISN’T MARKETING


Slide 65

THE PROCESS STARTS WITH LISTENING


Slide 66

JUSTIN HOENKE


Slide 67

THEN GROUPING YOUR AUDIENCE INTO SMALLER SEGMENTS


Slide 68

IT ENDS WITH MEASUREMENT AND EVALUATION


Slide 69

AND IN THE MIDDLE THERE’S THE CAMPAIGN


Slide 70

What is a campaign? The same message, tailored across different platforms, for a concerted period of time.


Slide 71

Campaigns aim high. You should aim to CHANGE BEHAVIOUR and be able to measure that change!


Slide 72

CAMPAIGNS PROVIDE THE HOOK


Slide 73

ALISON CIRCLE


Slide 74

If your campaign is about library spaces, measure the difference in the use of the space. If your campaign is around an electronic resource, measure the difference in the use of the resource.


Slide 75

It’s not about how many followers you have on social media, it’s about the ACTIONS they take.


Slide 76

It’s not about how many followers you have on social media, it’s about the ACTIONS they take. WHAT DO YOUR USERS DO THAT THEY WOULDN’T DO IF THEY DIDN’T FOLLOW YOU?


Slide 77

So you have to aim high. Reach for the stars!


Slide 78

REMEMBER, YOUR MARKETING NEEDS TO GET A GROUP OF PEOPLE TO DO SOMETHING THEY WEREN’T PREVIOUSLY GOING TO DO…


Slide 79

So how do you SHOUT so your audience will listen? CALLS TO ACTION


Slide 80

WE WILL BE COMMUNITY ORIENTATED CALLS TO ACTION


Slide 81

WE WILL BE COMMUNITY ORIENTATED CALLS TO ACTION We’ll go where the people are We will converse rather than broadcast We’ll be the vital organ that empowers our community We will listen, and we will act swiftly on what we hear


Slide 82

WE WILL DO WHAT PEOPLE NEED BUT MARKET WHAT THEY WANT CALLS TO ACTION


Slide 83

WE WILL DO WHAT PEOPLE NEED BUT MARKET WHAT THEY WANT CALLS TO ACTION We will not dumb down, or try to ape the practices of corporate business. We’ll continue to provide what people need. But we’ll focus on the comms on what they’re most passionate about


Slide 84

WE WILL CATER FOR LIBRARY NOVICES AND LIBRARY EXPERTS CALLS TO ACTION


Slide 85

WE WILL CATER FOR LIBRARY NOVICES AND LIBRARY EXPERTS CALLS TO ACTION We’ll focus on the introductory messages to get people through the door (physical or virtual) THEN give them the wider array of our services once they’re here


Slide 86

WE WILL KEEP THINGS SIMPLE CALLS TO ACTION


Slide 87

WE WILL KEEP THINGS SIMPLE CALLS TO ACTION We’ll market one thing at a time, using the most relatable and clear language and imagery possible. We’ll get rid of anything that isn’t vital to telling our story.


Slide 88

WE WILL COORDINATE OUR MARKETING INTO CAMPAIGNS CALLS TO ACTION We’ll give people a number of hooks, and spread the same message across multiple platforms, subtly tailored for each audience. We’ll measure what we do, and tweak it for next time.
