To prevent a PR disaster, it is necessary to use an all-round alarm – Social Listening

The Mannings printing incident at the beginning of 2018 caused a public relations disaster, which I believe is still fresh in everyone’s memory. Facebook’s mishandling of the printing incident due to Mannings’ jurisdiction, coupled with the media’s fuel, detonated a huge brand crisis, and it was not until the CEO of Mannings issued an apology statement that it came to an end.

However, the long-publicized “Mannings Cat” has become a catchy “Dead Cat” by netizens, and the good image that has been built up in the past has been ruined. After that, the corporate brand is all soldiers, everyone is in danger, and they don’t want to become a new victim of a public relations disaster.

In fact, in order to prevent a public relations disaster that breaks out in an instant, it is necessary to have an alarm to remind the corporate brand that there is a crisis coming, so as to be foolproof and prepared.

Social Listening, on the other hand, is an all-around alarm on the Internet. It obtains huge data on the Internet through keywords, continuously listens to the public opinions, opinions, feelings, and evaluations of each user on the brand on all social networks, and then summarizes the trends of netizens as a reference for decision-making on the market development of the brand.

Before formulating an online market development project, the corporate brand must first ensure that it maintains a good image on the Internet, otherwise, shooting countless advertisements will only be exchanged for countless abuse.

Therefore, the most basic role of social media listening is brand protection, looking for any clues in the discussion of netizens, as long as there are any signs, you can be the first to know, and then deal with it neatly. If they do not keep up with the trend of public opinion among netizens, it will be difficult for corporate brands to cope with the sudden public relations crisis, or to strike first and stifle it in the cradle before the public relations crisis occurs.

Social media listening can also be effective, such as exploring the trends of other competitors (Brand Competitor) or industry development (Brand Industry). But if a PR disaster unfortunately happens, how can community listening help?

Brand protection first requires a group of keen listeners, even if it cannot prevent the outbreak of a crisis, but often after a disaster occurs, it enters the crisis management mode

Professional listeners will update the situation at regular intervals, and at the same time quickly find the source of the fire, understand the mentality of netizens, and discuss countermeasures. At this point, corporate brands need to fully trust the advice of their people to effectively turn crises into opportunities.

In the past, a company ignored the advice of the listeners and recklessly contacted a netizen after a public relations disaster, but it was clumsy and was screenshotted by netizens and attracted more netizens’ attention to the incident, which made the crisis even more out of control. Thankfully, they followed the listener’s approach and managed to fade the matter down and minimize the damage to the brand.

Nowadays, all kinds of public relations disasters are frequent, but as long as you believe in the almighty siren and handle the crisis properly, you can get the praise of netizens, turn the whole situation around, and get more positive attention because of the blessing in disguise.

今時今日,KOL是如何煉成的

今時今日,網紅的影響力可謂無遠弗屆,當他們在自己坐擁龐大的粉絲群的平台上推廣商品,往往能在瞬間做到一傳十、十傳百的效果,直接刺激產品的銷量,因此難怪廣告商會願意每年投放數以億計的費用贊助一些Instagram KOL及YouTube巨星,令營銷界上出現一種嶄新的網紅經濟。 正因為網紅行業有市有價,這亦造就了一些「教人如何成為KOL」專門學科的誕生。在中國,義烏工商學院(YWICC)近年便開設了一門「網紅系」的大學課程,專注孕育KOL。課程的內容非常廣泛,包括表演、化妝造型、公關禮儀、美姿美儀、舞蹈、台上貓步等等,而期終考試更加入「30秒擺出15個甫士」的考核部分。 不過,雖然如今這類KOL培訓課程已經愈來愈多,但其實孕育炙手可熱的KOL,卻不是想像中那麼容易,背後往往需要不少天時地利人和的配合。 例如韓國歌手PSY,縱然他在2014年憑著《江南Style》一曲一炮而紅,成為全球知名的網絡紅人,但其實他經歷了十多年的努力和嘗試,加上韓風效應、音樂上掌握大眾心理,才得到現在的成就。 至於香港有意躋身KOL界別的年輕人,雖然未必能完全借用PSY的成功伎倆,但若要成為網紅,賺取數以千計甚至數以萬計的網紅收入,不是沒有法則可循。關鍵是找出大眾喜愛而尚未普及的創作方向,持之以恆發展下去,吸引愈來愈網民的注意,並定期分析數據和作出改良,那麼成為出色的網紅也並非遙不可及。
