Peeling the layers back from Social Business Evangelism #socialbusiness #lotusknows
   

The Social Business tone has been set post Lotusphere and we have approximately 6,000 people (LS11 attendees) evangelizing “social business”. The focus is clear by IBM Software and it’s Get Social, Do Business. In creating opportunity within your organization for social business, what products or services are you thinking considering?  Meaning, for those of us in sales, what products are you selling for social business? For those at the line-of-business, what products are you considering for your organization to set forth a social business agenda? And if you are not considering a social business agenda for your organization, why?

I pose these questions because at the heart of Social Business are people and behavior. It is human behavior around being social that often dictates the adoption of social software.  Whether driven by connecting with people, marketing, sales, or just creating visibility, being social online means understanding your own feelings around being social with people.  Are you ready?

The tools that mainstream have adopted for social business are LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and a few others.  Within the enterprise, Lotus Connections is IBM’s offering for social networking inside and outside the firewall.  As a Social Business Evangelist myself, I see real value in tearing down the walls and becoming an open organization with free-flowing communication channels that enable innovation and a social culture within an organization thus equating to overall business value.  As a business leader responsible for revenue growth, I’m challenging myself from the point of view of the customer to consider what would I actually pay for to become a “social business”. Are you ready to be socially connected online with your colleagues and customers?  IBM has tools and have had them for years under the umbrella of “collaboration”.  What social tools are on your radar?
