How Starbucks used fan feedback to help launch VIA — live with Matthew Guiste

We’re bringing together an all-star group of word of mouth marketers for Word of Mouth Supergenius: The “How to be Great at Word of Mouth Marketing” Conference on December 16 in Chicago. We’ll feature 12 how-to classes, 12 real-world case studies, and 6 brilliant authors. You’re going to learn practical, hands-on techniques to get people talking about you the next day.

Our lineup of speakers includes word of mouth supergenius and Starbucks Social Media Manager, Matthew Guiste. Here Matthew shares a few tips on using fan feedback based on the Starbucks case study he’ll be presenting:

  • Think long-term sustainability. When building your program, think about your communities and the actions you’re encouraging your fans to take in an ongoing manner.
  • Fans and brands need the same goals. Starbucks works to create things that make both the company and the community feel like they’ve done something together.
  • Just ask. Matthew and his team regularly ask their community of followers what they are interested in and then try to deliver on that.
