If you are interested in Digital & Social Strategy you’ll want to bookmark 25mins to watch this video (or flip through the Slideshare pres below), it’s the keynote presentation by Alexandra Wheeler (Digital Director of Starbucks) that opened the recent Social Media Influence 2010 conference in London. And for those of you who don’t know, Starbucks was the first consumer brand to reach 10 Million fans on Facebook… you thought it was coke right?

Starbucks are arguably the worlds leading social marketers having been ranked #1 in online engagement, #1 on Facebook and the #1 Tweeted brand (until OldSpice came along I’d say!), this presentation by Alexandra provides insights on how Starbucks paved their way through social and the creative opportunities that it brings through empowering fans and helping the global community. One of the key points I pulled out of this presentation is around the importance of the content surrounding the conversation, lots of people preach it’s all about the conversation, but let’s not forget that being able to back that up with tailored, meaningful or fun content is what helps to complete the experience…
