Dig Festival was an amazing 2 days, here’s a snapshot:

#DiGFestival #colcons being discussed in the context of the collaborative consumer – this is a very important shift in behaviour that will affect business models everywhere!

#DiGFestival Interesting question for businesses – they may want to co-create with consumers but consumers may want to co-create with other consumers – not businesses.

#DiGFestival gr8 preso from Newcastle Uni’s Tom Chen on The Collaborative Customer .

#DiGFestival co-creative consumers are called Value Initiators – this is a good term to help better understand how to engage them.

#DiGFestival Engaged Experience – the outcome of experience sharing.

#DiGFestival good eg of Vanish engaging the customer to find out how they use the product in ways not intended or expected – co creating further content and product development

#DiGFestival Businesses need a macro environment to create the need to co-create.
