1. Understand where and how your brand, and your competitors’ brands, are talked about and recommended
2. Articulate your shareable story in simple, conversational language, with a clear, single call to action
3. Ensure everyone in your business is aligned, aware and uniformly using it
4. Discover and activate your micro-influencers, those people whose recommendations influence purchase decisions

6. Neutralise the detractors, monitor traction of detracting messages and understand the reach before engaging with the detractor
7. Measure progress with clear KPIs, monitor and assess, continuously tune and improve
8. Share the success across the business and repeat
