The way people consume and share information is rapidly changing. Consumers now trust their peers and opinions posted online for advice about brands and their products or services. Consider these recent statistics that show the dramatic change in consumer behavior:
- 92% of consumers trust earned media, such as recommendations from friends and family, above all other forms of advertising
- 70% of global consumers trust consumer opinions posted online
What this means for marketers is an opportunity to tap into the power of your consumers to launch effective social media initiatives that can enhance your bottom line.
