As of Q1 2016, there are 433M registered users of the biggest professional networking site on the planet, LinkedIn. Are you one of them? Are you making the most of word of mouth (WOM) marketing? Did you know;
• 91% of B2B buyers are influenced by WOM when making their decision
• 61% of people first learn of a product or service online and 50% of consumers compare products or services online (Google)
• WOM can improve marketing effectiveness by up to 54%
• 81% of marketers have integrated social media marketing with traditional marketing (source: Socialmediaexaminer)
There is no denying the opportunities for business development through WOM but trading on your reputation should not be your only tactic. Having a strong digital / social media presence is essential in capturing business from people who don’t know you yet.
That said, you may (like most marketers) struggle with answering these 5 questions:
Q. What are the best social media tools?
Q. How do I find my target audience?
Q. What engagement strategy do I use?
Q. What are the most effective tactics?
Q. How do measure ROI?
