  • We believe that buying has changed forever.Not that long ago, there were few 3rd party sources of information – information scarcity – which meant that a buyer had to get most of their information from sales. It also meant we lived in a world of attention abundance, with fewer channels competing for a buyer’s attention. But now, there is an explosion of readily available information— so much that 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone.All this data = buyers today are more empowered. The Web provides them with instant information gratification. They can access detailed specs, pricing, and reviews about goods and services 24/7 with a few flicks of their thumbs. Meanwhile, social media encourages them to share and compare, while mobile devices add a wherever/whenever dimension to every aspect of the experience. Result: Forrester Reports that 65-90% of buying process is complete when consumer walks into store/branch/dealer, or contacts sales. This translates to an organizational power shift from Sales to Marketing, and a corresponding responsibility shift to Marketing for a much greater share of the buying cycle.All this requires deep changes in how we market.
  • add slide before – three kinds of advocates giving context
  • website traffic, sign up and buy
  • Our average, an advocate participates once per month and engages 5 fans or followers with each action. Using 144 as the average number of fans/followers, the total potential reach of for any 1 advocate over a 12 month period is is 10,368. Multipled by 1000 (the average size of a successful consumer advocacy program), the average consumer advocate marketing program can reach over 10.3MM of your customers' friends/fans/followers over a 12 month period. We can tailor the content that we provid advocates to share so that when their audiences click-through, we send them to the desired environment: website homepage, special offers, purchase funnel, Facebook page, etc.
