  • Intelliseek : online WOM 14% more trusted than TV adsDo we know what is a bogus review? How do we know to trust it? Research has shown that we are more likely to trust a site that has some negative reviews than all positive reviews. People expect that others will not LOVE it all the time that makes it feel real and well….human. We start to smell a rat otherwise. Not about offline vs online word of mouth – they are complementary and should work together. 17

  • Building community will make WOM travel further and be sustained.Community is a sense of belonging, there is a higher purpose that people are building towards. People are not there to help the brand they are there to help each other. The community of review sites is very strong.Why do people write reviews on the website (when they become part of a community – they want to do it for the community). <number>
  • As community is breaking down in our offline lives it is building in our online lives.<number>
