this is a presentation I gave at Marktplein 2.0 in which I challenged the perspective that WOM was something "new". In stead of talking about "conversations" all the time, marketers should just "get on with it" and start structurally building relationships with customers beyond the P of promotion.

    2. The central theme for Marktplein DM is Marktplein 2.0: A little less action, a little more conversation . A theme that comes from the current developments in DM and online. The consumer is ever more in charge. Only he seldomly talks with the companies he buys from. And ever more with others about the brands he buys. Positive and negative. During Marktplein 2.0: A little less action, a little more conversation you will hear stories from companies who recognise this new situation and act upon it. FUTURE LAB From the conference brochure
