  • Brand Awareness/ Engagement Social is more of an awareness and brand engagement medium--Meaning you begin to engage in conversation with the consumer via these channels then use sales escalation processes to convert Networking = WOM = Sales Standard marketing programs have a 3x positive pass along and a 7 time negative pass along.

With social media we can better manage and monitor both positive and negative brand conversations and work to influence these. http://www.frogloop.com/social-network-calculator
