  • 7.    For nearly 90 percent respondents, buzz and word of mouth are top deliverables from SM activities However, encouraging statistics shows organisations and brands are clearly moving towards a conversational path:  Over 65 percent respondents think SM can deliver insights  Over 61 percent think SM can build engagements  Over 46 hope to create better products & services SM is not a sales tool seems to have been understood by organisations. However, a lack of understanding of this basic SM rule could otherwise prove costly. © www.blogworks.in and www.exchange4media.com 7
