  • The social space is first and foremost about people and relationships. Technology and platforms come and go.
  • If control of the brand no longer resides completely in the hands of the brand itself, what are the guideposts to help brands join the conversation? To answer this, we looked at how consumers are influenced by social media as they move through the marketing funnel. When asked how certain sources influence respondents in the awareness, consideration, & action phases of marketing a purchase, respondents consistently attribute strong to heavy influence to word of mouth from known peers, both online and offline. In terms of brand perception during the awareness phases, independent blogs play a moderately influential role, trailing peer influencers by 31 percent. Interestingly, user-generated content from social influencers was just about as influential as corporate blogs. But as we move toward the action phase – when a purchase is about to e be made – influence from known peers asserts a substantial lead position. Independent blogs form key influencers exhibit little sway during the purchase phase, and branded corporate blogs exert almost none.
  • On the left is Best Buy’s more traditional digital presence in the form of its website and a display advertisement. On the right is the CMO’s blog which as you can see from the image is more personal and casual. Below that is his Twitter feed which includes personal replies. And at the bottom is another Best Buy employee’s Twitter account.
