  • In a time when people get bombarded by thousands of messages in a single day and consumer trust is waning, peer-to-peer recommendations are more important in affecting purchase intent and actual action.It’s about TRUST in like-minded individuals.Tribes of the mind.

    • 12. Traditional Media Intersects With Digital Media
      Blogs are a regular source for journalists
      Over 75% of reporters see blogs as helpful in giving them story ideas, angles and insight into the tone of an issue
      The biggest impact of blogs is in the speed and availability of news
      Over half said that blogs have a significant impact on the “tone” (61.8%) and “editorial direction” (51.1%) of news reporting
      Journalists are increasingly active participants in the blogosphere
      One in four reporters (27.7%) has their own blog
      Source: Ongoing research project by Brodeur in conjunction with Marketwire to understand the impact of social media and blogs on traditional news delivery.

      “I trust people like me”

      • It’s not about coverage. It’s about relationship-building and participating in the conversation.

      No measurement standard...yet
      It scales differently
      The big stories are based upon fear
      Not enough training
      Social media cannot be "controlled“
      Get beyond campaign-thinking
      Define the value through engagement
      Scale via tools and time
