But, few researcher believe that Social media is dying. Trust factor has reduced from 45 to 25% on SM. Only bestest, cheapest and different will survive because other shop + customer is browser away!!
Why CIL sites good for SM integration? 1) 90% unique visitors, so higher returns per customer. 2) Visitor's lifetime value is too low (Avg 1 Rs/visit) - SM integration could boost this. 3) Very Generic sites - Could easily develop theme based pages and increase ROI on Social Media. 4) Static web 1.0 pages - Need to jump on web 3.0 quickly. SM integration is fast and best in this. 5) Static, outdated, SEO specific content on site - Sm integration could increase user generated and user controlled fresh content. 6) Too good in building traffic , we could easily cannibalize to build Social Media Life time Customers.
