A Little Less Conversation

Futurelab
Futurelab

This is a presentation Alain Thys gave at Marktplein 2.0 in which he challenged the perspective that WOM was something "new". Instead of talking about "conversations" all the time, marketers should just "get on with it" and start structurally building relationships with customers beyond the P of promotion.

From the conference brochure

      The central theme for Marktplein DM is Marktplein 2.0: A little less
      action, a little more conversation. A theme that comes from the
      current developments in DM and online. The consumer is ever
      more in charge. Only he seldomly talks with the companies he buys
      from. And ever more with others about the brands he buys. Positive
      and negative.

      During Marktplein 2.0: A little less action, a little more conversation you
      will hear stories from companies who recognise this     new situation
      and act upon it.

Word-of-mouth is 7x more effective than newspaper
advertising, 5x stronger than a personal sales pitch and 2x
as effective as radio advertising

After 52 years of facts and research stating that WOM is key




    … do marketers still need to learn how to deal with it
