Power of Word of Mouth

  • “Person like me” still most trusted source for information about a company and, therefore, products. (Edelman Trust Barometer, November 2007)
  • Recommendations from family and friends trump all other consumer touchpoints when it comes to influencing purchases, according to ZenithOptimedia. (AdAge, April, 2008)
  • Recommendation is the number one reason for choosing a particular site. (Royal Mail’s Home Shopping Tracker Study, September 2007)
  • Users who contribute product reviews or post messages visit sites nine times as often as noncontributors do. Contributors also make purchases nearly twice as often. (McKinsey & Co./Jupiter Media Metrix study, January 2002)
