Three important concepts

1. Volume of buzz is important but so is dispersion “ We’d never seen anything like this. The passion was there. The word of mouth was there.” –Marc Schiller The movie bombed “… simple counts are not sufficient. There is valuable information in the extent to which the conversations are taking place across heterogeneous communities…”* * Godes & Mayzlin “Using Online Conversations to Study Word-of-Mouth Communication.” Marketing Science 2004

“ We’d never seen anything like this. The passion was there. The word of mouth was there.” –Marc Schiller

The movie bombed

“… simple counts are not sufficient. There is valuable information in the extent to which the conversations are taking place across heterogeneous communities…”*

2. Customers who buy the most don’t always bring most referrals * Kumar et al. “How Valuable is Word of Mouth?” Harvard Business Review , October 2007 “ High-purchasing customers who say they’ll recommend your firm to others often don’t bother.” Promotion encouraged referrals and cross selling. ROI was around 15.4 times the cost

“ High-purchasing customers who say they’ll recommend your firm to others often don’t bother.”

Promotion encouraged referrals and cross selling.

ROI was around 15.4 times the cost

3. “Viral” is just part of the story * Watts & Peretti. “Viral Marketing for the Real World.” Harvard Business Review , 2007. Question: A viral campaign to help victims of hurricane Katrina had a much higher virality (0.769) than a viral campaign for P&G’s detergent Tide Coldwater (0.041). Which campaign reached more people? Answer: The Tide campaign because it had a much higher initial reach (960,954 people) than the Katrina campaign (7,064 people)

4. Advertising still matters What factor had the strongest relationship with the level of buzz in hundreds of CPG launches?* Advertising Increases the pool of potential buzzers Ads can simulate or stimulate buzz Help customers articulate why they like the product 17% of brand conversations refer to advertising (The Keller Fay Group) * Nielsen. Niederhoffer et al. “The Origin and Impact of CPG New-Product Buzz” J.of Advertising Research 2007 .

What factor had the strongest relationship with the level of buzz in hundreds of CPG launches?*

Advertising Increases the pool of potential buzzers

Ads can simulate or stimulate buzz

Help customers articulate why they like the product

17% of brand conversations refer to advertising (The Keller Fay Group)

Ethical issues “ We stand against shill and undercover marketing, whereby people are paid to make recommendations without disclosing their relationship with the marketer.” Word of Mouth Marketing Association Code of Ethics

Why you need to be proactive Even delighted customers can forget and run out of opportunities to talk about your brand. In one study, 30% of the negative word of mouth was about brands that have never been owned by those who talked about them.* Counterbalancing this constant trickle of negative comments with honest positive word of mouth is critical. * East, et al. “The relative incidence of positive and negative word of mouth” International J of Research in Marketing , 2007.

Even delighted customers can forget and run out of opportunities to talk about your brand.

In one study, 30% of the negative word of mouth was about brands that have never been owned by those who talked about them.*

Counterbalancing this constant trickle of negative comments with honest positive word of mouth is critical.
