Trends
The Internet has become a mass media vehicle for
consumer-sponsored communications. It now
represents the number one source of media for
consumers at work and the number two source of
media at home.
Consumers demand more control over their media
consumption. They require on-demand and immediate
access to information at their own convenience
Consumers are turning more frequently to various
types of social media to conduct their information
searches and to make their purchasing decisions
Social media is perceived by consumers as a more
trustworthy source of information regarding
products and services than traditional corporatesponsored communications.
Implications
must accept the reality that a vast amount of
information about their products and services is being
communicated by individual consumers to other
consumers via social media forums.
consumers are responding to this information in ways
that directly influence all aspects of consumer behavior,
from information acquisition to post-purchase
expressions of satisfaction and dissatisfaction.
consumers are turning away from the traditional
elements of the promotion mix; in particular, they are
reducing their reliance on advertising as a source of
information to guide their purchase decision-making
Managers who are accustomed to exerting a high level
of control over company-to-consumer messages must
learn to talk with their customers, as opposed to
talking at them, therefore influencing the discussions
taking place in the social media space.

Shaping the Discussions

etc.

media tools to engage
customers
as they feel more engaged with
products and organizations when they

More ways to shape the discussions
5. Be outrageous
because people talk about things they
find to be somewhat outrageous.
7. Support causes that are
important to consumers
Because people tell others about things
to which they are emotionally
connected.
6. Provide exclusivity
8. Utilize the power of stories
because people like to feel special.
Feelings of being special can be
produced by offering products,
information, and special deals that are
available exclusively to a subset of
consumers.
Because stories can be memorable. The
more memorable they are, the more
likely they are to be repeated.
