Social networking has transformed how people shop forever. With over 500 million Facebook users, 140 million Tweets per day and over 2 billion views on YouTube daily - access to this “new” community of shoppers brings tremendous opportunity.
The average Facebook user has 130 friends - if one person 'Likes' your brand and shares your product you are now introduced to 130 new potential consumers who each have their own 130 friends. The returns become exponential.
When asked what sources "influence your decision to use or not use a particular company, brand or product" 71% claim reviews from family members or friends exert a "great deal" or "fair amount" of influence.
