Social Media – and the opportunities for your business.  Did you know….

  • Over 70% of the internet population use social networks – If your business is not out there engaging in social channels, you’re missing the most important conversations.
  •  36% of people have posted about a brand on social networks  – Customers are not going online simply to share what they had for dinner. They’re talking about the brands they buy, the products they use and the service they receive. Whether they say something good or bad is largely down to you.
  • The average number of Face Book contacts per user is 133 – on Twitter it is 59 – People know people. While the individual numbers are small, the six-degrees of separation rule shows how friends of friends can balloon these numbers. 288 connections on LinkedIn would give you a network of over 18,000 people. This demonstrates why it’s important to deliver outstanding customer support.
  • 61% of social networkers are willing to give feedback on a brands and products – Today, you don’t have to spend a fortune on focus groups to find out what your customers think of your products. Simply engage with them online and they’ll be more than happy to tell you.
  • 79% of consumers have passed on a negative experience and 82% of consumers will stop doing business with a company because of a negative experience – Your customers are no longer hesitant about contacting you over a social network. The corporate veil is shredding. Fundamentally, this means you must free your people to talk with customers in more direct, more human ways than ever before
  • Only 15% of social media users who posted a negative comment were contacted by the company that was mentioned – It’s astounding that so few companies actively try to engage when customers talk about their negative brand experiences. While some just don’t care, the more likely explanation is that they’re just not finding out in time. They’re not listening.
