Word of Mouth Igniting the Buzz
Viral marketing is a powerful tool. Think about it. How many times today have you forwarded news, articles and even jokes to a co-worker or friend? A report released by Sharpe Partners found that 89% of US adult Internet users share content with friends, family and associates by email and they do it frequently. The study reported that 63% of the respondents share content at least once a week, and 25% share daily or most days. In addition, 75% of the content that is forwarded is sent to at least six other recipients. What every you call it —word of mouth, buzz or viral marketing — having other people tell your story can drive sales and profits. One person sends it to a friend, then that person sends it to her family and then yet another sends it to a co-worker, and on and on.
