The Fish Firm's curator insight, September 14, 2013 12:12 PM

The internet has radically changed the relationship between customers and businesses. This has forced especially small businesses into a new space where ‘business as usual’ must be done differently in order to get discovered, connect with customers and run effective promotions.

As we’ve been visiting with small businesses, we’ve found that most are using social media to connect with customers. But at the same time, most are unaware of the power online communities, that include a combination of Social, Local and Mobile media, can play in today's consumer’s purchase decisions.

This stat proves this to be true: "Peer recommendations drive sales. 70% of consumer said they were influenced by a friend or family member’s online recommendation, beating out in-person recommendation (61%), online articles (59%), ads (49%), or someone they follow online but don’t know (32%)"

Preschool isn't just about school.
Jennifer Dodge - CCRC executive director's insight:

Here’s the real kicker: Most of these life achievements have demonstrable economic value, either to the individual or to society. They’re also mutually enhancing. Every extra year of school, for example, can be correlated with additional income, lower levels of incarceration and less dependence on welfare. By linking the data in these early childhood education studies with other kinds of data, economists have been able to account for the costs and benefits of these kinds of programs. They are very clear.

Igor Tishkin's curator insight, October 3, 2013 3:19 AM

В статье приводятся примеры, кейсы, как представители малого бизнеса находят клиентов в социальных сетях.

 

Например, вот Эвола, 33, терапист, которая нашла клиентов в соцсетях:

en Evola, 33, a massage therapist and a registered dietitian, needed a boost after she left a corporate job to start her own practice in Chicago.

She got it from social media.

 

А вот Барнес, 49, который запустил трэвел-бизнес и обнаружил клиентов в социальных сетях.

 

Tom Byrnes, 49, an entrepreneur from Ireland, started Fun Packs, a company that makes travel entertainment toys for children. Byrnes says he's doubled his business since he started using social media.

 

Как же им это все удается? Неужели группы Вконтакте и Facebook приводят им столько клиентов, что они довольны и счастливы? Почему же в России это не работает?

 

Потому что, как минимум, они вели персональный блог и постили ссылки в соцсети. А не в группы.

 

A recent survey by HubSpot, a marketing software company, reports that 52% of marketers have found leads through Facebook so far in 2013, and 43% of marketers have found customers through LinkedIn and company blogs.

 

Я уверен, что корпоративный блог - это SMM, а не ведение групп в Вконтакте. Кто со мной поспорит? В комменты плз.
