Social Media A Must For Brands, But Needs A Strategy, Says Vision Critical Study

Social Media A Must For Brands, But Needs A Strategy, Says Vision Critical Study | Recruitment | Scoop.it

A comprehensive study from market research firm Vision Critical indicates just how important social media is (and will continue to be) for brands, especially when considering product sales. Called From Social to Sale: 8 Questions to Ask Your Customers, the report reveals — based on 6,000+ survey respondents — that consumers are often more likely to purchase items after seeing them and/or interacting with posts about them on the social media platforms Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

 

More specifically, “4 in 10 social media users have purchased an item online or in-store after sharing or favoriting it on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest,” according to the report. Additionally, it found that Pinterest is the site most likely to drive “spontaneous purchasing.”

 

An article about the report on Cantech Letter summarized some key findings, noting that “social media drives both in-store and online purchases in almost equal numbers. 38% of people who have liked, shared or commented on a product on Facebook have gone on to buy the product. And 43% of people who have favorited or shared a product on any social media platform ultimately purchased it. Facebook is still king in terms of volume, with 75% of respondents logging in daily, compared with 17% for Twitter and Pinterest.”...

A great reminder for Leaders and HR Departments everywhere.

Russ Bergeman's curator insight, October 11, 2013 1:35 PM

Retaining good and talented employees requires maximizing their full performance potential. This is not only good for employee retention, it is also good for the overall performance of the organization. 

 

This article makes some great points about why people leave organizations.

 

It all starts with establishing and communicating an organizational culture, then hiring people who fit into and will perpetuate the culture. This is only possible when leaders have a solid understanding of what motivates and what demotivates their people. Without this understanding, it is nearly impossible to get the most out of people.
