Foster Consumer Conversations Today for Sales Tomorrow

It appears that a significant percentage of sales are being driven by consumers' "social conversations" that take place both offline and online according to a study released recently by Engagement Labs.

The report, conducted in conjunction with Koen Pauwels, Professor of Marketing at Northeastern University and BI Oslo, revealed that an estimated 19 percent of consumer sales are driven by offline and online social conversations. The report also found that between $7-10 trillion in annual consumer spending is motivated by consumer conversation (online social media made up half of the measured social contribution to sales, while offline word-of-mouth contributed to the other half).

The Engagement Labs report revealed another interesting insight that a little social improvement can result in big gains. The report revealed by improving social performance by as little as 10 percent, the brands analyzed in the study could realize a two percent increase in sales and large improvements in profit margins.
