Word-Of-Mouth In 2021

Word-Of-Mouth In 2021

Service-based businesses have long relied on word-of-mouth marketing (WOMM) for growth. More than 90% of consumers trust recommendations from family and friends more than company advertising. WOMM reaches far beyond verbal referrals to the rapidly expanding digital marketplace. It’s essential to learn how word-of-mouth marketing works and harness its potential to maximize your online presence.

Digital WOMM includes reviews, testimonials, and other informal, user-generated content found on the internet. Without a proactive word-of-mouth marketing strategy, though, your business is at the mercy of whoever publishes an opinion about your service — good or bad. Fortunately, you can be intentional about influencing what current and prospective customers say about you through a variety of online platforms.
