Le bouche-à-oreille est un véhicule puissant en marketing et a fait l’objet de plusieurs de nos billets dans les dernières semaines (le billet sur les « brand advocates, celui sur les fournisseurs d’information ou encore celui sur les blogueurs comme communicateurs marketing).

C’est d’autant plus vrai aujourd’hui avec l’omniprésence des médias sociaux. Pour les sceptiques, ouvrez Facebook (ou Twitter) et parcourez votre fil de nouvelles.

Interview with Adair Witmer of The “W” Partners Similar Posts: Measuring the Stages of the Cyclic Social Media Marketing Funnel. What’s the payoff? The inescapable social media question that makes many squirm and continues to provoke much debate with little answer. There are really two issues here: 1) In order for something to be relevant in business, you must be able to demonstrate a positive, measurable outcome, and 2) the challenge with measuring most marketing endeavors is that they are done in isolation. Let’s take the second issue first … looking for an ROI from social media seems to be artificial.

Over the last couple of years groups such as the MIT Convergence Culture Consortium have recommended replacing the use of the term ‘viral marketing’ with ‘spreadable media’.

The main argument is that the viral metaphor has been stretched to try and explain any situation in which marketing content becomes popular and widely spread by an audience. The proponents of this view suggest “spreadable media” should be an alternative model for understanding how content is shared, and marketing videos and the like should be thought of not as a means of infecting audiences but rather as material that audiences can spread for their own purposes. All in all these are fair points, and they deserve the attention they have been given.
