WoM-Marketing – Strengthening Recommendations

Consumers are confronted with up to 5000 advertising messages1 per day. Most people are incapable of absorbing and processing that many, or otherwise view the advertising message as being non-credible. In the face of this turn to other sources of product information: 90% of consumers trust the product recommendations of friends and acquaintances, 70% believe the opinions of other consumers on the internet2 and  a third (31%)3 of consumers indicate that the opinions of other users on the internet influence their purchase decisions. With our Word-of-Mouth concepts, we offer the implementation of an effective communication strategy and apply the mechanisms of multilevel interpersonal communication. The flow of communication among consumers occurs via social chains of communication, from a brand as the communicator to selected opinion formers.


We offer the following benefits for our clients with our Word-of-Mouth campaigns:

  • Clear identification and recruitment of the target group with our market research Know-How,
  • Integration of market research questions during a campaign,
  • Measurability of the campaign’s contact quality, reach and efficiency by means of various Key Performance Indicators,

  • A traceable increase of the Purchase Intention and Endorser Value of the Opinion Former and the persons to whom a product is recommended,
  • The opportunity to carry out effective campaigns with a limited advertising budget,
