Word of mouth advertising is one of the oldest, but most effective forms of advertising. Simply put, it is the means of one person telling another person something about your business. It has always been one of the most powerful tools to have as an advertising medium. Ask yourself, are you more interested in listening to what a commercial has to say or what your best friend has to say? Who is more believable?
As a business, part of your advertising plan should focus on word of mouth advertising. But in the world of today, word of mouth advertising is not just one person telling another of a product, as in one woman telling another woman about a product they love. Rather, there are many online and offline methods for delivering a word of mouth experience.
In an ideal world, the tremendous amount of time, money, and energy you spend in building a great business; educating your audience about it; attracting them to your company; and finally turning them into paying customers would be rewarded by a long, profitable relationship between you and the newly-acquired customer(s).
But this is not that world, is it? You know that customer relationships are far from ideal.
