Claire Myerscough, business intelligence director at News International, believes that with the help of TouchPoints3 (which now includes WOM data), 2010 will see WOM become a big planning consideration for the first time. In April, Myerscough wrote an interesting article explaining why advertisers are more likely to take note of WOM now that more research is available. “We consumers naturally place great value on the opinions of those that we trust and consider to have similar needs and desires as us (or indeed those who we aspire to be like),” she said. “Recently published research now shows that recommendations from family and friends trump all other touch points when it comes to influencing purchases.” – News International

Keller Fay’s TalkTrack findings are helping marketers move out of the anecdotal era of WOM, and finally uncovering what occurs in all types of conversations (not just online).

We at Hyundai received great value from Keller Fay’s Word of Mouth Workshop. The Keller Fay team engaged our senior marketing representatives and key agency personnel in a session that was both fact-filled and creative. The workshop made us more focused on the importance of consumer word of mouth and more organized in our efforts to build stronger word of mouth. Keller Fay’s analysis and insights were powerful and actionable, and included a number of important findings that we have not seen in other research. We look at Keller Fay as the experts in the word of mouth space. – Justin Osborne, National Manager, Brand Strategy & Development, Hyundai

For the last few years we have been frustrated by the limited, biased, and even negative “buzz” documented on the web. TalkTrack has opened up a powerful new option by unlocking the majority of dialogue enabling us to truly “listen” to American consumers. This has provided a clearer, more complete picture of what the majority are talking about – how they feel about our brand, the context in which they speak about our brand, and insights into emerging trends. – Artie Bulgrin, SVP Research and Sales Development, ESPN
