HOW FACEBOOK AND PINTEREST HAVE PAVED A PATH FOR RICH CONSUMER INSIGHT
There is a special connection that is created from understanding your customers and speaking to them on a personal level. It starts with consumer insights…what drives the strategy throughout the branding process. Remember when the Got Milk campaign increased awareness of the nutritional value of milk and how Dove beauty products broke through the mold with their honest representation of natural beauty?
Consumer insight is at the forefront of every successful advertising campaign and social media provides advertisers with a new way to learn how people interact, react and live with products on the market.
The popularity of Pinterest and Facebook has paved a path for rich consumer insights.
Given the interactive interface to pin their favorite dresses, cocktails and cooking recipes, Pinterest is more popular among the female market but men are joining in. Marketers can gauge how their audience interacts with promotions, give-a-ways and other internet “souvenirs” and “memorabilia” that users showcase on the site. It’s a social platform for people to share their thoughts and opinions and monitoring tools like Radiant6 can dig deeper to reveal the juicier insights.
