We'll give you all the online tools you'll need to create your own Blog site or add Commenting or Forums to your web site.
People are much more likely to reach for their wallets when encouraged to do so by like-minded individuals who have provided online feedback. It is a 'safer' buying experience when you know someone else before you took the plunge and gave positive feedback on the product or service.
A quote from Time Magazine online: “In fact, brands are noticing that online communities have more buying persuasion power than store sales clerks. And they're forming more partnerships with social sites now that traffic numbers are at an all-time high. In October 2007, Kaboodle had nearly 3 million unique monthly visitors. By October 2008, it tripled that number to 10.8 million and also logged its highest numbers for revenue, traffic and registered users.”
Keeping this in mind, it can be extraordinarily beneficial to inject some of that Web 2.0 community flavor into the shopping experience of your web site. Some simple ways that we can help: offer customer reviews; allow commenting and rating of products; showcase a customer service pro as a personal connection in case of shopping questions or concerns; create a members’-only section with special discounts or other valuable offers.
