WORD OF MOUTH MARKETING COMES OF AGE


Wired.com notes that, later this month, hundreds of corporate and ad agency executives will come together for what may well be the first conference devoted to word-of-mouth marketing. Wired adds:
"That a conference is being held on such a topic -- not to mention that there are now multiple trade associations for word-of-mouth marketing and its cousin, viral advertising -- is testament to the rapid growth and success of these forms of advertising, which until recently were the province of a very few maverick practitioners. "Every company we've spoken to already has somebody working on this," said Andy Sernovitz, CEO of the Word of Mouth Marketing Association, or WOMMA. "It's called different things -- viral, buzz, customer satisfaction. But in the four months since we started, we've got 60 corporate members, and 3,000 people on our mailing list."
If word of mouth is such an effective means of communication, the IPKat wonders, why does WOMMA need a mailing list?

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
