Your Company Has A Social Graph

Every Company has a social graph: People you know and the people they know.

· Your customers and the people those persons know.

· Your vendors and the persons these people know.

· Persons you know who also serve your target audience in a different

way than you do.

· People you and your people know and the people they know. All of your employees may become promoters of your brand.Social Media Management

· Your social graph is a picture or diagram of this massive array of connection which leads back to you through people’s friendships.

For most companies there are four important revenue issues.

1. Keeping the customers they have.

2. Selling more products and services to the customers they have.

3. Generating word of mouth advertising.

4. Acquiring new customers.

THERE ARE MANY FINE COMPANIES TODAY.

They have done everything right for years but they are stepping out of the traditional mold and becoming what Clara Shih, the author of The Facebook Era, calls a “New Breed” of company: More nimble, more in touch, with greater reach, they out compete companies that use older technologies.

For the new breed of company there are two kinds of customers or clients.

1. Those who are connected via social technology (fans).

2. Those who are not.

On the average , fans spend $71.84 more non-fans..

On the average, fans are 28% more likely than non-fans to continue using the  brand.

On the average, fans and clients are 41% more likely than non-fans to recommend the product of service to others—word of mouth advertising. (see next page for source.)

Statistics based on an extensive study (glad to provide). The companies studied were: Nokia, BlackBerry, Motorola, Gillette, Axo, Dove, Victoria’s Secret, Adidas, Nike, Coca-Cola, Oreo, Skittles, Nutella, Red bull, Pringles, Playstation, Xbox, Starbucks, McDonalds. The most remarkable was McDonald’s where the average fan was worth $508.16 to 259.82. for $580,003,461-annualized. SYNCAPSE.COM

About Johnny Wyatt J3

As they say, one is known best by priorities he pursues. For me: Christ Follower first. Second, the people who call me Honey, Daddy, and Poppi at home. Third, the amazing folks who call me Boss at The J3 Effect. Finally my friends: my buds, clients and competitors. I collect friends, some of mine, the best a man could ever have. I love to learn and almost as much to write. I dig a mountain hike, with camera at the ready. Also high on the list, I enjoy a warm conversation, especially at some nearby coffee shack.
