I’m currently in London, but I do want to mention that we have released a new white paper, the first topic in a 3 part series. Below is taken from the mail we sent out earlier today. I will share more thoughts on this soon. In the meantime, do check it out.
Following the launch of the first Internet Word of Mouth (IWOM) analytics dashboard in China- IWOM master on June1, 2009, CIC is pleased to announce the release of our latest IWOM White Paper: “Making Sense of IWOM”: The Role of Internet Word of Mouth in Purchase Decisions. The white paper can be downloaded here.
The white paper is based on comprehensive qualitative and quantitative offline research conducted by CIC in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chengdu and reveals how netizens’ recommendations and opinions play a very important role in affecting the consumer purchase decision making process.
