The Web 2.0 marketing techniques that work best to build relationships with customers are blogs, videos and social networking. That’s the latest from Measuring the Business Effects of Web 2.0 , which is McKinsey data graphed by eMarketer.
Web 2.0 Marketing That Works
The consulting firm McKinsey reports:
”When it came to customer-related benefits, blogs were the most useful tool, bringing measurable benefits to 51% of responding companies worldwide. That was followed by video-sharing and social networking, at 48% each, and RSS feeds [blog and news subscriptions], at 45%.
Note that they are counting companies which report at least one measurable benefit from the technique.
Microblogging [read Twitter for business] is down at 21%, compared to blogs for business and videos for business up near 50%. This means to me that it’s relevant content that really builds customer relationships.
I’d like to hear more about the RSS stat. Few clients of my nonprofit, SCORE Chicago, have even heard of RSS feeds, let alone use them to access information.
