What is Word of Mouth?

Word of mouth definition: There are many ways that brands can leverage word of mouth marketing. Typically using one (or a combination of) of these three tactics:

  1. Foundational: create a good enough product that people want to share
  2. Managed: create campaigns that promote word of mouth
  3. Referral: create a scheme that rewards users for sharing

Word of mouth is a powerful tool for marketers because it takes advantage of psychological triggers – such as social proof – that influence decision making.

For example:

LA Fitness provide their members with day passes and encourage them to train with friends so that they will ask their friends to come along and try their gym.
