The most informed buyer is one who can access the experienced-based knowledge of his or her peers. That’s the message of my podcast with George Krautzel, co-founder and president of ITtoolbox. George and his team have just released a new survey on the adoption of social media in cooperation with PJA Advertising and Marketing.
Some of the results might surprise you:
– IT decision makers spend on average 3.5 hours per week consuming or participating in social media.
– IT decision makers reference vendor websites more than user-generated content for making purchasing decisions, but trust user-generated content more than either vendor websites or editorial publications.
This is fantastic news. To hear more just listen to our podcast…
