Your socially engaged consumers spend more

 New research shows consumers who engage with companies using social media spend up to 30% more than consumers that don’t.

The same research from Bain & Company, suggests they are also more loyal and emotionally connected than customers who are not socially engaged. Bain demonstrated this by looking at the Net Promoter Score (NPS) of customers – the NPS score was 33 points higher for the socially engaged consumer.

To some extent this isn’t surprising – the NPS score of a consumer socially connected to a brand is skewed by a self-selection bias. A consumer chooses to ‘follow’ or ‘fan’ a brand because they have some interest or affinity with it already, indeed they might be a loyal consumer. Other research shows that the main motivation for following or liking a brand on social media is to get the latest information and deals.

Nonetheless, this is useful data when trying to make the business case for increasing investment in social media.
