Stone age to digital age – have people really changed?
Man is a social being – thanks to this inherent nature, people have always thrived in their communities. Right from Stone Age, society always preceded individuals and people were never self-sufficient, without the underlying societal fabric. Social interactions have formed the basis for values, norms and rituals, and in turn, the human society.
Now, in the digital age, we can get a world view of things, find like-minded people and socialize with them, in a slightly different way though – leveraging social platforms. We live by mountains of information, but yet are utterly confused, when it’s time to decide. Nevertheless, inherent social nature of people remains the same, irrespective of the age you are in.
Whether buying a car or going on a vacation or doing Christmas shopping, you do your basic research first. Then you build on it, filter out unwanted options, freeze on probable list and finally choose the best option. Throughout this process, the one indispensable aspect is talking to “people” you trust (friends, family, social circles and colleagues) – for their opinions, suggestions, etc. And you end up doing this time and again, because “people trust people”, owing to their very social nature.
92% of consumers “believe in recommendations from friends and family” over all other forms of advertising (Nielsen).
77% of consumers are “more likely to buy a new product when learning about it from friends or family” (Nielsen).
64% of marketing executives believe “word-of-mouth is the most effective form of marketing” – WOMMA (Word of Mouth Marketing Association).

Big insights from Right Data, Not Big Data ;-)
“Garbage In, Garbage Out!” Rings any bells for you? Let us make it easy for you – when you ask a computer to derive the correlation between “feet size” of people and their “IQ levels”, it’ll throw the relationships, trends, etc. at you, depending on the data you feed into it. You are Right! This is of No Use, at the end of the day.
We, at TechSophy, have always believed in the quality of information at hand. In order to take decisions that make a difference, you need “right data”, only which can give you the right picture. Nonetheless, you need to time your decisions right, in order to make a handsome buck – again backed by “right data”.
