What does your site search mean for your reputation?

Biznology

Some of you might believe that site search is important to raise your conversion rates and what to make search work.

Oracle

Influencer marketing is like word-of-mouth on steroids: people trust influencers just as much as their friends and family, but influencers have a lot more reach than individual customers. According to McKinsey, influencer marketing campaigns bring in $6.50 for every dollar spent, and twice the sales of paid advertising. So how come only 15 percent of B2B companies are doing influencer marketing today, compared with 55 percent of B2C?

Last January, Uber declined to participate in an organized taxi strike amidst the immigration ban protests at JFK airport. In fact, the company even turned off surge pricing to and from the airport. But instead of leading to a quick boom in business, the move upset consumers. In a matter of days, Uber lost 200,000 customers, and people were boycotting the brand on Twitter with #DeleteUber. Surge pricing has been turned off at #JFK Airport. This may result in longer wait times. Please be patient.
