3) Social Media buzz

Example of Social Media Influence
4) Word Of Mouth

The final trigger for the decision was word of mouth from a co-worker who is a health enthusiast. Knowing that he actually owned and used one, and having him endorse the product made me decide to buy not just one, but take advantage of the two-for-the-price-ofone deal offered in the infomercial.
