Personal referrals typically have the greatest impact on a consumer’s purchasing decisions. According to a report by Nielson Media Research, 92% of consumers ask family or friends for a referral prior to making a decision to purchase a service or non-commodity product. As one can appreciate, consumers trust family and friends over strangers when weighing different purchasing options.
