Consumers Buy from Brands They Follow on Social Media: Sprout Social Report
Hi, it’s Jamie, Senior Intern at the CDP Institute Department of the Obvious. I’m fine and the gruel supply is stable. Coronavirus does seem to have reduced the flow of obvious research, but I’ve hoarded some to share.

Almost as obvious: consumers want engagement, transparency, and service more than anything else, while marketers overestimate consumers’ interest in memorable content, storytelling, and pop culture references.
