Week 2: The Social Feedback Cycle

Viewed in the context of the classic purchase funnel, media spending is directed largely toward awareness, where it drives demand, and the point of sale, affirming pending purchases or shifting them to a competing brand. What’s been missing is direct access to the consideration phase that sits between the two.
