With the widespread use of Facebook, Twitter, and online review sites, everyone has a megaphone. Whether happy or disgruntled, one person can influence thousands in a genuine way that can’t be accomplished with traditional media.
As a business that cares about what its customers think, and wants to continually improve to meet their needs, this shift is great news for you. Social media allows you to join in the conversation, learn what people like (and hate), and win the loyalty of these high value customers.
Like any new form of communication, it has it's own rules. Authenticity, responsiveness, and consistency are key drivers of engagement when using social media. However, there are simple steps you can follow to take full advantage of the many ways social media can improve your business.
