Everyone loves a sudden response. And if you combine ‘friendly/easy’ attitude with it, it’s the recipe for success. With the unprecedented growth of social media, it has become easier for companies to offer top notch customer support/service to all the users/customers. Social media presence is no more just an option for any consumer companies. If I am not wrong, it has already become the most favorite medium for communication between B2C.
Once you’re already on social media, what next? Creating a loyal customer base is the key. You need to build a crowd that loves you & have the capability to give you revenue in return.
It’s something that takes a lot of effort, but it’s certainly gettable. Here are a few points which will help you in doing so:
Show Your Human Side
People tend to interact more with real human beings rather than interacting with a robot. Show these qualities to generate more interest:
- Bring out your humorous self
- Have a personality, but be honest
- Use visually rich content
- Be a good listener
Engage With Your Audience
Involving the crowd as much as you can, is always helpful. Here are a few ways of doing it:
- Ask for suggestions, feedback
- Build mutually benefiting relationship
Two-way communication is the most effective mode of engagement. And it’s exactly what you should aim for. Here’re a few things that will help:
- Be pro-active
- Take criticism in a good spirit
- Join in conversations
- Mention/engage your influencers
Be Open Minded
The world is totally becoming a more open environment with every passing year. And it’s so old-fashioned to just think about yourself now. Here’s what you should do:
- Broaden your focus area
- Curate contents (but give the source a mention)
- Be helpful to everyone
- Promote your influencers
While the above points may not guarantee you success, they certainly can help you in getting your desired results.
