Relationship marketing or building a relationship with your target audience on social media is not a one-off activity. It is a long term process that requires dedication and commitment in order to maintain retention of fans and followers. Let’s look at some vital tips that will help you build a reputation and stand out in social media circles.
Listening to your followers is evidently the most important aspect of your marketing campaign. By keenly listening to your audience you can gauge the demand and tailor your campaign in order to suit the demand and have a better success rate.
On a social media platform there is no scope for even a little “White Lie”. In order to maintain the credibility and sanctity of your brand it is important to be absolutely genuine and promise only how much you can deliver. Tall claims will expose your brand as unreliable and cause you to lose faith amongst your followers. Believe it or not, audience can recognize even the smallest of exaggeration.
