Build Customer Relationships that Matter through Social Media

As a follow-up to my post last Friday, ‘What Your Customers Say When You Don’t ‘ or Won’t ‘ Listen,’ I encourage organizations that want to learn how to effectively engage with their customers on Twitter to read ‘How to Network with Influential People Using Twitter’ by Jason Kosarek.

This article offers guidance on fostering relationships to increase your customer reach and to build a strong and engaged customer community: 

  • Find the Influencers in Your Current Network
  • Know Your Competitors’ Connections
  • Search for Influencers in Your Niche
  • Follow and Interact with People on Twitter
  • Set Up Alerts to Track Where Your Influencers are Mentioned or Post Online
  • Add Value Outside of Twitter

If you’ve been thinking about joining the conversation on Twitter and listening to what your customers are saying about you, now’s the time.
