If you’re looking for a quick fix to your online marketing challenges, social engagement and community building isn’t going to be the answer. If you’ve been waiting for a fun, ethical, and sustainable way to grow your company’s online presence as well as grow your loyal connections, though, there’s no better way to get started.
Social media buzz alone is not enough to build and retain customer loyalty. Buzz is great for attracting new customers, but in order to keep them, you need to develop a long-term strategy. Staying power is what encourages customers to stick around.
Whenever customers interact with your brand, they become slightly more or less engaged. Stay consistent across every touch-point of the consumer experience to increase your engagement. Discover why customer engagement is more important than ever before, and lean what to do now to create an engaged and loyal consumer base.
One of the mistakes that successful companies make when faced with profound change in the business environment is to believe that their loyal customers will stay loyal, both to the brand and traditional business processes. Of course, building customer devotion is a necessity for brands nowadays, but leaders must recognize that today's strong brand loyalty offers no protection against significant changes in consumer expectations and behaviors.
Loyalty programs don't have to be limited to email discounts and accruing points. Social media offers businesses a wealth of opportunity to engender loyalty among current customers. But to do customer loyalty right on social media, you may have to change your perspective.
