Social media allows small businesses to directly communicate with their customers and has the potential to turn those customers into virtual sales team. Conversations are a two - way street. Make sure youre replying to people who interact with you on social media. Engage with strong social influencers, such as bloggers that your customers read or individuals with robust followings. Engaging online community is core to social media and one of the keys to your success.


Community Marketing

Customers who enjoy developing a sense of brand loyalty and care about interactive customer service are most affected by Community Marketing. These customers generally value opinions of others, and will discuss their purchases with friends, family and coworkers, both face - to - face and via social media. Often, customers who are already very brand - loyal are excellent advocates for organic Community Marketing. This essentially makes them non - professional experts to whom less involved customers ask questions and advice. Its easy to get less - involved customers motivated to be part of the brand community by offering them exclusive perks and rewards like coupons or free samples.
