Many companies fear engaging in digital social interaction with their customers because of the horror stories they’ve heard. And, yet, if they don’t engage, they miss out on unheard of opportunities to connect with customers online, obtain feedback from them and develop long term relationships. It’s time for businesses to take social interactions seriously:
There’s more to be gained from participating – and actively managing one’s social reputation – than not. By participating in digital conversations, businesses have a chance to guide the interaction, share perspective and – more importantly – learn and obtain unique insights that can only improve a company’s competitiveness! By abdicating involvement, companies open the door for customer related situations that escalate out-of-control into Dell Hells or United Guitar Breaking. Participate, set expectations, listen attentively and instead create passionately loyal Fiskateer-like brand ambassadors.
