Social has opened up a huge opportunity: to engage directly with customers, to understand what motivates and interests them, and to increase the size of the audience for your content. But it's the very size of the opportunity that's the biggest problem. When marketing budget and resources are tight, where do you focus? And how can you be sure that the right message gets out to the right audience via the right channel, and that the overall approach is joined-up and consistent?
As the use of social media has spread, it's become something no marketer can afford to ignore. People are using social media at home, on the move and at work, to do everything from researching purchases to planning visits to industry events.
Social has edged its way into every aspect of your customers' lives. Marketers have no choice but to follow. Some have eagerly embraced social media, while others have been deeply reluctant converts. But almost all marketers now know what social media can do:
- Listen to customers' wants, needs, enthusiasms and gripes
- Engage with customers and prospects in a genuine, two-way communications environment
- Respond to questions, compliments and complaints personally and in near-real-time
- Generate leads by integrating social actions into lead generation and buyer analysis
