Many business managers wonder if being socially devoted is important for their company, and what it means to its customers. The answer is pretty simple; to be socially devoted a brand has to keep a two way communication channel open with its customers. It has to respond to queries and complaints and finally, it has to do so in a timely manner. For a long time, business managers limited marketing efforts to bombarding their customers with advertisements. Today, it is clear that customers are interested in brands that are interested in them. If customers like a brand they will buy it, or else they’d rather pass on an offer.
How to Become Socially Devoted?
Companies must utilize social media accounts not only to communicate with their target audiences but also to listen to them and acknowledge their interactions. While the average industry response rate is 30%, it should be no less than 65%. Brands have to take the time to respond to their customers and this response should be well-timed. However, it is important that this time period be brought down to as little as 10-30 minutes.
