While building communities has become fairly simple and easy, having a loyal customer base is the real challenge. In order to build a genuine community that contributes towards your customer lifetime value requires you to be raw and authentic. Speak for customers, help them, address their pain points, delight them and create a wow factor that distinguishes you in the market. A well-knit group of customers goes a long way than imagined.
To be the talk of the town cost effectively is simple and complicated, both at once. When you ‘wow’ your online community, you automatically have high chances of engaging them.

Offer value and knowledge to the people in your community. When you work with a foundational goal of delivering solutions for their needs, you inspire your community to connect with you. Inspire, connect and achieve!

Start with engaging, entertaining posts related to your industry or domain. By doing so, you’ll be almost always be amazed to have a healthy growing base of fans and followers who will be inquisitive to read your posts. That’s precisely the time to tell them about your business and convert them.

Work with your sales team to understand the journey a buyer typically takes and identify the key decision influencers at every stage. Circle out these stages and curate content that can be published to push the buyer down the sales funnel.
The driving force to ‘Go social’ is to ‘Be social’. Dive straight into connecting with your audience by commenting, following, retweeting, posting feedbacks and essentially leaving no stone unturned to reach out to that sea of customers waiting to be found.
