Using Social Media to Tell Customer Stories and Connect with Fans

May 15, 2012 - 2 Comments

Social media is a perfect vehicle through which you can not only share customer stories but also connect with fans. While doing so, it is critical that you make sure the communication is always a two-way street. Relaying your fans’ messages through social channels will help build stronger, interpersonal relationships while giving you the opportunity to become a better listener as well.

Here’s a brief 2-minute video in which these experienced social practitioners tell us their thoughts:

  1. I agree that tapping into the customer stories that are already out is a great way to enhance your social media strategy. Thanks for the video!

  2. Interesting interview. Storytelling is a tricky thing and very difficult to set up. Lots of companies have nothing to share about their DNA, or at least something really interesting. Anyway, social media is a good way to start conversations with customers. Thanks again for sharing.
