The following are some tips to build a relationship marketing strategy/experience.

Customer experience matters

Customer service go hand in hand with customer experience. Continuously solicit feedback from your customers as to what they like and don’t like. When a lot of customers want something, give it to them. The purpose of this is to make the customers’ journey delightful every step of the way.

Social media marketing

But as you know many discussion forums are cesspools of human expression, so it’s critical you ensure yours never becomes one. Setup a series of sensible rules, don’t tolerate rudeness, ensure the forum is moderated effectively.
