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

Of course this goes without saying, but there are many small businesses who do this poorly. Provide answers to your customers questions. Treat your customers as best as possible and be there when they need you.

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

Social media gives you the opportunity to answer customer’s questions. Social media is one of the best channels to build relationship with your customers.

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.
