  • The notion of tie strength was first introduced in 1973 by Prof. Mark Granovetter in his seminal work: The Strength of Weak Ties. He identified four different components of tie strength. Time, Intensity, Trust, Reciprocity of four components.Trust and reciprocity are the two components that companies can leverage effectively for building a stronger customer relationship.

  • Brands can build trust by being more transparent and authentic, and they can increase reciprocity by implementing co-creation strategies.http://lithosphere.lithium.com/t5/Building-Community-the-Platform/My-Chapter-on-Relationships-The-R-in-Social-CRM/ba-p/19024
  • Let them help you by letting them help other customers and reward them properly. This will create a cycle of reciprocity can sustain itself. Aside from the added benefit of reducing support cost, implementing a co-creation strategy is one of is the most effective way to increase reciprocity between your brand and your customers.

  • Relationship is Indicative of True LoyaltyAnother key reason why relationship is important for business is that it can be predictive of customer retention and loyalty. Customers who have a stronger relationship with a brand tend to be more loyal.The single most predictive factor that determines who will influence who, is the strength of their relationship (i.e. tie strength). The stronger the tie strength, the greater the influence between them.http://lithosphere.lithium.com/t5/Building-Community-the-Platform/My-Chapter-on-Relationships-The-R-in-Social-CRM/ba-p/19024From the comScore Power of Like report, July 2011: for every Fan, there are an additional 34 Friends of Fans that can be reached (with significant variance among brands). This multiplier grows even larger as we look beyond the top 100 brand pages (81x on average among the top 1,000 Fan pages).
