  • 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).

      Can you track the number of engaged fans taking action vs. others from your online community?
      Commit to actions through a Google doc, online petition, online pledge, joining a back-door planning group. Use bit.ly links, special landing pages, other
      Ask fans to cultivate others – measure the number of fans that move to superfans
