    The most valuable customers you can have are those who know you have made an effort to speak to them directly, and will happily recommend your product/service to their friends, colleagues and family. .........
    .........There is a whole range of possibilities to engage your audience online Many of these are still largely untapped, and are perfect opportunities to invest in for a long-term competitive advantage.
