CRM in the age of the Social Web


Published on

Social CRM is based on the simple premise that you are able to interact with your customers based on their needs, not your rules. It is an extension of CRM, not a replacement, and among the important
benefits is that it adds value back to the users and customers.

  28. 31. The Customer is Changing. Is Your Company? The traditional customer is the one we all were as recently as a decade ago.  We bought products and services and based our decisions on utility and price.  We communicated with the companies we were dealing with by letter, phone call, and occasional e-mail, if they had the facility to do that.  But that customer changed because of a social change in the early part of the millennium.  The customer seized control of the business ecosystem and it was never the same .“ ~ Paul Greenberg, Author of CRM at the Speed of Light
