  • Brands and marketers need to:1) Look beyond the ‘friend’ and ‘fan’ metric which is a simple numbers game and place more emphasis on the quality of conversations2) Plan engagement marketing both pre and post campaign launch and offer value beyond the first transaction - you get out of a relationship what you put in3) Build trust first online or offline before requesting users to friend or fan brand and look to integrate all communications 4) Understand what the brand stands for in a user’s mind by crowd sourcing data to assist with market research 5) Develop transparent communication as a key between a brand and the user. Users could be regarded as part employees being in control of the brand-not you.6) Use the social network conceptual map in planning and managing a social network marketing campaign.
