Building An Online Community That Begs For More


Published on

Social media is an invaluable tool for creating brand-centric online communities. Core engagement principles can be translated across multiple platforms. Recognizing, nurturing, and engaging your members will open channels of authentic conversation that will amp up the volume of online communities of any size. By structuring your social media strategy with these key concepts in mind, you'll bring down the house by leveraging your online reach into real-life customer conversions. Presented at Social Media Rockstars in Morton, MN on September 19, 2013.

  • It will be exciting to see where social media goes as it grows past its infancy - where people mostly just share information outward - and becomes a dynamic tool for community growth. It really does have the ability to revolutionize business by linking companies and their customers in a community of share value creation.

    In such a relationship consumers will be empowered and businesses will be able to engage their customers as researchers, innovators, and sales-people.

    Thanks for helping to lead the way!
