If you’re looking for a way to fight back from your company’s primary challenge of being more customer-oriented in how you manage your online conversations than congratulations you’ve found it. Through my research, I have found the four pillars (4 C’s) to solve your problem:
Customers enjoy talking about your company’s services and products so give them a reason to, as it can be a key driver for consumer conversations both on and offline.

Provide people with positive and relevant company news were they can be brand ambassadors and spread the good news or share it on social media.
Asking the customer what they want, therefore your involving them in everything your company is doing. As customers are your primary source of revenue through generating profits for your company, it seems only right to involve them in your decision making processes. Placing customers in the decision making process is based on producing a product which customers truly want.
Tune in next time to find out what exactly characterizes a social media crisis and how to successfully manage it online.
