Move over coupons and discounts, today’s corporates and businesses should look at other ways to increase brand loyalty and trust, according to the leading communications and marketing consultant Edward De Valle. While it is obvious that organizations do not go overboard only to increase customer loyalty, there is certainly a need to refine and focus on this important aspect of public relations, and the new means are at hand.
“Both corporate social responsibility as well as social media marketing have emerged as an important aspect of a business that helps it gain trust and confidence in the eyes of the customers,” says Edward De Valle.
Customer surveys confirm this, as they point out how companies are admired by customers for giving back to the community through outreach, caring for the environment through better processes, and having policies and investments that go beyond mere profit. This is also due to the fact that the modern consumer is equally aware of social and environmental issues and is willing to buy one product rather than another based on such criteria.
This is important for companies operating in sectors such as retail, education, real estate and health, for their role in community development can be highlighted strongly through better social media presence and content marketing. Edward De Valle and his experts are active in public relations and paid media to improve the business-customer relationship has its main strategy.
Public relations and content generation for social media are thus important for new and existing businesses if they wish to leverage brand loyalty for long term sustenance. As per a survey, 75 percent respondents revealed that organizations weren’t doing enough towards increasing brand loyalty. This field is therefore ripe for further growth with paid, sponsored and free social media content.
While some may argue that sponsored content isn’t the best way to go about public relations for CSR, there is data to show that in such cases sponsored content is not perceived as advertising. It is still important to identify such content clearly and gain trust for being transparent.
Social media is another platform that is attracting huge attention for its ability to bring companies closer to consumers. The buzzwords here are sentiments, engaging content, viral, reach, influencers, quick interaction, feedback, complaint resolution and a regular stream of content. These can do the trick in building a good rapport. Companies in industries such as travel, retail, food and beverages and entertainment have a lot to gain from trust built on social media.
It is also possible to measure and quantify the results of social media activities and keep track of how successful any campaign or activity is. Edward De Valle and his experts offers marketing consultancy for firms who aim to engage in and track social media initiatives.
“Brand loyalty in the new economy is one of the most important aspects of doing business due to intense competition from both existing and new players. Among other things, it can mean the difference between success and failure. Both community and environmental concern as well as social media interactions are crucial to build brand loyalty in the new age,” said Edward De Valle.
