Personalization, or personalized communication, was one of the most talked about topics on digital marketing in 2015. The web, email, and mobile have each become highly personalized channels for communication. Social media is no exception.
As marketers, we understand the value of building good relationships in our hyper-connected times. We also know that broadcasting our marketing messages isn’t always the best way to connect with an audience, or keep their attention. Direct, one-on-one conversations go a long way towards building great relationships with prospects, customers, and peers.
Brands use social media to drive customer engagement. While a good marketing campaign helps in getting brand visibility and outreach, it lacks the touch that a personal interaction can get. Successful brands know how to do a mix of both.
A personal touch in your marketing just works. It works when thanking a happy buyer, it works when helping an unhappy customer, and it works when inviting an influencer to your product launch.
The folks at Twitter understand this well and the platform's latest update around guiding a public conversation into a private one is fantastic. Here’s how it works. Our team at Zoho Social couldn’t wait to build this into the product. We have it now, across all our plans.
