Abby Brooking's curator insight, September 8, 4:51 AM

Brand Strategy:

"Relationships are the New Currency" is discussing the important benefits of online marketing for businesses and how they should approach the 'social' engagements and interaction such as twitter, instagram and google+ to name three varieties, as an alternative to 'personal' as social is constantly changing and maturing.

 

Brands or companies that use social media resources successfully, build relationships and encourage the rewards of customer satisfaction, deeper employee loyalty, more effective knowledge sharing, improved brand reputation, lowered costs and increased revenues.

 

The key to the success is to build relationships through new communication tools and creating trust through brand authenticity, also to empower employees who then will power your brand, which is a very interesting strategy for promoting a product/service.
