Reputation Online Live – How to grow your own community online
Mayfair Hotel, Stratton Street, London
8 October, 2010

Creating relationships directly with customers online is so often left to the realms of third part social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook, but there’ s a huge advantage in creating your own – for both B2B and B2C brands.

Building a community around your own website, forum or such is advantageous as you get to control your message and have an official voice within the conversation. It also means you have direct access to the data that will help you become better at talking with your customers.

At the event we’ll talk about the ways in which to build a community, what that community should or could look like and also discuss the balance between a brand’’s objectives and customer preferences.

Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr and other places are still important, but not everybody wants to go to a branded entity. You might have to go to where customers or contacts are already conversing – or at least provide a bridge.
