To deliver brand experiences and create loyalists, a company must create real connections with stakeholders. Connections are touch points that include every opportunity a company has to guide relationships and provide value.
Every connection adds (or subtracts) from the company’s brand and reputation. The key is identifying each point of connection and using them to deliver positive experiences and reinforce the company’s brand values.
Today, companies have overwhelming opportunities to connect, so much so that they can often become counterproductive. The goal is to utilize the tools to create a relationship and build loyalty with stakeholders. To develop a valued reputation and deep relationship with your audiences, stakeholders need to be engaged beyond the product or service. Such relationships occur best when you exhibit some personality and reveal human traits, particularly a sense of caring.
