Social media is a vital tool for shaping brand perceptions. Providers can utilize social media to humanize their brand through the use of informal promotional campaigns. Transparency and trust can be reinforced by allowing Amazon-style peer reviews of providers products and services.
Social media aids the promotion and development of products and services. Social media can aid the shift to a customer-centric strategy by helping providers to sell solutions rather than products. Social platforms allow providers to crowdsource ideas for new product and service innovations, and to refine concepts before launch.
Providers can improve communication with their customers through social media. They can use these channels to quickly disseminate service updates and to act as crisis management tools. Video channels are particularly effective for educating and informing consumers, hence reducing inbound traffic to other channels.
