  6. #1) Focus on Social Communication • DO focus on social communication as equally as you focus on social content. Facebook and Twitter are more communication engines than content engines. • Don't make social media just a platform to promote your product.  Let your customers promote the product and use social media to promote your customers.

  7. #2) Listen and Engage • Do listen and engage with your audience everyday.  They want you to talk with them but not at them. • Don't avoid customer complaints or gripes.  One or two unanswered negative comments can leave a huge impression on your prospective customers, not just the person who's posting that comment.

  8. #3) Build Equity and Social Relationships • Do build equity in your social channels.  The long-term ROI on a social customer can be 10 times higher than a non-social customer. • Don't assume that just because a consumer "likes your brand" that they're a social customer.  You have to continue to build that relationship and turn that "Like" into Love.
