Today, many consumers take to social media to express their views about a brand or seek help about a company’s product or service. When someone publicly tweets about a brand or writes on its Facebook page, the company is put to the test. How it responds and handles the situation will impact how people view the business.

Even if a person is simply talking about your brand and not necessarily asking a question or expecting a reply, it’s important for companies to listen and chime in as much as they can. Engaging with consumers and showing that your brand is human will make customers feel appreciated -- and they'll want to purchase more products or services from you.
