Social Media has been around for well over five years, yet many CEOs just don’t see the point. Most of them leave social media activities to the marketing folks in their organization.
In a post on DIYMarketers, we explore the idea the some of today’s newest, coolest market research methods can actually be a great alternative for CEOs who hate all the hassle of social media but want all the results.
Here is a summary of the alternatives:
- If you hate the idea of losing control of your message, then create your own customer community. You can create a customer or user panel with whom you are in regular conversation. Ask the panel questions, via survey, they will give you answers.
- Still question the ROI of social media? Create a crowdsourcing space on your site where your customers can tell you their ideas for improvements and new products and you can respond. Create a real-live brain trust and conversation that gets your customer involved in creating a product they will love and talk about.
- Sick of people’s stupid updates? Run surveys and polls on the SurveySwipe mobile platform. You can blast out a question to our existing community or upload a list of your own. You’ll get feedback in less than 2 hours!
