Through this method, the management can develop strategies for connecting with the clients and provide accurate information about the services that is required by the management (Koch & Richter, 2009).
Social strategies include developing effective communication process through which the company can interact with the clients and promote the services. This is one of ether effective methods for increasing the promotional activities, with the customers. The online communication process is quite reliable, fast, and cheaper than the other methods that are available for the clients to interact with the company.
