The more a consumer is exposed to your messaging the better. It’s even better if they are spending time with your social presences. Because of the interactivity you can infuse you’re your social messaging, you can increase the amount of engagement with potential customers. It also increases the likelyhood of social sharing and brand evangelism. A good customer is going to keep frequenting your business – a good socially active customer is going to frequent your business and tell all of their online peers to visit it as well.
