Developing B2B Social Communities: Keys to Growth, Innovation, and Customer Loyalty explains why -to- companies need a robust online community strategy to survive and flourish in today’s changing and shows you how to design and execute your company’s strategy successfully.

Seminars, publications, market research, and customer care centers remain important tools in every B2B firm’s toolbox for understanding, attracting, and serving customers while keeping them loyal.

Three veteran community managers show you how to harness the knowledge of the crowd to help shape your company’s strategic direction, develop new products and services, identify trends, sell more, serve customers more efficiently, and provide better product support. Fleshing out precepts with real-world examples and case studies, the authors detail the transformational opportunities—and pitfalls—for creating online communities.
