What Are Your Fans Saying About You?

Screaming Fans

I have been talking about the importance of engaging with your fans on the various social networks. I recently wrote about how you need toseek out your fans. I am sure you have read more than a few times how your fans are your best sales team. You might have even heard that fans want to be recognized by you more than anything else. It’s all true. It’s something I will repeat over and over… talk to your fans. Once you start talking to them then you can think about selling to them.  The simple action of finding a fan and following them can result in great responses.

Your fans are out there and are waiting to scream their support. Are your fans posting comments like these? If not maybe you need to step up your engagement with your fans.
