Interesting the differences between B2C and B2B social media marketing.
How B2C Marketers Use Content Successfully.
Do B2C content strategies differ from B2B?

What’s the best content for a B2C marketer?

A large percentage (71%) use visual assets in their social media marketing. Close behind was blogging (70%). Podcasting is only used by 10% of marketers and represents an opportunity.

Customer Service Oriented, Friendly, Fast, Quality Work and Pricing very reasonable! Needed my garage door rollers replaced. Had called two other companies, and then I called Robert. Had to leave a message, to my surprise within a few minutes, Robert called back. He was professional, and wanted my business, and got it done that afternoon. Not like the other companies who weren't as responsive, and didn't see to care. I highly recommend Robert at Manna Garage Doors.

I've been a loyal Dryve Cleaners customer for 10 yrs.Helen the mgr. has a habit of not returning phone calls on past problems. This time, I had two shirts that weren't cleaned and one had stains all over the pocket. After three trips, I finally got a direct number from the employee. My ear is still ringing from Helen yelling at me the customer. She ruined a Tommy Hilfiger shirt. Hung up on me twice, third time she wouldn't answer. I've never been so rudely treated as a customer ever. Unbelievable! Someone needs to call Helen and give her some Customer Service training. As for Dryve Cleaners, in Germantown/Collierville, that was the final straw!
