Relationship Management strategy must focus on achieving the goal of the
company. Lots of deliberations must have gone into while arriving at the goals
of the company. Various surveys at different levels of marketing dynamics and
their analysis by experts and the consolidation of their findings—all these
weighted activities precede formation of the goals. Now, it is the sole
responsibility of the company that it keeps all its employees informed of the
goals of the company and the plan of action that has been evolved with care and
caution. Here lies the crucial task of the management; with thought-out efforts
and means, the company must win the employees in such a way that the employees
feel the goals of the company are their goals too; that is, the goals of the
company must end up being internalized by the employees. This enables the
employees to give their best to the company rather immediately since they feel
it is their responsibility to work along the lines shown by the management.

them know that you are aware of what they share and what they say in local
social media channels. This will strengthen the impression that the company has
placed the customers on the forefront of the business; this strategy will go a
long way in retaining the customers with the company. There is a great
possibility that in the social media the customers do express their choices,
their ideas about your products, about your rivals’ products. This knowledge
