Community-first branding with Web2 corporates

Valeria Henkel

In today's competitive business landscape, creating a loyal fan base is essential for long-term success. While Web3 projects have been at the forefront of adopting a community-first approach, this strategy is not limited to them alone. Web2 corporates can also harness the potential of building customer-centric communities to create strong connections with their audience and foster brand loyalty.

So, how can companies achieve this? Let's explore the four E's of the customer-centric approach that can pave the way to a thriving community:

🌟 Experience

A positive customer experience is the foundation of any successful community. Companies should strive to deliver a seamless experience throughout the entire lifecycle of their brand, products, and services. Engaging events and networking opportunities can be organized to create meaningful interactions among community members. By fostering a sense of belonging and providing value-added experiences, companies can leave a lasting impact on their audience.

📱 Everyplace

To truly connect with customers, companies must be available across all channels. This means being responsive on social media, email, and other platforms where customers seek information or engage with the brand. Establishing platforms like Discord servers or dedicated forums can also provide spaces for customers to ask questions, share ideas, and interact with one another, strengthening the community bonds.

🔁 Exchange

A customer-centric approach revolves around offering products and services that provide real value to customers. A compelling product story that justifies the purchase price is crucial. Highlighting the benefits of the product and explaining why it's worth the investment helps create trust and confidence among customers. Emphasizing the unique selling points of the brand and products fosters a stronger emotional connection within the community.

🤩 Evangelism

Happy customers can be the most influential brand advocates. Encouraging and empowering them to share their positive experiences can be a powerful marketing tool. Companies can implement strategies such as referral programs, where satisfied customers are rewarded for successful referrals. Sharing member testimonials and encouraging word-of-mouth communication across relevant channels can further amplify the brand's reach and reputation.
