To do this they use the next stage of customer relationship management, the fulfilment of social needs. We live in an age of social shopping; communities are everywhere and everyone shares information. Until now, classic CRM systems have run from static databases. Now, however, contrary social CRM systems perform two-way communication, starting a conversation with customers and encouraging them to voice their opinions, which are constantly changing on social media, and building a dynamic database while they communicate with customers through response-reactions.
