It shouldn’t therefore hurt to engage with your audience via interpersonal channels like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
To better your chances of achieving an ever loyal fan base, you can always consider hiring a lead generation company to serve as an effective back-up, the Slash to your corporate Axl Rose.
