Relationship Marketing:

Relationship Marketing refers to interest in providing a more satisfying exchange. This approach attempts to transcend the simple purchase-exchange process with a customer to make more meaningful and richer contact by providing a more holistic, personalized purchase, and uses the experience to create stronger ties.

According to Liam Alvey, relationship marketing can be applied when there are co mpetitive product alternatives for customers to choose from; and when there is an ongoing and periodic desire for the product or service.

Relationship Marketing was first defined as a form of marketing developed from direct response marketing campaigns which emphasizes customer retention and satisfaction, rather than a dominant focus on sales transactions.

As a practice, Relationship Marketing differs from other forms of marketing in that it recognizes the long term value of customer relationships and extends communication beyond intrusive advertising and sales promotional messages.

With the growth of the internet and mobile platforms, Relationship Marketing has continued to evolve and move forward as technology opens more collaborative and social communicat ion channels. This includes tools for managing relationships with customers that goes beyond simple demographic and customer service data. Relationship Marketing extends to include Inbound marketing efforts (a combination of search optimization and Strategic Content), PR, Social Media and Application Development.

Just like Customer relationship management (CRM), Relationship Marketing is a broadly recognized, widely-implemented strategy for managing and nurturing a company‘s interactions

with clients and sales prospects. It also involves using technology to, organize, synchronize business processes (principally sales and marketing activities) and most importantly, automate those marketing and communication activities on concrete marketing sequences that could run in autopilot (also known as marketing sequences).

The overall goals are to find, attract, and win new clients, nurture and retain those the company already has, entice former clients back into the fold, and reduce the costs of marketing and client service. Once simply a label for a category of software tools, today, it generally denotes a company-wide business strategy embracing all client-facing departments and even beyond. When an implementation is effective, people, processes, and technology work in synergy to increase profitability, and reduce operational costs.
