The Power of Social Media

I love social media: twitter, facebook, and blogging. It’s amazing the things that can happen out of social media. In the past few months I have really gotten into twitter. I like it even more than facebook, which if you know how much I love facebook you would be shocked!

So after seeing this commercial on television:

This commercial pretty much sums up my life right now.

I had this conversation on twitter with the lovely Katelyn:

So after this exchange on twitter, I received the following tweet from Tide:

Heck yesssss I will give you my address for some free tide! I figured it would take weeks or months to receive this free tide. Kind of like a rebate thing that takes forever. Well I was in for quite the surprise when I opened my mailbox last night and I found this:

Well Angie you just made my night! Within a week I had this in my possession! This is what social media and community management should be within a company. Making customers happy without them even asking. I would LOVE to do this as my job, hopefully one day I will.

It’s crazy how a couple tweets ended up with free tide, but I truly appreciate it! Thanks Tide! I’ve always used Tide and this gesture will definitely keep me as a loyal customer for years to come.

disclaimer: Tide did not ask me to blog about this or even knows I have a blog. I wrote this blog because I was truly impressed with their community management/social media team and wanted to share.ย 

Has a company ever sent you anything via social media just because?
