He told me that to reach people using Facebook page is cheap and that was 5 years ago.” Salmizan told that the number of Likes is not very important because what matters is those that Like his Facebook page are genuine.
“Many of those who bought their first cars from me, became friends and we communicate through Facebook. They ask questions about maintenance and other issues that they want to know. From continuously supporting my customers, in the long run, they recommend me to other friends. I think it is important to have a continuous relationship with people who bought cars through me. They are not only my customers, but they are also my friends who have supported me.”
