DEFINITION of 'Relationship Management'

A strategy employed by an organization in which a continuous level of engagement is maintained between the organization and its audience.

INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Relationship Management'

Relationship management aims to create a partnership between the organization and its audience rather than consider the relationship merely transactional. Consumers who feel that a business responds to their needs are more likely to continue using the products and services that a business offers. Additionally, maintaining a level of communication with consumers allows the business to identify potential sources of costly problems before they come to a head.
