Have you ever had a social media customer service experience? According to one recent poll on customer service online, 83% of business respondents said they answer customer complaints via social channels in less than six hours. What’s your response time? If you’re reading this and think “hey, I don’t really monitor social media that closely, let alone respond” you’re not alone. In fact, only about 40% of retailers actually monitor what their customers say online.
It’s no longer enough to sit on the sidelines. When your target customer spends five hours a day on Facebook; sends 120 text messages and half a dozen tweets a day from a smartphone and posts photos, videos, and blogs around the clock; “checks in” regularly using Foursquare at favorite retail locations to become “mayor”; relies on a plethora of mobile apps like Google Maps to get from one place to another, you can bet that they expect you to be there in social media when they want service!
This one-hour webinar covers the fundamentals of social media customer service, the best practices to employ and shares cases and examples the good, the bad and the ugly of social media customer service.
