[RW] Chances are, right now - your customers are having a conversation about you and your products with prospects and other customers without your knowledge Right now: Your marketing messages are being ignored and you are wasting print spend at the expense of digital influence in places you never thought of Your support teams have been cut so much and have not been trained to rapidly answer your customer’s questions that customers are asking each other for help and getting results Your sales efforts are stalled b/c your approach now falters as marketing falls on deaf ears This is the sad state we’re in..and yes, your prospects and customers have noticed
[RW] Almost All Agree Service is Important, but One in Five Feel They're Taken for Granted Not surprisingly, nine in ten Americans (91%) consider the level of customer service important when deciding to do business with a company. But only one-quarter (24%) believe companies value their business and will go the extra mile to keep it. Most feel businesses can do more to retain their loyalty: -- 48% feel companies are helpful but don't do anything extra to keep their business. -- Worse, 21% believe that companies take their business for granted. Good News Travels Fast -- Until You Go Online Importantly, customers are spreading the word willingly and widely when they experience good service. In fact, contrary to conventional wisdom, customers are more inclined to talk about a positive experience than complain about a negative one. Three-quarters (75%) are very likely to speak positively about a company after a good service experience in contrast with 59% who are very likely to speak negatively about a company after poor service. Good service experiences also carry more weight than bad ones when Americans make future spending decisions. Consumers are far more likely to give a company repeat business after a good service experience (81%) than they are to never do business with a company again after a poor experience (52%). In fact, consumers say the three most influential factors when deciding which companies they do business with include personal experience (98%), a company's reputation or brand (92%), and recommendations from friends and family (88%). Nearly half (48%) of consumers report always or often using an online posting or blog to get others' opinions about a company's customer service reputation. But when consumers go online they're looking for &quot;watch outs,&quot; saying they put greater credence in negative reviews on blogs and social networking sites than on positive ones (57% and 48%, respectively). &quot;The Internet has made service quality more transparent than ever before,&quot; Mr. Bush said. &quot;In the online space, positive recommendations are important, but people often give more weight to the negative. Because consumers can broadcast their views so widely online, each and every service interaction a company has with its customers becomes even more crucial. Developing relationships with customers, listening to them, anticipating their needs, and resolving any issues quickly and courteously can help make the difference.&quot; Two Strikes and You're Out. Or Is It One? A negative service experience is an important factor for most Americans: 81% have decided never to do business with a company again because of poor customer service in the past. When asked how many poor experiences they allow, half of all Americans (50%) reported it takes two poor service experiences before they stop doing business with a company. Importantly, consumers are far more forgiving if a company has earned their trust over time. Almost nine-in-ten consumers (86%) report they're willing to give a company a second chance after a bad experience if they've historically experienced great customer service with that company. But companies who get it wrong should realize it's at a cost. -- Half of consumers (52%) expect something in return after a poor customer service experience, beyond resolving the problem. -- Most consumers (70%) want an apology or some form of reimbursement.

[RW] Intrigue. Content and story line often represent the consumer tech side. The enterprise needs to develop relevant content to keep users engage. Content could include help topics, related information, user generated comments, etc. Reward. Both non-monetary and monetary incentives can be deployed. Rewards should match level of difficulty so users gain a sense of accomplishment. Non-monetary rewards could include exclusive information, access, or recognition. Status. Leader boards codify status in gamification. Leader boards reward status and provide a recognition mechanism as well as a way to tier users. A robust analytics platform must align with the objectives of gamification and support reward systems. Community. Social is a key part of gamification. Users want to connect, share, and reach out to other &quot;players&quot;. Expect integration back to mobile and social platforms. Challenge. Users must earn a sense of accomplishment to remain engaged. Gamification in the enterprise should tie back to the achievement of levels with increasing difficulty. Challenges will tie back to reward and intrigue over time.

[NA] Social search takes many forms, ranging from simple shared bookmarks or tagging of content with descriptive labels to more sophisticated approaches that combine human intelligence with computer algorithms .   The search experience takes into account varying sources of metadata, such as collaborative discovery of web pages, tags, social ranking, commenting on bookmarks, news, images, videos, knowledge sharing, podcasts and other web pages. Example forms of user input include social bookmarking or direct interaction with the search results such as promoting or demoting results the user feels are more or less relevant to their query.
