Social Media for Customer Service Managers: Why it should be in your mix.

No more are the days when the only way to reach a company was to call their customer service line! In this digital age, social media is both a blessing and a curse for many companies, as customers and consumers flock to Facebook, Twitter, Yelp and Google to talk abut their experiences. While some customers may be satisfied with their experiences, those that are not are quick to publicly share their discontent all over social media.
Today’s customers don’t want to press buttons on the phone to get them to the right person, and definitely don’t want to be placed on hold – They want to Tweet a question and get an answer.

If you’re not already using social media to connect with your customers, aim to add it to your customer service strategy in the near future. Forward-thinking companies are already adding it to a customer service mix that includes traditional phone, email and live chat.
