Increasingly, social media is the most effective way for businesses to keep in touch with their customers. A pretty obvious statement, right? Fewer and fewer people feel the need to pick up the phone and speak to a member of staff yet, at the same time, people still want an almost instantaneous response, something that can’t often be gained from an email. And this is where social media customer care comes into play.
Social Media Customer Care comes of age
This trend has seen people turning to the likes of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube over the last few years or so. Brands have been using these platforms for a while for other purposes, such as marketing and brand awareness, but it is only recently that businesses have started to take a leap of faith and put their social media customer care out there for the world to see.
People now expect brands to be using social media to communicate with their customers, and those that don’t could be missing out on some of the many benefits that this brings.Social Media Customer Care – A Brief Introduction | Infographic #SocialCustomerCareClick To Tweet
