Using Social Media for Customer Service

Did you know that 42% of consumers who complain expect a 60 minute response time on social channels? We live in an age where instant gratification is the norm and customers would rather reach out via Facebook and Twitter to voice their opinion about a business than tell the business owner directly. So, how can a business use social media to help their customer service?

  1. Be fast. A response should be timely, and since social media never sleeps, it's Rule #1. We suggest establishing a maximum amount of time that’s allowed to pass before an comment is replied to and stick with it. This will create an expectation from your consumers so they won’t be chomping at the bit after fifteen minutes without word from your business.

  2. Be courteous. “I’m sorry” and “Thank you” are the two most important things to say to a customer, especially when the response is privy to everyone on the internet. Also, take into consideration what the customer is saying and respond accordingly. Don’t used canned responses because they often come across as ingenuine and forced.

  3. Be consistent. Always respond to comments on your social channels whether they are good or bad. Acknowledgement by a brand to a consumer is essential to building trust. No matter how big or small the problem or how often the same question is asked, always address the issue.

  4. Be mindful of your surroundings. Send a customer to a place where you can really take the time to address his or her concerns. For instance, you don’t want to put them on blast publicly if they owe your business money. Suggest a phone call or email which will allow you to really get to the heart of the matter.
