Regardless of whether your business is prepared to welcome social media through your doors, its already waiting at the doorstep. Your customers practically live on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus (or the big four as HubSpot has dubbed them), and they expect to see you there. From a customer service standpoint, these social media platforms are where they will voice their feedback. And they hold the cards to help or hurt your business depending on how you approach them.
For instance, Nielsons 2012 social media report revealed that over half of consumers use social media to report satisfaction, lodge complaints, and ask questions. If your business isnt able to respond quickly, there could be real consequences including lost business and a sullied reputation.
Conversely, taking a proactive approach can yield major points for your company. Look at the study that Social Bakers ran a month ago, comparing the quick Twitter response times of large brands. American Airlines ranked second with 12-minute response time average. This level of attention instills confidence and further support from long-standing customers.
To get to that fast-paced interaction point on your social media pages, your business would benefit from real-time tracking and message distribution capability. After all, if your social media team isnt getting the right messages in a timely fashion, they may be out of the loop when its time to respond.
