Social Media has become the heart and sole of customer communications. Corporations and brands rely on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Snapchat, Instagram and Pinterest to educate current and potential customers on their products and services. Even when Marketers utilize more traditional marketing methods like print and broadcast media there is always a social media component giving customers a way to directly engage with brands and their products and services.
When a customer is unhappy with a product or service they used to call a customer service number, stay on hold for a long period of time then speak with a customer service rep. Today customers jump on Twitter or Facebook to complain and many brands have large war rooms staffed with social media staff who’s sole purpose is to make you happy. Customer service used to receive the phone call or e-mail but today if someone Tweets about a product problem or requiring tech support, competent support staff respond with and informative tweet directing the customer to a link with the answer to their question or concern.
What about product development or engineering? When you really listen to your customers within Social Media they will tell you what they would like to see in your products or from your services. Marketing is staffed by “Listening Officers” who monitor customer complaints and comments. It’s these comments that turn into new products and services from the companies who truly listen.
