Does your business have an effective Social Customer Care process in place?

If not, you’re at risk of losing customers and damaging your reputation…

Discover the step-by-step process to consistently delighting your customers with social media customer service – and avoid going viral for all the wrong reasons

With the rapid rise of social media, how you interact with your customers online is now more important to your business’ success than ever before.

By 2020, an estimated 90% of companies will be using social media for customer service… (Gartner)

Your customers already expect you to help them with questions, complaints and feedback on social media, and to do it as quickly and empathetically as possible…

Social Customer Care

But is your business delivering this for YOUR customers?

If not, you’re in danger of losing these customers to your competitors.

Accenture reported that in 2015, 66% of consumers switched to a different provider due to poor customer service.

And with social media for customer service rapidly increasing in popularity, you simply can’t afford to be left behind.

What happens if your company isn’t using Social Customer Care effectively?

Without a clear and consistent process for handling customers on social media, your company risks alienating customers, losing out to competitors, and missing out on valuable new opportunities.

If you aren’t responding correctly or empathetically to customers and prospects on social media, things can quickly snowball out of control…

Unhappy customers voicing their displeasure on Facebook, Twitter and other social channels have a tendency to multiply –so you need to address them not just quickly, but correctly.

For instance:

  • Does your team have a consistent, robust set of guidelines for what they should say, and when (and where) they should say it?

  • Do you know how you should respond when a conversation escalates on social media, or when other people get involved?

  • Are you confused about which technology you should be using, how you should set it up and how to budget for it?

  • How do you best use monitoring and alerts to manage your social media customer service?

  • Do you understand the regulations for social media use in your industry?

  • Are you happy with your tone of voice, and do you respond to your customers empathetically every time?

  • Do you have a system in place for measuring and evaluating your brand’s Social Customer Care?

If you’re not sure how to answer these questions, or aren’t confident about how to respond to a complaint online, now’s the time to fix that problem.

But how can you ensure it won’t be you next time?

With the stakes so high, you must take steps now – not just to protect your brand’s reputation, but also to strengthen it with effective Social Customer Care.

Businesses can no longer get away with an ad-hoc approach that simply reacts to what customers are saying online…

Whether you’re a team of one or fifty, brands and companies of all sizes are now expected to handle customer care quickly, efficiently and empathetically across social channels.

But it can be easy to lose focus when there are so many differing opinions online about what constitutes best practice…

So how do you avoid information overwhelm and find clear, reliable advice on improving your Social Customer Care process?

Whose advice should you follow when there is so much information and so many conflicting opinions out there?

And what if you’re already offering Social Customer Care…

How do you decide what you should keep doing, and what do you need to change?

If you’re not tracking and measuring performance, how can you know if what you’re doing is effective, or is just a waste of time in your customers’ eyes?

Without a clear strategy, it’s hard for you and your team to have any confidence in the service you’re providing.

This online course helps you implement effective social media customer care, and gives you and your team the tools, training and confidence you need to turn complaints into positive feedback.

If you’ve ever struggled with Social Customer Care or are worried about how it may impact your business, this course is designed for you.

Our expert instructors will walk you through exactly what to do and help you get started. You’ll see case studies based on real-world business situations, and hear from experts in the industry.
