It is important to build the customer service mentality throughout your organization. As you think about how to better serve your customers, keep the internal customer in mind. If you are trying to overcome a hurdle to serve an external customer/solve a pain point, you are likely going to need internal support to accomplish […]
There was recently a great article on Mashable, “Customer service best practices: Making social media a two-way conversation.” We will consider this article when we are having the January 20th SMChat that focuses on customer service.

The March Customer Service Feature for #SMChat will focus on predicted emerging trends in customer service. It is always a lively, engaging conversation and we hope that you will join us at 1PM ET on Wednesday, March 18th. As we approach the end of the first quarter, now seems to be an appropriate time to review the predicted Customer Service trends for 2015 and how they are impacting our businesses. We will also discuss, whether or not there are any trends that you expected to see and haven't seen yet.

We (people who contribute to the customer service conversation) work hard to create better customer experiences, look to generate improved metrics, fewer pain points, adding additional tools to help provide service...and yet, "customers aren't feeling any better." It should certainly cause us to pause and ask ourselves a few questions about our customer service initiatives for 2015. The monthly "Customer Service" feature on Social Media Chat will provide an opportunity to collaborate on achieving the ultimate customer service success - satisfied customers. Join the conversation #SMChat at 1pm ET on November 12th.
