You Can’t Understand A Conversation That You Aren’t A Part Of... | BridgettMcclain | Scoop.it

Smart companies are the ones that are connecting with their customers online. By doing so, they are getting a better understanding of their customers as well as the online conversation around their brand. But, In most cases, there’s an alarming disconnect between who the brand thinks its customers are, and vice-versa. Usually, this disconnect is because the brand and customer have no real interaction with each other.

@TimOKeefe Yes it is! I usually start out w/ clients with the analogy that Social Media should be treated re communication such as their phone or email while that conversation is public knowledge such as a bill board or magazine ad. It is scary for some but as you stated it is vital to know what consumers are saying!

This type of communication takes a long time for more established business owners to adjust too and adopt! It's so counter intuitive to what they have ever done. The Gen X & Y business owners totally get it - yet you'll be hard pressed to find them in the same business model as this older generation. That's why Erik Qualman said "The ROI of Social Media is that you'll still be in business in five years."

The Great Social Customer Service Race: Top Brands Compete in a Social Response Test

The Great Social Customer Service Race: Top Brands Compete in a Social Response Test | BridgettMcclain | Scoop.it

Few topics have dominated customer service strategy conversations like social media.

 

This trend presents a formidable challenge for companies that receive thousands–sometimes hundreds of thousands–of tweets per day. It’s impossible to expect them to respond to everything.

 

But what do they respond to, how quickly, and how well?

This is a fantastic insight into the use of social media in customer service. Here you will see the reaction of 14 different brands to tweets sent by 4 individuals in a systematic way of testing their ability to win the social customer service race!

 

Such an interesting read!

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, February 16, 2013 9:03 AM

I thought this study was so devastatingly important I posted Atlanticbt.com's first guest blog post: http://www.atlanticbt.com/blog/social-service-how-social-media-is-changing-customer-service/ .

The study is fascinating and devastating because it speaks to how poorly aligned even major brands are to social media marketing. Customers are having conversations to no response. 


"No response" is doubly devastating because it says, "We aren't listening and we don't care." Relationships aren't accidents they are decisions. Make the right decision and make sure your company, brand or product listens more than you talk on social media. 

Gonçalo Hall's curator insight, February 26, 2013 4:28 AM

Um excelente artigo que demonstra que na maioria dos casos, as expetativas de resposta de uma marca nas redes sociais a pedidos de apoio técnico é ainda muito reduzida. Muito trabalho tem ainda de ser feito..
