4 Examples of Excellent Customer Service on Facebook

4 Examples of Excellent Customer Service on Facebook | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it
A blog about ecommerce marketing, running an online business and updates to Shopify's ecommerce community.
Cendrine Marrouat - www.socialmediaslant.com's insight:

In 2013, the expression "Time is of the essence" has never mattered  more! 

 

"Online shoppers love going on Facebook to contact merchants about orders, or even complain about a bad experience. 

 

But having a complaint appear on a Facebook page for all of the world to see can be pretty scary for ecommere store owners. The good news is there's a huge upside - responding and resolving the issue properly and quickly can create loyal fans who trust that you will take care of any problems that arise.

 

Here are 4 examples of excellent customer service on Facebook. Adopt these smart strategies to your own social media customer service plan and you'll turn complainers into brand champions."

Create, Organize and Edit Cross-Format Presentations Online with Bunkr

Robin Good's curator insight, May 4, 2013 7:12 AM



Bunkr is a new web app which allows you to easily collect and organize all of your existing content and images and to build up visual presentations by easily dragging and dropping your selected items into a dedicated presentation area.


Bunkr slides can be easily edited, with text, images or video clips. Slides can be easily deleted, moved or rearranged intuitively.


An integrated library + search facility makes it easy to organize in a professional way all of your imported content so that you can use it for more than just one time.


The final presentation can be saved, previewed and exported to HTML5 iframe embed code, PDF or PPTX formats for final publication and distribution.



My initial impressions are quite positive as the tool feels fast, and quite intuitive (after you have seen the tutorial clips). From there everything works as expected and once you have imported your selected content, you can build a presentation in a matter of minutes.


Some features that would make Bunkr an immediate winner with me would be:


a) Ability to search for resources (content+images+video) out on the web


b) Option to import an image in a slide and have it automatically fill the whole slide


c) Better text control handling (small controls, low usability) to make it easy to edit text easily and format it faster


d) Some great display fonts



Free to use.


Try it out now: http://bunkr.me 


Check out these mini-tutorial clips:


Definitely worth trying out.

It's Time for Truth on Social Media

It's Time for Truth on Social Media | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it
It’s no longer just journalists delivering information. With social media, the power of information-sharing now rests in the hands of everyday people.
Cendrine Marrouat - www.socialmediaslant.com's insight:

As a journalist, I learnt really early in my career to verify sources. I have never been afraid of lawsuits, it's more about being ethical and providing my audience with the most accurate information possible. 

 

The big problem is that, not everyone takes the time to check if what they share on social media is true or not. And this became really apparent during the Boston Marathon bombings.

 

I rarely share articles from Mashable, but this one is definitely worth a read.
