Today probably every business is sufficiently aware of the importance of social media for customer service. Report by Parature shows us that 33% of consumers confirm they have used social media to ask a customer service question at least once and 18% use social media as a customer service channel on regular basis.
Just these facts alone are enough for companies to start giving basic attention to the quality of their social customer care.
However, other stats showing how big an impact those small number of customers reaching out via social media (compared to other, traditional customer service channels) have on the brand’s image, reputation and in the end, sales volume, become even stronger motivation to put in time and effort into the development of social customer care. >>>
