Social Media Service

The most important questions at a glance

Would you like to inspire your customers with social media? Then you need an outstanding social media service. What this is and why social customer service is so important is explained below.

What is a Social Media Service?

A Social Media Service / Social Customer Service are a customer service for social channels. The principle is comparable to an inbound call center: Customers (or partners) get in contact through a social media channel to obtain information or solutions to their problems. In addition to the classic channels such as Facebook, Twitter and Co., a social media service also includes WhatsApp, web self-services or live chats.

By the way: Social Media Services differentiates between “Shared Team” and “Dedicated Team”. Further information can be found under Inbound Services

What distinguishes a good social media service?

Whether telephone, social media, live chat, email or app: a good customer support always uses different communication channels. For example, customers often start via web chat and then call the hotline – as a company, you still have to offer your customers a smooth process. The call center agent, for example, should know the previous chat conversation so that the customer does not have to repeat everything.

Multichannel management is therefore important for every social media service. At least as important is a fast response time – customers expect faster responses in social networks than with classic channels.

Are there useful tools for better social customer service?

  1. Message Management

The management of messages is important in order to be able to react quickly to inquiries. There are several tools available to help you keep track and process messages from different channels via one interface. For a more efficient workflow!

  1. Chatbots and Help Center

Chatbots and help centers make it easy to answer frequently asked questions (FAQs). Both tools can reduce or categorize simple customer requests, but cannot replace call center agents.

  1. Monitoring and Tracking

Monitoring and tracking systems sustainably improve your products and processes. The tools can detect, track and document common problems such as shipping or product errors. With an efficient reporting, you can then check whether and how quickly an error has been corrected.
