With about 80% of all internet users being active on at least one social media platform, it is the key to being in touch with your customers. If you’re a business but not on social media already, then you need to be. If you already have social media presence, it’s important that you are active and responsive. Social media is a critical customer service tool, aside from posting photos or status updates, using social media for customer service can elevate your business to the next level. But you have to do it well; if your social media presence is not carefully managed, it can damage your brand and drive potential paying customers far away. And the key to having a super customer service across all your channels is one word Social Data Router (SDR).
Most of the business owners get confused between Social Data Routers and Social Media Connectors. But in this blog, we will help you spot the differences.
Common Social media connectors mainly focus on one customer enquiry at a time or limited number of enquiries a day or only limited to monitoring traffic on social media platforms and not about enhancing customer experience. While not responding at all can clearly have a negative impact on your brand, you also have to respond within a reasonable amount of time. According to recent data from Convince & Convert, 42% of consumers expect a response to a complaint on social media within 60 minutes. The same research says nearly a third expect that response within half an hour.
