The silent ‘Social’ revolution in Call Centers

Customer behavior is forever changing. And accordingly the methods of customer service as well. Earlier in the days of yore, customer service essentially meant home-visit by a company representative.

Today it is typically done over the phone, by just calling to the customer service call center. But the emerging trend is to deliver customer service online through the website, chat support and social media.

Social Media was earlier considered important from the angle of marketing to customers and capturing young and savvy target audience. So the customer engagement through social media was strategically increased. The businesses started talking to customers through social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Google+ etc. And as a result – the customers started talking back to the business.

social media customer serviceCustomers also started posting back their views, opinions and also their complaints. They started venting their anger and sharing their dissatisfaction and bad experiences related to the product.

Deleting these negative comments could be the solution to management of your FB or Twitter profile. But it is not the solution to management of your brand image or your customer base. Instead of deleting, you will have to deal with the customers and resolve their problem.

This is where Bluechip Callcenter call centers come into picture.
