For the past 100 years, there have been only three channels for customer support: In person, over the phone, or by mail. The 1990s added email to the equation, too. But the dawn of social media changed everything.
Customers now expect support via instant message, text message, Twitter, Facebook, and more. They expect to communicate with a knowledgeable representative, empowered to problem-solve, 24 hours a day, on each and every channel they choose.
Customer expectations have evolved in the digital age, and it’s up to businesses to meet these expectations – or lose customers to businesses that do. It’s a challenge that may seem daunting, but with the right people, processes and technology, it’s possible to connect with customers whenever and wherever they choose to reach out.
