Here are some conversations that have been collected from twitter where big brands are monitoring the conversation and responding in real time to customer service issues.
Five years ago if your company had world class customer service that meant you had some good information on your website and customers could call your toll free number 24/7
Today? you can no longer afford to wait for customers to bring their complaints to you. If you are waiting to solve problems you are losing customers. You must be proactive about listening to the conversations and responding in real time. Twitter is an amazing tool for this. Here are some awesome examples from big brands.
Let me just qualify that and say I am throwing in the big brands thing to show that this behavior is now mainstream not that you need a big budget. We have clients doing this way better than the big boys with micro brands and micro budgets. check out zarbees on twitter.
Chances are your company or cause is much smaller than these. Can you really afford not to be part of the conversation?
