Happy customers tell three people. Angry customers can Tweet to millions.

About This Free Virtual Summit

Successful social support is more than fielding angry Tweets. Customers want to give input on your development priorities and your sales and support processes. In a subscription economy, if you ignore that input, customers can easily move to another technology provider. 

This virtual event, “Transforming the Customer Experience with Social Support,” brings together social support experts from leading companies to share tools and tactics for incorporating a social strategy into your support initiatives, including:

  • Social listening: Monitoring feeds to understand customer sentiment—and even the sentiment of your customer’s customers—regarding your brand, your products, and your services.
  • Online communities: With some demographics preferring online communities to traditional web self-service, investing in robust forums is critical to boost self-service success and enable peer support.
  • Social knowledge: From mining community posts to launching knowledge wikis, customers are anxious to contribute their knowledge to your corporate knowledge store, and their “in the trenches” perspective is incredibly valuable, especially to other customers.
  • Social media support: How do you engage with customers making social posts about product problems? Find out best practices for training, staffing, and delivering service via social channels.
  • Social Engagement Rating. Developed by TSIA, Social Engagement Rating is one of the emerging metrics for 2017. Is your organization incorporating social media scoring into your traditional voice of the customer programs? Doing so will enable you to better predict customer loyalty. Learn how to create a Social Engagement Rating, and how to incorporate the rating into your current VOC programs.

This 3-hour interactive virtual summit is open to everyone and is absolutely free to attend!
