Social media for businesses is a highly controllable and low cost platform for content marketing, promoting brand engagement, and even customer service.

Nielsen’s Social Media Report in 2012 reported that half of US consumers used social media to ask questions, report satisfaction or to complain. A third of consumers also said that they preferred ‘social care’ to customer service via the telephone.

numero believe that social platforms should be managed just like any other marketing component of a business. Social CRM allows businesses to do this by allowing them to engage with customers across all key social channels. By incorporating social media into a business’s marketing and customer service activities, businesses can learn more about their customers’ likes and dislikes. numero believe that social media is like taking traditional CRM software, designed to provide one central location to gather, store, process and analyse customer information, and giving it a personality.

By leveraging the huge amount of information available on social media channels about customers’ habits in a worthwhile manner, businesses can uncover more leads and better interact with consumers, boosting the overall customer experience.

Often a customer interaction on social media is a result of a poor experience on a traditional channel such as telephone or email. Research from
Forrester showed that inadequate records of a customer’s interaction history with a brand meant that 35 per cent of customer service agents were forced to restart conversations at every unique interaction. As brands invest in social customer service technology, they need to link their social efforts with their traditional CRM system, so they have access to customer history and therefore a better opportunity to resolve queries first time. This will also help to deliver consistent omni-channel service.
