Create Authentic Social Care Teams

Providing outstanding customer care has never been easier thanks to social media. Before the internet, a telephone call was the best way for brands to interact with their customers. Nowadays, customers are more inclined to ‘hit you up’ on social rather than choose to speak to you over the phone.

Social media customer care is critical, so how can you make sure your social care team is performing at the highest standard?

Lisa Blackshear, Sr. Vice President of Communications, Digital Media at Comcast, is our guest on this throwback episode of the show. Lisa runs what could possibly be one of the largest customer care programs in the country with over 400 agents interacting with customers and resolving issues across every social channel imaginable.

With everything going on in the world right now, having a strong customer care team in place is so important and providing genuine, human interactions is what will set you apart from your competition and keep customers coming back for more.
