Customer service: the risk of social media fatigue

customer service social media Social media is still a black and white world, customers like it or they don't. Interestingly a shade of gray has appeared recently with a number of social media converts complaining of fatigue and returning to more traditional ways of communication such as handwriting. If the trend setters are already considering a switch away from social media, customer service executives have to consider very carefully their customer relationship management strategy: heavy investment in the new digital marketing world should be matched with proper stocking up of pens and paper.

  1. "heavy investment in...digital marketing...should be matched with proper stocking up of pens and paper" I take the point but that's a lot of stationery! There is something compelling about receiving a hand written letter - it's more personable. My aim is to delight my customers often and realistically that's only possible using digital tech. But when you want to really pleasantly surprise service users a hand written note is hard to beat.
