Salesforce Tips for Success Customer Service

If you’re looking for a more effective way to provide your customers with a seamless experience in the modern digital era, Salesforce Social Customer Service may be just the ticket.

Great customer service applied through the platform turns into great marketing, too, making the technology cross-departmentally favorable.

More and more customers are turning to social media networks like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to get their customer service issues resolved, so marketers and customer service reps both must be fluent in addressing needs across channels.

A customer may address their problem, initially, on one platform, and expect follow-up on another. Depending on the size and reach of your organization, this can be a tremendous amount and variation of support tickets.

Salesforce’s Social Studio helps address these concerns and more with Automate features that you can use in combination with your Social Customer Service development strategy.

Automate features you may take advantage of to address customers needs across multiple channels include:

  • Listen to the right conversations
  • Flag and prioritize conversations
  • Classify conversations
  • Tag the source
  • Escalate the conversation, if necessary
  • Assign the post to the appropriate team member

The intelligence and personalization capabilities of the technology will enable the success of your customer service reps, marketers, and organization as a collective.

The biggest takeaways you should be concerned with, addressing what’s possible with Salesforce Social Customer Service and how you can apply its functionality to benefit your business, are:
