Marketing and Customer Service Merge: How to Manage Socially Integrated Channels
When customers publicly address your company on Twitter or Facebook, who should respond: marketing, or customer service? And what, in the social media age, is the difference?
Traditionally living in separate silos within large enterprises, these two functions have come under pressure with the advance of popular social computing, with the customer often defining the public circumstances under which engagement takes place. Customers don't distinguish between departments of your organization when reaching out, and poor online service can cripple marketing efforts - so it’s incumbent on businesses to adapt to the new, integrated reality of customer interaction.
Listen to the archive of this webinar as panelists explore the ways in which large companies are changing to be more responsive to and understanding of their customers:
- Where does the integration begin?
- How do marketing and customer service coordinate and share data?
- Does marketing touch the customer in much the same way that customer services do?
- Does marketing own customer service now? Or vice versa?
