Most of us have been using social media in our personal lives for years and even decades, to connect with family and friends, to share our views on the world, and to find new content that we’ll love.
Personal social media accounts are relatively straightforward — you can handle them pretty much however you want, and you can also choose to disengage with them entirely or take breaks from using your accounts.
But when it comes to social media for your business, the stakes are higher.
For the last few months Nextiva Cares has partnered and dedicated time to more than one philanthropic event. For four years, Nextiva has had a special partnership with the ALS Association. The ALS Association is the only national non-profit organization that is helping the fight against Lou Gehrig’s Disease. The association strives to build hope and enhance the quality of life for the individuals who struggle with the incurable disease, while aggressively searching for new treatments. Nextiva has contributed to ALS through volunteer support and financial charity to help their research efforts.
When you think customer service multiple phrases probably come to mind.
“How can I help you today?”
“The customer is always right”
“We understand you are upset…”
“We are here to help!”
The list of commonly used phrases could probably go on for days. We’ve heard them when at restaurants, retail stores, paying the bills – basically everywhere. Customer service is embedded into the DNA of every business (except probably the DMV), and should be handled with the highest regard. It’s far too often overlooked and can severely negative affect a business if not prioritized and executed effectively. Did you know that it takes twelve positive experiences to make up for one unresolved negative experience? Throw in the fact that bad customer service spreads quicker and reaches about 2 times as many ears than a positive experience. With statistics like this, you might want to rethink your business’ customer service strategy, if you haven’t done so already.
Nextiva understands that offering prime customer service along with prime products generates an unbeatable company. Amazing Service is at the foundation of our culture, but it was only attained through trial and error.
So buckle up —we’re about to make your life easier and help your business grow faster with these top customer service mistakes you should avoid.
