They need to be pro-active so that the customer they are engaging with spreads a good word about the brand, remains loyal and most importantly, becomes a brand advocate. With an influx of multiple brands, all trying to get new customers and retain the existing ones, customer management has become a humongous task.
This becomes especially important on social media as negative publicity of a brand can completely destroy it. A negative Tweet on Twitter or a bad post on LinkedIn/Facebook with the brand hashtag is enough to do major damage to the brand. Hence, social media monitoring is a critical trend in today’s volatile customer service market. In a nutshell, companies such as Sprout Social extensively monitor social mediums, like the ones mentioned above, and search engines such as Google for conversations around a brand.
Hence, HubSpot can now work with Sprout Social on their combined consumers and deliver superior client experiences. The partnership adds the following elements in the current customer service setup for both the enterprises:
- Aligns customer success and marketing teams of both the brands.
- Routes customer messages coming from social media to service teams at lightning speeds.
- Establishes effective two-way communication.
- Provided concrete resolutions on support tickets.
- Analyzes service requests for both, Sprout Social and HubSpot.
