Holiday shopping season is here… but who will getting your business and social feedback?

The key to a profitable and joyful holiday retail season is ensuring exceptional customer service across all channels where customer interactions and feedback occur. Social media is increasingly becoming the most popular choice of ways to complain. Over 1 MILLION people view Tweets alone about customer service – a staggering 80% of those are negative.

Before you open your doors to the last-minute frenzied shoppers, ask yourself these questions:

  1. Are all your employees clear on your company goals?
  2. Are your employees portraying a positive and friendly interaction as the shopper enters the store?
  3. Are you treating your employees the way you want them to treat your customers?
  4. Is your customer service department and contact center is ready for this influx of calls and customer requests?
