Knowing Your Twitter Reputation
Service companies beware! With social media becoming more and more prevalent in today’s society, tales of bad service experiences can rapidly spread to hundreds of people in a matter of seconds. In a competitive environment such as this, customer service has never been more important for business. And in a tight economy, personal recommendations from friends, family, and like business people are becoming more and more important to consumers.
In the world of service, one upset customer can now easily tweet to hundreds of followers about their personal experience; quickly putting the reputation of service companies of all kinds at risk.
But don’t take my word for it. Below is just a sampling of today’s tweets from “patiently” waiting customers…
