The Social Customer Service Era: 10 Simple Steps [Infographic]
Recently on the introNetworks Blog, we talked about a few ways the social enterprise can prosper. One of the items on the list recommended a flattening of the organizational hierarchy as a means of promoting co-value creation and collaboration. Continuing along those same lines, the social customer service field has been dramatically flattened in recent years as well. The space social customer service representatives currently occupy is among the people; the customers. Your customers. A modern CS department is a Social Customer Service Department, and it is a living breathing entity, adding authenticity to the overall customer experience.
