 Reasons why you should use a social customer service software 

Ever wonder why companies started communicating with their customers through social customer service software instead of directly on social media? It's because they were tired of monitoring different devices, sharing login credentials, and switching tabs! Do you identify with the following?

Missing the big picture

Don't know what your previous conversation with a customer  was about because it was on a different channel? LiveAgent keeps track of that.

Losing valuable time

Are you switching between a different piece of software and hardware too often? Let LiveAgent do the work for you.

Unable to react fast

Are you relying on notifications to let you know when customers reach out on social media? LiveAgent pings you immediately. 

Hard to manage

Are you managing multiple profiles on different  social networks?  With LiveAgent  you can manage them all from one dashboard.

  • Facebook
  • Facebook Messenger
  • Twitter
  • Instagram
  • Viber
  • Ticket filters enable you to search through thousands of tickets at once to view similar solutions, or to view tickets assigned to a specific agent.
  • If you are managing multiple Facebook pages for the same company, you can easily view which Facebook page received a notification.
  • Easily add internal notes regarding tickets that your customer support team can view anytime. These little notes are great if one agent has started processing a ticket, but is off work. A new agent can easily pick up where the other left off.

Facebook

Our Facebook integration eliminates the need to monitor multiple devices, accounts, and sharing login credentials. All agents can reply to tickets from your universal inbox, so there's no need to be dependant on a Facebook page admin.

Utilizing your Facebook integration is easy. Simply connect your Facebook business page (or pages!) to your LiveAgent dashboard and get started. Any direct messages,  comments on your posts, or mentions of your page will be automatically converted into tickets, to which you can reply and then archive.

Facebook Messenger

LiveAgent's Facebook Messenger integration enables you to chat in real time with your customers. When your Facebook page receives a direct message, it's instantly converted into a ticket and pushed into the LiveAgent dashboard. You can easily reply, send attachments, or even hit the "Like" button.

The main benefit is that being a part of the omni-channel help desk system enables you to see customer interactions from other channels in the same place. In addition, every message is collected inside the universal inbox, and then transformed to unified tickets with the hybrid ticket stream.

How to choose social support system?

If you have decided to start supporting your social media audience outside of the specific networks, you might want to write down all the requirements for the system. In the first round you should check if you want to move your email communication into the same place, where you will receive social media messages.

After that you might consider offering live chat support, adding an inbound call center or providing self-service support via a knowledge base. Last but not least, you might want to have a platform such as the customer portal, where users can find all their requests, submit questions to a forum or suggest improvements and provide feedback.

If you are looking for the best help desk system with social media support, comparing different alternatives is a must. The multi-channel help desk contains much more than just social media connectors. Even though you might not need every feature, having an option to add a certain channel while your business is growing is essential.

Brand Loyalty Stems from Good Service

Friendly employees or customer service representatives are what make a memorable experience that causes consumers to stick with a brand, for 73% of customers.

Providing that experience can be easy, if you know what it entails. According to Shep Hyken, an expert in customer service, customer support representatives should answer in a timely manner, in a personalized way and never forget to ask the extra questions. For example, if a customer asks you to solve their problem quickly, ask them how quickly so expectations can be met or lowered. 

Remember, loyal customers increase ROI because they tend to purchase more.
