Around 300 consumers* who are active Internet users participated in a survey focusing on how customer service influences brand reputation as evidenced in social media. Top findings include:

59% of respondents used social media to ‘vent’ about a customer service experience.

74% chose companies/brands based on others’ customer service experiences shared online.

81% believed that blogs, online rating systems and discussion forums can give consumers a greater voice in customer service, but less than 33% believed that businesses take customers’ opinions seriously.

If you already know that your Potential Prospects are using Social Media, Why Not?

Using Social Media for Business is not only smart, it is almost REQUIRED nowadays. If someone searches for you and your company and they find nothing, that is actually a red flag and may prevent that person from buying your product, service or joining your opportunity.

Why is Social Media important? Because your prospects are already using it to check out the products that they buy.
