The client is a multinational retail corporation that operates a chain of department and grocery stores.
This international retailer receives more than 14 million social media mentions a year. The reality is not all of the mentions require a response from the brand. For example, some customers simply tweet about having visited the store. The business challenge comes down to limited resources. With such large volume, how do you filter through the noise to find the actionable posts?
Part of the volume stems from 6,000+ local store pages, where customers are demanding an answer to their question or a resolution to their poor shopping experience. The client wants their customers’ experience on Facebook to mirror the friendliness of their neighborhood store.
The client needs to minimize negative sentiment and social media incidents that can negatively affect the company’s online reputation.
Traditional social media efforts are fragmented across brand teams, and customer care issues are not typically optimized for resolution. Other brands will simply send the customer to an 800 number or an online form, causing a high-effort and negative customer experience.
HGS teamed up with a leading social enterprise platform as well as with the client’s existing PR agency to provide the ultimate end-to-end social engagement solution. Together the three companies brought the right people, expertise, process, AI, automation, and analytics to address all of the obstacles the client was encountering on social media.
We have a team of 100 brand ambassadors who possess the right skills and talents to effectively engage customers on social media. They participate in an extensive four-week training program covering topics such as understanding the top contact drivers, e-commerce objectives and techniques, the rules of engagement, writing using the brand voice, spotting a crisis, engaging with influencers, and more. Additionally, the advocates are supported by a team of leaders and analysts with significant experience in modern digital customer engagement.
Our digital customer engagement game plan includes rules of engagement and best practices, process and workflow, quality, case management and design, reporting and KPIs, ideal agent profile, and training program. We ensure all customer engagement opportunities are handled quickly, be they in-channel resolution or amplification of brand love.
