Social CRM: Putting Customers First

Social CRM is hot, hot, hot in social media circles, but what does it mean? It's simply how companies are managing their relationships with their customers, and managing feedback channels that impact product innovation, brand promotion and customer support. Now that many of us as customers are using social technologies to share our needs, complaints and product suggestions, it's crucial that B2C and B2B companies are engaged in the conversation.

According to last month's Altimeter Group report, it may not be as simple as that. Beyond just being engaged, companies are having a very difficult time monitoring and analyzing the huge amount of data coming from these online conversations.

A few examples, from the blog post on the report by co-author Jeremiah Owyang:
  • Companies need to be able to anticipate what customers are doing to say and do, in order to keep up. Although Motrin responded to angry mom’s within 24 hours –even that was too slow.
  • Companies are unable to scale to meet the needs of social. No matter how many community managers Dell and ComcastCares hires to support, they’ll never be able to match the number of customers happening.  They need tools, and they need them now.
  • Customers don’t care what department you’re in they just want their problem fixed. Dooce’s support problem with Maytag quickly became a PR nightmare –had the support group known she was an influencer (and what it means), they could have serviced her better.
We're thrilled to have Jeremiah himself, Partner of Customer Strategy at Altimeter Group,
moderate a panel of experts on a topic that's relevant to everyone who uses social media.
