Responsive to Customers' Online Requests; Study Shows Huge Opportunity for

/PRNewswire/ -- A new study of social media customer
service practices highlights a major opportunity for companies to improve client
satisfaction through better social media outreach, according to Socialbakers,
the leading social media analytics provider. Defining a new standard of "Socially
Devoted" companies, the Socialbakers study identifies businesses that succeed
with open and responsive social communications. Socially Devoted companies
can serve as role models, demonstrating how businesses worldwide can drive
customer engagement by adopting more reactive and open social media
strategies.
"By defining Socially Devoted companies, we wanted to start a discussion in the
industry," said Socialbakers CEO Jan Rezab. "Socially Devoted companies
communicate openly, actively respond to fans and make sure customers
receive a quick answer to feedback or questions. Socially Devoted companies
set a new global standard that other businesses can adopt to improve their
social media marketing strategy."
Research Shows Incredible Opportunity to Expand Social Engagement
The Socialbakers research study revealed:
On average, companies respond to only 30 percent of social media fans' feedback.
Local companies tend to have higher social media response rates than their global
counterparts, with 40 percent responding to customer queries.
More than 25 percent of global companies have a closed wall on Facebook, meaning
users can't post questions or feedback.
U.S.-based companies tend to perform less effectively on social media channels than
their regional peers.
In the new study, the most Socially Devoted companies are those that respond
to feedback quickly and have the highest number of wall posts on Facebook.
Rezab observes that Facebook performance is only a starting point;
Socialbakers encourages companies worldwide to embrace other social media
elements, including live chat functions and platforms like Twitter, as a part of
their social media marketing strategy.

The Socialbakers study provides interesting insights on specific industries that
demonstrate high levels of social devotion. The telecommunications and mobile
industry is by far the most Socially Devoted, with 13 of the top 20 Socially
Devoted brands coming from that sector. Airline and financial services
companies also perform well in the study.
The study indicates that a mobile operator in
South America
– Personal
Argentina – is a stellar role model as a Socially Devoted company, answering
thousands of queries via social media channels with an average response time
of just four minutes.
Socialbakers provides limited information on company rankings to
organizations researched free of charge. It's a valuable service since social
media platforms are increasingly becoming the preferred method for
communication. That means it's important for companies to find out where
they stand. It's also increasingly clear that social media outreach is not just one
option among many; it's a necessity.
Socialbakers developed the Socially Devoted standard as a benchmark
companies can use to see where they rank in terms of social media
performance as compared to competitors and to gauge their progress as they
take steps to improve their Socially Devoted rank. Responsive social media
communications can be a great tool to upsell products and services and build
positive customer relationships. But it's also important to note that a lack of
responsiveness can harm customer relationships, which makes a high Socially
Devoted commitment even more crucial as consumers gravitate toward social
media platforms as their primary communication mode.

social analytics platform that delivers actionable insights marketers and
