336: Joshua March, Social Media Messaging

Joshua March, bestselling author and Founder of Conversocial, shares how social media messaging helps create better customer experiences while cutting customer service costs. Social media messaging has evolved to become another tool that allows businesses to connect with their customers, enhancing their customer experience. Some businesses have gone as far as using instant messaging services similar to WhatsApp and ICQ (learn more about and download icq here) to improve their customer journey. For many businesses, social media has become the new way of marketing. These social media platforms help companies to interact and engage with their customers easily. Of course, before you can consider interacting with your customers, you need to build an online presence first. To begin building their audiences, many companies will purchase some followers to get their account going. If you’re looking to do something similar, you could use nitreo for your insta. That should help you to build your Instagram account, ensuring that more people follow it and engage with your posts. From there, it’s likely that you’ll be receiving more direct messages and questions through social media. Before using these sorts of tools it’s always wise to research them online first and read their reviews in case they are not worth investing in. For example, one controversial Instagram tool called Kicksta were reviewed recently and you can find it online. Having said this, social media is mainly positive for your business. Social media is one of the best ways to interact with your customers, so be sure to create social media platforms. If you’re not looking to use social media for business purposes but rather to get in touch with a diverse range of people around the world to discuss a plethora of interesting subjects, you may want to check out platforms like Speakrandom to have a random chat now as you please – that’s what social media was intended for, after all.
