High-Tech, High-Touch Customer Service does this by teaching readers the six major customer trends and what they mean for business; the eight unbreakable rules for social media customer service; how to effectively address online complainers and saboteurs on Yelp, Twitter, TripAdvisor, and other forums; how to understand and leverage the rising power of self-service; and how to build a company culture that breeds stellar customer service.With special features including lessons from the latest newsworthy customer service blunders, you'll be equipped to retool old-fashioned customer service and turn time-strapped, screen-addicted, value-savvy, and socially engaged critics into fervent loyal customers who help your business thrive.
