Customer experience (CX) is one of the biggest buzzwords in business today. Every aspect of your business — from marketing to customer support — impacts your CX. Social media has become one of the most consistent, daily touch points brands have to foster stronger customer experience connections.

Here are five ways to connect Twitter to your larger CX goals.

Bring your customer support on Twitter

When customers have a question or concern, customer service is critical. Speed, friendliness, knowledge, and issue resolution all influence the CX. Forbes notes that 72% of millennials and 47% of adults age 45 and over are more loyal to brands that respond to social feedback than those that don’t. 

@XboxSupport takes a proactive approach to customer service on Twitter. Not only do they respond to concerns, but they use social channels to alert users to account and game-related issues.

Recognize and appreciate customers

Customer recognition matters in the age of CX. Brands that find ways to engage, share content, and connect with customers are the ones that get ahead. Tweets that directly recognizes, appreciates, and engages with customers on topics they care about is especially powerful.

Share useful content in customer interactions

Connect with customers by sharing helpful videos, online resources, or relevant blog articles for a quick, personalized resolution.

Humanize your brand

As brand relationships evolve, part of delivering a good CX means speaking directly to customers. Personalization and relevance are content and technology cornerstones. But it’s also critical to add a human touch to your interactions with customers. Conveying humor, warmth, and engaging with customers all help bring that human dimension into play.
