Social Media can give Jamaican brands a second act in reinventing their Customer Service Culture

indinewsOur Founder Ingrid Riley was interviewed by the Jamaica Gleaner’s Tech Time . They asked “Which technology are you eager to see on the market? “

Her Answer: I want to see social media being used more by Jamaican businesses not just for hype and me-too online contests which only interrupt customers and talk at them like traditional media. I want to see social media technologies including mobile apps, being used to really redefine and develop a closer relationship with customers. Our customer service culture in Jamaica is simply put not good, so social media I believe gives Jamaican businesses and organisations the opportunity for a second act, i hope they take it. Social media as become the defacto platform on which the world now lives, work, play and do business, so adapting to the needs of a more connected consumer is crucial to a business surviving and thriving.”

    It’s so true the Caribbean’s customer service can take shape with social media… It is what has changed the way service is viewed in the UK – most customers here use twitter to make complaints and talk about their customer experience – a huge change in a conservative society (just like the Caribbean’s). Comments are instantly heard and dealt with if there’s a problem. Looking forward to seeing more from GetConnectid.com

    Thanks Rhonda. And yes Social Media can turnaround our customer service culture from the inside out if they are open and want to remain relevant and growing as a business.
