Social media is fast becoming the customer’s service channel of choice. However, for many organizations, their social customer care offering has grown organically and is managed in an ad hoc way.

Whilst this can work in the short term, it poses significant risks to organizations and does not allow servicing to scale effectively and for organizations to recognize genuine business results from their efforts.

If you think that your social media customer service might need some improvement, take our simple maturity test and we will contact you to arrange a free consultation to discuss our recommendations for you (or, if you prefer, we can send you a simple report with suggestions on how you can improve). The test should take about 5 minutes. Please answer Yes or No to the following statements.
