“Conversations are the most effective way of getting to know customer needs and satisfying them.”
Local store promotes a current in-store offer, using a photograph to grab people’s attention, plus local, relevant and brand hashtags to target the audience.
Customer responds with a query, which is answered promptly - demonstrating great customer service. The use of a photo helps to confirm the answer and shows effort.
The conversation is continued, with the store colleague offering to reserve the item - converting the conversation into a sale.
The customer is happy and impressed with the service and plans to visit the store to complete her purchase.
“Social Retail have been pivotal in the evolution of the our multi-channel marketing strategy. The ‘tweeting from the shop floor’ initiative has enabled selected stores to engage with an additional audience directly from the shop floor in real-time, promoting events and products as well as providing instant customer service and a unique insight into how the store works.”
