The age of messaging
Today Peter Friedman, CEO of LiveWorld, joins us for a fascinating update on the present and future of customer service messaging.
Large brands like Walmart and American Express are leveraging new technology to engage customers like never before. Through powerful apps, businesses now engage customers every day, wherever they are, to build more meaningful relationships.
But this isn’t just for big brands! Customer service messaging, as Peter explains, is helping to level the playing field. Small and medium businesses are now able to take on the big guys, but only if they’re willing to use these capabilities wisely. It’s not just about helping customers when they need you, or offering omnichannel support.
It’s about creating relationships where customers are more committed, then inspiring them to become advocates.
How will customer service messaging help create more meaningful relationships for your customers? Listen in to find out!
