DALLAS, Aug. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Social Media Club of Dallas, a premier networking and education organization dedicated to marketing and new media, along with platinum sponsor, Sprint, is proud to announce that its August 16th meeting will feature a panel of social customer care experts moderated by Bryan Person, Director of Social Insights for Social Dynamx. Bryan and panelists Tony Turnage of FedEx, Sean Valderas of Nokia and Mike Cearley of Fleishman-Hillard will discuss the challenges that businesses and brands face in building a successful customer service operation in a social world, including:
- Customers' impatience and expectation of instant responses
- Confusion associated with tracking posts across multiple channels
- Using social tools that weren't designed to support customer service
- Tracking the elusive ROI of customer service
- Communicating with customers in a public forum
The panel will educate the audience on how to overcome these challenges and deliver exceptional social customer service to customers and fans.
"More than ever, customers are reaching out to companies on social media when they have customer service issues and questions," said Bryan Person. "And when they do, they *expect* a response -- and fast. I look forward to discussing how businesses and brands are adapting to this new reality during our panel."
The meeting will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 16, 2012, at the Angelika Film Center Dallas in Mockingbird Station.
