What customer expectations do social media managers need to know today?

A recent Emplifi report dives into what people expect from their social media experiences with brands like yours.

A brand’s ability to forge deep relationships with its customers – and to be more than just a product or service provider – has never been more essential. As consumers increasingly turn to social media through their customer journey, brands must have a solid understanding of what they actually expect from their social media experiences. With this knowledge, brands can be better prepared to devise solid social media management, marketing, and care strategies.

To learn more about consumer expectations on social media, Emplifi commissioned Harris Interactive to survey over 1,000 US consumers and the results are highlighted in Emplifi’s report, 7 key consumer expectations impacting social media success today. This report looks at key consumer expectations all brands should know about in order to improve their social media strategy, and optimize their social customer care efforts.
