You can easily identify the number of interested people in your product and services using these platforms. Learning about the interested customers in your services encourages you to make it better and as per customer’s demand.

  • More Engagement with Potential Customers: When you post different content related to your services on your business profile, people start interacting and showing their interest in the product. Many of them provide positive feedback while many express their dissatisfaction. Owners should consider it as an opportunity to engage with their customers directly and find out what they feel about their products and services. All the positive and negative feedback from the audiences is a lesson for the owners to provide better services to their audiences. When the customer gets an instant thank you or apology for their dissatisfaction, trust is built among them. They feel that their feedback matters to the organization and this encourages their loyalty to the brand. They comment, share, and tag people on social media platforms which helps in generating more traffic on the page.

  • Customer Service: As it is mentioned earlier also in the article, social media platforms are open to people who like and dislike the products. An unsatisfied customer feels free to complain about the product services and it is the responsibility of the owner to consider those comments.
