Customer experience (or CX) is a buzz word that has taken over the industry in the last couple years. And heads up - it is here to stay. This is something your business NEEDS to focus on in 2020 and beyond. So let’s break it down. We know every business is focused on providing excellent customer service to their customers.

Social media marketing is an integral part of a modern business. When done right, it helps increase brand awareness, generate leads, and foster relationships with customers. When done poorly, it can negatively impact customer perceptions and hurt your brand.

You can tell a lot about a company (or even a person!) from a social media page. For example, are disgruntled customers tweeting at the brand, or leaving nasty comments about not receiving their orders on time or getting a defective product? Comments like those might cause you to question making a purchase. Understanding this is a key part of your overall marketing strategy.
