Brands are leaving people frustrated 59% of companies monitor for mentions in 2014; down from 70% in 2010 #SMDAYMIA June 29, 2014
Step one: plan Get positive stories out there on a regular basis Encourage your happy customers to leave reviews online Have specific steps for how you will make things right Refund? Coupon? Lifetime supply of tacos? Customer service email (with a real person behind it) or phone number set the expectation internally – 4 hours or 24 hours to resolve it? Empower your staff to make the decision & make it easy #SMDAYMIA June 29, 2014
Step two: Monitor Use hootsuite, nutshell mail, tweetdeck , Facebook notifications or twitter search Have more than one so you don’t miss a beat If you don’t, someone else will… maybe even your competition #SMDAYMIA June 29, 2014

Please Do Not Feed the Trolls. It is unkind and unnecessary.
Step four: offer to resolve it Do it IN public on the channel it appeared Ask the person to: Send a dm Call a specific phone number Send an email If you know the customer, contact them directly #SMDAYMIA June 29, 2014
Deliver on the promise If your handle says “cares”, then show you care & stop selling to me. #SMDAYMIA June 29, 2014
Step five: Learn from it Always look to improve customer service Was it avoidable? Is there a missed opportunity? #SMDAYMIA June 29, 2014
