Customer Service: Make a Video

4 Nov

Customer ServiceSince the dawn of time, customer service has always needed improvement. If you’re not on hold, you’re busy being transferred from person to person or listening to automated recordings.

Progressive Media Concepts - Social Media Marketing and Management If you have been reading Progressive Media Concept’s previous blog posts, you know how often we stress the importance of engaging your consumers.
