How Social Media Can Help Brands Improve Customer Service Somehow, somewhere along the line, consumer behavior shifted away from calling a business on the phone to simply pulling up their website or social media on their mobile device. Now, businesses can have a strong presence in a customer’s mind without that person even setting foot outside of their home. This omnipresence can be beneficial, particularly when it comes to customer service.

The Demise of SXSW has Been Greatly Exaggerated

Over the past several years, it’s become chic in the industry to dump on SXSW. The renowned Austin business festival is all out of steam, bereft of ideas, and all-around stale… or so the critics would have us believe.
