I think there’s some very insightful points in your pitfalls Erika, really enjoyed the article! Whenever I advise on social CRM requirements for retailer users, I commonly have to highlight the need to actively use the data they’re gaining from their social media management efforts – not to let it simply become a reactive mechanism. Luckily with Maximizer CRM you can track and monitor all key social media data to find insightful strengths and weaknesses of your approach.
