Considerations to manage comments on social media (all actions are based on customer service)
- Tone and conversation: The community manager must use the first person plural in the name of Hotel Universel Quebec. He must also use a familiar tone in order that the audience feels involved.
- Respect: It matters to respect the Internet users’ different opinions. The person in charge of web communications must never deny a negative comment; but, rather attempt to understand it or find a solution.
- Transparency: It is important to identify oneself when leaving a comment to a response. This enables Internet users to know exactly who is talking to them. When it is a negative comment, the manager must give the impression that the situation is very important to him and that he will do his best to resolve the issue.
- Politeness: The manager must use polite forms when exchanging with an Internet user.
- Accessibility and intervention’s rapidity: Since internet is instantaneous, the Internet user expects an answer as soon as possible. Therefore, one must answer as fast as possible.
- Redirection: In the case of negative comments and complaints, a transparent response is needed on the social platform directly. One must try to contact personally the plaintiff in order to gather as much detail as possible. If the situation goes further, the plaintiff will be under the Hotel Universel Quebec’s jurisdiction.
