Customer Service Just Got Easier In 2017
Galore Mag

Customer service; two words that tend to make people roll their eyes immediately. There are companies out there that are known for having an excellent customer service department, such as Amazon. And there are some that simply lack in that area, such as United Airlines.

Nevertheless, customer service has become easier in ways you’d never imagine.

Social Media

This is where social media is considered a powerful tool. Platforms such as Twitter are becoming home to a section of many companies customer support departments. For instance, Snapchat and Verizon allow their users to tweet them for immediate help. So get out your smartphone and type away, well up to 140 characters that is.

Conversational commerce also plays a huge role in the use of social media in terms of customer service tactics. By utilizing apps such as Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp, it eliminates the burden of having to call or email a company’s customer service department.

The option of texting

Yes, we said texting. Companies such as Text Request offer instant communication with your customers, to alleviate the stress that comes with contacting customer service. The idea behind this is that we’re so connected to our smartphones, therefore we might as well use them for good.

Live Chats

Live Chats are becoming more popular as well. This allows customers to chat customer service representatives and receive help as quickly as possible. Tools such as LiveChat and Freshdesk give companies an easy customer service alternative. Both tools integrate with your website, allowing for a simple user experience.


More and more companies are beginning to send out surveys to get a better idea of how they can help resolve customer issues timely and efficiently. Surveys allow a company to gain customer trust and improve every day. Loft sends out a user survey after shopping with them to make sure your experience was perfect!

Customer service is one part of every company that will never go away. Customers will always need help, and they want that help immediately. So why not utilize one of the many customer service tools to make everyone’s lives a little less stressful?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine.

When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
