Some important things to remember: Consider increasing the hours your customer service teams are available, make sure that procedures are in place to get messages that need responses immediately, and be empathetic. Give customer service reps as much power as possible to solve client problems, especially over the holidays, because the holidays can be stressful and sometimes things can be heated on social channels.
