Full Episode Details
The Sam’s Club Deep Dive is a new five-part series offers a detailed look into how a big business manages social strategies, scheduling, business growth, community, and more.
For many, social media is the first port of call for customers with questions or complaints. It’s often the fastest way a brand can directly contact its customers.
This means that businesses, big or small, need to think about how they approach customer care on social. With a big business such as Sam’s Club, this operation is a lot more elaborate.
Find out how in this episode of Social Pros Deep Dive. In part four of five, Social Pros speak with MacKenzie McCarver and Tina Parker – key members of the social media team at Sam’s Club.
Director of Social Media, MacKenzie, is back from our talk in part three, this time joined by Tina Parker, Associate Director of Brand and Social Marketing.
They discuss Sam’s Club’s refreshingly proactive take on customer care, the best way to interact over social media, and how the club celebrates its brand ambassadors.
All five episodes are out now, so get ready to binge!
