Community Tip: Show customer love by sending a personal follow up

At Magoosh, we show our customer love by taking the time to write a personal follow up after the customer reports an issue.

For some time, we had an automated follow up that sent out a form email to the customer after a couple days. But this wasn’t always the best experience. One of our newest employees, Anne, came up with a idea. She didn’t feel that the automated message was enough and wanted to do more. It turned out to be a great way to show customers we really care about what they are going through.

With a few tags, a new target, and an automation or two, you too can show your customers love.

The issue
We wanted an easy way to remember to follow up with our students after a certain amount of time.

Solution
We added a tag to the ticket — personal_follow_up — mark the ticket as pending, and then after a set amount of time, it opens back up with a private comment reminding the agent why the ticket has re-opened.

We can accomplish this with the following steps:

  1. URL Target for Leaving a Private Comment
  2. Create an Automation

And that’s it! Your customers will feel loved and appreciated when you start sending personal follow ups.
