Configure Social Profile | Online Help - Bigin by Zoho CRM

Configure Social Profile

Social media has completely changed the way we communicate, market, sell and offer customer service. This helps in getting an idea about what your prospects are looking for, what interests them, etc. as they take all their feedbacks and suggestions online. It will prove costly to miss out on those valuable inputs. That's why Social in Bigin has been introduced to ease this process. By integrating your Twitter account, you can see all the interactions from Bigin itself. Further, Signals gives you a heads up if someone mentions/tweets or sends a personal message. This helps you stay connected with the day to day responses from the social world.
