In the service layer, we are talking about the expectations – both internal and external. Internal expectations are those that your “employees expect.” External expectations, on the other hand, refers to what your “customers expect.” This layer is all about managing customer expectations but this is implemented in various levels for each segment and social CRM channel that you are using. This means that the implementation of this layer must be in accordance to the different levels.

For instance, the specific function of a business on different social channels must be considered in order to deliver in a timely fashion. In some cases, you have to make promises or claims and over-deliver afterwards. If you think it is too much for you to promise – don’t do it, as simple as that. People would appreciate you more if you know how to be honest with what you can or cannot do. The service layer is a rule you need to implement in order to govern business functions related to customer satisfaction and experience.
