5 Effective Customer Support Communication Channels For Your Business

Customer support can help you build goodwill, increase sales and retain customers. But choosing the right customer support channel can take time and effort. So you want to use the medium that works best for your business—not just because it’s popular or easy but also because it will grow your business’s revenue and make them more profitable over time.

This blog will discuss 5 important communication channels for your business.

1. Live Chat:

Live chat can be used for customer service, sales, and general inquiries. Making it easier to resolve issues quickly. If you have many visitors or your business serves multiple countries, live chat might be the best option for your company.

2. Email:

Email is small businesses’ most common support channel, but there are better choices for high-value customers. It’s also not a good choice if you’re a B2B company with many clients at once; email can be slow and cumbersome to use when many people are involved in the process, especially if they’re all communicating with each other through their own emails.

For example: If you have 1,000 customers who need different things from you daily (like support or product information), an email will take too long to get through all those requests without slowing down your sales team’s workflow significantly—and makes them less efficient overall!

3. Social Media:

Social media is a great way to engage with your customers and promote your brand, products, and services. You can use social media for customer support as well.

Social networks are full of relevant content to your business—and it’s also an effective way of finding out what people want from you before they ask for it. So if you have an active presence on Facebook or Twitter, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be using those platforms as part of your customer service strategy!

4. Phone Calls:

Phone calls are the most expensive channel to use. However, they’re also the easiest to use once you have a phone number that is easy for your customers to remember and dial.

You should also ensure that your phone number is local to your customers—if they live in California, don’t use a toll-free number from New York!

5. Forums:

Forums are a great way to get help with technical issues, but there are better channels for non-technical questions. Forums can be frustrating if you’re looking for help with something on your product or service that needs an obvious answer. And if you need professional advice on marketing or customer service, there may be better options than forums.

That said, there are times when forums can be beneficial:

When you have a question about using your product (e.g., “How do I create my own custom code?”).

When someone has some kind of experience that could benefit from sharing it with others—maybe they’ve had trouble installing software before and would like some tips from other users who have succeeded in establishing it themselves; perhaps there’s something about using the app in general which was unclear for them; maybe someone else just wants their opinion heard on whether this particular choice makes sense given what we know now about our business goals and objectives…the possibilities are endless!


Customer Support is the way to go if you’re looking for a way to connect with customers. It’s fast, easy, and fun. And it can also lead to more sales because of how quickly and easily people can communicate with each other.
