When are “Ums” while recording a video ok, and when should it not be used?
Support communication has evolved. Where once phones were the primary way to solve issues, that shifted to email, then real-time chat and text, and slowly into bots and automation. Each of these mediums has its pros and cons. Texts, for example, are fast and personal but harder to convey complex solutions or steps like an email. In comparison, phone calls have the same quick and personal traits and often make it easier to describe complexity but lack any ability to provide visuals or reference material. You can use video to bridge these gaps. Susana de Sousa, Senior Manager of Customer Support at Loom, believes that adding video across all support services can improve customer communication. The power of video within support helps to remove the barriers of other communication channels.
