  • Keep Calm TSPRA themeRunning late? Keep Calm and TSPRA On.

    There may be weather issues in some parts of the state, but it's a balmy 35 degrees in San Antonio right now, and as our chosen theme for this year indicates, the conference must go on. We're here until Thursday, so if you're delayed or your travel plans are otherwise disrupted, we'd encourage you to travel safe and get here when you can.

    GOOD TO KNOW

    Tips for using Twitter to provide customer service:

    - Respond quickly. Don't leave questions until tomorrow. Provide an answer as soon as possible once you see the question to build a positive experience. 

    Create an FAQ. If you get the same kinds of questions all the time on Twitter, then go ahead and compile them into an FAQ that will help people find their answers without having to take the time to ask. 

    Know when to move problems on. If it's something you don't think you'll be able to solve via Twitter, then go ahead and direct them to an email or a phone number.
