“A business needs more than excellent products, good technical service, efficient procedures, and more competitive prices to win customers. “It also needs to truly connect with its customers through authentic, human-to- human interactions that satisfy not only their practical needs, but their emotional wants.” – Lee Cockerell, in ‘The Customer Rules’ What is Customer Satisfaction?
Look sharp, stay on your toes Make eye contact, smile, be genuine Telephone and etiquette If you pass the buck, we’re out of luck Service NOW, or explain WHEN Tell the customer, ‘I’m Here for You’ after you understand their problem, or say it at the end of your call/visit/ . “Mr. Smith, I’m sorry, and I’m here for you to work this out.” “Mrs. Doe, thank you for calling. Remember I’m here for you. Call any time.” How Can You Enhance Customer Satisfaction?
Incompetence : Nobody seemed to have a clue what they were doing Neglected: I was kept waiting and they ignored me Guilty: They treated me as though it was my fault Failure to follow-up: They never got back to me or I had to chase them. The Blame Game: blamed it on the system, the managers, the computers, their suppliers etc. Couldn’t be bothered: They were busy and I was an interruption and a distraction from their other work. Poor customer service feedback would include:
They highlight our mistakes, and trends in our customers’ wants and needs. This gives us a chance to do better! Customers don’t just complain for the sake of it! How we manage the complaint is crucial to our reputation and likely determines whether they will do business with us again. How would you feel when you make a valid complaint, and the organization/company dismissed, ignored or blamed it on you? Every Complaint is a Gift
Ever been abused by a customer? Of course you have. Please remember, the issue may be quite legitimate. However, … We never know what is going on in that person’s world; don’t take it personally. We are in control over how we react and respond. Don’t respond in anger or irritation. Never say, “No!” unless it’s, “No problem!” Limit abuse by saying, “Unless we can have a respectful talk, I’ll need to end this conversation and try again another time.” Abusive Customers
The Vesta Vow calls for: Gracious Greetings Enjoyable Experiences Fond Farewells. Take a moment to think of an example where you exceeded expectations, or made the client’s experience memorable, or offered a random act of kindness.
