The first rule of any business should be to retain customers and thereby avoid customer acquisition costs.
Yet, most companies focus more on customer acquisition than on retention.
Truth: Providing excellent customer service is the easiest and least expensive way to be successful.
Here are some quick tips you can put to use right away.
2. Etiquette matters.
We may live in a world where Casual Friday is every day, but that doesn’t mean we should stop saying, “please” or “thank you” or “you’re welcome.”
3. Everything is a presentation.
Think of customer service as your own TV show. I believe it was Thomas Jefferson who said, “Always act as if you’re on television.”
4. Forget that nonsense about people not judging.
Customers and others are judging us all the time.
5. Keep learning.
Become a student of all things related to customer service, such as body language, psychology, and the art of persuasion. More on persuasion in this short blog post.
