Customer service has become a cliché term in the business world. It is used all the time and no one really knows what it is but everyone thinks they do. One of the most common phrases in customer service is “The customer is always right.” Well, what about when the customer is wrong? What do you do then? That is where customer service comes into play, not just yielding to every complaint of a disgruntled shopper or client.
While customer service is an integral part of your business and should be attended to very carefully, it is important to balance the interest of your own business and the desires of the buyer when addressing customer service issues. The bottom line of any business is to make money. This “customer is always right” attitude often proves costly and irritating when your customer service rep has to place them on hold several times or transfer them to different avenues of service just to resolve their inquiry. The key to a great customer service experience is not to dazzle your customers with free offers or promotional items, but rather to provide clear and simple processes to accomplish the basic requirements.
One of the easiest ways to accomplish this is by training your customer service reps in a consistent way and enforcing specific policies that keep the procedure simple and direct. When your customer service reps have this uniform training it will be easy for them to follow this mode of handling calls and other customer issues in the same way every time.
This form of customer service will streamline the ordering process, offer direct answers to buyer’s questions, and help to create a returning customer that is always satisfied with your business. It is these customers that are your greatest asset when doing business and will lead to an increase in your bottom line.
