Impeccable Rapport

Customer Experience Tip #1591

When a customer has done their homework and made an effort to understand your industry, assume that they also have a need and a willingness to learn from you … and remember to compliment them for being smart and further ahead than most.

Impeccable E-mailing

Customer Experience Tip #1590

When a customer or client e-mails you with a question, they are hoping for a (prompt) answer to their question… or at least an acknowledgment of their message being received. Set a reasonable time standard for yourself and your team and commit to never compromising that standard.

Impeccable Mission

Customer Experience Tip #1589

“Rethinking service can have a profound impact on your organization and who you serve.

Customer Experience Tip #1585

“It’s very difficult to reason with someone if their hair is on fire. Customer service (whether you’re a school principal, a call center or a consultant) can’t begin until the person you’re working with believes that you’re going to help them put out the fire on their head.” –Seth Godin

Impeccable Impressions

Customer Experience Tip #1584

Impeccable Appreciation

Customer Experience Tip #1583

Do you value your clients? Do they know that; can they feel it? …are you sure?

Impeccable Recovery

Customer Experience Tip #1582
