Winning Through Customer Service
While winning customers may be hard, keeping them is even harder. So what do customers really want?
They want quick responses, instant information, and solutions to their problems. They want exceptional customer service. No organization can afford to lose customers because of poor service, but many do. Customers remember how they've been treated and spread the news. Studies show that they are likely never to buy from you again, even if you have exactly what hey are looking for.
In today 's high tech and demanding consumer market, customer service is mission critical. When customers are pleased, they're likely to spend more on your product or service and will call again. When customer service representatives understand their role in this, they will keep customers coming back.
