More from Dean Lindsay on Customer Service…

In tough economic times, Customer service IS the difference between success and failure.  But always remember, If we want our external customer service to be first rate, our internal customer service must be first rate first.

 

The need is undeniable, the concepts are easy to understand, proactive, caring, knowledgeable customer service is far too often not happening.   It helps to widen our perspective as to what a customer is.

 

Anyone affected, positively or negatively, by the work we do (including our families and ourselves) can be thought of as our “customer.”  Within this wider perspective, we see that real service is based on integrity, care, and sincerity, none of which can be measured with money.  Nor can it be automated, no matter how soft-spoken and attractive the audio-animatronic voice may be.

 

Unfortunately, it seems that when an organization labels some of its professionals as customer-service reps or customer advocates, the rest of the organization assumes they are let off of the “customer care” hook.  Not true.

 

We are ALL in the customer-service business.  There is no other business.  In fact, there is NO business without the customer.

 

Every member of our organization is a “customer-service representative,” no matter what their title or job description may be.  We are all working for the man (or woman), and that person’s name is customer (or client, or guest, or partner, or stockholder, or employee, or team member).

Customers are not dependent on us; we are dependent on them.  But don’t get me wrong!  An attitude of service is not one of servitude.  It is an attitude of goodwill and good-willingness, a willingness to help others progress.

A thorough definition of customer service is full of intangibles, and it is those intangibles that make or break a business.  In today’s competitive marketplace, service is the most important thing a company has to offer.

 

Progress in service leads to progress in sales.

customer-service-speaker-client-logoDean was TERRIFIC!! He did a lot of homework on World Kitchen and started his presentation by impressively naming off all of the brands we carry! Heck, some days I can’t even do that! He made a real connection with my troops and gave us some great philosophy and tips for our busy season on both Customer Service and Phone Sales.

More from Dean Lindsay on Customer Service…

As customers, we want the peace of mind that comes from a customer-service representative listening to our issues and championing our cause.  But let’s not think for a minute that providing solid customer service is something done only for the customer.  We shouldn’t kid ourselves.  Providing solid customer care adds to our peace of mind, too.  Many of our goals are achieved by serving customers.  One of the major reasons we even wear the “Serve others” hat is so that later in the day we can wear the “Serve me” hat.  Our service to others, serves us.  It helps to keep the personal benefits of providing unparalleled service front and center in our minds.

 

Offering customers the promise of peace of mind, offers us peace of mind.  That is why we strive for customer loyalty, so that we KNOW we have a customer base that is solid, jazzed, and growing.  That knowledge sure helps me sleep well at night.  How about you?

 

When we lose sight of the personal motivation involved of quality service, we begin to disregard the concerns of our customers.  Unfortunately for everyone, this makes them unhappy, leads to legitimate complaints, and could easily end in our looking for some other line of work.

 

Customer service is far too often a sticky slow web of surly, under-informed customer-service reps, reading in a monotone from a script.  Add to that the annoying on-hold music, outdated computer programs, and hard-to-navigate Web sites, and you have the perfect Rx for customer disservice, also known as failure. Customers with concerns are left feeling stressed and helpless, and with the belief that companies truly don’t give a hoot about their well-being.

 

Just saying we provide good customer service doesn’t cut it anymore.   Every company, every organization says they provide good customer service, or great customer service, or even stellar customer service.

 

Many companies win customers with special offers, only to lose that new business to their competitor by providing lousy service.  Quality customer service makes the all-important difference when two, ten, or twenty businesses seem to offer the same product or professional service.

TEN Customer Service Truths as I see it:

Customer Service Truth #1

Whoever is affected, positively or negatively, by the work you do is your CUSTOMER.

Customer Service Truth #2

Customers offer the three priceless Rs: Revenue, Referrals and REALITY.

Customer Service Truth #3

ONLY 1 out of 25 Dissatisfied Customers tell the business they are dissatisfied.

Customer Service Truth #4

Over 90% of all Complaining Customers will do business with you again if you resolve their complaint quickly and professionally.

 

Customer Service Truth #5

True Customer Loyalty begins and ends with the RELATIONSHIP. Solid Customer Relationships cannot be purchased; they must be earned.

Customer Service Truth #6

It costs up to five times as much to attract new customers as it does to keep existing customers.

Customer Service Truth #7

Customer complaints are one of the most inexpensive, available, useful and yet ignored forms of customer market data.

Customer Service Truth #8

When you answer the phone, your company’s image is on the line.

Customer Service Truth #9

Courteous service is imperative but courtesy is not a substitute for Competence. Building trust with customers often takes Problem Solving.

Customer Service Truth #10

That customers we wish would just go away, will eventually GO AWAY — along with their business and possible referrals. Be careful what you wish for.
