The way you treat your customers will define your company. The best advertising in the world can’t compensate for a lack in customer service. The best way to provide an effective customer service, to maintain a good relationship with them and to make sure that they stay loyal to your company, is to treat them with respect. But how can you do that?
Make things easy for your customer: Eliminate the need for the customer to jump through hoops to receive proper attention and to get assistance with their queries. You need to make it simple for them to speak with the proper party depending on their concern. So it’s important that your system is well structured and doesn't waste the customer's time.
Respond quickly: Swift responses and quick action informs the customer that you value their point of view and their time, which is one of the best ways of showing respect.
Own up to your mistakes: By admitting the mistake and letting customers know about it instantly, you're respecting their time and their investment. This will leave the customer with a good feeling about their experience and won’t turn them away from doing business with you in the future.
Keep your promises: Not to fulfil your promises is one of the worst things you could do when it comes to customer service. If you've given a customer a timeframe to resolve a problem, make sure to fix it within that period. If it's not possible, contact them personally and let them know.
Treat them the way you'd like to be treated: Customer service workers are customers themselves, so think of how you would like to be treated by a company. If you've ever felt disrespected, try to think about why and make sure that you avoid making the same mistake with your own customers.
No matter how great your product is or how talented your staff is, one of the things that customers are most likely to remember is the direct interaction they have with your company.
