Great information that makes the case that it just makes good sense to provide a great customer service experience. That sounds like common sense, but unfortunately it’s not always so common.

Great posting.
In the world of personality types there is one type who appears as the chatty, friendly type, who's low key and needs lots of step by step guidance. They need superior service and a superb guarantee because they tell all their friends and family the good, the bad and the UGLY about their support experiences. It's good to learn how to I D these callers and it's GOOD for business. They can become your evangelists.

Could you imagine losing over 80% of your customers but not knowing why? The customer experience lies in the hands of your customer facing employees. What they say/do and how they say/do it reflects on your brand as a whole.

As a small startup, marketing agency owner I know the value in good customer relations. We have picked up some large ecommerce clients as previous agencies neglected the management of their marketing campaigns.
