There are many ways to improve customer service. One way is by making sure that the employees are friendly and knowledgeable about your products or services. Another way is by ensuring you have a website that provides information on how to contact you, what your hours are, etc. A third way would be to offer incentives for reviews, such as free product samples or discounts off of future purchases if the review was favorable. The possibilities are endless!
Make sure employees are friendly and knowledgeable about your products or services
This is helpful for the customers because then they know that they can get good information on what they want to buy from you, and also you’re giving them great reasons to keep coming back. Employees might enjoy their job more if it’s clear that their managers actually care about whether or not they perform well in whatever task needs doing. Also, be willing to train people who need it. If you have the resources to do so, then why not? It’s likely that your employees are more open to learning something new.
Ensure you have a website that provides information on how to contact you, what your hours are, etc.
This is very helpful for the customers because they know where they can go online to find important information about your business – what products you sell, what forms of payment are accepted, do you offer gift wrapping or ship internationally or only domestically, etc. This makes it easier because if there isn’t someone nearby who can help them out with their problem or question but they’re able to find answers online at least give them peace of mind knowing that this option exists.
This is always very motivating for both parties, as well as encouraging. If the customer knows that there is an incentive on their side of things all they have to do is leave a positive review and then they’re rewarded with whatever you deemed worthy of giving away (it could be an actual product or money off of future purchases). This is good for the customer because they’re more likely to want to leave a positive review if there’s some sort of benefit to doing so. It’ll also motivate them to be more vocal about their experience with your company, which is always better for business in general. The incentive on your end again encourages both parties; you get rewarded for having a quality product/service and the customer gets something out of it too.
The possibilities are endless!
Customers like to feel like they’re important, and also that you’re listening. It’s good customer service to treat everyone the same way, but if one person is complaining more than others or about something specific it might be helpful to listen to their problems more intensely. This makes them feel like their voice was actually heard instead of just flat-out ignored, which can make an impact on how they feel about your business. Also, people love options so always have a plan B ready in case something goes wrong. There’s nothing worse than feeling helpless when you know someone could do something about the situation but they aren’t willing to help you so you might as well deal with it yourself.
Remember: Make sure you are friendly, knowledgeable about your products or services, have a website that provides information on how to contact you for questions/concerns, offer incentives in exchange for reviews, and make sure to be willing to train people who need it. Customers like options so always have a plan B ready in case something goes wrong.
