By Nikolaos Zormpas
There are a lot of things you need to do right to keep your customers happy. This is your biggest test.
Keeping Your Customers Happy
No one likes complaints, especially from customers. When customers complain, that usually means extra work for your employees who then have to find solutions for them. And when those complaints escalate, it’s considered a failure and a major headache for management in the company to deal with.
What if we look at these complaints differently by seeing them as opportunities instead of problems?
- When customers attempt to raise an issue with your business, they’re giving you a chance to make it up to them instead of just taking their business elsewhere.
- It’s also a chance for your company to learn what areas in your business may be problematic and need fixing.
You should still aim to avoid escalations; nevertheless, your attitude toward them should make all the difference.
When customers complain to you, it’s best to listen and take it seriously, and when grievances escalate, the response from the business is even more crucial.
Escalations mean that your first line of interaction was not enough, and most likely, the customer will be unhappy at this stage. How you deal with these escalations could determine whether a customer stays with your company.
