The Secret to Success is Good Customer Service Featuring Patricia Fripp
- Money should not be your main career goal. You will achieve more success if you instead focus on becoming someone that people want to do business with. In other words, focus on building your soft skills and delivering great customer service. The money will follow.
- A good customer experience has the potential to be your most powerful marketing tool. The better service you deliver, the more likely your customers are to recommend you to others.
- Try to make each and every one of your customers feel like they’re the most important person in the room.
- Recognize the importance of publicity; become a shameless self-promoter. Being good at what you do is one thing, but the world has to know. It’s not so much what you say, but to whom you say it.
- Customer service and the customer experience is all about how you make the customer feel. The goal should be for them to leave feeling better than they did when they arrived.
- Figure out the one, simple question you can ask your customers to gauge whether you achieved your goal. It could be something like, “was your problem resolved?” or “would you recommend us?”
- Your business is only as good as your worst employee. Make sure everyone is in alignment with your company’s culture and customer experience mission.
- When delivering a message to your staff, speak as an audience advocate. Be specific—specificity build credibility.
“Your business is only as good as your worst employee.”
