Today on Forbes.com, founder and general manager Austin Allison shared his view on how customer service plays an equally significant role as marketing in developing a great brand reputation.
Austin highlights that extraordinary customer service experience requires strategic development, careful creation and interaction with customers to vet, test and improve the process. He advises businesses to:
1. Focus on the value being delivered: Make it a point to offer an easily accessible product or service information.
2. Provide multiple support channels: Consider channels like an online chat or a wiki service to navigate customer inquiries in real-time.
3. Upgrade the customer experience: Visualize the customer experience, anticipate their questions, and remember the lifetime value of a happy customer.
