Is Customer Service All That Important?
We always discuss the need for great customer service in order for your business to thrive, but does it really matter? Is customer service that important?
All signs point to a big, fat yes.
Research has proven that not only does positive customer service help ensure return consumers, but a negative interaction can be detrimental to future business. 91% of unhappy customers who are non-complainers simply leave (ThinkJar) and interestingly, 55% of consumers are willing to pay more for a ‘guaranteed’ good experience. These are powerful statistics, but what exactly creates a positive, or negative, customer experience?
Customer experiences are defined and molded by each touch point with your company. Did the customer visit your website? Speak to a representative? Interact with your brand in some way? All of these connections should be indisputably positive; allowing your consumer to leave the experience feeling happy and satisfied.
