- When improving customer service focus on the few major items that will make a significant difference. 20 percent of your customer service impacts 80 percent of our customers. Focus on the significant few to make significant changes.
- Answer all customer emails. At least acknowledge their emails with a “Thank you.” It takes little time for you but it makes a big difference to the customer.
- Review your major customer service processes every two years. What was effective two years ago is not as effective now. Ask What is best for the customer and Does the process flow make sense.
