(How to Win Customers, Reduce Lost Sales And Build Company Wide Customer Obsession)

 

A three-month study of over 500 businesses and came to the sad conclusion that service is lacking in most businesses.Only 3% of the businesses they visited left them “very satisfied.” The remaining 97% failed mostly on the BASICS:

Lack of courtesy* Skimpy product knowledge * Not listening * No respect * Negative attitudes

 

FACT: 68% of customers leave companies due to perceived indifference.

FACT: 98% of unhappy customers never report a problem to the owner or manager, but 91% of them will never buy again from a business that has offended them.

FACT: Poor customer service is the number one consumer complaint.

FACT: Customers can now instantly blast a bad service experience to everyone in the community through Social Media like Twitter, Facebook or YouTube.

  

“A Passion for Service" Topics Covered:

Get ready for turbulent change * How to stay motivated * Who really signs your paycheck * Make a great first impression * Build and maintain a positive attitude * Communicate respect to every customer * Remembering and using customer names * Personalize your service * How to listen effectively * Turning your irate customers into your best customers * How to handle the ten most difficult customers * Overcome stress * Eliminate the word "just" -- take pride in your job!
