  • The Cost/Benefit of Getting Complaints Right • Every customer you keep represents at least 3 that you don’t have to attract. • The cost of acquiring a new customer usually runs from 2-4x the annual cost of keeping an existing one. • It is estimated that defecting customers will tell 8-10 people about their negative experience. One in 5 will tell 20 people (multiply for Social Media and the internet). • Conversely, a referral from a loyal customer has a 92% retention rate versus 68% for a customer acquired from advertising.

  • Comments Takeaways • 40% of the people who complain also comment via social media • Focus on the quality of experience you provide. • Like complaints, the biggest reason for making a social media comment is “service quality”. • Accept that you may not have visibility of most of the comments made about your organisation - 48% of comments are made on Facebook. • Your best option is to create a Facebook presence that is interesting for customers such that you are able to observe their Facebook comments. • That is, your Facebook presence should NOT just be a place to leave customer feedback. • Respond to comments – just over a 1/3 of people who comment are “surprised” that they got a response and almost half are satisfied with that response.

  • Complaints Takeaways • Service quality and treatment customers (humanics) are the biggest reasons for complaints. • It is NOT price, or product quality. • You can affect about 40% of people who complain with the way you handle complaints. • Make a distinction between complaint handling and outcome. • Focus on complaint handling over complaint outcomes – it has a bigger upside if you get it right and a bigger downside if you get it wrong. • Unfortunately, organizations are currently too focused on outcomes rather than handling - the “net satisfaction score” of complaints handling is always worse than that of complaints outcomes. • People who complain become “sensitive” to future issues regardless of the complaint outcome or how it was handled – so handling complaints appropriately becomes even more important.
