Customers Are Revolting Customers Are Revolting Presentation Transcript

  • Customers are Revolting!
    Debra Templar: Check ups, Tune Ups & Makeovers....It’s in the bag!
  • Enough is enough!!!Why WeGiveBADService
  • We don’t understand the purpose of being in business
    We don’t understand customers
    We don’t understand what business we’re in
    You aren’t in the coffee business serving people.
    You’re in the people business
    serving coffee.
    Howard Schultz, Starbucks
  • We understand what business we are in but we don’t like doing it
    We haven’t worked out our Policies, Procedures and Promises
    We haven’t defined our service promise
    We don’t even know what we do best so we wobble all over the market place
    We can’t put our finger on our Points of Difference
    We don’t know what we want our customers to say after we’ve served them
  • How to
  • Start with the Right People
    • They have to love people
    • They must be active
    • They must be willing to serve
    • They must be outgoing
    • They must have non-discriminatory attitudes about other people
  • Develop a cheerful Returns Policy
    Live by your Service Promise … don’t die by it
    Excellence. Phooey!
    No dissin’ your own brands
  • You can’t teach someone to smile,
    You can’t teach someone to want to serve,
    You can’t teach someone personality.
  • What you can do, however,
    is hire people who have those qualities,
    then teach them about your products and teach them your culture.
  • If your company’s mission statement was “to climb a tree”, what would you rather do?
  • Train
    horse to climb the tree?
  • Or
  • Inspires Stories
    Uses Outside-the-Box-Thinking
    Is a Choice
    Starts with a Clear Vision
    Requires that Everyone Catch the Vision
    Surprises People

    Brings Customers Back
    Comes from the Heart
  • Complaining
  • Those customers are cunning. They try to trick us into giving them things they haven’t paid for.
    That customer is an idiot.
    There are no limits to what people will do.
    Can’t they see I’m busy?
    If they’d just read the instructions before calling to complain.
    Can’t they ever say something positive?
    All they do is complain – and about such minor things
  • What is a Complaint?
  • A complaint is a statement about expectations that haven’t been met.
    It is also, and perhaps more importantly, an opportunity for a business to satisfy a dissatisfied customer by fixing a service or product breakdown.
    In this way, a complaint is a giftcustomers give to a business.
    The business will benefit from opening this
    package carefully and seeing
    what is inside.
  • Complaining Customers are still Customers...
  • Customers who take time to complainstill have some confidence in the business.
    In most cases, it is less of a hassle just to take their business to the competition, so those who do complain are showing some degree of loyalty.
  • Moments
  • Identify every contact between the customer and the employee, and treat that contact as …
    “A Moment of Truth”
    Your people will only treat your customers as well as they are being treated; thus to have satisfied customers, they need to be served by passionate people.
  • Questions
    to Ask:
  • How does your business view customer complaints? How do you talk about complaining customers?
    Do staff members see complaints as an opportunity to satisfy dissatisfied customers?
    Do staff members tend to blame policies when they can’t meet customer needs?
    What specific lessons have you learned from your complaining customers?
    What specific strategies does your business have in place to encourage and then learn from
  • Customers always remember your bad attitudes,
    your broken promises and
    how you handle
  • Are your customers revolting?
    Have they had enough?
  • One of Australia’s leading retailing experts, Debra Templar just hates bad customer service and stupid business practices. So… she’s on a mission to change them – one slideshow, presentation, book, or training session at a time:
    "I don't just want to improve how we do business for the customer’s sake but also that we, as business owners, sell more stuff, make lots more profit, and love our businesses back to life!“
