  • $289 is the average value of every lost business relationship in the U.S. per year
  • What defines bad customer service? Poor attention, inexperienced representative, lack of caring, not listening
  • When you were unhappy did you go back? If you are like almost everyone else, the answer is no. Sometimes you don’t have a choice in who you are dealing with (electric company) so you have to go back. But ours is a choice industry. 98% of unhappy clients will not bother to explain why, they will just go elsewhere
