Customers are like romantic partners. Their needs are always changing and among them are a range of different tastes, expectations and temperaments. Failing to satisfy just one of those needs could leave you a lasting and damaging reputation.
And worst of all, what if you don’t have a clue what you did wrong? How are you going to make sure it won’t happen again if you don’t even know the cause of their dissatisfaction? Think about it.
According to Ruby Newell-Legner in Understanding Customers, it takes 12 positive experiences to make up for one unresolved negative experience. That’s a lot of making up to do.
As with any relationship, communication between clients and businesses is key. One of the biggest killers of cheeriness originates in a lack of communication which leads to distrust, and sometimes even betrayal.
Reaching out to customers and hearing their honest feedback is a difficult task at the best of times. Some software companies have realized this and developed advanced customer experience solutions which will help you keep a smile on your customers’ face.
