At Omega Autocare Reviews, we fully understand the importance of having good customer support no matter what type of business you are in. Most of the time, a customer won’t think twice about abandoning a brand or product for another if only to receive excellent customer service. Unfortunately, a lot of businesses only put focus on their sales support team; but once the sale is done, the customer is left groping in the dark for answers to questions they may have regarding the product or service they just paid for. In all instances, it’s the after sales customer support that truly matters.
When a client needs help troubleshooting the product provided by your company, your customer support representative should be able to walk the client through the steps to make the product work again. If a product was found faulty, or if a customer seems to be in a foul mood, your customer service representative should have the patience to discuss the issue with the client calmly. An exceptional customer support agent should also know how to be sympathetic and empathetic without sounding condescending or patronizing.
With that said, a company, whether a startup or a large enterprise, should invest in their customer support personnel. Omega Autocare client reviews have always pointed out to the exceptional customer support that they received from our team, and that is what sets us apart from other vehicle repair service providers.
Here are a few suggestions for building a good customer support team:
1. Make your team available on all platforms. Technology plays an important role in customer service nowadays. Consumers want to be able to reach your customer support service wherever they are, through different communication channels and devices.
2. Provide service in real time on all channels. It’s common these days to find customers complaining about or praising a certain product or company on social media. Twitter and Facebook are the most common channels used by consumers, and you should have a customer service representative monitoring your accounts on these channels round-the-clock. Nothing turns a customer away more than being made to wait for a response—it makes them feel unimportant.
3. Invest in your people. When employees feel appreciated, they will most likely perform above your expectations. Make sure to give them proper remuneration, plus perks and benefits. It would also help to express your appreciation verbally. You don’t know how far a simple ‘thank you’ could go.
4. Equip them with the right skills and knowledge in best practices. The times they are a-changing and with it comes higher expectations from consumers. Equip your team with all the tools and skills that they need to perform their jobs well. Let them undergo training or attend seminars to keep updated on the latest changes and best practices in customer service to which your business belongs.
