The importance of B2B customer service
Being well-known isn't the same thing as having a stellar reputation. For example, most people have heard of Basil Fawlty and most people wouldn't want to stay in his hotel. Its one thing watching him ruin holiday-makers good fun, it's another to experience it for yourself.
Similarly, well-known providers don't always offer the best customer service. Have you ever experienced bad or disappointing customer service? Whether it's a Basil Fawlty type who has never heard that the customer is always right, a robotic call center agent, or an actual robot call center agent, we have all experienced it at some level.
It doesn't leave a good impression. At best, bad customer service can sour your relationship with a service provider. At worse, it leads you to warn others about the terrible service you've received.
Exemplary B2B customer service
On the flip side, have you experienced amazing customer service that would earn a five-star review, and have you recommend it to everyone you know? People often remember great customer service because it is such a rarity and stands out in the crowd of mediocre service we receive.
That shouldn't be the case for something that is such a critical part of the business. Customers are the lynchpin to success they are brand ambassadors, investors, walking advertisements in some cases, loyal supporters, reputation boosters, and much more and they should be rewarded for this.
The customer has more choices these days. Thanks to the internet and increasingly available high-speed broadband, people have better research tools and are much more informed when it comes to the important decision of where to spend my money.
With more businesses online and better access to online shopping, there are better value deals for the customer. Brilliant customer service creates engagement, trust, and loyalty in this market of infinite choice.
