What makes an amazing customer service?
While a sale is a wonderful end-result of this, it is not what fully defines good customer service. It is your ability to make the prospects’ whole experience with you positive and, hopefully, so pleasantly memorable that they will come back for more. In other words, it’s in how you guide them through the stages of the ‘buyer’s journey’.
“The buyer’s journey is the process buyers go through to become aware of, evaluate, and purchase a new product or service.” (Hubspot)
A successful customer service campaign not only results in a consumer buying a product or service. As said, it can create loyal patrons who will most likely do business with you again.
However, if you have been doing sales or cold calls long enough, you know it is not as easy as simply talking to a prospect and offering what you have — that is the reality. The bigger reality is it requires excellent customer service skills.
