Customer Service Tips

  • The customer is always right. Never argue with a customer. Diffuse the situation.
    (no matter how badly you want to)
  • If you promise to do something in a certain time frame, you must do it.
  • If you promise something to a client – before the deadline and deliver more than they expect.
  • If the customer asks you a question you’re unable to answer, tell the truth and offer to find the information. Locate the information you need and respond within 24 hours.
  • If you lose an order to another company, don’t complain or slander the other company. If you feel it’s appropriate, you may ask the client what the deciding factor was, for them to place their order with the other company. This will help you review your operation and how you can change and/or improve. Maintain a positive attitude and thank the client for their time and consideration. Express you will look forward to doing business with them in the future.
  • If there’s a problem with an order, correct it immediately.
  • If any item in a basket design must be substituted, make the customer aware before the order is processed. Give the customer several other optional items for the substitution. Let them choose what item should be sent as the replacement item. (List in your Brochure: Your company name reserves the right to substitute products of equal or additional value)
  • Always be friendly, polite, professional and positive.
