How to Take Your Service from Run-of-the-Mill to Remarkable

Value-added has been the service solution for many service-minded organizations—take what customers expect and add a little more.

But in the past few years, value-added extras have gotten a lot more expensive. Tough economic times call for a new approach: value-unique service. It is not enough to wow your customers; winning service providers awe their customers.

This webcast explores creating experiences that cause your customers to swoon, smile, and sing your praises! This process will be your spark plug for bringing energy and igniting your customers’ experiences. And, it can turn bored, overworked employees into ones who are fired-up and ready-to-enchant!

It is built around 9½ principles—think of them as lenses crafted to reveal special strategies and techniques you can use to become the subject of glowing remarks via word of mouth and word of mouse.      

What You Will Learn

In this webcast, you’ll learn:
  • Reasons innovative service is such a critical factor for customer retention and advocacy
  • How today’s overstimulated, highly entertained consumer expects an emotional connection, not just an adequate but plain vanilla response to their needs and expectations
  • 5 strategies that can provide a new, innovative lens through which to view and improve your customers’ experiences
  • The leadership components required for a sustainable innovative service culture. 

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
