On great support

- 5 MIN READ - 13 Jan 2015

For any company customer service and keeping all users happy is a big priority. Which is probably why a lot has been written about it.

I think we’ve seen close to a hundred blogs dedicated on the topic. So at times the number of available suggestions, tips and case studies can be a bit overwhelming.

Instead of trying to take in everything that has been written on the topic make your own customer support revolve around a few key principles. Ones you always keep in mind and really believe in.

Although yours might be different – here’s what we believe in:

Getting to know the customers point of view

Try and put yourself in the customers place is the key. Always be sure you get the full overview of everything right from the start as nothing can be more irritating than getting hit by the boomerang of inquiries with questions which could have been asked in the beginning.

Time is of the essence

Time is always an important factor when dealing with customers. It is important to let people know they are being listened to and their feedback is being addressed. Sometimes it is necessary to prioritise, but at the same time leave no input unanswered.

Timely answers that can be understood

What goes to answers, sometimes you have to give the solution as quickly as possible before you can go in depth. In these cases providing an easy conclusion without the technical jargon nobody understands is a must. It can always be followed up with a more in-depth answer.

Your sales lab time is scarce

20 Jun 2017

In the series about sales research, I touched upon allocating about 30% of your research time on finding new ideas and possibilities around sales tactics. But how do you actually do it and what do you look for?

An open letter to financial institutions from Yuriy

09 Jun 2017

To the bank, credit card company, and investment firm I work with: I trust you. I really do.

If I didn’t, I wouldn’t put my hard-earned money in your hands. While I’m not a Certified Financial Analyst, I am financially savvy, so I understand that we have a mutually beneficial relationship. From a high-level, banks use the money I deposit to sell loans and invest in other financial instruments. Credit card companies make money on interest charges, other fees, and transaction fees from merchants. The brokerage firm makes money through fees on my account. On the other hand, all I expect is that you are honest about your services, provide returns, and keep my money safe.

Centralizing SMS operations and why you should consider it

07 Jun 2017

Centralization /(sɛntrəlʌɪˈzeɪʃ(ə)n/ noun - the action or process of bringing activities together in one place.

In the era of globalization and communication through technology, businesses no longer have borders and it's very common for companies to offer services from Germany to Zimbabwe, in multiple markets, and different continents. However, offering services in multiple countries leads to cooperating with a longer, more complicated list of partners.
