Can you think of any company doing excellent customer service?

According to multiple surveys usually these companies are placed at the top:

  • Amazon
  • USAA
  • Marriott
  • Hilton
  • UPS
  • Google
  • Trader Joe’s
  • Samsung

So what makes them stand out from other companies?

People enjoy dealing with these companies the most thanks to:

  • 24/7 Customer Service – people want to have a possibility to contact company at any moment. Can you imagine how anxious you are having a problem or query for the company with limited customer support?
  • Good Reputation – negative opinions about some companies continue to haunt them.
  • Simple, User-friendly Website – if you are on the web, it´s important for your customers to easily find what they´re looking for How would you feel, if you had to make dozens of clicks before you find WYW?
  • Emphasizing Social Responsibility – responsibility for the impact on the environment, consumers, employees… Would you rather support a company, that is donating part of it´s profits to charitable causes or not?
  • Making Customers Feel Important and Appreciated – treating customers as individuals, generating good feelings and thanking them is the key to success Having the nasty person on the other side of the phone is not really a delightful experience.
  • Having more Options to Contact Support Staff – personally, phone, email, live chat are approprite solutions – the more the better
  • Hiring Professional Staff – patient, polite, persuasive staff with deep knowledge of how company´s products works is a crucial part of doing great business.
