The video introduces the concept of the six levels of service. It starts with the basic level, which represents the bare minimum. The next level is industry average, where everything is done according to the service level agreement. The desired level is achieved when the service is delivered in the way the customers prefer. Surprising level is higher than desired and involves serving someone in an unexpected way that they like. The highest level is astonishing, extraordinary, and incredible, which is referred to as 'on b'. On the other hand, below the basic level are the levels of terrible, unacceptable, horrible, and criminal, which means breaking a promise. The video emphasizes the importance of delivering on the promise of integrated and complete service to avoid falling below the basic level.

When it comes to providing excellent customer support, there are six levels of service that every business should strive to achieve. These levels range from basic, which is the bare minimum, to astonishing, which exceeds customer expectations. Let's explore these levels in more detail.
The basic level of service refers to the bare minimum that is expected from a business. It is the least desirable level and is characterized by a lack of effort and personalization. Customers may feel unimportant and unsatisfied when receiving basic service.
The industry average level of service refers to meeting the minimum standards set by the industry. It involves ticking the boxes and ensuring that all service level agreements and specifications are met. While this level is better than basic, it still lacks personalization and may leave customers feeling indifferent.
A step up from industry average, the desired level of service involves serving customers in a way that aligns with their preferences and expectations. It requires going above and beyond to provide a positive experience. Customers at this level feel valued and appreciated.
Surprising service goes beyond what customers hope for. It involves providing unexpected but appreciated gestures that make customers feel special. This level of service can be likened to receiving a pleasant surprise or a little gift.
Astonishing service is exceptional and remarkable. It exceeds customer expectations in every aspect. This level of service leaves customers in awe and can make a lasting impression. It is characterized by going above and beyond what is considered normal or average.
At the bottom of the service levels is the criminal level, which represents breaking promises made to customers. This level is characterized by unacceptable service and can lead to a loss of trust and loyalty. It is crucial for businesses to avoid this level at all costs.
Understanding the different levels of service is essential for improving customer support. By striving to provide desired, surprising, or even astonishing service, businesses can create positive and memorable experiences for their customers. This, in turn, can lead to increased customer satisfaction, loyalty, and word-of-mouth recommendations.
By avoiding the basic and criminal levels of service, businesses can ensure that their customers feel valued, appreciated, and well taken care of. Investing in customer support training and consistently striving to improve the service provided can make a significant impact on overall customer satisfaction.
To improve marketing, speak to customers in a friendly and relatable tone, use casual subject lines, and provide excellent support and easy navigation on your website.+

First call resolution (FCR) is a critical customer service metric that measures a company's ability to resolve issues in the initial interaction. A high FCR rate improves customer satisfaction and retention. The industry standard for a good FCR rate is between 70-75%. Improving FCR results in increased customer satisfaction, efficiency, and cost savings for businesses. Challenges in achieving FCR include defining and measuring it correctly, inefficient internal processes, and knowledge gaps among agents. Factors that affect FCR include call routing systems and the complexity of products or services. Best practices for improving FCR include providing agents with easy access to customer data and knowledge base articles, enabling decision-making without escalation, and efficient cross-training.
Good customer service is crucial for business success. It retains customers, boosts sales, and strengthens brand image. Invest in your customer service team, provide them with the right communication tools, and reward their efforts. They can also act as social media managers to engage with customers effectively.
