Customer service is a very important tool for business growth. If you are serving your customers well, you can hope to grow much more because they will continue to give their business to you as well as refer you to other people. However I have noticed in my interaction with our customers as well as other service providers that empathy towards the customer is also a very vital asset we must have.
You should try your best to offer excellent customer service to your clients. However you should lay enough focus on understanding that they may be tensed when they are needing your help. You first need to reassure them that you are listening to their grievances with utmost attention and will do everything possible (within the limits of practicality) to help solve their issues. Then apply 100% efforts to help them – and then some more.
A delighted customer is the biggest asset a business can have and you should spare no effort to acquire as many delighted customers as you can. A significant portion of the marketing budget can be set aside for it as this exercise can result in very high ROI.
