EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE DOESN`T HAVE TO COST MONEY

EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE DOESN`T HAVE TO COST MONEY

I know it has been far too long since I have blogged on here and I`m hoping to remedy that going forward.

In the interim, here is a story for you – I often talk about how small actions can go very far in the world of customer service and often ones with no cost have more impact than ones a company could simply throw money at.

The example here is an organic food store I`ve been to multiple times. I mentioned to the owner in passing that I wish he had Spinach, and the first time (a few days ago in fact) he had Spinach in the store when I arrived, he rushed over and grabbed it and said, “here you go friend“

I should mention that we spoke about the fact that I wish he were carrying Spinach once, over 12 months before this store visit. Do you think I was impressed? You bet. Will I be back again and again? You Bet.

Cost to him? Absolutely nothing. In fact, on top of impressing me, he has also increased his sales to me and my potential for word of mouth for his business. Simply by demonstrating that he was listening when I said I wish he had Spinach.

The question becomes – in what way are you giving your customers their Spinach?

Until next time, here`s to your greater success,
