Customer care is an important and worldwide standard these days. Those businesses clearly aren’t wrong. It’s way harder to gain new clients than finding a solution for problems of existing customers. But why?
Well, with the attraction of new customers, you aren’t even sure they’re going to like and finally purchase your products or services. This is something which your existing clients already did. Gaining a new client is most of the times a process of an investment made by the organisation while you‘ve already made your investment in the existing clients. If you’re able to fix their problems, the existing clients could even become more loyal to your brand. You can never rule out customer complaints or difficulties but it’s the way you take care of them makes or breaks your brand image.
Even in digital times, never underestimate the power of the Word of Mouth because if you do, it could easily fire back even harder in the future. That’s why dealing well with your complaints is becoming a standard and something the clients expect a business to do. An existing client will never forget the time you did everything in your powers to fix his problem. A happy client will even spread the word, that you did an effort to solve his issue, between his acquaintances who are likely to believe him. That’s how you can reverse something negative into something positive and trigger an unsatisfied client to become a brand advocate. Good businesses almost always have an excellent complaints department.
Digital Customer Care?
Nowadays businesses are aware of the fact that dealing with complaints is vital. Even so important that some organisations are even digitizing the process. It’s very important that customers easily find where they need to be to file a complaint. Companies should even encourage clients to file complaints in order to come to know were the issues are hidden before a larger audiences experiences them. If they deal with the complaints well and fast, they’re able to solve other future issues even before they come to surface.
