A Secret of Marketing: Customer Experience Managment

A secret of marketing strengthening your other number one asset??Ÿ?¦Ÿ?your customers through Customer Experience Management (CEM).

“Bad Service is death for a Company. Not dramatically, but more like a thousand small knife cuts.”
-Dan Hill, Body of Truth

To illustrate this fact consider the following.
“Who’s Fault is it When Your Customers Use the Word “Good”? When Referring to Your Service”?

??Ÿ?¦?You don??Ÿ?¦Ÿ??t know me. I??Ÿ?¦Ÿ??m your customer. I??Ÿ?¦Ÿ??m the customer who says ??Ÿ?¦?Good??Ÿ?¦? when you ask me how everything was. I wanted to inform you??Ÿ?¦?? because it has become obvious by your poor service that you think ??Ÿ?¦?Good??Ÿ?¦? is a good thing. It??Ÿ?¦Ÿ??s not!
You see, when I say ??Ÿ?¦?Good??Ÿ?¦? I am being nice??Ÿ?¦?? what it really means is that I will tell my circle of influence, 52 people on average, what crappy service I really received and that I would never buy from you again.
I am willing to trade my hard earned money for your products/services but only if you respect my time and give me some ??Ÿ?¦?real value??Ÿ?¦? for it. I am really a nice customer, but you have taken advantage of me, I will not take it anymore.
I can get similar products/services anywhere??Ÿ?¦?? but what I really want is a relationship. I want someone who will cater to me, someone who will remember me when I come in, someone who will make it worth my while to come in again and again and again.
But, I can see, by the way you treat me you don??Ÿ?¦Ÿ??t really want my money or my friend??Ÿ?¦Ÿ??s money either.??Ÿ?¦?

Your customer

P.S. I??Ÿ?¦Ÿ??m off to see your competitor??Ÿ?¦?? And, Oh, ??Ÿ?¦?Good??Ÿ?¦? is the most dangerous word you could hear from me. If you ever hear it again please start asking probing questions to find out the truth??Ÿ?¦?? which I am willing to tell you??Ÿ?¦?? but only after you show me that you really care about me, my money and my friends.

If you really care about your business??Ÿ?¦Ÿ?? success and want to avoid this from every happening to you again… immediately begin an employee training and a customer service training!

Your success depends on three things.
1. Strengthening your #1 asset??Ÿ?¦Ÿ?your employees.
2. Strengthening your other #1asset??Ÿ?¦Ÿ?your customers.
3. Rewarding your customers for buying from you.

How do you strengthen your assets? How do you reward your customers from buying from you? And why is this a valid strategy?

??Ÿ?¦?The true value of the brand for the consumer lies not only in the product??Ÿ?¦Ÿ??s performance, but in the product??Ÿ?¦Ÿ??s support and service.??Ÿ?¦?
