How You Will Benefit
Customer service over the phone can be tricky as clients often have low expectations for service quality. Depending on your phone system, customers may have to deal with phone menus, dropped calls, unending waiting music or multiple representative transfers before they get to you. Therefore callers may be a bit testy, and it is your job to turn their experience around and meet their needs.
Call representatives are integral to earning revenue for a company. In fact, 94 % of most marketing budgets is spent on persuading a customer to call. For the call representative, the stakes are high when the client can hang up on a whim. Only 12 percent of consumers will stay on the line if they hear silence and 34 percent will hang up and not call back.
Furthermore, 7 in 10 Americans are willing to spend more with companies they believe provide excellent customer service. Seventy-eight percent of happy customers attribute their satisfaction to competent service reps.
