How Are People Evaluating Your Level Of Service?

As an author, you are now in the customer service business. You sell a product -- a book. You market a brand: you. You may also sell other products or a service, such as consulting, speaking, etc. So what will you do to ensure top customer service?

1.      Communicate clearly and often.

2.      Answer questions accurately, directly, and in a timely manner.

3.      Come across as caring, interesting.

4.      Spend most of your time listening, not always talking. Learn what they want, like, need and do.

5.      Address a concern or problem immediately. If the solution involves following up with other vendors, such as UPS, do so and then follow-up with the customer to tell them what you did, what you will do, and to confirm they feel helped and satisfied.

6.      Keep a good database on your clients and stay in touch with them at least every six months, even if you don’t have something new to sell them.

7.      Always say thank you, express gratitude, and let them know you value their support.

8.      Respect the confidentiality of what people share with you.

9.      Keep tabs on your competition and seek to emulate those who succeed in other industries.

10.  Think like a customer – ask yourself what they need or want and give it to them.

11.  Find a way to go the extra mile – reward your patrons.
