Poor customer service costs US companies £25 billion ($41 billion) per year.

The study found that 44% of US consumers change suppliers because of poor service. 89% of them changed suppliers at least once or twice over the last year. Moreover, 53% of the clients in such cases try to avoid calling the company (out of a fear of not being able to talk immediately with a real person), so they go to competitors right away without even trying to solve the problem.

The main sources of customer dissatisfaction:


• The company does not value them as customers (53%)
• Uncaring / rude call center staff (42%)
• Being redirected multiple times by multiple employees (32%)
• Employees who can’t give complete and competent answers (29%)
• Being placed on hold for a long time (25%)


Considering that respondents spent about average £240 ($392) before switching to another company, the companies were estimated to lose some £25 billion ($41 billion) yearly in addition to the cost of replacing the lost customers and the impact of negative word of mouth.


Faced with a negative experience, 58% of customers would never go to this company again. Half of them would advise friends and colleagues to avoid it. As another piece of evidence that complaints cannot be hidden in the digital age, one-third of consumers (34%) admit that they are ready to take revenge online by posting negative feedback or complaining on social media. Among the 25-34 year old audience, the number of such responses has soared to almost 60%.

"This study is more proof of how much customers affect the success of a business," Jonathan Gale, NewVoiceMedia CEO, said. "Investments in the quality of customer service and a personalized approach will help companies retain customers and expand their business."

6 secrets to creating a magical atmosphere of Christmas and New Year for the clients

There are no people who are indifferent to the New Year and Christmas holidays. Someone comes in an incredible delight and indescribable ecstasy immediately after Santa's sleigh bells come on the horizon and someone conversely, is irritated by the vanity, tangerines and countless garlands. But those who love and wait for the "spirit of Christmas" are always willing to share the magic of the Christmas story with others.

Baklava is the Turkish service impersonation

The first things that draw the attention of the tourist in a new country are the cultural characteristics, nature, architecture and the temperament of the local residents. The service is equally unique in each country, but often it is not recognized as a separate component, although it generates the most notorious first (and all subsequent) impressions of the country.

The power of positive thinking: how to apply it in the service

The trend in the recent years has been a passion for the spiritual practices, self-improvement, world cognition and adherence to the principles of positive thinking. These trends so densely entered into our lives (and it should be noted, they really work), that it is time to think about how to apply them universally. Of course, each of us spends a lot of time at work, constantly facing people. In the field of servicing the communication with people (customers) is not less important than the communication in everyday life. And here the positive thinking can help greatly for the sake of service.

CUSTOMER SERVICE: SIMPLE EXAMPLES OF INTERESTING SOLUTIONS

The fact that the service is a critical aspect in the work of any company is not a secret to anyone. But this obvious fact was always perceived intuitively and was not represented in the figures. We have corrected this situation by the conducting of interesting market research, which determined the dependence of the average ticket from the client satisfaction with qualitative service.
