Of course you would!

Research shows that 86 percent of today’s consumers are willing to pay more money for a better customer service experience—and in some cases, a lot more! But surely these kinds of elite customer service techniques are guarded like government secrets and cost a minor fortune to learn.

Not when you enroll in this exciting one-day workshop, Customer Service Through the Customer’s Eyes. It’s an insightful training event that lays out a step-by-step program for delivering the kind of customer service today’s consumer demands. Attend and you’ll learn the core principles and innovative strategies that will help you set the standard of customer service excellence in your industry. Whether you’re brick-and-mortar … online only … or a mixture of both, you’ll go back to the office the next day with a game plan for eliminating unsatisfactory customer service at your company.

It’s never been easier to lose a customer forever … or to make them your brand champion instead!

The Web gives your customers hundreds, if not thousands, of options to make their purchases, and if you don’t engage them at every step, you could lose them forever. However, you can stand above all those other choices and build lifelong loyalty—if you know the secrets to turning your customer base into your strongest and most vocal advocates.

The right people may be in place; they just need the right skills. Enroll today and learn how to turn the customer service support—that both you and your team provide—into your organization’s greatest asset. From proven listening techniques to the latest social media tips, you’ll boost all the most important aspects of your company’s customer contact through real-world instruction and interactive exercises led by your trainer, a customer service expert. Don’t hesitate and take the chance of losing one more customer!
