A Good Week For Customer Service

Customer service is underapreciated in many companies. So it’s great that we are celebrating Customer Service Week. In honor of the occasion, I’ve collected some of my thoughts (and posts) about customer service:

The bottom line: Customer service deserves more than a week of focus.

  1. Bruce, thank you for highlighting Customer Service Week (I was unaware of this). I enjoy reading your blog and this post really got me thinking about the difference between “customer service” and “customer experience”. I wrote a couple of posts today on my blog addressing how a customer service strategy can really differentiate a local retailer from a national retailer.

    Thank you Bruce for highlighting how important the customer experience, and customer service, is for our businesses.

  2. Like Darren, I’d never heard of Customer Service Week. However, this is a great article. Very thorough, especially clear communications, which I feel are most important with customer service. Great post.
