How to Deliver a Customer Service Experience That Disrupts the Competition and Creates Fierce Loyalty
Shep Hyken shares Six Convenience Principles from his latest book, The Convenience Revolution that will either disrupt the market or be disrupted. You don’t have to compete with all six convenience principles but if you can’t find one or two areas where your organization can raise its game, prepare to be disrupted!
- 6 Convenience Principles
- Reduce Friction – Make doing business with you as easy as possible.
- Self-service – Let your customers control the transaction/interaction.
- Technology – Create new processes, tools and ways of interacting that make life easier for customers.
- Subscription – Establish automated, scheduled delivery of products and services that people use on a regular basis.
- Delivery – Bring the product to the customer, rather than making the customer go to the product.
- Access – Be available to your customers by location and/or hours of operation.
- “Self-service needs to have human fallback, for when self-service doesn’t work.” – Shep Hyken
- “It’s expected that your product will do what it’s expected to do. Add a level of convenience and you take the entire experience to a higher level.” – Shep Hyken
- “You don’t have to practice all six principals, just the one that’s going to separate you from your competition.” – Shep Hyken
