TOP CUSTOMER SERVICE AND BUSINESS ARTICLES

Each week I read a number of customer service articles from various online resources. Here are my top five picks from last week. I have added my comment about each article and would like to hear what you think too.

Customer Service: The Face of New Marketing by Infinit Contact

Why Smart Companies Are Making Customer Experience a C-Suite Job by Len Devanna

My Comment: The CXO (Chief Experience Officer) is a title that has been growing in popularity over the last few years. I believe that every organization needs a CXO – Even small ones. While a small company may not have the official place or title for a CXO, someone in the company needs to be assigned the same responsibilities.
