4 Key Customer Needs to Tackle for Better Phone Support
- Attention: Customers need to feel they are the center of your attention. They want to know that you recognize their value and expect you to act accordingly. Make sure not to have any background noises or distractions while you are taking calls. Take time to listen and repeat what their concerns are to show you are paying attention.
- Empathy: Customers need to feel that you understand and appreciate their circumstances and feelings without criticism or judgement. Let them know you are listening, apologize if there is a problem, and tell them how you are going to resolve the issue they are calling about.
- Acceptance: Embrace who the customer is and accept them for who they are. Make the emotional connection. When you have empathy, acceptance is the next step.
- Appreciation: Make it personal. Ask yourself, “What will show this person I appreciate their time, attention, and consideration?” Always thank the customer for calling and thank them for being a customer.
