SELLING HAPPINESS

HOW TO CREATE CUSTOMER EXPERIENCES THAT INSPIRE LOYALTY AND DRIVE REFERRALS.

Deliver more than expected. Go above and beyond. Exceed expectations. These are theories that companies have been led to believe in order to win customers. The problem is no one knows what they mean. How much is “more” and how far is “beyond”? How can you exceed something when you don’t know where the finish line is?

We know from studies of human behaviour that if you give more than is expected then more becomes expected. For companies, this leads to increased transaction costs, service burnout, and eventually customer disappointment. And disappointed customers don’t stick around.

The solution? Establish an understanding between you and your customers as to what they can expect. Then deliver as promised, providing an experience built on ease and convenience. That’s what creates a relationship of trust that keeps customers coming back.

In this award winning presentation, Marc dispels some of the biggest customer loyalty myths while showing you what really makes customers happy. He demonstrates the fundamental steps for delivering relevant and memorable experiences that inspire customer loyalty.

Delivered with Marc’s high energy style and humour, this presentation is customized for your industry while drawing upon everyday experiences such as buying a morning coffee, taking Uber, and going on a family vacation.

This presentation is essential for any industry that has paying customers, competition, and is dependent on repeat business.

THE RIGHT KIND OF NICE

HOW TO USE CUSTOMER SERVICE TO SOLVE PROBLEMS AND BUILD RELATIONSHIPS.

It has been said that the true test of a relationship is when things go wrong. The same holds true for companies. The time and effort they invest in building relationships with their customers means nothing if they are not attentive when problems arise.

And while this concept might seem obvious, the fact is that customer satisfaction across most industries has dropped to all-time lows. From inadequate resources to lack of interest, companies are failing at helping customers who are having negative experiences.

Studies have shown that customers who receive prompt and attentive care are 60 percent more likely to purchase from that company again, even if the outcome was not what they had originally hoped for. The truth is that customers want to feel valued and appreciated throughout the entire transactional journey. But in problem situations, want to see actions that reflect that.

In this presentation, Marc will demonstrate the impact customer service has on loyalty and its influence in creating experiences. He will introduce new ideas and innovative processes that provide greater customer satisfaction in less time.

Marc uses real world, industry relevant examples and stories to illustrate how customer service can be used as a tool to strengthen customer relationships. He will reveal the two types of tasks that every service representative performs, and how each one impacts the outcome.

He will also share key strategies to help a representative remain professional and effectively deflate any emotional situation, while guiding the customer towards a mutually beneficial outcome.

Delivered with Marc’s high energy style, this presentation is designed for both management, customer service staff, and anyone that has to deal with unhappy customers.
