Millennials want a totally different thing from businesses today, down to your customer service approach. They want top notch customer service, down to the little details, to make them keep coming back. Your team plays a big role in portraying your customer service approach to your customers. Here are ways to empower your team to deliver great customer service.

Personalize The Customer Buying Experience

Every customer relationship begins with the customer's buying experience.  Your employees who attend to your customers need to know how to relate well with the customers to make them keep coming back and in turn build on new and existing customer relationship.

Your team, especially the sales team should spend time in getting to know your customers, as this shows that  a customer that a company cares about them.  You can do this by learning and listening to your customer's needs, wants and desires, even listening to their complaints helps you get to know more about them and their product feature specifications.

Your team should be able to know who your customers are, what they buy and how they use your product or service.

Engage With Your Team

An engaged team is more likely to deliver exceptional customer service. When there's an emotional interaction between the customers and your team, it leads to a higher level of customer experience.

To increase engagement with your team, first build a work environment and organizational culture that supports it.  There's more productivity and increased loyalty when your team is working in a conducive, comfortable and happy environment. When your team is happy, automatically your customers experience happy employees and are also happy after every interaction.

Also show your team that they are valuable to your organization, your organizational goals and the customers. Make them feel like they are making a difference in the lives of the customers and are contributing immensely to the success of your organization.

Human Interaction

We are so technology driven today that we rely on technology to perform a huge amount of customer service. A lot of businesses are focused on using technology to increase business productivity, track sales and customer interaction through social media channels or chat bots.

While this is quite efficient, relying so much on technology begins to take away the human factor and deteriorates human interaction which invariably breaks down communication and lead to poor customer service.

While we are leveraging on technology to interact with our customers better, we shouldn't forget the need or crave for human interaction. Your potential customers and existing customers want a meaningful relationship with their favorite brand, to connect with your business more and you should maximize enormously on this opportunity.
