Not every customer interaction will be a positive one, no matter where you work, so the best strategy at all times is to keep a level head and work to understand the customer’s issues on an individual basis. Although you can’t please everyone every time, you will be able to handle most customer issues in this way. Always be straightforward and walk your customers patiently through the process of solving their problems. If you don’t provide enough information on what works to solve their issues and why, they may get frustrated and non responsive. Make sure they know what’s going on with their product or service. After all, they paid for it and for your help when they decided to use your company for their needs.
