Thu, 02 Mar 2017 07:47:52 -0600

One Simple Way to Improve Your Customer Experience by 100% Immediately

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 08:46:17 -0600

SHUT UP! I know... it sounds harsh but it makes the point. The key is to stop talking. It has become a "knee-jerk" reaction today to come up with excuses or reasons why you couldn't deliver an awesome customer experience. Employees are well armed today to do battle with any customer over why something didn't work the way they wanted. It's become the norm, not the exception to refute, excuse away, or simply deny the situation. I can almost guarantee you that if you are having issues with customers and they aren't having an awesome experience, this is one of the issues going on in your company. Giving employees a process and training in this area can make a dramatic improvement almost immediately after training. If you just did this ONE THING in your company, you could dramatically improve your customers' experience. IT WORKS... and it can completely change the mindset of your employees to one where they feel they are truly helping their customers. And the morale of the company increases because the employees aren't thinking in terms of "doing battle" any longer but they are now thinking in terms of a "collaborative win-win" discussion.

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 18:01:27 -0600

There have been a lot of articles talking about the big challenges McDonald's faces and how they are trying to find their way back to dominance in the fast food industry. Much of the discussion has been around their new ad agency and how they have been getting a lot wrong lately. McDonald's was built on being awesome! They came up with a model to deliver mediocre food quickly and with an experience. Customers enjoyed eating in as much as using the drive through experience. And as they added playgrounds and happy meals with toys and fun activities inside the meals they continually added to the experience. Food remained mediocre and even when they added some new products they weren't anything spectacular. You could always get a better burger from the local burger joint. But as they kept growing their experience they kept adding more and more loyal customers. They forgot about what it's like to be AWESOME! If McDonald's made a strategic decision to go back to being an experience for people they have a shot at being on top again. It's really that simple... they just aren't seeing it at the moment.
