Good customer service is essential to any internet marketing campaign

Good customer service is a necessity: customers learn to know and trust you and it
is best to avoid getting a bad reputation. Read this article to learn more about
customer service.

Your customers should be able to get in touch with you easily. Share your email
address on your site, encourage people to connect with you on social networks and
get an 800 phone number if you think your potential customers would prefer talking
with you on the phone. If you are going to use a phone number, mention when you are
usually available on your site. Customers can leave you a voicemail, but getting an
answer to their question right away is always better. Check your emails several
times a day and answer all requests as quickly as possible. Perhaps you could save
your answers to the questions you get the most so you only have to personalize each
email. Do the same thing on your social networks: do not hesitate to talk with your
customers publicly, this will give you a good reputation and encourage anyone who
subscribed to your updates to trust you.

Your customer service policies are also important. Being polite and helpful is
great, but you need to give customers what they want. If someone asks for a refund,
do not refuse it. If a package is lost or a product damaged, ship a new product for
free and give your customer a discount or an additional product as an apology. Do
not advertise your policies on your site; some people might take advantage of this
to claim they never got their package because they want a free product. Your
policies should be on your site for legal reasons, but you can use small prints and
not include them in your sales pitch. Offering a free product or a refund is a good
way to get more business from a customer you would have lost otherwise. If you offer
an additional product to the customer, he or she will probably mention this to their
friends and family.

Quality customer service also means providing the best content, products, prices and
shipping service to your customers. Take the time to find good products you can sell
at an affordable price. Good deals are not hard to find if you look around in
different warehouses or order large quantities online. You also need to compare
different shipping options and select the quickest one or the most affordable one.
Perhaps you could offer different shipping options to your customers, depending on
how quickly they want their product. As far as your content is concerned, write
about things your customers are interested in and can relate to. Do not share
content that has been written only to place a few keywords.

Apply these tips to establish a good relationship with your customers and become a
trustworthy online business. Even if good customer service is expensive and
time-consuming, it is necessary to your success.
