When the economy is good, says a BPO expert, any “good enough” contact center companies can still do reasonably well. The demand for call center services would be high, and there’s always a market for good enough services.
But as the recent economic meltdown has taught us, that when the economy is bad, good enough companies in all business fields are the first to scramble and fold.
As the entrepreneur guru will always tell us: “There is always room at the top.” But how do you get to the top?
Here are three simple steps that you can do to take your call center services from good to great:
1. Find out what makes you stand out from others, and milk it
Do you have something unique to offer to your customers? If there is, what is it? If none, you certainly need to have one. Business owners that realize this, take advantage and flaunt it. That makes them very successful. Simply put, they take what they are better at and they exploit it.
Best examples of companies who are good at this are Zappos.com and L.L. Bean. The former is widely known for their over-the-top customer service. The latter is best known for their “treat the customers with compassion” principle. Now, go figure.
2. Again, exceed customer expectations
People will love a company that treat them well and is always ready to help them, even extend that help an extra mile. Attitude will always make a big difference. Your over-all call center services and actual performance will always reflect about your company in the end.
So long story short, always keep your customers happy by serving them best, and exceeding their expectations will certainly feed on your business success.
3. “Love your business more than your ego”
That’s a tweaked line from Jim Collin’s bestselling, must-read business book, Good to Great. In the book, the author pointed out great companies in the world today, and most of them, if not all, are personally self-effacing and humble.
And yet they’re also totally driven and passionate, doing everything they can to make their respective businesses succeed.
