“Your life is right now! It’s not later! It’s not in that timeof retirement. It’s not when the lover gets here. It’s not when you’ve moved into the new house. It’s not when you get the better job. Your life is right now. It will always be right now. You might as well decide to start enjoying your life right now, because it’s not ever going to get better than right now – until it gets better right now!”

~Abraham Hicks

The eight new rules of customer service…

3 Jun

The Australian economy might have sailed through the recession relatively unscathed, but don’t think that customers haven’t been changed by the GFC.

Here are the eight new rules of customer services:

Rule 1: Consumers are really thinking about what they need, why they need it and if they need it.

Rule 2: It’s back to basics. Simplicity is what the world needs now. Embrace it.

Rule 3: Have a meaningful purpose.

Rule 4: Forget about selling products, deliver service.

Rule 5: Play well and collaborate.

Rule 6: Have a dialogue with customers, not a monologue.

Rule 7: One click and you are out.

Rule 8: Small is the new big.
