Common questions people ask me are usually the 5 W's and H of providing exceptional customer service (who, what, where, when, why, and how). My last blog was on why is exceptional customer service so important? This final blog in our series of six is the how.

How should exceptional customer service be provided? Making sure your staff is properly trained is most important. Here are some tips to get started.

Before your embark on staff training, explain to your staff why delivering exceptional customer service is so important. Google "customer service statistics" and share some of those with your staff.

When you are ready to make the commitment to providing exceptional customer service throughout the entire customer experience, make it part of your company culture. The commitment to deliver exceptional customer service needs to come from the top down and be part of the company’s culture. This means putting in place policies that will improve internal customer service. An example of a policy you could put into place to ensure excellent internal customer service is a zero tolerance gossiping policy.

Once your staff understands how serious you are about customer service and why it is so important, they will make the effort to provide that kind of exceptional customer service that will help you grow your business.
