Post-Sales Customer Service

Customer Service Blackboard

You've done it. You've successfully converted a prospect into a paying customer. You've shipped their order and received their payment. You can sit back and relax, right? Wrong. This is where Customer Service comes in.

As all business owners know, great customer service doesn't end at the point of sale, it's just the start of the journey. Customers will always have post-sales questions, queries and potential problems and it's vital they're given the same level of attention as new customers.

Why? Because post-sales customer service can make or break your reputation, your retention and your revenue.

Think about it. How do you feel when you buy something online and you receive no confirmation email, no tracking information, no follow-up survey or thank you note? Or worse, when you encounter an issue with your purchase and you can't reach anyone to help you resolve it?

You feel frustrated, ignored and undervalued. You're unlikely to buy from that seller again or recommend them to others. You might even leave a negative review or complain on social media.

On the other hand, how do you feel when you buy something online and you receive timely and helpful communication throughout the delivery process, a personalized thank you note, a request for feedback and an offer for future discounts or incentives? Or when you have a question or a problem and you get a prompt and courteous response from a knowledgeable and friendly representative who solves it for you?

You feel appreciated, respected and valued. You're more likely to buy from that seller again or recommend them to others. You might even leave a positive review or praise them on social media.

The difference is clear. Post-sales customer service can turn one-time buyers into loyal customers and brand advocates. It can also help you identify areas for improvement, prevent refunds and chargebacks, reduce negative word-of-mouth and increase positive word-of-mouth.
