I Don't Have Any Competition

You’d better think twice about that title statement. Any person or organization that your customers do business with is a competitor. Notice that word I bolded . . . ANY.

Before a customer calls your business, could they have just talked to a Disney reservations representative about their upcoming Walt Disney World vacation? Could they have talked to FedEx about an emergency pickup? Maybe they ordered some clothing from Zappos.

All of the above mentioned companies are tops in the field of customer service - and for good reason. Just the mere fact that your customer talked to them first can make your “great” service experience feel more typical or even down right inferior. People will unconsciously compare every business they deal with.

Don’t you want to be one of the Disney's, FedEx's, or Zappos’?
