Today, with a nod to March Madness memories of years past, we present our fab five customer tips on CSAT, the handy acronym for what we all want: customer satisfaction.

The fabulous five tips:

  • Tip 1: Say thanks for every good customer satisfaction rating
    Summary: Tara says, “If a customer leaves a good comment or rating we read it aloud to our entire team…then write to our customers personally thanking them for the kind words.”

  • Tip 2: Follow up on bad ratings
    Summary: Analyze satisfaction survey results daily, and follow up immediately to show strong customer care.

  • Tip 3: Customer feedback improves retention
    Summary: Give feedback to your customers who respond to the survey, whether to say thank you or sorry.
  • Tip 4: Personality is key
    Summary: “Turn the devil to your business into your best advocate.” This detailed tip talks about how to handle both positive and negative feedback, the benefits of personality, listening, and includes a “Zendesk tip”!
  • Tip 5: Quick response can calm frustration
    Summary: Empathizing with customers, responding quickly, and providing an opportunity for more questions or feedback will show up positively on CSAT ratings.
