The Rice Report: 4 Golden Rules of Customer Service

This is the first in a series of a new category on the blog – The Rice Report – written by #Strella team member, Stephanie Rice.

I have what some would call an infectious personality. In my father’s words, I would talk to a stop sign. Growing up with a teacher as a mother, school was a priority in my house. This meant no extracurricular activities, friends, or even a job that could contribute to a potential drop in grades. As a rebellious middle child, I got my first part-time job at the age of 15. I was a cashier at a local restaurant – and I absolutely loved it! I got to know regulars and perfect my customer service skills.  I’ve always believed in four golden rules of customer service.

Writing for the Web Means New Rules

I spent Thursday evening editing a blog post for a new client looking to re-establish his online presence. His original draft contained the primary elements to convey his message, but like many people who don’t write for a living, he struggled to make it ‘blog-worthy.’ What we learned about writing in school is not the […]

When the Customer Isn't Always Right

Service is one of our company core values, as is commitment to excellence. It’s been our experience that the two go hand-in-hand to optimally serve our customers. Contrarily, the two values clash when customers are unreasonable or unwilling to do their part. For example, a customer that expects immediate answers to inquiries, but fails to […]

How to Balance Customer Wants with Needs

In any business, there are times when we struggle between giving the client what they want vs. what will generate the best outcome for them. I encounter this dilemma often, primarily because people see something working for another business and they want to replicate that formula for themselves.

Quit Making Excuses and Give Your Customers What They Need

Thanks for nothing, Facebook!

I find it ironic that – Facebook - the most popular social platform for building relationships - has the absolute worst customer service. Their service is even worse than Comcast and I didn’t think that was possible. Over the past few months, I’ve received notifications that I’ve been banned from sending friend requests for a […]

Why Tweet?

“Why should I be on Twitter? No one cares what I’m doing and I don’t care what they are doing.” This is the most common answer for people who aren’t currently using the social media platform when asked about it. That’s the easy  answer, but let’s dig a little deeper into why people give that […]
