    first impression impacted your service
    experience. What was the result?

    serving customers?

The Importance of Positive First Impressions
  • It takes 30 to 60 seconds for someone to make an
    immediate judgment about you
  • In fact, people form up to 11 different opinions
    about you in those first 30 seconds. The great
    majority of those opinions are formed with the
    first 7 seconds

Challenges to Customer Service

  2. Different Expectations
  3. Not dealing with the human side of the
    interaction
  4. Not attentively listening
  5. Not using Supportive Language

Perception
  • Virtually every problem in human relations stems
    from a difference in perception.
  • Robert L. Katz

Perception
Our perceptions represent how we interpret or
view what goes on around us. It is mostly a
learned process through personal experiences and
what is told to us by others. It is a filtering
system Since we all have different backgrounds
and past experiences, our individual perceptions
differ.

Expectations are Perceptual!
  • Expectations exist in the mind of the customer
  • They are sometimes accurate and rational
    sometimes not!
  • They reflect an overall reaction to the whole
    buying experience
  • The way customers evaluate their customer
    experience is how their expectations were met or
    exceeded!

    Customers, by Paul R. Timm, Ph.D.

Exceeding Expectations Breeds Loyalty

    are met- they are NEUTRAL (Indifferent zone)
  • To motivate customers to return, something more
    than adequate service must be experienced.

    customers
