Almost everybody is aware of the company American Express (also known as AMEX). And, why not be? After all, it’s the 14th most admired companies in the world, as ranked by Fortune in 2018. No company is ever born bigger. At some point or in the initial stages, each of the top firms was small. They become bigger because customers make them and that is possible by offering quality support services to the customer.
Similarly, AMEX was a small company when it came into existence that later continued to grow and gained a huge popularity. The company is better known for the quality of calling services it offers. Each and every call is given an equal and special attention. And that’s what the customer really loves about.
In a nutshell, it’s crucial to keep your customer happy and satisfied to achieve a better business growth.
Below described are the tips on how inbound call centre services can be made more effective. Let’s get started-
Create buyer’s persona of your ideal customer
Essentially, a buyer persona consists of information on your ideal customers such as demographics, age, behavior pattern, motivations, and goals. The reason you must create a buyer persona is that it helps to gather in-depth insights about your customers. A buyer persona demonstrates most of the essential aspects of both, your customers and products/services offered by you. You can know why your product is being considered over the other’s, what customers are actually looking for when they come to you, what makes your product better and unique than your competitors, and what else you can add (but within the budget) to your offerings in order to retain your customers.
Once you have created the buyer persona, you can easily attract the most potential leads to your business.
Training reps on specific product or service knowledge
Until you have knowledge about your own products or services, it is impossible to make others understand about the same. Only a person with complete product/service knowledge is able to answer any question or concern of the customer. A representative with in-depth knowledge sounds more confident and wiser than those who have little or no knowledge. Therefore, to ensure a rep is able to answer the customer’s queries and address the customer’s objection in an effective manner, it is important to train the agents and give a complete knowledge about the offered product or services.
Build a relationship with somebody reliable
Even if you don’t have control over anybody, it’s necessary to build a relationship with somebody who is reliable and responsible for managing your call centre effectively because you can’t be present everywhere. Identifying and getting to know such people is quite important because these people will help you achieve your objective of delivering excellent service and hitting more sales target.
It’s essential to re-examine the key performance metrics
A call center is judged by its key performance metrics. It doesn’t matter how long a call lasted, but the outcome of call surely matters. For example, your call may last for half an hour but the customer hangs up the call in frustration and leave you on the other side. It means the customer wasn’t satisfied with your solutions or you were unable to address the issue properly. Therefore, the outcome of the call was nil and zero percent efficiency was achieved.
In order to create a perfect balance between efficiency and effectiveness (business outcomes), a business’s measuring outcomes must consist of parameters such as customer satisfaction level, new business sales, net promoter scores, and lifetime value of customers.
Ask help from external experts
For a better and more effective service, it’s vital to break the walls and let few important things enter. Don’t restrict your customer contact quality by the walls of your call center. According to research, on around 10 percent of calls, advisors need the help of external experts to answer customer’s queries and provide them effective solutions. Therefore, hiring experts could be a good business strategy.
Employ Artificial Intelligence to get intelligent business insights
Today, every smart company is making use of the artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence can be used to improve the service quality in call centres. AI helps to improve the performance of workers. Utilizing AI to gather, store and associate deep customer intelligence can help quality assurance experts to deliver a higher efficiency.
There are many other ways that can be helpful in improving the effectiveness of inbound call centre services in Australia but the points explained above are the top ways to do so. Today’s most essential tip is the artificial intelligence that not only improves the service quality but also saves the cost of hiring a number of experts.
