Maybe you’ve seen Nancy Friedman on TV. I interviewed her in the first story we did on hold times in 2006. She’s also appeared on Oprah. And now… she’s giving away some money.
Telephone Doctor Customer Service Contest
On a recent trip to Las Vegas while waiting to check into one of the mega hotels on the strip, I saw something that surprised me.
I couldn’t help but notice how surly and down right rude some of the reception/check in staff were to the guests. With all that’s going on in this down economy, I wondered what it would take for them to smile, say something nice and be more polite. Others in line noticed it too. We started talking and we all agreed we wouldn’t want to come back to this property.
YES it’s tougher now. YES times are difficult. YES jobs are being lost. YES people are spending less. But the good news is they are still spending. And customers want to spend their money where they are welcomed and appreciated. It got us thinking, in this down economy, what companies are rising to the top to keep your business? Who’s doing more than the bare minimum?
