Craft a story about how your product, service — or you — have made a positive impact on a customer. Look at it through the lens of a client you have successfully served. What’s your heroic resolution? Tell it through the lens of the customer.

Episode 274: Design Your Ideal Customer Experience

1 Simple Thing Action:
Make a list of what each step of the customer experience would be if it were performed exactly right (from the customer’s perspective). Begin that list by answering the question, “If everything went exactly right, what would that be like?” After you make that list, the second step is to say, “What do we have to do make it work out that way? Are there old policies or procedures we have to eliminate? Are there changes we need to make in terms of the design of the experience?” The goal is to create the ultimate customer experience for every customer or prospect every single time.
