It has been a disgustingly hot and humid day here in Central Ontario today. I was out this morning to pick up some thermal paste so Shaun can finish putting my computer back together tonight, and it was pretty hot but still bearable. But, I just checked the weather channel before deciding whether to pick up my laundry tonight or leave it until tomorrow, and it says that with the humidity this afternoon it’s 41C out there. So I’ll be staying put in front of my air conditioner for the rest of the night, and going to pick my stuff up in the morning.
Needless to say I haven’t gotten much work done today between running around this morning, and then my regular Monday afternoon Zoom calls. So, that’s why you’re getting an evening edition of today’s newsletter instead.
Today’s Read: How to Deal with Mistakes and Be Real with Your Customers
Here’s a newsflash for you: we’re all human. And most people will accept the fact that we’re all human, and that we’re not perfect, and that sometimes we make mistakes. The problem, from a customer service point of view, comes when you make a mistake and you don’t admit it. All throughout this series we’ve said that you need to be human and show yourself as a real person, and one of the best times to do this is when you’re dealing with a mistake that you’ve made.
Here are a few ways you can deal with your mistakes and be real with your customers:
Apologize and Say You’re Sorry – Yes, I know I’m Canadian and we love to say we’re sorry. But you really do need to apologize and use the words when you make a mistake with your customers. And here’s a little secret: it doesn’t hurt, and it gets easier every time you do it.
The one thing I would caution here though is to use your apologies wisely. There is one school of marketing thought that says you should resend an email every time you make a mistake. And some marketers make mistakes with surprising regularity so that they have an excuse to email two and sometimes three times a day. Don’t do that. When it comes to newsletters and emails, unless it’s a real emergency – like you forgot the link to the thing you were promoting – save your apology until the next day’s edition and deal with it then.
Save your apologies for the really big mistakes – like the time I was trying to add a bonus to a customer’s account, and accidently deleted her whole account. That was not a fun apology to have to make!
Admit You Made a Mistake – When you do make a mistake, it’s best to admit it and take responsibility for it openly. You cannot control what others do so when you do this, always focus on what you did that you can now change.
Be Understanding of Your Customer’s Concern – When you can talk to them about how they feel and demonstrate that you understand through your words and actions, you’ll go a long way to repairing whatever damage your mistake caused. Your customers will know when you’re being real.
Explain What Went Wrong – When you are telling them you’re sorry, explain to them what you did wrong. When you give point by point information about where things broke down and did not work, the customer can see that you’ve given it a lot of consideration and they’ll feel cared about and heard.
Share How You Can Prevent It Happening Again – Since you can explain what went wrong, you can also explain how you’re going to stop it from happening again. That way, you take the risk and fear from them.
Move Forward – After you apologize and explain what went wrong, it’s important to let it go and move on. If the customer can’t let it go, then chances are they are not your ideal customer. But, if you can get past it you will build a stronger relationship with them over the incident.
When you are an open and real with your customers, you’ll find that making mistakes won’t end your business, and may even strengthen your relationships with them.
