The gold standard of customer support used to be following up in under 15 minutes. Some consider follow up within the hour to be world-class. But in the new always-on, always-connected economy, 15 minutes is unacceptable.
How long someone has to wait for a response from your shop makes all the difference in building a relationship, closing business, and delighting a valued customer. Today everyone is always connected, ready to engage, and communicate on their terms. It’s true of our customers, and it's true of our team members too. Think about how you interact with your friends, your family, and the shop team. Text messaging likely plays a huge part. We don’t pick up the phone and call even our best friends anymore without sending a text to check and see if now is a good time to talk.
