Customer Service Hint: Appearance Matters

Customer Service Hint: Appearance Matters
Melina Metzger, Public Relations Manager

In our latest monthly poll, 82% of readers said appearance makes a big impact on customer service.

There is a plentitude of research to support this. For example, a recent research report from Retail Customer Experience showed the external appearance of a store can be just as important to a consumer as cost and service.

Pamela Unruh on behalf of Expert Village has an online video series on customer service. Check out her tips on creating a friendly, professional appearance.

At Safelite AutoGlass, we do our best to have a professional appearance, which ranges from our stores to our vans and from our technician uniforms to their tools.

Please take our August poll: Does your company use employee engagement as a strategy to achieve customer delight?
