Good customer service sometimes isnt enough, business owners should aim for exceptional customers services.

There are many marketing techniques that can be used to attract customers but ultimately, success lies with delivery of customer service.
Susan Ward explains in the article Good customer service is all about bringing customers back. And about sending them away happy – happy enough to pass positive feedback about your business along to others, who may then try the product or service you offer for themselves and in their turn become repeat customers.
First in Susan Wards list is Answer your phone.

With the increased use of mobile phones to browse the internet and purchase online, making a call to a business is quick and simple for consumers to do.
Susan Ward explains the importance of Answer your phone – Get call forwarding. Or an answering service. Hire staff if you need to. But make sure that someone is picking up the phone when someone calls your business. (Notice I say “someone”. People who call want to talk to a live person, not a fake “recorded robot”.).
