It’s Not Just About Happy Customers; Angry Customers Matter Too

31 Mar

All companies — large and small — treasure and understand the value of their happiest customers. The number and loyalty of these customers is often the difference between success and failure.

But, how should we deal with angry customers? As a general rule, we should not give up on them until we understand their feelings and try to turn those negative feelings around.

Consider these observations from Vision Critical, which provides a cloud-based customer intelligence platform that allows companies to build engaged, secure communities of customers:

“The value of your happiest customers is well understood, but the influence and potential of angry customers should not be underestimated. On average, Americans tell nearly twice as many people about negative experiences as positive ones, and the anger of the social media-empowered customer can easily go viral and inspire a movement. Of the millions of people who post tweets about customer service every week, 80 percent are negative. All it takes is the right hashtag at the right moment to turn one person’s gripe into a social media maelstrom.”

Take a look at this in-depth white paper from Vision Critical.

A Study on Global Internet Censorship

24 Mar

We know that open access to Internet content is not available to all residents in every country around the world. But where is censorship the worst?

In a controversial research study of this topic, Jeremy Bender reports the following for Business Insider. DO YOU AGREE OR DISAGREE? WHY?

“Internet censorship and limitations on online speech are an unfortunate fact of life around the world. In 2014, Reporters without Borders designated 19 countries as “enemies of the internet,” including the United States and Great Britain. According to the organization, these countries all engaged in forms of online censorship, ranging from the UK carrying out a distributed denial of service attack against Anonymous to North Korea having building its own internal Internet and walling its citizens off from the global Web.”

“The infographic from George Washington University’s Master’s in Paralegal Studies Online program visualizes the various forms that Internet censorship can take around the globe.”

 

 

At Work, Be a GREAT Colleague

12 Mar

All of us need to understand our roles and functions in the companies for which we work. We should want both our bosses and peers to view us in a favorable light and perceive us as great colleagues.

As Officevibe notes:

“Let’s face it, we all have been around (or have been) someone in a workplace who just doesn’t want to be there. You can see right off the bat what type of traits disengaged employees have just by talking to them in the office for a bit. Now, by definition disengaged employees are people who don’t care for their company and have no intention of helping it grow; so they can be quite harmful if they’re within your office.”

Don’t let yourself fall into the negative roles highlighted in this infographic.
