  1. Customer service is an big part of building an relationship with the customers. A good representative has to be well prepared look after the customer needs. However, some customers can become hectic to handle so should they lie to get out of the situation. The most best reason to have a good customer relationship is to be ready for questions and answer them confidently.

  2. I used to be involved with sales and I always felt terrible when I wasn’t honest with customers. I was prompted to oversell how impressive the product was and I always felt bad about it. I told myself that I was representing the product in the way the company had wanted. This is why I never want to be in sales.
