At a Glance: Customer Service
Good customer service is as much about creating positive public awareness and goodwill for your company as it is about troubleshooting ongoing issues your customers might face, before they escalate into a bigger problem. That’s why it’s important to build a specialized team to tackle this key role the right way. After all, consumers generally tell more people about a terrible experience with a company than they do when they have a great interaction.
The best customer service agents are personable, friendly, resilient, and upbeat. They know how to interact with people in a positive way, regardless of how the interaction starts out. On Upwork, you’ll find agents who can help you keep your customer base satisfied, by working directly with customers via phone, email, live chat, social media, and other common support methods. Beyond troubleshooting, skilled agents can gather useful feedback to help improve your business and refine your customer service processes.
