Customer Service Excellence Quote – Tony Alessandra
“Good customer service is hard to find today.” How many times have you heard that statement? As a service provider (and we all are in any organization of more than one person since we all have internal customers), your goal should be to prepare to deliver excellent customer service to everyone with whom you have contact throughout the day. Anything less is inviting a breakdown in the customer-service provider relationship and is going to ultimately cost you and your organization. By gaining the knowledge and skills needed to interact with a diverse global customer base, you can potentially set up a win-win situation for yourself and your customers.
As an author and motivational speaker, Tony Alessandra puts it:
“Being on par in terms of price and quality
only gets you into the game.
Service wins the game.”

The key to successfully making money as an author and/or self-publisher is to brand yourself and your company and to make yourself and your book(s) a household name.
