The New Basics of Professional Customer Service

The landscape of what customers expect in professional customer service from organizations continues to change at a frantic pace. What was “good enough” yesterday, likely is “bad enough” to lose a customer today.

While we can’t ignore the impact and benefits of the online experience and their impact on how customers view “human-less service”, the need for organizations to provide professional customer service experiences continues to differentiate the organizations that create loyal customers and fans, versus those that get-by, survive and potentially even fail.

This interactive and informative program explores two critical customer service competencies:

1. Professional customer service expectations from the eyes of the customer and;
2. A road map to creating new internal professional customer service expectations for your organization

Putting the “Relationship” in Media Relations

Libraries rely on earned media coverage as a way to get the word out about their services and programs. However, as the media landscape shifts and shrinks, we can no longer rely on traditional tactics like press releases to garner media coverage.

 

Using case studies, we will look at ways to build relationships with reporters and producers at traditional media outlets, as well as the entrepreneur-minded owners of new media outlets. We will talk about the importance of reaching out to potential media partners before we want something, so we can learn more about their goals and business models. Then we will discuss ways to work with the media to generate coverage and give it longer and broader life on social media.

 

Takeaways from this program will include:

•        Learning how to build relationships with the media when you aren't promoting something

•        Increasing your "earned media" potential to reach broader audiences

•        Seeing real-life case studies of successful media partnerships

  • Learning how to leverage the "new media" of paid and editorial content
