A quick dive into Customer Experience Recovery
In July 2020, I had the privilege of speaking with Katie Stable of Cultivate Customer Experience. We talked about all things Customer Experience Recovery:
Janelle: What is Customer Experience Recovery?
Katie: Have you ever experienced a truly terrible customer experience and felt like the organisation simply didn’t care? If your answer is yes, the likelihood is that you didn’t remain their customer for long!
But what if they could have turned it around? What if they could have changed your rubbish experience into an EPIC experience?
You would probably give them a second chance, right? Despite the initial rubbish experience, their care and ability to recover the experience would likely make you stick around.
And that is exactly what customer experience recovery is. It’s the ability to proactively remedy the situation, turning bad customer experience into GREAT customer experience and making sure your customer swiftly moves from feeling dissatisfied to feeling that you have surpassed their expectations!
