This is the workshop you’ve been waiting for – a LIVE Internet connection so you can see what the buzz is all about, while an expert in Internet-based customer service explains what it all means! Customer service departments looking to “get on the Net” need to prepare for the opportunities, pitfalls, and competitive market niches that are being created in Cyberspace.

This in-depth, half-day workshop specifically designed for non-technical customer service professionals prepares you to more fully participate in the marketplace. Basic concepts, terms, practices, and directions will be clearly defined and demonstrated. A number of successful online customer service centers will be closely examined, as we analyze in detail the characteristics of their success. We’ll illustrate exactly how these companies are creating satisfied customizers and reducing operational costs. And most importantly, you’ll learn in this interactive workshop how to apply those techniques to your own online customer service venture. Demonstrations and discussions will include:

  • Auto-response email
  • Following up with personal email
  • Answering their questions before they ask them! Frequently Asked Questions with answers
  • Getting customers to help each other: online discussion groups
  • Getting your data out there: online libraries of technical specifications, ties with corporate systems (e.g. FedEx)
  • Putting it at their fingertips: using search engines and hierarchical indices
  • Personalized web pages and automated personal notification services by email
