Create a powerfully positive first impression.
Manage each moment of every contact.
Don't gamble with the 7/11 rule!
In only seven seconds, a customer forms 11 impressions about you and your organization.
.... and then they make one of 3 decisions:
- Like you
- Dislike you
Now, go back to the 11 impressions, rate yourself through your customer's eyes. Rate yourself and your business from 1 - 5 (1 = least, 5 = best) on each impression...
55 is fantabulous
45 - 54 is exceptional
35 - 44 is losing customers
0 - 34 is get help now!
