Creating the Ultimate Customer Experience: Priceless


Share on LinkedIn

The credit card commercial’s catchphrase tells us to blithely charge all those pesky expenses like clothing, computer accessories, or even hot dogs at the big game – just pay right there with a swipe of this card. But it also reminds us that some things can’t be paid for with plastic, the “priceless” experiences like sharing the fun of that game with a favorite friend or beloved child.

“Priceless” – meaning you can’t put a dollar value on it – can apply to everyday experiences, too, from a double rainbow in the summer sky to a brilliant idea for making your business more efficient. Not every idea qualifies as priceless, but the flow of ideas and opinions is an asset no credit card can pay for. When a customer seeks you out with an idea for something he’s thought about, it demonstrates how much he not only values your service but wants to see you do better. An employee’s suggestion tells you she’s thinking on, and off, the job.

You may need to streamline and tweak the ideas you’re offered before putting them into practice, or you may find them naive or impractical for your business. No matter. The value of input by those paying attention to what you do is indeed “priceless.”

What ideas are you hearing that will keep customers, employees, and you smiling?
