Customer Experience-First Impressions. Scarface and Recyclers.

By Paul D'Adamo | Mar 1, 2017 10:20:19 AM

This is a blog about the First Impressions and the Customer Experience.

How many chances do you get to make a First Impression? No, that is not a trick question.

I have two videos to share with you. The first is rather serious. Well, if you are as obsessed with Customer Service as I am, it is serious. Historically, the auto recycling industry has not had the best reputation for customer service. It is a perception that hangs over our heads, even for the most progressive auto recyclers. That only means we have to work harder every day to overcome it.

We May Not Be Selling Cupcakes But We Can Still Offer Outrageous Customer Service

Sometimes I wish we were selling Cupcakes. It sounds so easy. Some flour, sugar, eggs, water and voila  . . . cupcakes which we could sell by the thousands. In fact, there are alot of business ideas that seem easier than what we are doing every day . . . selling Genuine OEM Recycled Auto Parts.

People love cupcakes and they might actually come from near and far to get one. "Wow, that was just heavenly" might be a comment you would hear after someone took a major league bite from a scrumpdillyicious cupcake from the world renowned Pauly D's World Famous Cupcake Factory. Hungry yet? Along with the fabulous cupcakes, customers would receive outrageous customer service.

Auto Recycling Business Owners can benefit from Business Coaching

Do you remember coaches from your childhood? Whether they were your baseball coach, teacher, or parent, there were many people who helped you learn to throw a curve ball, name all 50 states, or ride a bike. According to Merriam-Webster, a Coach is someone who teaches and trains an athlete or performer.   Well, we certainly do a lot of running around in our business and we certainly expect ourselves and our teams to perform at a high level. Coaching is an integral part of our learning and development as a child. So why do we stop when we are adults? When was the last time someone coached you?
