Every company has a brand. It is the essence of what an organisation is. What values does it promote? What relationships does it create? What USPs does it pride itself on? A business brand is the culmination of everything a company does.
But a brand is only as good as the customers that support it – that is why a crucial part of successful branding efforts lies in customer support.
This is where you have the opportunity to show customers what your brand looks like in action. So, how can you make sure your brand values are closely aligned with your customer support processes? Let’s take a look at a few tips.
1. Define your brand
You can’t expect your team to promote your brand if it’s not clearly defined in the first place. To advance your brand you need to sit down and have a conversation about what it looks like. What are the core values of your organisation? What messages are you trying to get across to customers? How do you want consumers to see your brand? How should your customer support practices reflect these priorities?
By defining your brand you will have a much easier time ensuring the way your support team interacts with customers is aligned with your core values.
2. Ask for insights and use them
One of the best ways to make sure your branding and customer support processes are strong is by asking the customers themselves. What do they expect from your brand? Do they feel fully supported? Where could you improve? How are you delivering on your brand values?
Going straight to the source and asking your customers to point out what works and what doesn’t helps you better understand how strong your branding is to begin with and sets you on the right path to improving pain points.
