Calling Facebook Customer Service? Beware of Fraudsters


Googling for a Facebook customer support phone number may connect users with fraudsters. A fraudulent number reportedly appeared not only as top result in a Google search, but also as a featured snippet — that is, highlighted in a box at the top of the search results.

He then would receive a password to unlock his account.

Dark Days Ahead for Companies That Fail Customers


It’s 2016, and there are more ways to connect than ever before. You would think customer service and customer care would be at an all-time high.

They don’t seem to understand that a customer with a problem is an opportunity to create a loyal customer who will stay with a company forever and recommend it to all their friends and contacts.

5 Customer Relationship Objectives for the Growing Biz


The amount of effort spent on talking and thinking about the best ways to connect with customers truly is incredible. The amount of ink spilled — real and virtual — the number of conferences held, and the dollars spent on efforts and expertise are vast. The irony is that businesses often start out with a natural ability to behave in a customer-centric way. When a business is small enough, it can have significant knowledge of its customers. It’s when the business scales that this knowledge starts to become unmanageable.
