10 Best Customer Service Books

  1. Customer Loyalty: How to Earn It, How to Keep It by Jill Griffin

In this revised edition, author Jill Griffin gives practical advice on garnering loyalty from customers. She explains that oftentimes “more thought and preparation goes into how to get the telephone to ring (strategy), than what to do once it rings (execution and implementation).” Chapters are based on key points, including turning first-time buyers into repeat customers, preventing customer loss, and recovering from customer loss. Each chapter offers steps to follow, a succinct summary of main points, and ready-to-use tools for getting started. Customer Loyalty is a comprehensive resource for business people who are looking to improve customer service and satisfaction.

 

  1. The Amazement Revolution: Seven Customer Service Strategies to Create an Amazing Customer (and Employee) Experience by Shep Hyken

Customer service isn’t a department-it’s a philosophy that includes every person and aspect of the best and brightest companies. In a tough, competitive, and price-sensitive economy, customer service is one of the most essential tools to separate your business from the competition. In this sequel to the bestseller The Cult of the Customer, Shep Hyken delivers seven powerful strategies that any organization can implement to create greater customer and employee loyalty.

  1. The Thank You Economy by Gary Vaynerchuk

Gary Vaynerchuk writes here that the era of small courtesies is returning to the business world, now that social media has enabled businesses to communicate more intimately across different channels. He also writes that, if businesses don’t pursue 1:1 customer care and engagement, they’ll lose business to their competitors. This book will teach you about how to use the power of technology to more effectively grow relationships with customers around the world.

 

  1. The Loyalty Effect: The Hidden Force Behind Growth, Profits, and Lasting Value by Frederick F. Reichheld

The business world seems to have given up on loyalty: many major corporations now lose-and have to replace-half their customers in five years, half their employees in four, and half their investors in less than one. Fred Reichheld’s national bestseller The Loyalty Effect show why companies that ignore these skyrocketing defections face a dismal future of low growth, weak profits, and shortened life expectancy. Reichheld demonstrates the power of loyalty-based management as a highly profitable alternative to the economics of perpetual churn. He makes a powerful economic case for loyalty-and takes you through the numbers to prove it. His startling conclusion: Even a small improvement in customer retention can double profits in your company. The Loyalty Effect will change the way you think about loyalty, profits, and the nature of business.

  1. Outside In: The Power of Putting Customers at the Center of Your Business by Harley Manning

Based on fourteen years of research by the customer experience leaders at Forrester Research, Outside In offers a complete roadmap to attaining the experience advantage.

Identifying and solving these problems has the potential to dramatically increase sales and decrease costs.

Here are Jeffrey Gitomer’s 3.5 compelling reasons why you and every employee in your company must own this book, must read this book, and must act on the principles of this book:

  1. It contains a game plan that any customer-serving employee, salesperson, manager, executive, or entrepreneur can enact to ensure loyal customers.
  2. Any front-line employee can read it and “get it.” Any front-line employee can read it and “do it.”
