News : Customers Expect Same-Day-Response
May 21, 2014 -- Nearly nine in ten customers have requested help with a product or service online and two thirds expect a same-day response, according to a report.
Lithium Technologies’ survey of 2,100 American consumers also showed that 43 percent expect a response within an hour and 14 percent expect it in five minutes.
81 percent said that they use the web to research big purchases, with two thirds of respondents using two or more online sources to aid their decisions.
There was good news for businesses as 61 percent of Americans disagreed that they are more likely to complain about than praise a product or service online.
However, younger customers were more likely to complain than older ones.
