Others, like Electronic Bazaar are fantastically clueless. And, everything is measureable. This one is a little off-course from my normal topics, but it’s a customer service train-wreck with measureable results.
This is a story about poor customer service, with a bit of measurement thrown in. While buyer beware is true, the real moral is company beware…for there are now a lot of things consumers can do to express their frustration. We have, at our fingertips, quite a few ways to skin the proverbial cat to spread the word about poor customer service. All it takes is a little imagination.
Just a quick update from Salt Lake City where I’m attending, and presenting, at the Adobe Omniture Summit 2011.
