Publisher's Summary

In a tight market, your most powerful growth engine - and your best protection from competitive inroads - is this: Put everything you can into cultivating true customer loyalty. Loyal customers are less sensitive to price competition, more forgiving of small glitches, and, ultimately, become "walking billboards" who will happily promote your brand.

In Exceptional Service, Exceptional Profit, insiders Leonardo Inghilleri and Micah Solomon reveal the secrets of providing online and offline customer service so superior it nearly guarantees loyalty. Their anticipatory customer service approach was first developed at The Ritz-Carlton as well as at Solomon's company Oasis, and has since proven itself in countless companies around the globe - from luxury giant BVLGARI to value-sensitive auto parts leader Carquest, and everywhere in between. Now, listeners can take the techniques that minted money for these brands and apply them directly to their own businesses.

Filled with detailed, behind-the-scenes examples, this book unlocks a new level of customer relationship that leaves your competitors in the dust, your customers coming back day after day, and your bottom line looking better than it ever has before.

Excellent insight and leadership principles

The book challenges the readers thought process by proving a series of hypothetical scenarios with prospective outcomes.
The book inspired my firm to develop a language and problem resolution process that is clearly defined with all hands on deck.
We are also developing a KIG language. I would highly recommend this book.

Great fundamentals

Our company has taken a different approach to customer support this year, and we've adopted many of the fundamentals this book presented. To be honest, the three Appendix items were perhaps as valuable as anything else in the book -- we put all of them to good use immediately.
