I Want to Do It Myself by Lynn Barnhart

I like to do things myself. Maybe that’s my inner 2-year-old trying to get out. When I can’t do things myself, then I’m usually interested in getting just a little help so I can still finish on my own. This is probably why I like chat and I also don’t wonder why chat adoption has doubled in 2 years or that 51% of people prefer chat so they can multi-task.
Customer service can be a true competitive differentiator. How do I know? Because a recent Forrester study found that Customer Experience leading companies had a 22.5% stock market return over the last five years versus a 46.3% loss for Customer Experience laggards.
So why wouldn’t you want to invest in self-service options, or minimal agent intervention options, for customers to answer their own questions? And why wouldn't you provide the right opportunities for customers with complex issues to be channeled to an agent for one-on-one service? This provides your customers’ with the right answer at the right time through the right channel.
