Check Out The Insane Lengths Zappos Customer Service Reps Will Go To

Check Out The Insane Lengths Zappos Customer Service Reps Will Go To | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

An interesting success and perhaps some ideas for improving your service or approach. As we can see, the possibilities are limitless [note Martin Gysler].


Everyone knows what it's like calling a company's customer service department: If you're unlucky, you're routed to Asia where an outsourced staff member reads a script in halting English.


Online retailer Zappos, by contrast, has 500 employees in a call center in Las Vegas who have all received seven weeks of training on how to make customers happy. The company (now a unit of Amazon) has been called "insane" and "fanatical" for the way it will do anything to please its customers. The stories are legendary, and are a key part of its brand:

  • In 2011, Zappos sent flowers to a woman who ordered six different pairs of shoes because her feet were damaged by harsh medical treatments.

Want to Make Money Online? Then Stop Reading and Get Moving!

Want to Make Money Online? Then Stop Reading and Get Moving! | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post here at problogger.net about how Firepole Marketing makes money.


I explained that even though we’re less than a year old, we’ve already made over $20,000, and that over half of that came from offline sources.

 

We wanted to know how other bloggers make their money. Is it all online, or do they make their money offline as well?

 

In other words, we wanted to know if they were Semi-Local.

 

In October 2011, we surveyed 153 people; 107 who were already Semi-Local, and 46 who aspired to be. We asked a number of questions to find out what was really involved in becoming and being Semi-Local. Here are the highlights of what we learned.

It’s Here. | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

There’s more documentation on ‘how to make money online’ than most subjects out there, yet I can safely say that 99% of people who try to replace their offline income fail to do so. Many of you have seen the case studies of marketers – who clearly already know what they’re doing – building another successful website. Inspiring? Without a doubt. But obviously there’s still something missing.

 

For a long time I wondered what it would take to fill that gap. What would increase the number of people who follow advice in this space and actually achieve some form of success. Then the answer came to me. Or rather, she did...

How To Protect Your Business

How To Protect Your Business | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

“The strange thing is that everyday, we see people dying – but don’t actually believe we will.” – Anonymous


We read about it in the newspapers. We hear it on the news. We see it on television. Sudden, unexpected death. Caused by accidents, disasters, and disease.

 

Yet until it strikes close to home, we tend to filter it out through a “can’t happen to us” filter, which keeps uncomfortable news at arms’ length. But closing your eyes and burying your head in the sand like an ostrich is not always a good business strategy!

 

So, as uncomfortable as it may be, I’m going to talk today about how to disaster-proof your online business.

Why Learning Entrepreneurship is Essential for Online Marketers

Why Learning Entrepreneurship is Essential for Online Marketers | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

Let’s face it – the goal of many online marketers is to make more money. Some marketers build and leverage relationships to get noticed, some use automation tactics, some throw truckloads of money at advertising, and some people give away stuff. All of these actions have one premise – to make more money.

 

What if you discovered a few traits that would help you make even more money? What if marketing suddenly became easier? Then your world would become more beautiful, right?

 

You can then finally buy that big house or nice car you’ve been longing for. Or maybe you can finally go off to the Bahamas and disappear for a while. Or maybe you can donate a large sum of cash to a charity. Whatever it is that you are after, the solution is right in front of you.

Make Money Locally—and Globally—Through Your Blog

Make Money Locally—and Globally—Through Your Blog | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

Our blog is less than a year old.


We started Firepole Marketing less than a year ago, and we’ve done pretty well with it over that time. A lot of people know who we are, and what we do.

 

I’ve even been dubbed the Freddy Krueger of Blogging.

 

And while we’re not at the scale of a major site like Copyblogger, we still do pretty well, to the point that we make a decent amount of money online, and occasionally even help others to do the same.

We aren’t the only ones to have done that, and I remember that a year ago, when I saw others make the same sort of claim, I always wanted more information. I wanted to know how much money they were really making, and where that money was coming from...
