Listen to them and act according to that, and if you can go out of your way to make them happy, do it.

If you can go and meet them face to face then do it. Nothing is more important than being able to listen to the customer's concerns when looking at them directly. If they have a particular pain you can solve easily then I also think its worth it to do so.

@felipe_otalora I agree. Face to face dialogue is the best way to understand their frustrations. Emails don't always convey the right emotions.

@felipe_otalora @benjidisciple So, a Zoom call, for example?

@felipe_otalora @laura_vasquez95 Exactly. Taking the time out of your day really shows you care.

Proven Psychological way to deal with Unhappy customer is Ithe first reaction is usually the first thing that goes wrong. When someone attacks, we intuitively shoot into stress and defense mode – fight or flight. But that’s exactly the wrong mindset if your aim isn’t to throw a punch but to calm the customer down. Defense is the standard response to anger – and it mostly consists out of arguing why the customer’s anger is unfounded. But it’s pointless to argue with someone whose amygdala is on fire. In this condition they are physically incapable to listen to reason.
