Generally speaking, bank customer service should be very efficient, but when you see notice that your bank is not working effectively, you should consider improving your customer service reps through necessary training. Here are a few tips you could follow in this regard.
1. Let your current and new customers be aware of your continuous commitment to offering any help focused on various service concerns. By doing so, you could post obvious signs in bank windows, drive-through areas and in on-hold phone messages. Such signs could be presented in the type of a short slogan expressing your thanks to the customer for their business or a telephone number for customer service assistance. If customers think your bank tellers and other service personnel are easily accessible, they would be glad to visit your bank with their service concerns rather than truing to another bank.
2. Try to start kind of chit-chat at each meeting with customers. When a customer comes onto the teller for making a deposit, you should thank the customer for choosing the bank once again. You should be concerned about raising an open-ended question to the customer to get more possible information about their daily life. For example, if the customer mentions of fighting with the bad flu, you should offer him a pack of cough lozenges together with regular transaction receipt, then you expect a loyal customer the next time, because when he is struggling with the cold and searching for cold medicine, he happen to find your care pack at home, he will remember your bank with appreciation, thus encouraging him to visit your bank more regularly.
3. Remember to tell your customers at once when a severe mishap comes up in the normal business activities by any possible approach, such as texting message or using any other instant tool. If something really occurs, affecting the customer accounts right at the weekend, as you have notified this coming event of the customer in advance, he would be grateful to your bank and make necessary arrangements which would be much helpful in securing their money.
