The combination of self help and customer service 2021
The entire website industry has focused on customer self help for many years.
From a business perspective driving down variable costs and allowing visitors to sort out their own problems initially sounded like a good idea.
The idea that expensive telephone support could be removed altogether was attractive to the board.
But unpleasantly attractive to the customer.
Many business fell on their sword, ask any bank just for starters.
Live ticket and a myriad of customer service tech evolved to help customer service.
CHAT rooms were embraced to provide customer service.
And then CHAT bots pretending to be a live support agent tried to solve the customer service problems of self help.
Now AI is all the rage.
And all along the most massive surge of change manifested.
The Smartphone USER.
In fact the whole idea of self help for the millennia generation suited their independent mindset.
Embracing self help smashed the traditional sales cycle.
Millennial’s simply by-pass the traditional sales cycle.
Their focus is on the referral.
The love of immediacy.
The personal relevance.
The ease of passing the word on social media.
The purpose of the website is being changed by the Smartphone user.
The self serving business interests of big business was just like squeezing a balloon full of water.
The new Smartphone generation took the best bits and took their interest and their cash else where.
Self help and the Millennial.
Websites deliver customer self help.
