Synopsis:

What is the best way to improve your company or brand? Well, as surprising as this may be, customer complaints are definitely one method-as counter-productive as that may sound. Not that you want to encourage customers to complain, but knowing your customers' concerns and issues can help your company make the changes it needs to improve and become trusted in the industry and among your customer base. The word complaint carries such a negative connotation that complaints are by default automatically viewed as negative and disappointing. However, they can be used to your benefit if you listen and take appropriate action to resolve them to best satisfy the needs of your customers. Be sure to also teach your employees how to handle complaints through effective customer service training.
