Dissatisfied Customer?

Make an Effective Complaint.

We often heard that there are two kinds of customers, those who will complain
and those who won't. The ones who complain are better for a company
because they're more likely to stick around if the company can successfully
resolve their issue. The customer who doesn't complain, on the other hand, is
more likely to quietly go elsewhere.

But sometimes it's uncomfortable to be the squeaky wheel. Even though we
write about money and personal finance,we often avoid complaining. we feel
uncomfortable being in the presence of others while they are complaining —
we stopped going to lunch with a former coworker because he complained to
the manager at almost every restaurant.

While that's a little extreme, it is important to speak up. Companies want to
retain you as a customer, especially if you're reasonable and have a valid
complaint. Good customer service still exists. The key is to approach the
complaint process with a plan.

1) Figure out what solution you want

2) Review warranties and store policies

3) Be prepared to take detailed notes

4) Be direct, but cordial

5) Choose your words wisely

6) Go up the chain of command

7) Make a social networking plea

8) Send a letter or e-mail
