The Copy Shop Guy,
Have you ever been to a print shop, copy shop or post office and thought to yourself, “This guy does not like his job?” Wherever I go, I critique a business on their level of customer service. There are a couple of particulars that make me mad about the experiences I have had at these types of businesses. I believe that businesses should understand that these things make or break your company’s reputation.
Taking pride in your work is an important part of any quality customer service experience. Clients, customers, and potential franchisees can tell your passion for what you are doing with your life just by talking to you. Personally, I hate going to the print shop, copy shop or post office. This is just based on the fact that the people that work there obviously despise their job. It does something to the morale of the store when I think, “they do not look happy.” It gives you the feeling of impatience, for instance “I cannot wait to get out of here.” That is not a feeling I want to have and it is the reason why drive thru’s were invented.
Dude, you’re a Barista, a good example of what I mean is at about 58 seconds into this video the attitude of a coffee shop guy is the same way felt about the copy shop guy.
Getting it done right the first time. The main idea here is that no matter what you do just get it done right the first time. Listen and be respectful of what the customer’s needs are. Whether you are getting copies, print outs, banners, or getting something notarized, just put other people before yourself. Think to yourself, “How would I want to be treated if I were in their position.” Do not think that this is the end but that better things are to come. Optimism is a powerful tool. It will make everyone’s experience much better.
Finally, taking pride in your work no matter if you are a CEO of a fortune 500 company or a cashier at Kinko’s will make yours and the customers experience a better one. Daydreaming, being lazy, or treating people like you should be somewhere else will not get you anywhere in this world. It will lead to much bigger and better things.
Printing in Dunwoody… Expectations in customer service, and how to get in and out without the headache!!!
Printing in Dunwoody…
Expectations in customer service, and how to get in and out without the headache!!!
Small business and home office owners rejoice! This is a guide to finding a reliable printer that
will be there for you when deadlines are close, new business cards are needed in a hurry, or the
color copies for your next business meeting need to be done quickly. The keys to finding a fast, reliable print shop are right here in this handy little guide.
1. Find a Printer that will greet you when you walk in the door
Ever made that trip to the printer and stood there for fifteen minutes constantly thinking about where you needed to be fifteen minutes ago? It is important for a Printer to acknowledge you when you walk in, in order to determine your time restraints.
2. Test out the call ahead
Call the printer ahead of time and let them know what you want to do. If they still stare at you as if they do not know who, or what you are there for when you go in, just do not even bother. Although it is good practice always to give your name on the phone.
3. Do they offer multiple services
Printing, Copies, Graphic Design, Business Cards, Letterhead and Envelopes, Posters and Banners, Brochures, Shipping, Packaging, Mailbox Rental, Rubber Stamps & Labels, Laminating & Binding, Fax Services, Notary Services, WiFi Internet Access. Do they offer all of these services? I am sure if they do, it will save you one of your most valuable assets. Time! If they do offer these services, make sure they do not make you wait in separate lines to access to all of the services. It is a headache having to go three places to get one thing done, even if it is inside the same store.
4. Are they reasonably priced
Paying too much for printing can really hit your small business right in the budget! Make sure the printer will work with you. Ask about specials and be reasonable, allowing you to find out if your business is worth it to them. Do understand, time is money and no printer can make deals on rushed projects. As some would say,
“Rome was not built in a day, Although for the right price it may have been possible!”
5. Focus on the quality of their work AND their customer service
When deciding on your printer, think back to your experience when working with them. Did they offer good customer service, did they save you time, and was the final product worth the price and time it took to get it the way you wanted? Be careful and good luck!
Small businesses are fuel to our economic growth, so your country depends on the companies you decide to do business with. Time, money and effort are all assets that small businesses must conserve to grow and thrive in today’s economic times. Think small to get big, Your attitude determines your success and persistence overcomes resistance.
Thank You for reading our blog and happy printer hunting!
