Quick and Easy Tip: Don't give up after the first answer

You may know the exact cause and answer to a customer's question but you can't guarantee that the answer will actually solve the problem or if the customer followed your directions correctly. In most categories, the process of solving a problem requires trying multiple troubleshooting answers to (1) diagnose the problem (2) solve the problem. If a customer gets upset when the first answer didn't work, let the customer know that you needed to try that first answer in order to eliminate possible causes to the problem and move on to the next answer.

Bonus Tip: Don't forget to mark your answers as answers so customers can give you a 5-star after you've answered their question.

JustAmazing Experience

Please join us in congratulating this week's JustAmazing Experience recipient: Dr. B (nekovet)! A customer came to JustAnswer because she was worried about vomiting issues with, LadyBug, her rat terrier. Dr. B picked up the question and asked all the necessary questions in one go. Once the customer gave more information, Dr. B promptly gave a detailed answer and then followed up with the customer a few days later. At the end of the exchange, the customer had this to say about her experience:

"Dr. B was awesome. Her candor and opinion helped me probably more than it helped Ladybug. I really appreciate the time and help."

Congrats, Dr. B!
