Zappos CEO, Tony Hsieh, Explains the Keys to Superior Customer Experience on The CEO TV Show with Robert Reiss
Zappos CEO, Tony Hsieh, explains the keys to superior customer experience on The CEO TV Show with Robert Reiss and how it is “all about the customer.” Hsieh also relates how many companies misplace their focus, identifies the most important marketing and branding tool, and gives his thoughts on the “social media.” Later in the interview on the CEO TV Show, Hsieh talks about other things that contribute to successful businesses and their growth.
"We're more interested in 'hi-touch' instead of 'hi-tech'," Hsieh says, "We find the telephone is an overlooked branding tool. Superior customer experience takes time, so we're not in a hurry to get off the phone with a customer or prospect; it is our gateway to building our brand, and growing our business."
When it comes to innovation, Hsieh quotes Darwin: "It isn't the fastest, or strongest, or smartest who survive change, but the most adaptable. It's the same with business. So we have to always be thinking of how to adapt our business, systems, and model to stay in business. If we have an employee with a good idea who is passionate about it, we let them run with it because we never know if it will be a breakthrough."
Reiss asks Hsieh about his thoughts on "social media": Hsieh responds, "I hate that term. In fact, if anyone uses it in my presence, they owe me $1!"
