Have you ever been secret-shopped by your competitors? Have you secret shopped them?
Each scenario is looking for the edge and insight into how the phones are answered, the intake/inquiry process, pricing, staffing availability, etc?
Maybe the real action should be, have you ever secret shopped YOUR own agency?
We want to think our process is the best, our company, and our people and, for the most part, they are. We would like to think that our staff is using all the training provided to them, they are following our policies and procedures, they can answer the phone and professionally address callers concerns and questions succinctly and appropriately. Are we comfortable that anyone in our organization can answer the phone and do a great job of delivering, messaging, and representing the brand, the culture?
We assume they are doing this, after all we are getting new clients and business right? But could it be better? Are the processes a best-in-class experience? Is it better than the competition or are we all pretty much operating the same? How can we make it better, consistent, and appropriate?
Taking your brand to the next level whether it’s a new revenue goal, new hour levels, hiring processes, or other distinctive, growth goals is hard work. It takes effort and it takes buy in from your staff to make it happen. It takes leadership and it takes learning. Reaching new goals and levels means breaking the status quo and trying new ways, ideas, tools, and products. But with diligence, intention, and vision, it can be done and with amazing results, rewards and benefits for the company, employees, and clients.
