Customers are looking for a "Bid for Connection". If you fail, you likely will lose a customer. Don't Interrupt - No matter how much you understand the customers questions, do not interrupt, let the customer finish their thoughts. Plus we discuss how to answer emails. Echoing - Repeat back the customers concerns. Empathize but don't apologize. Verify Satisfaction - Make sure you have solved the problem and ask if there are any other concerns.
