It has been an exciting time for our customer service and customer experience podcast, Crack the Customer Code. We recently crossed the 200 episode threshold, hit #4 in the business category on Overcast.fm, and doubled our listenership in the last month.
We’ve had some fantastic discussions and amazing guests, and I thought this would be a great time to look back at few of the lessons from the first 200 episodes.
Here are some tweetable, customer service lessons from just a few of the amazing podcast guests we’ve had on Crack the Customer Code.
