Customer service, everyone say's their's is great

Customer service, everyone say's their's is great
while a large percentage fail miserably.

Customer service is probably the most important
part of any online business, but many are dropping
the ball.

This past week (not by design) I encountered just
how great a lot of customer service problems are

My first dealing was after I made a product purchase
and needed customer support for the product. After four
request's for support with no answer I gave up.

Now it could be that my email never got to the customer
support due to filters. I only know how the person
needing support feels.

Another web site was offering a service (45.00 per month)
I thought I might need for my web sites so this time I
sent an email to customer support asking about the quality
of their customer support and elapsed time for a reply.

Three day's later I received a reply and the tone of the
reply was, why are you bothering us when you are not a
customer. I emailed another question and never received
a reply at all.

I located this same service at another web site (only the
name was different) so I tried again. After two day's I
received my answer to their customer support implying, why
don't you signup and find out. Now I receive autoresponder
messages every couple of day's pushing their service.

Is this what customer service on the web is coming to?
What ever happened to (the customer is always right?)

I realize that the web sites that are doing very well are
very busy handling a lot of daily chores, however customer
service needs to be at the very top of their list if they
want to continue to be very busy.

I know some sites still have excellent customer service,
three of those are, Host4Profit, Graham Hamer of Profit-Plan
and Terry Dean NetBreak Throughs. I have received excellent
customer service at these web sites.

Now I know there are a lot more with excellent customer
service, but I also know that an awful lot of the top sites
are failing miserably.

Customer support is the one thing that will make or break
a great web site with great products faster than you can
say scat.
