Should your eCommerce store offer a WOW service experience to grow like Zappos?

Wow

At ROBIN we are 100% dedicated to offer our customers amazing support. It’s what we live for. It’s our vision, passion and strategy all rolled up in one. But hey, we’re a customer service software company. Our customers would expect nothing less than amazing support.

The shining customer service example in eCommerce is Zappos. Their #1 core value is to deliver ‘WOW’ through service and they have build a multi-million dollar business out of it. It’s often advocated on marketing blogs that your eCommerce store should also aspire to deliver ‘WOW’ through service to attain customer service nirvana – like Zappos did.
