"How Your Small Business Can Profit From Your Unhappy Customers"
"As small business owners it is easy to find ourselves obsessing about customer satisfaction and positive brand awareness. After all, the opinions that customers form about our products and services can significantly impact sales. We hear from experts (and tell ourselves) that these good vibes are all the more crucial now that businesses from all walks of life are increasingly being tied to and reliant upon the Internet 2.0 to drive consumer interest, traffic, and conversions. For this reason, when we are faced with unhappy customers, it can be even harder not to give in to a knee-jerk, internal wince and either rush to make things better or defend our stance… and our name.
