He describes how he feels when a previous customer calls after months or years of no contact. He reveals if he has a warranty and how word-of-mouth marketing and face-to-face contact are a large part of his business. Ed expands on why it is important to pick the right customer and set the right expectations. He explains their warranty, but how the company’s goals overrides it. Mikey asks if one customer can affect a reputation and both Kyle and Ed give examples of bad customers and how people who only look at the bad reviews are not ideal customers. Ed shares valuable lessons and insights he learned by answering support tickets for his company for two years. Mikey informs us why the company he works is elevating his and his co-workers positions and what the company’s core value.
