      Ha! Thanks Doug. Let us know when you’re ready to do a hangout with us to talk customer service.

  • Hi there. This Louisiana based customer service evangelist loves that you focused on Lagniappe (it’s in my Common Sense Service Book so maybe that’s where you saw it …) anyway had to give you the phonetic spelling – lan-yap. You almost got it right but more importantly you nailed the definition of giving ‘a little something extra’ which is the ultimate customer service tip!

      Hi Teresa! Thanks for checking out our hangout. I think I have read a few of your posts on but haven’t had the pleasure of reading your book yet. I will add it to my reading list very soon. We actually heard about Lagniappe in “Hooked On Customers” by Bob Thompson and also “Integrity Service” by Ron Willingham. Now I’m wondering if they ripped it from you! Anyway, thank you for the help with the pronunciation.
