Get What You Paid For

Consumer advocate Ron Burley describes the reasons the state of customer service is in such disrepair, and the basic gist on how consumers can get what they paid for when things go wrong.

  • Figure out the material benefit you’re seeking. If there’s none, get on with your life.
  • Ask yourself if your time is really worth the material benefit you’re seeking, and valuate your free time hourly wage more than your working wage.
  • on’t scream, threaten, or write a letter, instead…
  • Go in and execute a cold, logical plan that will
  • Convince the company that it will cost more to ignore you then to pay attention to you.

As he points out in his book, most companies DO get things right most of the time, but when they don’t, proactive consumers can take measures to get what they deserve.
