I’m back with another tip for Tuesday!
Today’s tip is brought to you by a rather frustrating customer service experience I’m having, which is further impacted by social media.
The ILN normally gives a small gift to our delegates when they’re attending a conference, as a memento of the city that they’re visiting (we like to give them the warm fuzzies about our group!). This morning, I’m attempting to order this memento for our next conference, and ran into the snag that they only allow you to order 15 of them.
It happens, so it’s not a big deal.
But here’s where it gets frustrating. I first try to submit my request for assistance via their website. And I get an error telling me that the "page cannot be found." Okay…so did my request go through or not? I’m not sure.
I next try to call them, but when I choose the option for customer service, I get an answering machine telling me that no one can help me right now. They’re in New York, and it’s the middle of the work day, so what’s that about?
