I love Zappos. The way that they are redefining customer service is raising the bar and positively impacting how sell things and how people treat their customers. I recently wrote a Squidoo lens on Zappos’ story. You can see it here.
In a slideshare presentation on Zappos, they offered a book outlining their culture to anyone who asked by emailing Tony Hsieh, the CEO of Zappos and the driver behind their customer driven culture. I sent Tony an email on Tuesday. My email was responded to on Wednesday and the culture book arrived already today. In the email, Tony invited me to take a tour of Zappos the next time I come to Vegas. They even have a shuttle from the airport!
Zappos continues to overdeliver and delight their customers. Read the email below and strive to treat your customers as well as Zappos does.
