Customer service consultants are individuals who provide businesses and organizations advice regarding how to maintain and improve customer service to clients. These consultants often communicate and interact with customers and clients to provide information on products and services, as well as handle complaints and other issues. Customer care consultants process customer orders, record customer information, and process billing and payments.
Customer service consultants usually work in an office environment during a normal workweek, and spend some of their workday consulting with customers via email, phone or online chat. These individuals also handle customer concerns and problems, and are adept at identifying opportunities to sell additional products and services to customers. Customer service consultants also are responsible for selling new products and services to customers, and attempt to provide positive features and benefits of these goods.
Customer service consultants should possess excellent communication, interpersonal and marketing skills, and be able to work well with upper management, co-workers and customers. Depending on the industry, customer service consultants can expect to make up to $55,000 per year in the US, and job growth is predicted to dip 2% by 2028."
