I am, of course, a big fan of the Glance blog when it comes to customer service advice. But far be it from me to think that we are the only ones out there.
Below are five absolutely fantastic, “can’t miss” customer service blogs that you should check out immediately if you haven’t already subscribed to them. They all share pieces that will provide guidance and give you actionable steps to continually improve your customer service initiatives and programs.
1. Salesforce.com Customer Service and Desk.com blogs
Is it cheating to start off with a two for one deal? While the Salesforce.com Customer Service and Desk.com blogs are run by different arms of Salesforce.com, they are both very informative and worth bookmarking.
From AppExchange apps to eBooks to thought leadership pieces, the Salesforce.com Customer Service has it all. Desk.com provides easy-to-read pieces that nonetheless manage to convey a lot of information in just a few short paragraphs.
2. CX Journey
The name says it all: CX Journey focuses on all aspects of the never-ending customer journey. The blog is run by the vastly knowledgable, very personable Annette Franz. She’s a writer, an innovator, and a force to be reckoned with. In addition to reading her blog on a regular basis, I recommend you follow her on Twitter for more articles, tips, and customer service knowledge.

Shep Hyken is another amazing customer service expert, with years of experience and wisdom at his beck and call. Shep Hyken’s Customer Service Blog provides regular updates including thought leadership pieces, insightful guest posts, and recommendations of great articles from other blogs. Shep is also a fantastic person to follow on Twitter.
