Rodan and Fields - Customers Don't Matter -- Only Consultants
I actually love the R&F products, I can afford them, and nothing else I have ever used has ever worked as well. HOWEVER, I will NEVER buy from them again. Does that make any sense? Probably not. But, it is because of how they run their business – they do not care about customers, only consultants. I thought it meant something to be a Perks customer. Then I had a problem that could have easily been solved.
I just needed to be transferred to another consultant because of online threats of litigation against an organization of which I am a member by, not my consultant, but a consultant in her chain from whom she derives revenue. My consultant understood, and wasn't going to fight letting me go. But, the only consultants I knew were also in the same revenue chain as the consultant threatening my organization.
Did the company make anything easy for me? No. Was I valued as a customer? No. Over the phone -- the designated Perks customer line -- I was told I could find a new consultant by just searching the website. Guess what? That's an infinite loop. You don't get to an actual list of consultants. When I called back, I was told to e-mail. None of my e-mails were replied to in a timely manner. It took 3 weeks -- 3 weeks -- for me to be assigned to another consultant. I had to give up my Perks status just to be connected to her.
Do you know what I learned in every communication with the company? Customers are the least important entity in their business model. They don't care about customers until those customers become consultants. They will protect their consultants to the nth degree, and the loss of just a customer, oh well.
