With angry but engaged, you can fix the problem. With disengaged, you have no control.

As a sales rep, you ALWAYS want controlย

Some of my personal, and my teams best clients and long term relationships have stemmed from that client being pissed off about something.ย  Its funny, that if you can showcase that you actually give a F about fixing whatever perceived issue they have, and not just say "reach out to our support team" (and dealing with 1000 shitty "ticket") responses - an angry customer can become a case study customer very quickly.ย

I mean, disengaged but happy? Sure, that sounds totally fine to me. Usually angry clients take up a ton of your time whereas if someone is just happily humming along, that's a dream client.ย

If they're angry, you actually have an opportunity to build even more credibility if you help resolve something. Not sure if you know the Lexus story but long story short they had a really early recall and instead of hiding it they went into full customer service mode and called each owner, sent mechanics to fix the issue washed the car ect and it actually turned out to be a big win because of how they handled it and people were talking about the world class service.ย 


This is all if the angry is a result from your product or service not meeting expectation- if they're just angry to be angry then fuck um!
