How to end a conversation

When communicating with customers, clients, or prospects, finding the right way to end an email and break off a conversation is just as critical as a proper opening. In fact, closing an interaction in a professional, polite, and respectful manner can actually transform even what may have started as an unpleasant conversation into a positive customer service experience and leave a customer with a good final impression. 

Basic tips for ending conversations with customers

  • Use one or several most common conversation-ending phrases that are relevant to the topic of the interaction (thanking a customer, restating your apology, informing of the next steps, etc.).
  • Choose the right vocabulary, tone, and style that is best appropriate to your audience. 
  • Adjust your closing statements to fit different support channels. Phone and email conversations typically require a more formal language, while live chat and social media interactions are usually more casual.
  • Avoid using the same closing phrase at the end of each interaction as it might sound too generic and robotic – personalize your message whenever possible.
  • End on a high note by asking a customer if there’s anything else you could help with or encouraging them to get in touch again in the future.
  • Make sure your closing statement is polite, friendly, and leaves an overall positive impression.
