Impressing Your Customers Is Easy With 3 Guaranteed Tactics
Customer satisfaction isn't one single act, but a group of actions that work together to make their experience a pleasant and satisfying experience. You've probably eaten at a restaurant where the food was wonderful, but the service slow and unprofessional. Somebody was doing a good job, but your overall experience wasn't up to par. There are three areas of service that work together to impress your customers. Provide good service in these three areas, and they'll be back... time and time again.
1. Instant Response
Letís face the facts... people just donít like to wait. When they walk out the door, they want to have the product at their fingertips. Hey, they may have taken weeks to decide on the purchase, but once the decision has been made, they want it NOW.
The best way to make customers happy is to make the product available at the point of sale, but not all businesses are able to do that. Internet marketers obviously cannot provide immediate service, but can be sure to keep delivery time to an absolute minimum.
2. Make Buying Simple
Keep the buying process as simple as possible. Customers are just like you, they hate paperwork. To an online customer, clicking on 20 different screens translates as paperwork. Itís annoying, time consuming, and a turn off.
Use the ďeasy as 1, 2, 3Ē idea as a selling point in your advertising campaign. Busy and tired customers take notice, and youíll see results!
3. Give Customers Personal Attention
Good listeners are hard to come buy. The world is full of people trying to sell us something, or trying to persuade us to their viewpoint. You want to make an impact? Learn to listen to your customers.
Make it easy to ask questions. Yeah, yeah, I know. Thatís time consuming and you donít have time to spare. But listen, youíll find that a lot of questions are repeated over and over again. Create a frequently asked question form, and youíll be able to answer a lot of consumer questions without sacrificing as much of your time.
