If you’re a business owner, you understand the many roles you have to fill on a daily basis. No day is the same and if you’re not careful, you can end up spending so much time inside your business that you’re not able to look at your business from an outsider’s perspective. One area where many small businesses falter is related to customer service. Unfortunately, thanks to the internet, customer service is extremely important when it comes to the growth of your company. At AMP Business Coaching, one of the key facets of our business coaching services is a focus on helping you to put your customers first so that they feel catered to on a daily basis.
Customer Service in Your Business
Below are just a few of the reasons why you need to focus on ensuring your customers always feel appreciated:
• Customers talk – With the internet now literally at our fingertips, it’s important that you’re always serving the needs of your customers. If a customer isn’t satisfied, they can quickly leave a negative review online which can drastically impact your credibility. If you run into an issue with a customer, it’s always best to do everything in your power to resolve the problem to avoid receiving any type of negative feedback.
• Referrals are a great way to grow your business – Not only will customers talk when they’re unhappy, but they’ll also sing your praises when they’re satisfied. This is why going above and beyond with each of your customers can help you when it comes to receiving referral business down the road.
• Customer service is a part of your brand – You should think of customer service as a part of your brand and a way to differentiate yourself from your competitors. Some other businesses in your area may provide very poor customer service, which is a great way for you to quickly separate yourself from the pack and build your brand at the same time.
• Customers often pay more to companies that offer better customer service – A study from New Voice Media showed that roughly half of customers increased their purchasing behavior with a company after a positive customer service experience. This shows that customers are willing to purchase more from a company that they know and trust.
