Happy customers are more likely to return to your business. While it may seem like most customers are satisfied with their service, you shouldn’t just sit content. You should be actively finding ways to make your customers happy when they leave your business.
Go the Extra Mile
Customer service is a powerful tool and should be a top priority at your business. Many customers will judge your business based on the way they were treated. If you want to ensure that your customers leave happy, then you should make an extra effort with customer service. Instead of waiting until someone asks for help, be proactive and ask them how you can be of assistance. Prioritize in person customers over phone calls or emails. Make sure they know that you are in the moment and ready to help. You can also make an extra effort by going the extra mile to solve problems for them. Don’t just settle with “I don’t know.” Always try to find the answer for them.
Often, when a customer is frustrated or upset it’s due to a misunderstanding or miscommunication. To avoid such incidents, make sure your business is properly communicating with your customers. When marketing, make sure all information is accurate and clear. Don’t leave your customers wondering or trying to piece things together. You can also keep your customers informed through direct means. The overwhelming majority of consumers prefer to interact with a business through texting. This can include updates or reminders about products or services they are expecting. Texting is usually the easiest way to reach someone and it also adds a personal touch to your communication.
An excellent way to make your customers happier is to show them some appreciation. There are many ways you can do this. If you have a smaller business, you can highlight individual customers or clients. For example, if a customer made a helpful donation to your business you can mention them on your website or in a social media post. Another way to show appreciation is to offer a rewards program. This could be a rewards card for your business or perhaps a discount for any referrals your customers give. Lastly, you can ask your customers for feedback. This helps you to know how to improve their experience and it shows that you value what they have to say.
Your customers are truly the foundation of your business. Without them, your business would have no chance to grow. Find ways to actively make your customers happy and show them just how valuable they are to you.
