YOU CAN’T PLEASE YOUR CUSTOMERS UNLESS YOU KNOW THEM!

Customer Service is a big part of every business and unfortunately it’s one that often gets forgotten. Every year business owners spend hundreds and thousands of dollars in advertising, marketing, getting the best packaging for their product, securing the perfect location, etc… – it’s all a part of doing business, right?  So why doesn’t it always work? Well often times they are missing a really big element – Customer Service!

2. KNOW YOUR CUSTOMER!

If we take a look at the big business successes of the past it’s not that difficult to see that the leader or person in charge of that company or business had a pretty good idea of what the end-user wanted and was then able to fill the need in a manner that made the client happy. Take Steve Jobs for example – he was able to take Apple from a dream idea to a household name with products that everyone doesn’t just want but HAS to have and right now… how? He had a knack for knowing what people wanted. Even when everyone else around him said it was crazy, impossible or a waste of time, he not only made it happen but he created a success out of it.

Now I know we all can’t be Steve Jobs and we certainly don’t have crystal ball or magic powers to see what our potential customers want but there are plenty of fundamental and basic tips to great customer service. There is a lot that you can do as a provider of a product or service to research and learn more about your customers and what they need. Below are just a few tips to help you get started!

IDENTIFY THE CUSTOMERS NEEDS 

  • Know their timing needs. 
  • Try to anticipate their needs in advance. 
  • Be able to ‘READ” their attitude. 
  • Practice skillful listening with care. 
  • Create two-way dialog.
