Establishing solid customer relationships appears fairly simple on the surface, but these connections require a lot of your time and effort. Developing and retaining these ties can sometimes feel demanding and even overwhelming, but the rewards can be satisfying. Personal connections, whether established over weeks, months or years, could potentially lead to a positive word-of-mouth, influx in sales and more connections…not to mention job security and satisfaction.
The relationships you create with your customers are the most important facet of your business. Here are some tips to help you strengthen your business:
Apply the Golden Rule: Treat others the way you want to be treated. Most parents poured this into our heads as kids…honestly it works. This tip is very common and easily overlooked. But remember: you like to be treated with respect, so treat your clients with respect. It works.
Customers are not a number: First impressions are big! Remembering a client’s name and something about them after that discussion is even bigger. Small details lead to lasting and loyal customers.
Stay honest: Don’t stretch the truth about your services or product. It will hinder your relationship and reputation. Be honest, customers will appreciate this and help create trust in the relationship.
Be conscious of your body language: People can tell how you feel towards them without words being expressed. Smiling and keeping eye contact helps ensure the customer you genuinely want to help them.
Have fun: No one likes a fuddy-duddy. Stay light-hearted and avoid being rude towards clients. Example, making fun of yourself helps the client become comfortable and willing to work with you.
