Your Customers: Treat Them Well; Build Strong Relationships

By Sondra Taylor

Customer relationships are what make your business important. Your customers are fabulous. Your business would not be as profitable without them. You might be just a face on a website with a name (or a voice), if this is the type of business your run. It might be that your customers never see or hear from you. You could be based on a collection of emails. You can go further to make a relationship than an email. Go a step beyond to call them and check on a project. Make them aware that you are taking time to speak to them and that you feel they are important. A good business owner puts time and money into appreciating their customers. Your customers generate profit to pay accounts; they refer you to other customers, open up new aspects of the business, and help the business expand. You make big profits and have great success because you have loved your clients and been loyal to them.

These are two ways to build closer customer relationships.

1. Be Watchful for the Customer Attitude That Puts Your Business in the Pit. with Your Skills, Help out the Client beyond What the Job Contract States. Understand Where They Are Headed and Be Helpful. the Last Thing You Want is for Them to Look for Someone Who Can do the Project for Less Money. so Many People do Just What is Necessary. Go beyond to Care about Your Customer. Help Clients Keep Their Deadlines. It Can Help You Keep the Customer. a Customer Might Know Somebody Who Can do the Work at a Cheaper Rate, but Because They Always Hit Their Deadlines the Customer Will Continue Giving Their Work to the Business

2. Thank the Customer. Many Feel like They Hear Too Many Complaints and do Not Get Enough Appreciation
