You only get one chance to make a good first impression and for a business this can have a huge impact. Happy customers are likely to return, but handle your first interaction poorly, and you might be saying goodbye to business. How can you ensure that you’re leaving your customers with a great lasting impression? Here are our top tips to encourage your customers to keep coming back.
It’s important to answer your customers’ queries as quickly as you can. Many people will choose a different service if they have to wait too long for a response, with many opting not to leave voicemails anymore. Ensuring that you are able to answer calls when they come through is vital to keeping customers happy.
It can be easy to forget your manners when you have a lot of things on your plate and you’re stressed out, but being courteous and pleasant is a really simple way of ensuring that your customers leave their interaction with you with a smile.
No matter how nice or timely you are, if you’re not helping your customers, you are still at risk of losing business. If you’re unable to solve a particular query, take detailed notes and pass them on to whoever can solve it. It’s also important to manage your customers expectations. If they’re asking for something that you can’t provide, it’s better to be upfront straight away, rather than disappoint them in the long run. Your customers will appreciate a direct and honest answer.
