Savvy Secret Tip of the Week
How have you amazed your customers lately? How have you demonstrated you provide capability or products that the customer believes they cannot get the same anywhere else? How have you given your customers a sense of empowerment or made their life or work easier because of what you did for them? How have you made your customers thrilled and excited to be doing business with you? It is one thing to profess these things and the "Real Thing" to actually do it. You know you are accomplishing this when you get unsolicited feedback from your customers. When they are letting you know how much they value you in response to your company simply doing what it stated it would do, you are proving you are "the real thing." Best of all, they are sharing their delight with everyone else because of how you blew them away with what you did. To learn more about taking your customer relations to an engaging level, read Secrets #18 (Personal Touch) and #21 (The WOW Factor) in my book, 50 Marketing Secrets. To order the book, CLICK HERE!
