The Essentials of Healthy Relationships and Client Service
In any business there is a lot of competition to keep the attention of clients. Providing excellent work in your craft just isn't going to cut it. Social and networking skills are a must and you have to have a stern discernment in business. Your clients are your best referral. So, you want to be sure whatever is getting around about you is positive. These 10 simple tips will keep both your business and your client happy.
- Stay Open. Your client either comes to you after a bad experience with a previous company or their looking to try something new. Evaluate your tasks and make sure you make enough time for them. It is reassuring to the client when they know you are available.
- Never exaggerate your promises. You never want to get caught in a situation where you promise so much and do not deliver it all. You will lose majority of the trust you worked so hard to earn from your client.
- Give free consultations. When your client calls to ask you for advice or a suggestion and the conversation happens to carry over longer than you expected, you don't have to be such a businessman and bill them for it. Take the satisfaction that they called you for advice and be glad that you could help. With a light-hearted attitude as such your client won't feel reluctant to call you for help.
