It’s a well-known fact that retaining customers is far more cost-effective than working to attract new customers. Long standing customers tend to spend more money, and in the best cases become advocates for your business, helping to attract more customers. In this way, excellent service means you’re far more likely to convert customers from treating your business as a place for a one-off transaction, to being loyal brand ambassadors. Below we’ve listed some of the main benefits you will achieve by ensuring you offer your customers excellent customer service.
Beating the competition
Many companies offer competitive services, and products in similarly well laid out stores and offices, so to stand out against your competition you need to ensure you are offering your customers something different. By providing excellent customer service round the clock you’ll start to develop your customer relationships from them simply being consumers making a purchase with you, to becoming loyal buyers who return repeatedly to your business. If you are operating in a highly competitive market, but can offer your customers great service in addition to reliable products and good prices, they will come to trust your company and turn to you first when making a purchase.
Working hard year-round to provide your customers with excellent customer service, will help to maintain your business’s reputation when things go wrong, which at times they will. By ensuring you always give great customer service, the impact of bad news regarding your company – should anything unfortunate happen – will be lessened as customers remember positively their other interactions with your business.
Word of mouth
If you work in the B2B sector especially, word of mouth is likely to be the main way you win and secure new customers. Even if you work in a B2C business, you’ll still want to ensure you are leaving each and every customer that comes into contact with your business with a positive brand impression, so that every time your company is mentioned it appears attractive to new potential customers.
