Here are some easy to implement Relationship Marketing tips that will help you grow your business:
Listen to your customers and Respond to their needs – Give Them What They Want.
- This can be accomplished by having direct conversations or by visiting forums and discussion groups. Bottom line, do some research to learn more about the needs and wants of your target market.
- Look at complaints as an opportunity to improve upon your service and/or product. Ask your customers for feedback and then act on them. Learn from your customers and remember, there’s always room for improvements.
- Make it a habit to over-deliver. Go the extra mile to provide great value and great service. WOW your customers every time. This will result in a happy and satisfied customer and loads of referrals.
- Return phone calls and answer emails from your customers promptly. A quick and friendly response could easily turn an interested prospect into a paying customer.
- Always be courteous, friendly and helpful; even to the most unruly customer. You never know what kind of day they may be having or what they may be going through. As hard as this may be at times, your kindness may very well turn a doubtful spender into a lifetime customer or better yet, make their day.
- Be Authentic and Genuine. Show by example that you truly care about your customers.
There are plenty of businesses out there that care more about the money and less about the customer that if you practiced these relationship marketing strategies you could easily overcome your competition.
