In today’s world, consumers don’t just want high-quality products and services. They want customer experiences that provide them with greater value in their buying decisions. As well, they want the peace of mind in knowing that they can depend on the companies they support for their future needs. After all, it is a lot easy on customers to keep going back to the same businesses for help instead of having to locate new ones.
What can business owners do to ensure that they secure repeat business? Being dependable is certainly a huge part of the deal. And a huge part of dependability is accessibility. Are you available when your customers need you? If so, you’re doing a great job in gaining and maintaining trust. Don’t ever underestimate how important it is for your customers to access you. There are many reasons why it will help to keep them loyal.
Here are four:
Yes, there are bound to be times when you simply can’t pick up the phone. And, it’s important, during those times, to remember to return your voicemails promptly. However, most people simply prefer to speak to live voices. They feel that leaving messages will only force them to repeat themselves once they get to who they’re looking for on the phone.
Never underestimate the importance of customer service. Most consumers will openly admit changing brands because of customer service – regardless of the quality of the products a company sells. When customers call companies up, they don’t like to wait long times or speak to representatives in the wrong departments. People appreciate quick, knowledgeable, friendly service. When you’re accessible, you provide that!
Consider the fact that we live in a world where a lot of people shop from the comforts of their homes. Online shopping has made it so that consumers don’t even need to get out of their pyjamas to buy what they want. With that said, what makes you think that people have patience to deal with business owners who don’t pick up the phone? When you’re accessible, you make things easy for people. People love easy!
When customers wish to deal with you directly and you’re not available, it makes your entire brand look bad. People aren’t so ready to forgive representatives of a business that were rude with them. They refer to the brand name – not the individual person – when discussing how disappointed they are in the service. Don’t give customers reasons to give your company bad reviews. Be there for them when they need you!
