Client satisfaction is the foundation of any business. It’s what makes your business either flourish or crumble. Showing your clients that you appreciate working with them and are happy to help again in the future gives them the feeling of being respected and valued. With Thanksgiving around the corner, the holidays always seem to liven the moods of everyone around us. It’s crucial, though, as a business to always give the same gratitude throughout the year as you do during the holiday season.
Customer appreciation goes far beyond just working with them. Follow up with your clients and ask how business has been doing. You can always ask if there’s anything you can do to help, but try not to come across as a salesperson and try to show that you genuinely just want to help their business succeed. Not only does this demonstrate that you genuinely care, but it also indicates that you are willing to help them improve their business.
Everyone wants to be important, and the same holds true for your clients. Be sure to treat each of them like the VIP they are, no matter how “big” they are in comparison to your other clients. Having a team that considers their business important, no matter the demographics or profit margins can make a world of difference when clients are deciding if they want to stick with you or see if the grass is greener elsewhere. Along these same lines, meaningful experiences must be prioritized to maintain good client relations.
During the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, you’re probably swamped buying gifts for your friends and family. Consider also doing something for your clients. Whether it’s as simple as a handwritten card, something custom, or somewhere in between, a gift during the season of giving will testify to your appreciation of them and show that you were thinking of them during such a busy time.
