The New Year is upon us and it’s time to reflect on things we can improve. In wanting to improve your business, one of the important things to think about is, how genuine is your connection with your customers? It’s time to stop thinking B2B or B2C and start thinking of H2H (Human to Human).
All businesses are ultimately the same. We all deal with humans. Whether we are in a B2B or B2C environment, we interact with other people. Your products and services interact with humans.
Many businesses invest a lot of time and money trying to attract new customers, but do not pay much attention to those they already have. Delighting your customers can become your competitive advantage. Competitors can copy your products, lower the price or offer similar benefits; but they will not be able to copy the experience your customers have when buying from you. Making customers feel delighted and pleasantly surprised is the responsibility of everyone, not just that of the salespeople or those at the forefront.
How many of you went into a shop and were so annoyed at the salesperson who kept chasing you around trying to sell you? I’m sure this has happened to many of you. I’m one of those people who leave the shop without buying to avoid this salesperson.
