Michael Wilcox's curator insight, March 2, 2014 9:29 PM

The value and service of client base is paramount to business success yet too often considered as a cost centre rather than the profit centre it can be. Social media increases the reach of both good and bad customer services and experience - in the long run, it pays to take care of current clients.

What is this all about?

 

Virtual teamworking, working together while apart . Most of us do it in some form or other, but not all of us take the time or energy to make sure that we do it in the most effective or efficient way.

 

My mission as a virtual teamworking consultant is to help teams, individuals and organizations to make the most of this way of working together.

 

In this topic I'm collecting new material from the web that is relevant for virtual team members and virtual team leaders: hints, tips, good practices, and some philosophical stuff from time to time as well. I'm using this myself in the books and articles I'm writing, and in the courses that I am developing and delivering. I'm happy to share this: I strongly believe that knowledge - like love - can be multiplied by sharing.

Daniel Watson's curator insight, April 18, 2014 7:15 AM


Many business owners are actually afraid to ask for referrals, recommendations and testimonials from their customers, yet referrals are the lifeblood of successful businesses, and every business owner needs to overcome their fear and make referrals happen.


To build up the courage to ask for referrals is never easy for those business owners lacking confidence in themselves or their products or services, but there are ways such people can  get referrals happening, without actually having to directly ask for them.


This excellent article suggests that the key to getting referrals is to know how, when, and where to ask, but for those who can't build up the necessary level of courage it offers five tips on how to get referrals without having to actually ask for them.

Angela Heath's curator insight, April 18, 2014 6:36 PM

Referrals and repeat business can be up to 75 percent of your business.  Learn how to get referrals even if you are shy.

3 Ways To Keep Your Best Customers

3 Ways To Keep Your Best Customers | Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

You've got three ways to keep your best customers on board. Here's how to manage each.

In my last column, we discussed three types of customers, categorized by the type and strength of the attachment they have to your company. The biggest category, the “brain” customers, are the most analytical folks, and the ones you need to pay the most attention to.

What you need to do is simple. Accomplishing it is not. You need to have a conversation with your ‘brain’ customers that will address their concerns. Then you need to provide them with the “strokes,” or incentives, that will convince them to stay.

This is tricky. These customers don’t want to feel as if you’ve convinced them to do a certain thing. They want to make their own decisions. So your ‘conversation’ has to be conducted passively rather than actively. It’s not as if you can simply send someone a coupon in the mail. If you’re in an industry where it’s relatively easy to make comparisons between brands, and where customers don’t have strong attachments, your job just got a lot harder.

There are three large buckets of benefits that you can manage to try to reach and convince these customers. I call them:

1. Where’s the beef?

To borrow from Clay Christensen, the question here is how well does the product or service do its job? You’ll be judged on two metrics: the price/value equation (is it worth it?) and the cost of alternative solutions (where else can I find it?). You should do whatever you can, as quickly and as often as possible, to bolster and improve the customer’s perceptions in these two areas.

2. Where’s the heat?

The more “heat” or, more accurately, the more friction that is built into your systems and processes, the more likely that there will be direct and negative customer reactions. Anything that takes too much time, requires repetition, or seems to serve only your interests is a risk to your business. Customers buy for their reasons, not ours. Radio Shack has a pretty strong and flexible automatic return policy, but if you want a cash refund, you need to give them your phone number. That’s good for them, because it helps prevent internal fraud. But for a lot of customers, it seems like gross overreaching and defeats the whole salutary basis of the general policy. The customer doesn’t work for us.

Sometimes, businesses don’t even really understand the “job” that the customer wants done. Inadvertently, they make things harder or more expensive than they need to be. Customer loyalty punch cards are a well-intentioned retention device, but they were often more frustrating than rewarding to customers. How many half-punched cards can we jam in our wallets? Encouraging customers to consolidate their spending with you and return often is the holy grail, but only if the process is as painless as possible.

3. Who’s your Mama?

At the end of the day, everything in business is about relationships. The greater the connection and relationship that you can build with each and every customer, the longer you’ll keep them. Save me time or money, or make me more productive, and it’s going to take a very substantial and persuasive argument to make me walk away. Nine times out of 10, price alone won’t do it. The impression of “belonging”; being a coveted or top-tier customer; or receiving special perks can all improve your connection with the customer.

The best customers are those that “never come up for air” to look at competitors. That’s because you’ve satisfied their past needs and their present requirements, and you’ve anticipated their future desires.

Your brand is everything your clients (and others) experience when interacting with you. It's true - as a small business, you may not have a large budget for branding, but you do have a lot of control over the experience you offer, which can make or break your brand.
