Customers buy because they’re depressed or because they’re happy or maybe because they just want something different. The most successful shop is the one that makes customers feel good about doing business with them. If you’re looking for logic, a retail business is not the place to find it. Today’s customers don’t buy things because they need them. They buy things because they crave them.
One of Australia’s leading retailing experts, Debra Templar just hates bad customer service and stupid business practices. So… she’s on a mission to change them – one slideshow, presentation, book, or training session at a time: "I don't just want to improve how we do business for the customer’s sake but also that we, as business owners, sell more stuff, make lots more profit, and love our businesses back to life!“ E: email@example.comMobile: 0417 532383Skype: debra.templar www.thetemplargroup.com.au www.twitter.com/DebraTemplar www.linkedin.com/DebraTemplar Pic Credits: http://www.istockphoto.com
