If you are selling a service you are selling the invisible. How do you sell that? You are selling a promise of something. As the customer, we are often nervous because before we visit a new doctor, architect or use a new accountant. You are unsure if what they are going to deliver what they appear to promise. We often doesn’t know the cost before we talk with you. There is a lot of unknowns and for us, the potential customers. Even if you sell a product that has features and benefits you usually have a service component and customer experience opportunity. There are no guarantees. However we try and reduce these risks by understanding how much we can trust the service provider and what they deliver.
Service is around building relationships. It is a why of thinking like a customer to ensure you can build a great connection and meet your customers needs.
