The Business of Great Customer Service. CUSTOMER CUSTOMER "There is only one valid definition of business purpose: to create a customer. It is the customer who determines what a business is. What the business think it produces is not of first importance - especially not to the future of the business and to its success. What the customer thinks he is buying and considers value is decisive - it determines what a business is, what it produces and whether it will prosper." - Peter Drucker CUSTOMER SERVICE – Key to business success Customer service is one of the greatest keys to your business success. It can literally make or break you. This is so because your entire business, marketing, sales and profits depend on your customers. Youre in business to generate profits by selling your products and servcies to people who need and want to buy. Customers want to know how you can make their lives better or easier and/or how you can relieve them of their pain. It follows that whatever you do must be carefully designed to meet and satisfy the needs of your customers as its the foundation for a growing and profitable business. The decision you make must be based on the situation, what the customers want and how it affects your business. Treat every service situation as unique. Interact with each customer as an individual and treat him/her that way he or she wants to be treated.(continued next page) New Media Services e info@newmediaservices.com.au the Go-To company w www.newmediaservices.com.au

MARCH 2012 ISSUEJANUARY 2011 ISSUE MARCH 2012 BUSINESS NEWSLETTER JANUARY 2011 BUSINESS NEWSLETTER (continued from the previous page)….Customer Service Great marketing acquires new customers for you, but its great customer service that ensures that the customers keep coming back to you as people tend to do business with people they like and trust, and therefore, are more likely to be loyal and continue to buy from those who provide them with excellent customer service. Surveys have shown that most customers quit because of an indifferent attitude towards them from the business owner, managers and/or employees. A typical business will only hear from a handful of dissatisfied customers; most of your customers will just quietly go away and never come back. To further compound the problem, a typical dissatisfied customer will tell an average of 7 to 10 people about his problem and your bad service. This is a serious financial loss for those of you who dont know how to treat your customers right; for those who do, it represents a tremen- dous gain. In light of these, not many businesses can succeed for any length of time without the comprehensive care and diligent servicing of their customers. To a large extent, customer service has leveled the playing field for the small business owners who sell similar products as their bigger competitors. It opens up a treasure chest of opportunities.
