Boosting customer satisfaction and loyalty

One of the best things you can do for your business is improve your customer satisfaction, as this leads to increased loyalty, more referrals, etc. Here are some tips for boosting customer satisfaction and loyalty:

Start with employee satisfaction- Start by listening to your employees and taking action based on their ongoing feedback. If employees feel satisfied with their jobs, they will do a better job, and treat customers better. The more invested the employees are in a company, the more respected and listened to they feel, the more they will believe in a product or service. It will show, and you will see results in the form of higher sales. In addition to having overall happier employees, asking for feedback helps you identify problem areas or challenges your business may be facing that you are unaware of.

Don't be worried, shocked, or upset if you end up identifying a very large number of challenges and opportunities. The idea is to not get overwhelmed, but rather prioritize the challenges and problems that exist, and create an action plan for addressing them. Look at them as opportunities to improve. With each improvement made, you open up the door for business growth. Improving employee satisfaction saves you time and money because it results in greater employee retention, less turn over, and employees more willing to work hard.

Once your employees are satisfied and loyal, it is time to work on your consumers. Survey customers and use social media to hear how they feel. Ask them what they think of your products. Ask them what they think of your services. Ask them what they would improve upon. Ask them what they like and don't like about your company as a whole. It can stink to hear what people have to say, but it can also help you address problems you may not have known existed, and as a result, create a pleased consumer base that knows you will do what it takes to make them happy.

The information of how your customers feel about your company, your employees, your products and services and other key issues that drive customer satisfaction and retention is invaluable. It is going to show you both your strengths and your weaknesses, which will give you a chance to capitalize on what you do well, and take care of, improve upon, and shore up your weaknesses. Don't be afraid to ask customers about things you know you are not doing well. You need to learn about how customers feel, and specifically what they want to see change.

Once you know, you can make an action plan to better please both your employees and your customers. The time and effort required to do so will pay off, as you will see greater customer retention, more referrals, less employee turnover, and a higher level of customer service offered.
