Communication is key

1, stay in touch with your clients not just when you need them but talk to them regularly. Keep them in the loop about happenings in your industry and make sure to ask about theirs. Make sure to share any information or updates that may affect them.

2,  Find out more about your clients deeper than the business level, for example, ask about hobbies or plans for the weekend and share a laugh or two after all who doesn’t love a good meme?

3, Get to know their industry. When you understand the client’s industry this not only helps your client receive the best customer experience but also helps you to understand the different needs and challenges your client faces which allows you to provide tailored solutions. A good way to gain a deeper understanding of the client’s industry is through market research or creating surveys to send out to your clients. This leads me to customer feedback.

4, It’s okay to ask for feedback now and again. This is a good practice for any business whether it be through surveys, email marketing, in-person, through reviews, or holding a meeting. Use this feedback to better the client’s experience.
