Many internet marketers are concerned about providing superior customer care in relation to their online business and this is a valid concern as building lasting relationships with customers is an integral part of doing business on the internet.
It is important to recognize that not everyone is going to follow you or hop on board with you. You probably wouldn’t want them to anyway. Most people on the internet are quite savvy so if it’s not “their” niche they aren’t going to get use from it; at the same time your time and resources could be spent focusing on people who are looking for and will benefit from that information you provide.
Understand Buying Behavior: It’s important to understand buying triggers and purchasing behavior. People tend to buy from those they know, have established confidence in, and like. You can achieve all of these things with your customers without ever meeting them face to face. It just takes some time, email messages with a slightly personal tone, followed by trusting actions. Most people can connect with these, and will feel they know you, even if they have never heard your voice or seen more than a picture of you on an internet web page on their computer screen.
Valuable Information: In order to keep your customers happy and coming back to you– to be your raving fans– you must provide a consistent supply of valuable information relative to your niche in the form of e-books, articles and reports as well as video and audio sessions. It depends largely on what your customer base needs.
Consistent Communication: Encourage your website visitors and customers to come back often by offering a newsletter or free product for them if they sign up for further information from you. Offering quality resources makes it easier for even the most reluctant person to divulge their contact information to you thus enabling you to connect with them on a regular basis. You can also use this means to determine what your customer needs from you so that you can fill the need.
Taking care of your prospects and customers is essential to keeping them engaged in your sales funnel. They’ll appreciate the effort you put in to the service you are providing when they see something of good or even great quality offered on a consistent basis. It’s what will keep them loyal to you, as well as have them recommend your site to their friends.
