Good relationships with your customers are your business's bread and butter. It is a well-known fact that customers who have good experiences tell only a few people, whereas customers who have bad experiences will tell everyone they know – and then some, via social media.
Keeping a customer happy and engaged isn't always easy when you're the owner of a small business. There are so many things to think about: hiring employees, bidding for contracts, creating and following a budget, inventory, customer service, and more. Consultants look past the numbers and relate on a human-interest level by keeping a handle on public relations and your relationship with customers.
Why Public Relations is Essential
If you don't cultivate your relationships with clients, you will never be successful. Repeat business and word-of-mouth referrals are the best way to make money and will bring in more customers than the rest of your marketing efforts combined. A genius email marketing campaign will never bring you as many new customers as a happy customer who returns for their third time and tells all of their friends.
Good Consultants “Get It”
Why can consultants easily spot corrective or outreach methods and business owners can’t? It’s very simple – consultants help strengthen your customer relationships because that is their job. They have been honing their skills by working with other companies, trying and succeeding or trying and failing. Trial and error is the most common way to succeed, and consultants bring that experience to the table.
