Serving customers from the heart


June 22, 2016 | By RetailME Bureau

If you’re running a business, it’s critical to understand the consumer psyche.

The starting point is to see yourself as a buyer – ‘How would I like to be treated when I go to buy something?’ If you walk into a store and feel unwelcome, you’ll possibly never return. On the other hand, if you are greeted by friendly and helpful store executives when you enter a store, you instantly feel satisfied and are willing to spend your well earned money there. Importantly, you’ll become a loyal customer. That’s why, for any business, it’s important to make your customers feel welcome and ensure they leave satisfied.

Never attempt to change a consumer purchase decision

A critical aspect of customer service is to ensure we neither oversell nor undersell. Consumers today are educated and aware. If they wish to purchase a product, they browse online, checking models, specifications, prices and so on. That’s why our training programmes teach our store executives to first meet the exact consumer requirement before going beyond.
