What do customers really want?
Let’s talk about what customers want, because really, without meeting those demands, it’s easy for a business to scare away customers. However, when businesses know what their customers desire, they can make sure they’re meeting those needs straight on.
When it comes down to it, what customers want can be broken down into a few simple answers. They want quality products with a great price tag. They also desire to work with a company that cares about them and offers excellent service. In addition, they desire convenience. It looks so simple when you break it into three sentences. However, as we all know, it takes a little more time to create a business that can meet these needs.
Quality products at a great price tag
As a business you need to make money, so how can you do this? We won’t tell you how to create quality, because we believe you are already doing that. As far as pricing goes, make sure you’re staying competitive with market trends and that your products are priced as such. You can also offer discounts periodically to help draw in new customers and retain your current ones.
A caring company that offers great service
Customers want to feel like they matter to the company they work with. This requires extra effort. You have to show customers that you truly value them. You can do this by offering friendly, reliable, and consistent customer service. You can provide more than one avenue for them to get a hold of you. You can also use a loyalty program to show your loyal customers that you appreciate them and want to retain their business. You may even want to try a few extra things. For example, the popular pet food company, Chewy, goes above and beyond if they hear that a customer’s pet has passed away. They’ll often send a card and flowers to the customer.
People are busy and technology has made a lot of things easier, so people have come to desire and expect convenience. Customers want an easy-to-navigate website. They want to be able to get answers to questions quickly and they want problems solved with speediness. A modern website with a FAQ page and a chat option can help make things go smoothly for customers. You can also provide more than one avenue for customers to get a hold of you so that it’s convenient for them.
When it comes down to it, customers only really desire a few things: quality, fair pricing, convenience, to be appreciated, and for a company to offer great service. These things are the keys to success as a B2C company.
