21 Tips to Make Clients Fall in Love with Your Business (2019)

If only there was a sure-fire way to make clients love your business….

*Cue cheesy infomercial voice* But wait, you CAN make people fall in love with your business!

The best part? You don’t need to spend a fortune to keep your clients happy and coming back for more…

Take 5 minutes out of your day to learn some of my frugal and effective techniques to ensure client satisfaction. I guarantee it will be the most influential 5 minutes you spend on your business today. Remember: Happy Clients = more $$$

1. Be Authentic

Above all else ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS be authentic. Your individual brand authenticity can be the subtle edge over your competitor. Authentic branding differentiates your small business as a local, family-owned business and is the easiest way to add value to your brand. Even if it means showing off your not so flattering side…

2. Be Attentive to Business Inquiries

Answering questions, emails, and returning calls or voicemails in a timely manner goes a long way in making your client feel valued. Whether it is the initial impression of your business or a follow up question it is essential to make your potential customer base and existing customers feel important for your business to succeed. Word of mouth is one of the easiest ways to bring in new business and maintaining a high customer retention.

3. Implement a Customer Loyalty Reward Program

Small business loyalty programs are, by nature, designed to bring clients back to your door. Whether you offer a business loyalty card, develop a loyalty app, or keep track of loyalty points electronically, you as an owner are telling your clients that you value their business and look forward to continuing a business relationship with them.

4. Create a Company Referral Program

Along the same lines as the company loyalty program, a strong referral program can greatly boost sales and overall client satisfaction. It’s a win-win. Your client is happy with the special discount or refund, and you, in turn, build your client base and make additional sales! They key here is to ensure you have a strong referral program so you aren’t sinking your business by offering to steep of a discount or giving away refunds before products/services from new clients are guaranteed.

5. Offer Essential, Unique, Products or Services

As a fellow small business owner I know we strive to stay ahead of the curve in all aspects of our business; therefore, we need to offer our clients valuable, state-of-the-art products and services. By offering something that no one else currently has available, you are solidifying your presence as an authority in your market and establishing brand loyalty even if your competitors begin to offer what you currently do.

6. Take the Time to Write a Handwritten Note

Write A Handwritten Note Business Practices

Even though it only takes about 5 minutes, you would not believe the number of small business owners who do not know how to write a professional thank you note. Use our business thank you note template to customize a personal letter for each of your clients. Yes, you can type and print a note or send an email, but there is much greater value in a handwritten letter that comes from the heart. It not only reminds your client that you appreciate their business, but it also helps the client establish a personal connection with your business.

7. Offer FREE Business Advice or Services

Who doesn’t love free things? After all, this is part for the reason why you’re here reading my tips! Hear me out, I am NOT recommending that you give away the whole pie for free, just a big enough piece that makes your client want to come back for more. Think of ways you can help your client improve on a particular area of their business. An easy way of doing this is by creating email blasts. These e-blasts can provide links to valuable articles, show trends in the market, offer a free trial period for a new service; really the possibilities are endless. Wanna know another way to easily reach your client’s? Write brilliant blog posts *wink wink*

8. Create Personalized, Useful Downloadable Content

This goes back to the “something for nothing” principle. If you have knowledge or expertise in your business area, spread it to your clients! Offering content that your client finds useful will keep them coming back to your business for more.

9. Remember Important Milestones

Foster a strong business relationship by remembering the little things: birthdays, kids achievements, business anniversaries, etc. Sending over a card on the holidays keeps your business at the forefront of your client’s mind. Bonus points if the card includes your family in matching onesies.

10. Share Fun, Interesting, on Brand Social Posts

Brand Social Posts Dallas Cowboys

Social media is your time to show off your personality as a small business owner. Not everything needs to be strictly business related. Passionate about a cause? Ready for the weekend? Rooting for your favorite team? Let your audience know what you’re like outside of business hours. #WeDemBoyz

11. Ask for Feedback

What’s better than hearing what you are doing right (or what you can improve on) directly from your clients? Most people are happy to share their customer experience, but if you find that you aren’t getting enough responses, offer a small incentive like a discount on a future product or service.

Customer Feedback San Antonio

Kudos if you already have feedback built into your follow up process. Customer satisfaction helps to give your business a competitive advantage over your competition while also allowing you to build long-lasting customer relationships that could last for many years to come.

12. Develop and Host Your Own Business Website

Even if you aren’t an online retailer, you still need an online business presence. Nowadays companies like Wix and Squarespace make it simple to build your own website with a set of given templates. The downside: you’re pretty limited on what you’re able to do and EVERYONE is offered the same templates.

Host Your Own Business Website San Antonio 2019

Your business could potentially have the same format as a more *cough* exposing business. Don’t want to run into this problem? We’re happy to help build you a stunning business website and offer the same top of the line hosting that we use ourselves.

13. Confirm that Your Website is Up to Date at All Times

There is nothing worse for client retention than having an out of date website. As a small business owner, you should periodically check the accuracy and performance of your website to ensure that the data is correct and everything is working correctly. Sometimes website updates break links or new features go a little wonky so it is essential that you routinely skim through each webpage to look for anything that sticks out. 

Website Maintenance WordPress San Antonio

Don’t forget to check for small (but critical) business information like hours, phone number, location, or employees. These sections can change often and all too many times are left unedited for years at a time.

14. Foster Networking Opportunities

A great way to guarantee client satisfaction is to hook them up with similar minded small business owners. This costs you absolutely nothing, aids the growth of your client’s business, fosters partnerships, and builds your local economy. By networking with small business owners, you can bounce ideas off of each other, collaborate on projects, or even express your frustrations over similar issues and learn how others solved them. Looking for a great networking opportunity where you can find other entrepreneurs that are all gathered together to help one another accomplish their marketing goals? Check out our exclusive Facebook group called the Bulbaritos that is geared towards small business owners like yourself!

15. Build a Genuine Relationship with Your Client Outside of Your Working Relationship

Yes, you want a professional relationship with your client, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be friends too! Start small: offer to grab a drink or coffee and chat about business. Eventually, the conversation is bound to swing to personal and family life and you can see another side of your client that you really like. Not an instant bromance? Don’t worry, not every client will turn into a friend. At least you made an effort to bond with them outside of regular business hours.

16. Give Clients Your Undivided Attention

Small business is chaotic, your clients understand this (after all they are in the same boat as you). As a business owner, you need to find a way to tune out family life, prior commitments, and even other clients when you are dealing with a particular client. This doesn’t mean ignoring emails or dodging your wife’s request to put your dirty laundry IN the basket and not on the floor NEXT to the laundry basket (just sayin’), it just means while a client is in front of you don’t let distractions and stressors get to you. For that hour your client should feel like they are the only thing that matters. The dirty laundry can wait…for now.

17. Be Honest

It’s inevitable. At some point in your business, you’re going to screw up. How you handle your mistakes is what will set you apart. Own up to what you did wrong, offer a sincere apology, and find a way to re-establish or repair the relationship you have with your client. This isn’t a ground-breaking concept, but it can go a long way in building brand trust and keeping your clients loyal to your business.

18. Set Expectations, Then Defy Them

You should always aim to offer the best product, fastest service, or newest innovation in your business, but take it a step further by exceeding your client’s expectations. Whether this means delivering a product ahead of schedule, coming up under budget for a project, or offering a more convenient option for your client they will be greatly appreciative and sure to mention their experience to anyone that asks. Don’t leave it up to chance though, if you know they love your business ask for a review!

19. Stay Hungry

Small business owners NEED to stay hungry. Keep striving for innovative solutions to problems, improved products, or more efficient services. By keeping things fresh in your business, it will help alleviate small business burnout and keep your client awaiting the next new development.

20. Make Contacting You Easy

Whether your clients want to contact you for good or bad reasons, you need to make sure that your business contact information is easy to find. On top of having an easy to navigate contact page on your website, you contact information should be available on local and national directories online such as bing or Yellowpages. Not only does this make your info easy to find, it can also boost your website authority.

21. Be Nice!

Last but not least, simply be nice! Even if your client is being an overly demanding jerk, you still need to be a friendly face. When you’re having a bad day don’t take it out on your clients; find a new outlet to relieve stress. Practice yoga, read a book, unplug for a few hours, sleep, whatever will pull you off of the edge. In case you find adorable French Bulldog puppies to be relaxing like I do, check out my Bulbasaur’s official Instagram for a cuteness overload.

Implement these tips on how to make clients love your business and you will be building strong business relationships and creating happy clients in no time!

6 Types of Customers and How to Convert Them to Buyers (Quick & Easy)

Do you want to be able to turn everyone who walks into your store into a loyal customer?

Of course, you do!

Use our quick and easy tips to increase your sales, decrease the stress of the selling process, and ensure greater customer satisfaction.

Pumped to see the sales flood in? Great. Let’s learn about the 6 different types of customers, what they want, how to keep them happy, and ultimately how to convert them into a loyal buyer.

Converting Customers Who Never Find What They Are Looking For 6 Types of Customers

1. How to Convert a Customer Who NEVER Finds what they’re Looking for

David walks into your store looking for the perfect pair of tennis shoes. He doesn’t know the exact style he wants, but he definitely knows what he doesn’t want. After a few minutes of browsing the inventory on the shelves, he leaves frustrated because you didn’t have the EXACT pair of shoes he was looking for. Even though he doesn’t know exactly what he’s looking for himself.

How to deal with picky customers:

David is obviously a picky customer; he has a general idea of what he wants, and if he doesn’t immediately find it he may leave your store and never return. Picky customers are looking for sympathy. They have been looking for the particular item they want for quite some time with no success and they want to feel like you are on their side. Say things like “Aww man did you strike out again?” or “Today I’m making it my mission to find you the perfect pair of tennis shoes.” Not only does this make them feel like they are no longer alone, it opens up an avenue for conversation for you to find out more about them and what they are looking for.

Close the sale and convert them into a loyal customer:

So how do you give the picky customer what they want if you don’t have the exact thing that they’re looking for? First and foremost, be patient and empathetic. Making a picky customer feel like you’re on their side will go a long way in not only earning their trust but also in closing the sale. In addition to this, you need to be knowledgeable about your products. Be prepared to offer them a similar item from your stock, call your other stores to see if they have the item in stock, or check and see if you are able to order their item for them. Even if you aren’t able to immediately find what the customer is looking for, let them know that you appreciate their input and will look into keeping more of their particular item in stock.

Converting Customer Who Always Has A Coupon 6 Types of Customers

2. How to Convert a Customer Who ALWAYS has a Coupon

Susan comes to the checkout line with a cart full of household items. After the cashier rings up everything, she proceeds to hand off a massive stack of coupons, some of which are expired or not applicable to her items. She puts back a few pieces but refuses to back down no matter how many times the cashier tells her that the store cannot honor her expired coupons. Susan continues to argue and demand a manager as the checkout line backs up. Frustrated, the manager honors the coupon just so he can assist the next customers in line and Susan leaves with a grin knowing she got a good deal.

How to deal with annoying customers:

Susan wants a good deal and she isn’t afraid to step on some toes to get it. Although the annoying customer can get under our skin for obvious reasons, they do have a few positive sides. For one, they are in your store and they genuinely want to make a purchase. The coupon wielding customer can also take older, out of date stock off your hands in an effort to score the best deal possible. Annoying or not, they are still at your store to spend their hard earned money and you need to respect their time even if they don’t respect yours. Don’t BS them, but say genuine, positive comments like, “Man, I should take you shopping with me!” or “Wow, I’m impressed with how much you are getting for your money’s worth!” This should lighten the tension a bit and they may even try and share some couponing tips with you!

Close the sale and convert them into a loyal customer:

Although it may be hard at times, remaining patient and cordial with an annoying customer is key. Think about it; they are used to pushing enough buttons so that the store owner will eventually cave, so if she sees you getting visibly frustrated then she thinks she is winning. Ultimately, they are just looking to get the best deal possible, so give it to them! Use this opportunity to sign them up for your app or newsletter. Tell her how you offer members-only discounts, exclusive coupons, or a reward program just for signing up and you are sure to have a loyal customer in no time!

Converting Customer Who Is Just Looking 6 Types of Customers

3. How to Convert a Customer Who “Is Just Looking”

Stephanie wanders into your boutique because she thought the window displays were “totes adorbs.” You greet her as she walks through the door and ask her if she needs anything to which she replies “I’m just looking.” Stephanie ambles around for a bit, posts about her trip on the ‘gram, and even tries on a couple summer dresses, but ultimately leave empty-handed.

How to deal with the wandering customer:

Unfortunately, this is the most common type of customer. How many times have you yourself walked into a store just because you were bored, had time to kill, or just felt like window shopping? This type of customer could also be keeping you at arm’s length because they don’t want to be pressured into buying something they weren’t planning on originally buying. So how do you get them to buy? This type of customer wants a balance between attentiveness and space. Without being creepy, keep an eye on them and offer periodic suggestions if they seem interested in anything in particular. Offer suggestions like “Did you know that dress is currently part of our summer promotion?” or “I see you have a few things in your hand, can I start you a fitting room?”

Close the sale and convert them into a loyal customer:

This customer is going to be your toughest challenge to convert since they may not be looking to buy anything. Although they make up the smallest portion of sales, DO NOT IGNORE THEM. Just because they don’t want to buy now doesn’t mean that they won’t want to buy in the future. See if they’re interested in signing up for your newsletter to stay up to date or tell them to follow your business Instagram where you post photos of your adorable French Bulldog. They are guaranteed to remember your awesome customer service skills, especially if you have a super cute mascot to back you up.

Converting Customer Who Has 3 Kids And Doesnt Have Time for You 6 Types of Customers

4. How to Convert a Customer Who has 3 Kids and Doesn’t Have Time for You

You notice Joanna and her kids as soon as they enter your restaurant. She is visibly flustered as the children are asking for everything in the dessert display case and one of them has run off and is attempting to climb on a table. She searches the menu for a few minutes before giving up and just heading home and deciding to reheat yesterday’s leftovers.

How to deal with distracted customers:

Although a parent with unruly kids may not be your ideal client, treat them right and you are guaranteed to have a loyal customer (who will brag about their experience to everyone in their parent group). What the shopper who has their kids in tow really wants is for someone to be both patient and understanding. Kids are going to be kids; they may try to climb places they shouldn’t, scream their lungs out, or play with inventory; however, you need to remember to stay positive and only intervene if their actions could cause harm to themselves or another customer. If you need to step in, say things like “Sorry, you can’t climb on that.” or “Be careful, I don’t want you to get hurt.”

Close the sale and convert them into a loyal customer:

Earning the business of a busy parent is definitely going to be a challenge so you need to step your game up. Do you have kids of your own? Offer up a story where your kids were less than ideal tagalongs. This will help put the stressed parent at ease and help build rapport. Better yet, show the kids a magic trick, have a kiddie corner set up, or keep a handful of candy and (with parents permission) offer it to the little ones. By paying attention to the rugrats you are taking a major stressor off of the parent and they will definitely favor your business over your competitor’s.

Converting Customers Who Are On A Mission 6 Types of Customers

5. How to Convert a Customer Who is on a Mission

Jeff hits the sales lot looking for one thing only: the 2018 Dodge Charger with a 5.6L Hemi in candy apple red. After walking through one of the rows, a salesman approaches Jeff and asks if there is anything he can help him find. Jeff tells the salesman exactly what he is looking for, but the salesman is not sure if they have that particular model out on the lot so he asks Jeff to wait a minute while he checks the store inventory. Jeff decides he would rather take his business elsewhere.

How to deal with the focused customer:

The mission-driven customer may not like shopping, doesn’t have a lot of time to waste, or just wants to get what they need and get out of dodge. They are looking for short and direct responses so make sure not to overwhelm them with a bunch of options. Be knowledgeable about your inventory and store so you can quickly and easily get them what they are looking for.

Close the sale and convert them into a loyal customer:

So how do you keep them coming back if they only want one thing? Offer them more ways to save time! Can they order your product online and pick it up in store? Could you ship directly to their house? Better yet, if they are going to be wanting your products in certain increments (weekly, monthly, etc) then set them up with auto delivery or make sure and have what they are wanting up at the front of the store so that when they walk in all you need to do is hand them what they want and they are on their way. Not only did you make the customer feel special, they are also going to remember how easy it is to shop at your store compared to others.

Converting Customers With Both Time And Money 6 Types of Customers

6. How to Convert a Customer with both Time AND Money to Spend

Charles and Harriet waltz in to your store and ask for your opinion on the best gift for their nephew who just turned 8 today. You guide them to the latest set of Avengers action figures and they each pick one to give little Johnny. At checkout, you mention a few Avengers themed costumes and accessories that other children have loved and they add on an Iron Man costume and Thor hammer.

How to deal with your ideal customer:

Count your blessings because this couple represents your ideal customer. That being said, TREAT THEM LIKE ROYALTY. All of your customers should receive excellent customer service, but you really need to amp it up for your ideal customer. This type of customer is going to be your greatest source of word of mouth referrals so you want to make sure and keep them happy. They already want to buy from your business, so it’s your job to keep it that way.

Close the sale and convert them into a loyal customer:

Like other types of customers, your ideal clients want to feel valued and have a personal connection to your store. While they’re browsing your store, find something to establish some common ground on. Say things like, “Your purse is so cute! Where’d you get it?” or “I noticed you’re a Jurassic Park fan, what do you think of the new Jurassic World series?” Considering this is your ideal customer, you not only want to keep them happy, but you also want to find more people like them. Ask for their opinions, send them surveys, and implement their feedback. They already like your store so keep them coming back with a loyalty program, exclusive coupons, or members only eblasts.

Made it all the way through the article? Good!

I know that it seems like a really dumb thing to remind you to do on your own wedding day, right? The reason we always tell our brides to enjoy their wedding day is because it literally “flies by” on the day of your wedding. Remind yourself that you prepared for the day to the best of your abilities and on that beautiful day that you say “I Do” don’t let anything keep you from enjoying it!

3. Eat a Snack Before You Put Your Dress On

3. Eat a Snack Before You Put Your Dress On

We don’t want any fainting around here! Sometimes weddings get so busy that couples don’t even have time to eat their own dinner, so it’s important to carry and have a snack ahead of time just in case you don’t have time to eat throughout the day. You’ll probably be hungry after the wedding is all over too. You can check with the caterer to pack you an extra meal for later so you have something to take back with you to the hotel room.

Really! I’ll keep us on schedule as much as possible, but your job is to enjoy and have a blast during your wedding day. If that means things run a little late because you’re having a great time, then so be it! We’re gonna be there as long as you are so there is no need to stress about timing.

You’re going to be busy and on your feet all day; you don’t want to be dehydrated. Make sure that you try and carry around a water bottle or two in order to stay hydrated.

6. Review Your Dress Bustle

6. Review Your Dress Bustle

Believe it or not this is one of the biggest “time-sucks” I’ve ever seen at weddings! It’s probably been awhile since you picked up your dress and tried out the bustle. Some dress shops give instructions for the bustle and some don’t. Figuring out a bustle on the day of a wedding can take up to 30 minutes, so try it out beforehand and make sure you know how it works and that a bridesmaid or family member does too.

7. Hold Hands During Your Ceremony

7. Hold Hands During Your Ceremony

This is probably a weird tip right? Sometimes people forget to remind you to focus on the little things, but it looks super awkward during your ceremony photos if you are standing 5 feet apart and not touching somehow. We encourage (and look for) the little giggles, small glances, and romance during the ceremony. Holding hands make pictures look much more intimate.

Try to keep your flowers in water for as long as possible. If you do photos beforehand, take them, and then put them back into the water before the ceremony. Nothing kills bouquets faster than holding them for ages before the ceremony and walking down the aisle with wilted flowers.

All too often couples rush through the little details that we love to see: zipping up the dress, walking down the aisle, cutting the cake, etc. The faster you go, the less opportunities we have to take the perfect shot. Slow down and enjoy all the precious moments of your big day.
