How Complaints Can Build Your Small Business

by Tom Egelhoff

tomproheadshotMost of us don’t want to hear or have to deal with complaints.

However, only about 4% of your customers will actually take the time to go to your place of business and complain.

The other 96% just go somewhere else and you never know why.

As much as you hate it, make it easy for customers to complain.

Follow-up after the sale and make sure they are completely satisfied. If they do have a complaint, thank them for bringing it to your attention.

Correct the problem as soon as possible. If the resolution takes some time keep them informed during the process.

Good customers become good customers because they know you are going to take care of them no matter what.

They will return and bring their friends and that builds business. Aren’t you glad I brought this to your attention?
