Excellent Service Assured

I recently had new carpets fitted in one of my shops. We open 7 days a week so preparing for the arrival of the new carpets involved me having to get up at the crack of dawn to take the old carpets up and hoover, before the carpet fitters arrival at 8.30am.

I had, in my opinion, made a good job of cleaning up the floor in readiness, however when the carpet fitters arrived they first set to with scrapers and dust pan and brush, taking off every minuscule bit of old, stuck foam carpet backing from the floor.

I hadn’t made as good a job of it as I thought!

I have used this carpet firm for the last 10 years.  I never ask anyone else for a quote when I need new shop or home carpets as I trust these guys implicitly, and the service they give is simply the best.

They are courteous, impeccably clean, hard working, they respond to enquiries quickly and efficiently, and they arrive when they say they will.  Why should I look anywhere else when I am completely satisfied not only with the product and the price, but with the overall service I get?

In Internet Marketing we need to recognise the value of these attributes.  We must always get someone else to check our products for errors and omissions; it is so easy to overlook them.  We also need to check that someone else sees our product and service the way we do.

Always be courteous to your customers, deliver when you say you will, and respond to enquiries quickly and efficiently.

If you give your customers a great service, in addition to a great product and a great price, they will remain loyal and will always come back for more.

Enjoy the journey!

  3. I really believe that we all tolerate WAY too much crap from people and companies are are to be serving us. We get used to stuff under-functioning, accept less than great service, allow things to slip, etc.

    1. Hi Rachel, thanks for visiting. I was just talking in a shop to the counter assistant about this very thing! We were saying how much more aggressive people have become and it’s often hard to challenge aggressiveness.

  5. We really do need to “put out there” what we also want to receive. Courteous service, value for our investment and appreciation for our business. These are the cornerstones of excellent service. Thanks for this thought provoking post.

  6. Completely agree Mandy,

    I can forgive suppliers making a mistake – so long as they put it right quickly.

    If I can blow my own trumpet a little here, I have had one particular customer for 30+ years so I think I must be doing something right 🙂

    1. Hi Joy, thanks for visiting. Wow, 30 years is a great achievement. I have shops offline and have been running shops locally for almost 20 years now, and I still have a lot of customers that came to me all those years ago. It works, doesn’t it.

      Enjoy the journey!
