SUCCESS IS A STATE OF MIND

In Uncategorized on February 19, 2009 at 8:25 pm

If you truly want to be successful, start thinking of yourself as successful.

The only thing that stands between you and what you want from life,
is simply the will to try it and the faith to believe that it is possible.

There is nothing on earth that you can’t have,
once you mentally accept the fact that you can have it.

The feeling must come first.
If you actually feel successful, if you have a deep inner conviction
that you’ll always have all that you need, it will be so.

Whatever your mind can conceive and believe in,
your mind can help you achieve.

Customer Love

Excerpted from Customer Love

The 10 phrases from my friends at Walk the Talk are an illuminating reminder of how uncomplicated it is to make customers feel loved. People don’t care how much you know, (or what you sell, or what type of service you provide) until they know how much you care!

The 10 most important words: “I apologize for our mistake. Let me make it right.” When something goes wrong, most people just want to be heard and acknowledged. So listen, apologize, then ask what you can do to make it right.

The 9 most important words: “Thank you for your business. Please come back again.”  Repeat customers cost less than new customers and are often more loyal.

The 8 most important words: “I’m not sure, but I will find out.”
It’s ok if you don’t know the answer; it’s not ok to make the customer keep searching for it. That’s your job.

The 7 most important words: “What else can I do for you?”
Be prepared to go the extra mile, there is less competition there.

The 6 most important words: “What is most convenient for you?”
Your customers will be pleasantly surprised when you ask what’s convenient for them.

The 5 most important words: “How may I serve you?”
This question reinforces your role in the relationship. Play that role the best you can.

The 4 most important words: “How did we do?”
Feedback is critical. Your customers have a unique perspective and they appreciate being asked.

The 3 most important words: “Glad you’re here!”
Customers who feel welcome spend more time, more money, and are more likely to return.

The 2 most important words: “Thank you.”
Basic manners…but how often do you get thanked when you’re the customer?

The MOST important word: “Yes.”
Become a yes person.
