One of the first things we ask our new clients is, how focused are you on your own clients’ and are you driving the best possible client experience for them?
When we delve into their client journey and focus, there are always opportunities for enhancement. Client focus is how they help their clients at every interaction and NOT how it helps their business. It involves better communication, knowing and understanding their clients preferred mode of communication and always driving continuous improvement to their journey, which they embark upon.
The benefits to you and your business by doing this are:
Happier and loyal clients
Referrals from your clients as a result of advocacy
Growth for your business
Supplier of choice for your clients
Improved brand image
Enhanced staff morale, motivation and engagement
Reduced costs of sales due to growth from your existing clients
Lower recruitment and training costs as a result of employee satisfaction and engagement
Client focus and experience is a mix of mindset, philosophy, purpose, culture and strategy. This will evolve to align your business processes with your clients’ own goals and expectations.
Many of our clients ask, how do we drive a client focused culture in our business?
