How to Create an Exceptional Client Experience
Creating an exceptional client experience shouldn’t be a burdensome task for B2B companies. However, it does take effort from your whole team. Dedication to customer needs should be the primary objective of any organization. But great service starts before the business becomes a client. Here are a few ways to create exceptional client experiences:
The first contact with your potential client is the most important, as it defines the relationship going forward. Whether the first contact is at a trade show, a website visit, or a cold email, it is important to make a lasting, positive impression. Attentiveness is a great way to give an amazing sales experience to a potential B2B customer. Responding to their questions, calling back a lead within the first few hours of contact, and making sure you’re known as the thought leader are simple ways to leave a lasting impression.
When a potential customer becomes a client, the relationship between your business and the client should grow. To facilitate this, communication is key, and solving your client’s problems becomes a critical piece of the pie. Going the extra mile, such as extra research to solve a problem, is always appreciated. Clear, frequent, and efficient communication throughout the problem-solving phase can help demonstrate your company as dependable, savvy, and proactive.
Phone, email, and messaging services such as Slack are easy ways to quickly communicate with your clients. However, miscommunication often occurs between meetings. It is equally important to handle any miscommunication with finesse. Ignoring the problem or perpetuating the miscommunication is usually met with frustration on both sides.
Anticipating Client Needs
Anticipating what your clients expect is another way to foster exceptional client experiences. Spend time learning about the expectations your clients have for your company. Once you get to the point where you know what your clients expect, it is easier to anticipate what and when they need it.
Creating feedback surveys and tracking your clients’ happiness is a great way to discover what needs improvement. They’re the ones receiving your products and services, so they’re the best ones to tell you exactly how you’re doing. 50 percent of consumers say they often or always pay more for a better experience. So, if your clients are unhappy, they may not tell you until they are not your client anymore.
Creating an exceptional client experience can help create a solid B2B relationship. Building a process and sticking to it company-wide can be an important first step. Continually making improvements to the process will help your team grow and foster strong connections with your clients.
