Is your Business Really Client-Centered?

Photo-Communicate5There are many factors that go into building a successful business.  However, one of the most important, yet one of the most ignored, is focusing on consistently creating client satisfaction.  Create a client-centered business and you’ll ensure that your business gets only rave reviews, while setting it up for success.

 

Are your clients’ interests at the core of your business?  If not, your business will remain at a standstill for years to come.  Many business owners have the perception that they run a client-centered business, but in reality, they have gotten into a bad habit of putting their own personal interests in front of their clients’.  Yes, it is true that you should have a personal interest and passion for your business, but your interest is not what drives sales.  Meeting your clients’ needs and delivering stellar client service is what drives sales and generates revenue.

Asking Questions is One Way to Communicate Effectively with Clients

Asking Good Questions Is Important

Asking Good Questions Is Important

How you conduct your communication with clients can create raving fans or scarce patrons, and ultimately determine whether or not you get the results you are looking for. This is just one concept to help you.

Be Willing to Ask Questions
When you’re starting a new client assignment, it’s easy to get excited and jump head first into the project, but don’t let your excitement or enthusiasm get too far ahead. Remember, your first priority is to remain conscious of effective communication and be sure that you and your client are on the same page. Effective communication will allow you to jot down the necessary details before the project begins and save you embarrassment down the line with clients. When you skip effective communication and jump the gun, you could find yourself in a situation that makes you or your business appear unprofessional and inexperienced or get wrangled in to doing work you don’t get paid for.

If you are unsure about any detail of an assignment, or fear your client may not have a full understanding, you must be willing to ask questions. Fixing misunderstandings is easiest at the beginning of an assignment, but not so easy after work has already begun. Take the time to be sure you and your client are communicating effectively with each other.

As the business owner, it’s your responsibility to think ahead and head-off any potential snags. It’s important to make the process of working with you and your business as simple as possible. Remember, your client is paying for results, not complications so be sure to always take steps to communicate effectively with your clients.

Action Step:
Be very clear from the beginning in service agreements and contracts. Set clear boundaries and detail specifically what is being provided at the set price, as well as, optional or extended services that will require additional funds. Go over the details of the contract in-person or over the phone whenever possible. Head off potential problems during the project early. If you see something that throws a red flag, discuss it with the client early on to avoid big blowups.

Being a business owner goes far beyond the books and sales. You must be a forward-thinking problem solver who is continually evolving into a better business owner and person. Essentially, you become a leader the moment you start your own business and can never relinquish the title for as long as you own your business. Throughout the life of your business, it will be a continual refinement of processes and communication; adapting your approach to suit the needs of your clients.

Entertaining Sign – What do you think of when you see it?

DriveLikeYourKidsLiveHere-SignI find this sign entertaining as I see it around in several neighborhoods.  This sign could mean many different things depending on if you have kids, if you like your kids today, how old your kids are, what your kids have done lately or even today that could have made you proud or upset you again, etc.  Not sure what you think or feel what you see this sign. I just chuckle because it can mean so many different things to each person. What do you think of when you see this sign?

Beat Average – Great TV Commercial You MUST Watch

 

Great GNC TV Commercial

Great GNC TV Commercial

I typically seldom watch commercials. I record almost everything so I can purposely skip commercials and not waste my valuable time watching them.

 

This new GNC commercial is an exception to my rule. It is fantastic and sends a great message to us all about NOT being average – beating average, well unless you really want to be average….. Not all of us want to beat average. For those of you who do, this is a fantastic commercial.

 

“Need an excuse – average has it all.”

“Average is good – No, average is average – you can beat it!!”

 

To view this entire GNC commercial, go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Relm6xljtg

The Power of Effective Leadership

Photo-Leadership2What is the difference between leading people and manipulating people? There is no right or wrong answer here, as different leaders will use different styles of leadership. Some will be successful, while others may prove to be a disastrous choice. For the best results, treat others as they would like to be treated (not everyone wants to be treated as you want to be treated), and try to never burn bridges.

Success Coaching Defined

 

We all can use a little accountability in our life.

We all can use a little accountability in our life.

Russ Alan Prince recently wrote a good article, Success Coaching Defined, in FA magazine.

I couldn’t agree more with his comment: “The coaching boom, however, is both good and bad for professionals. It’s good in that high-quality coaching is a way for them to become significantly more financially successful. It’s bad in that, with more and more people looking to provide coaching, it’s very likely that quite a number of them are not up to the job.”

As an Accountability Coach, I find so many people entering the coaching area having no real life experiences to help Advisors. They may have gone to some coach school and think they are qualified to help Advisors be even more successful – personally and professionally.

You will find that many Advisors who are accelerating their results have a coach who has experience and knows exactly how to help them.

In my opinion, I think that many of the Advisors thinking about getting a coach would like to be even more successful and accelerate the achievement of their goals; however, don’t want to do the work required to actually get the results. They have ‘like to have goals’ but are okay with where they are and the progress they are currently making. They may not like it but just don’t want to work that hard.

I also agree with Russ when he said, “The clients of coached professionals are better served.”  As the Advisor gets even more focused and productive, that translates to getting even better clients and serving them even better.
