A lot of married people will know that before tying the knot, they usually go through an engagement period. While cultural differences tend to dictate what takes place during this time, the most common practice is to spend more time with each other to get to know the other person before the big day (and the lifetime commitment).
While not as romantic as courtship, you could say that businesses have their own set of ways to “engage” new and existing customers. That’s right. Your Medium-scale Pawnshop can take care of customers by keeping in mind a few things.
First of all, it’s best to meet your customers when and where it’s convenient—for them. Your outsourced call center service team, for instance, needs to go beyond the usual voice calls. While the phone is a great tool, today’s communication-driven world offers new ways of keeping in touch with clients. Live Chat, social media, and even mobile apps are just some of tools that complement the good ol’ phone. These channels give you more ways to interact with customers if you have order taking services or a reservations call center for bookings and requests.
Once you know where to reach them, why not take the time to listen to what they have to say. Better yet, talk to them and get to know what they want—from your own products or services, or about any other service.
Finally, take action. Doing something shows that you value your clients.
If all goes well—if you’re able to engage your customers—then you can look forward to a lasting relationship.
