Better Online Communication Makes Organization Sense
Many companies are now doing the bulk or even almost all their business online and foregoing the "Brick and Mortar" local store. It is not hard to understand why that trend has happened. For one thing, the price tag on setting up such a business is relatively inexpensive and simple. There is no need to pay for the overhead of a physical building. Likewise, the expense of maintaining a Net site is minimal. Furthermore, the Internet supplies a convenient and efficient way of marketing products. As more and more people are spending time on the net, the market of online customers continues to develop.

But when businesses move from face-to-face customers to anonymous online customers, we have a loss of personal interconnection and trust. All the online spamming and rip-off hasn't helped the subject at all. That has eroded the trust in E-commerce and the reliability of many companies. Just how are you gaining and maintaining customer trust? What are you doing as an online vendor to communicate to your clients?

In an online world, business just doesn't stop after normal office hours and on weekends. What are you doing to answer your customer's questions? In this article are a few things that you can do to enhance communication with your customers:

1 ) Give a Frequently Asked Queries (FAQ) page and online product support information. This kind of is a fantastic way of answering basic questions that may otherwise flood your support email. For example, our voice-changing product, MorphVOX, has a FAQ on the normal issues that customers may come across. All of us also have provided specified online documentation on subject areas that users may want to explore more. This kind of takes care of around 95% of the questions people may have.

At Shouting Bee, we try to answer our customer questions within one business day. More often, we'll answer questions within an hour of obtaining the email. I assume that we have gained many loyal customers because of our extreme efforts to meet needs in a timely manner.

3. Provide a forums or forum for customers to voice their opinions, add comments, and interact with one another. Remember that folks are interpersonal creatures and like to be heard. This also helps to build up a residential area of users that are stimulated and have a say in the products and services that you provide.

4. Write a personal email with each customer. Have you followed up on customers after they have made a purchase of your products or services? This is essential, not only from the perspective to getting feedback how to improve your lines, but more importantly, keeping the trusting, long-term romantic relationship with your customer. Mail them an email within 3-4 weeks of the first purchase. In this way their experience of your products and services is fresh in their mind. Remember, a customer who is ignored is a customer who is lost.

Spending time and effort on better communication with your customers can pay off. Your company will rise and fall not on the customers you gain, but on the customers that you may lose. Loyal customers will be the ones giving you the best customer feedback. They also supply you with the most wealthy, organic, word-of-mouth marketing. Bear in mind that every happy customer is a testament of your company's success.
