Even if your business is completely new, the way that you market yourself and provide the value of your business to your customers is vital. Unless customers can see the reason they should partner with you, they could to turn to a different company for their needs.
When it comes to construction, whether you’re a plant hire company or a contractor, the way that you market yourself is one of the most important elements of your business. Clients will always have certain expectations when it comes to what they expect a company to be able to do for them, so the value that you can add is what will reel in more customers to your business.
If you’re wondering how to start adding value to your services, what you should really be asking yourself is: “Why should a customer choose my company when they could go elsewhere?”
Because you can offer more.
Think about the quality of the services that your offering. If it’s a simple transaction with no benefits or a deal that offers no more than a base value – such as money for a service – then it’s likely that your potential customers can go elsewhere and find the same transaction for a smaller price.
Pay more attention to what your client is really asking for when they contact you, and if it’s something you don’t typically offer as a package deal, try and make a customised deal for them which fits as many of their needs as possible. The smaller details are often the most important ones – these small details are what make return customers. Specific delivery dates and times, for example. Or extra help unloading materials.
Always deliver your services on time, whenever your customer asks you to. If you’re going to be late, ensure that you take the time to let your client know, rather than leaving them guessing. This is particularly important if you’re delivering to a construction site or somewhere similar; late delivery without a reason makes you seem unreliable.
Reap the benefits of customer service that exceeds expectations
When you offer the type of customer service that exceeds the expectations of your customers, you can start building a rapport with your existing customers. The more customers that see the value of your services, the more likely those customers are to spread the word about your amazing services.
There are many ways you can add more value to the services that you offer. Even by adding more communication between your company and your customer, you can add value. Things like customer reward systems and tailored package deals also work wonders in almost any industry.
By adding more value to the products and services you offer your customers, you can quickly achieve a competitive edge over other companies in the same industry as your own.
Without obvious value to your services, customers are likely to look elsewhere for the same service than go with your company. Make your services stand out.
