Customer service is often ignored by a lot of businesses, but without having repeat customers, we won’t survive.
The more we become online focused, the more we want human connection. This is why customer service is so crucial and shouldn’t be overlooked. A business needs to understand and focus on the customer’s journey. Connect with them, don’t try to hard sell, it simply will not work.

Today’s marketplace both online and offline are incredibly customer-driven. With so much choice around the globe in almost every industry means companies need to find a point of difference and retain the right to keep a customers’ business. Quality of your product and price is important, but equally as important for your customer is the service they receive before, during and after the sale.
“52% of consumers say they have made an additional purchase from a company after a positive customer service experience.” - Dimensional Research
In this podcast we will discuss:
“I realized over time, connection with others, getting out there and talking to different people and sharing more about my personal journey, I don't know whether it's because I'm older but I'm not worried as much about people's judgement. When I finally started talking about myself, getting personal, it made a different connection with people and for my clients. I have stronger relationships.” - Michelle Pascoe
Collaboration is actually the key to connecting
How personal do you get with your audience in order to build connection?
How did you build your business back then? And how are you building it now?
Do you target people you want as clients?
The more that we support each other the more that we will grow as business owners
