A successful sale depends on allowing the customers to convince themselves.

Customer service matters a lot especially in times when the economic is down. And as the Australian economy becomes tough, some businesses try to contain costs by cutting corners on customer service quality. This is exactly the wrong thing to do, because customer service quality matters now more than ever.

Excellent customer service is simply essential. When people purchase a certain product or service during an economic downturn they are extremely conscious of the hard-earned money that they spend. Customers want more attention, more appreciation and more recognition when making their purchases with you, not less.

Of course, your customers want to get maximum value for the money they spend for the money they pay you. They want firmer guarantees that their purchase was the right thing to do. In good times, a single bad purchase can be quickly overlooked or forgotten. On the other hand in tough times, every single penny they spend is scrutinised.

When money is tight, a lot of our customers experience a sense of lower self-esteem. When they get good service from your business, they feel good about your business. And when they feel good about you and your customer service quality, they purchase.
