Going the Distance for Your Online Business Clients

Question: Can there ever be too much of a good thing?

A lot of people believe there can, while others think to the contrary. If you are talking about having too much money, there are lots of stories, both fiction and non-fiction, that depict the dangers of too much wealth. But if you think about world peace or cures for terrible diseases, then there isn’t much argument about the merits of too much of a good thing. In the end, it’s subjective, but as a business professional, these are points to consider.

Then there’s always the nagging question; is there such a thing as too much great customer service? There is real debate between seasoned business pros about whether client services can go to a logical extreme or not. Some argue that too much client service can actually damage a business-to-client relationship by almost smothering a client with more services than they need. But many others believe that in this day and age, really good service is hard enough to come by. Therefore, there is no such thing as too much good client service—too much may not even be enough.

When it comes to online business, this is more or less the case. Because business transactions move at such lightning-fast speeds, it is necessary to keep your own at top-notch performance. Not only do you have to be on your game to deliver the best services as are humanly possible, but your business mechanisms must also be on top. This ensures that every client need is met—and met on time—so they receive what they’ve paid for. There is no such thing as too much client service here, and you can only make sure your business is always strong.

In online business, you can run into all sorts of problems that cause calamity with clients. But there are often quick troubleshooting techniques you can do yourself as problems arise. Clients may get into trouble with order processes or accessing information on your web site—or related ones—due to dead links. When this happens, you have to fix things quick. Getting into your Meta data and fixing theMetatags is necessary, as are all the links in your link building schema. You likely have links to your web site all over the Net, using a variety of on-page techniques on your web site and off-page techniques on others. Locating the exact deficient links and fixing them as soon as possible ensures that clients can quickly execute online transactions and keeps business flowing for you. It also shows that you can rectify problems quickly and with a keen interest in satisfying clients.

If you are serious about keeping up client interest in your business, you should regularly overhaul your ads. This sounds a bit trivial in terms of client services, but it’s not; ad agencies will tell you that regular turnover in ad campaigns keeps the public interested in your products and shows that you haven’t lost energy for the work that you do. In the past, this meant doing regular radio spots or shelling out for a new commercial. But in online business, it’s a lot simpler. Doing something as easy as plugging in new competitive keywords and/or uploading new graphics to your ads helps keep the audience following your work. People are obviously very in tune with online and visual media today, and are consequently seeking new ways to see what is available to them in the marketplace. With this in mind and with these techniques at hand, you stand to benefit from some very simple tasks, maintaining the momentum of client interest. Client interest combined with strong client services keeps people coming back to your business.

There are the usual duties of online business client services, too: getting new media to help with business processes, taking online comments, having speedy delivery services, etc. But in the end, you know instinctually that there is always something to be done to keep clients satisfied. If you were them, you’d know that a worker who works tirelessly to please you runs a real business to be proud of.
