We all experience difficult customers, from time to time. When we only have one customer as our “one and only” customer, well, things become challenging.
It seems like we are continuously wrestling with big hairy issues and little annoying ones. In order to deliver product, service and experiential quality excellence.
Our difficult customers test both our courage as well as our critical thinking skills. After all, our mission is to retain their business and grow that business, as well.
Take heart, my friends.
Some of our most difficult customers also are the most rewarding. Because they make us grow, professionally and purposefully, in ways we often cannot imagine.
I’ve assembled this list of customer retention blogs I’ve written since the beginning of the year. You will find substantial bites and small nuggets in each post which you immediately can put into play.
