I don’t even know where to start my rant. I would normally do this as a business tip, but I’m not feeling that right now. I do want to say though I love supporting others in their business when I can.
That being said. I hate feeling like I’m begging to give you my business. When I do give you my business I expect the same courtesy and business etiquette you give others, regardless of our personal relationship. Now I completely understand completions and delays. Still, that’s when communication comes into play.
I don’t care what race you are when it comes to business. Even with the economic situation today, that’s a non factor. I do enjoy visiting and using local businesses as much as possible. Even when I travel, my best friend will tell you, I enjoy hitting the local places, I even have a few favorite places I like to hit every time.
When I visit your business or use your service, I expect a certain level of service for me to return and/or recommend you to others. When I post my business review, it’s always based on that specific visit or service. Good or bad it’ll always be professional. That’s the way I like to receive my service.
Great service, I’ll send recommendations your way and more and likely use you again. Poor service I won’t ever recommend you or use you again.
Business Tip: Treat all your customers the same and professional. Be prompt and use communication as much as possible. If you are unable to serve a customer, tell them. Good business etiquette results in more business. Poor business etiquette results in less business.
