To build a winning brand as well as an effective marketing strategy to increase sales, you must know what your customers want. How is your company going to successfully stand out from the crowd if you cannot fulfill your customers wants and needs better than your competitors? How are you going to develop an effective marketing message about what your company stands for if you do not totally understand for what your customer is really searching? The answer is you cannot. You cannot build a successful brand or marketing campaign if you are guessing and making assumptions about your customers’ desires.

The following is a list of what customers expect from your company:

1)    Customers want someone to help them. People are afraid of making purchasing mistakes. Educate your prospects and customers to help them make knowledgeable decisions. Show them you have their best interest at heart.

2)     Customers want someone with whom they feel comfortable. People will do business with someone who has taken the time to build a relationship with them, who cares about them as an individual, and sincerely demonstrates they want to improve their life.

3)     Customers want choices.

4)    Customers want immediate availability.

5)    Customers want ease of purchase. People want to have fun spending money on a new purchase. Frustrations and hassles must be removed from the purchasing process.

6)    Customers want transparency. People want easy access to…pricing, product or service information, contracts or sales invoices, service information, availability, and warranties. They want to know what to expect. They want information that is clear, immediately available, and easy to understand.

7)    Customers want their lives to be made easier.

8)    Customers do not want any risk. People want assurances the company is reputable and will be around to service their needs in the future.

9)    Customers want clear lines of communication. When there is a question or problem, people want quick and easy access to good information. And when they want help they want it available immediately.

10)    Customers want performance. People want companies that do what they promise.

11)    Customers want value.  Most people want it all including the lowest price; even when a customer is willing to pay more for better quality, they still want the best value.

Determine what your customers really want, deliver it, and you will not only be building repeat revenue, you will be building a loyal customer who will send you pre-sold prospects for free. It doesn’t get any better than that!
