It's Time To Learn Why The Customer Is Always Right

It’s a phrase you hear a lot in retail and other business sectors: the customer is always right. Sometimes, you may personally disagree with this statement, but, on the whole, it’s a statement that is correct and one you should be paying attention to as a business owner. You build your entire company and brand on what the customer will expect of the product or service that you offer. You do market research and you hold focus groups to get the opinions of the people you plan to sell to and you do this because the opinion of your customers is what will fuel your company.
When it comes to your business, the customer experience is the only thing that matters. As it’s the money your customers pay into your company, the reviews they give you and the way you manage them that’s going to make a difference in your profit and loss accounts. Building your brand and making sure you can build relationships with your customers by taking the best IMC programs around is one of the best ways to go forward. You need to be able to effectively engage with people around you, so that you can make your customers feel like you give the best experience they could possibly have. Part of that experience is being able to communicate what you offer and diversify to suit their needs.
One of the only ways companies can grow is by understanding that their customers are correct. Their reviews matter and their experience can make or break your business. If your product is of a high quality and the price is where it should be, the customer experience still matters more than anything else. The way that you ensure customer satisfaction will then influence buying behaviours, and lead to a strong business performance. All of this leads to a stronger company that people can rely on for their shopping – which is exactly what you want.
If more companies pay attention to their customers and their opinions, then they would have a longer life in the industry they sit in. Customers who are satisfied with the service they get are more loyal, spend more money and give more referrals to new customers than those who are unhappy. Have you ever sounded off to a company you have been unhappy with? You probably have – it’s the way we let a company know they’re doing something to upset us. How often do you provide good feedback? If the answer is not very often, perhaps you should start. Being able to offer a positive review for a company is as valuable as a bad review.
Once you know how to communicate to your customers you can ensure that you are delivering a better service that is consistent with their expectations. When you run a company, don’t forget what you want the company to be, but listen, adapt and change with the times as you need to. The customer is always right, especially if they will benefit your business.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
