The simplest way to make your customers feel important and appreciated is to pay attention to everybody you interact with, regardless of how “significant” communication may be. Tell them they’re valued and irreplaceable. For instance, you may give them a genuine compliment or a small gift by giving them a promo code or discount, and remember to always say thank you. Putting your customer’s ego with a little bit of effort can go a long way in how they feel about your company.

YES is a very strong and powerful word. It’s the green light that brings you to the gate. It’s a time-honored marketing strategy to get individuals to say yes to little stuff before going to win.
