In a business context, we can sometimes chase the pennies and the dollars to a fault, and this can leave us into a few traps that we’d rather we didn’t experience first hand. While a healthy balance sheet and careful accountancy is essential to give yourself the best route forward, it’s also important to understand that financial value is not the only form of value worth curating.
Sometimes, this extra side-value requires careful application of new systems to curate, or it can mean going out of your way to ensure that you secure alternative value at the cost of financial merit. For instance, the entire idea behind a starting discount is to convince someone new to use your services and check out your product, which we pay for via losing out on the immediate full sale price of our product or service, instead of gaining a large fraction of it.
But what are the measures of side value that are most worth thinking of to this degree, and how can we approximate our best approach from there? With this advice, you’ll surely start to see:
Brand recognition is also an important and valuable tool to curate, because it will help reduce the time between a customer finding out about you, or remembering you, and then making a potential purchase or using your services. This is where cohesive and reliable corporate identity management can work so well, because it gives your business a chance to carefully support their correspondence with uniformity, and to apply every productive task they produce within a branded context. This, via very little effort, can help you build the value of brand familiarity and from there loyalty.
Your support teams are a vital and extremely burden-heavy part of your wider team, and they must be respected as such. If you can give them the chance to go off-script while still providing easier and cohesive authority over how they react to each customer call, how they can manage their accounts, and what trust they can build through extra concessions, this approach can be more than worthwhile as time goes by. This is why stocking your team with trained individuals, continually managing metrics and providing them with the most sustainable working experience can be fantastic for any firm to support.
Safe & Honest
It’s also important to be seen as a safe and honest firm to do business with. This means providing secure payment portals to allow for online ordering, the immediate showcasing of your services and what you offer, what rules you operate within, and what testimonials you have to give. Brand loyalty is one thing, but trust in your systems, privacy and security can be another thing entirely that you need to convince your customers of. The more you can not only appear but back up your presence as a trustworthy firm, the faster you will grow.
With this advice, we hope you can understand that financial value is not the only form of value worth curating.
