13 . Know more about us

13 A : Our team and expertise.

OUR TEAM

As the business adage goes “bet on the jockey, not the horse.” When it comes to delivering any service, the team of the people behind it matters more than anything else. it matters more that the advanced technology one has or how well equipped the facility is.  

Clients pay lot of attention to the person leading the show and team he/she has to support . After all, the outcome of the service depends upon what the leader and team are capable of delivering.

Think like this- if you have decided to buy a service, there are no quantifiable  metrics to measure how does a system work. But there is certain qualitative information on the people behind the business.

  1. List you key team members beside the leader. You should avoid mentioning the name of everyone working for you, but focus on the key team members who are popular and are responsible for the success of your business or company.
  2. Focus on elaborating the roles and responsibilities which can be relate to the clients needs rather than the ranks and designations which are often not understood by everyone.
  3. Tell a story about your key members, how they have worked together and have created something as valuable as your practice/business.

13 B: Why should you buy our services?

why should you by from us?

The most important reason why a client buys your service is , to get their most important problem solved..

To effectively promote your services, you must know what what those pressing problem are and  How well you address can solve them. Cultivate the habit of listening carefully to your target audiences’ expressed opinions and feelings—particularly as they relate to your services.

Now having understood the way a client thinks, try to  impress upon the client , that not only do you understand their problems, but you have capabilities and the intention to solve them. Tell them how far do you go to help your clients to solve his problems.

13 C : What’s unique about us ?

Don’t be a commodity that customers can find anywhere. Position yourself as something unique, and show people you are unique, don’t just tell them. Deliver value to your target customers, and you won’t be one of the choices, you’ll be the only choice.

what is unique about us ?

Ask a hundred business owners in a category what their points of distinction are. You’ll hear adjectives like high quality, affordable, fast, reliable, convenient or experienced.

A business that is well-positioned does one or two things excellent, and is known as the best in a specific part of their industry.

An unremarkable business tries to do everything under the sun, and does not excel in any of their offerings.

Think about what sets you apart. Refine what it is you do that no one else or very few other people can do. How does that relate to the customers that you want to attract? If you had just these ideal customers, would you be able to sustain your business?

Play to your strengths. Downplay or marginalize your weaknesses. Ask yourself if that the work that you want to be doing in a few years time. If you can answer affirmative to all of these, you have the beginnings of a unique value proposition.

13 D : Our facility and technology ?

technology and facility

Some of the questions that a client is usually concerned.

  1. What is the location of the facility, in context to accessibility.
  2. Modern amenities included accessibility for people with disability
  3. Year of establishment of facility/business.
  4. if the services entails use of modern technology/equipment, a brief description about technology/equipment will be helpful.
  5. Emphasize on the value the new technology will bring to the client.

13 E : What exactly are our services ?

What exactly are our services ?

Each and every organisation faces  the same issue:

How to develop a profitable service model?

The usual course the companies follow  is to  diversify their services and becoming an “All things to all people” firm.

The problem with this approach is that too many offerings devalue your services. The increased number of services decreases efficiency, increases operating costs and makes it nearly impossible to create a consistent client experience for a client.

Step 1: Define your client profile.
Define the client profiles of the types of people you want to serve.  This clarifies whom you want to serve, which enables you to build a service model customized for those clients.

Step 2: Define your clients’ needs.
Next, answer the following question: “What are the needs of my client profiles?” Write out a comprehensive list of all the services each of your client profiles will need in order for you to solve their particular challenges and meet their goals. This should be a comprehensive list, including those services that your firm may not be able or willing to offer.

Step 3: Determine the services you will offer.
The final step is to answer the following question: “What services do I want to offer?” Go through your list and circle the services your firm will offer. You should focus on the services you do well. Then, identify strategic partners or other resources that will be able to provide solutions for the remaining, uncircled services. At the end of this exercise, you will have defined the service model for each of your client profiles.
From here, you will want to develop the client experience for each of your service models.

13 F : What is the itinerary of the service package ?

What you do might be a part of daily routine, but it is often a once in  life time experience for your client.

Walk through your client with the itinerary of the service package , so that they are aware of what will be offered to them and they can  plan their day  accordingly. You can divide the itinerary in daily or hourly break up schedule.

13 G : How can you avail our services ?

Worst that can happen in any business is to have a willing customer, who could not find a way to buy your services. Often the reason is difficult and complex procedure , a client has to follow to avail the services.

You need to figure out how to make your  complex  or complicated ” How to order ? ” task , simple and easy to understand and follow.

Here are 3 tips you can apply in almost any situation to simplify the task.

  1.  Translate it a simple language.
  2.  Break it into small segments.
  3. Create a visual map.

13 H: What we will provide?

It always helps if you can let your clients know what they do not have to worry about. it helps the client to focus on other more important things .

13 I : What you have to bring or ( not bring) ?

It is common to see patients showing up without required accessories, documents, records or equipment , which you expect them to have. enlist those clearly to help client remember that.

what is our story simple solutions

You know that storytelling is an art. 

It is the stories which  bring people together and inspire them to act and respond.

 

It’s also a process worth mastering for both your business and your customers. 

Consumer doesn’t decide to buy based on what you’re selling, but rather why you’re selling it. 

Storytelling helps you communicate that “why” in a creative, engaging way. 

Plus,  storytelling is more fun.
