Businesses are looking for ways to grow their brand, gain new clientele, and get a competitive edge on “the other guys”.
However, sometimes it’s more advantageous to slow things down and look at the process from within. Is there something the company is doing on its end that isn’t delivering on the expectation of quality that a customer has?
Quality is everything in business. It’s what separates one company as an industry-leader and builds customer loyalty within the marketplace.
Here are several reasons why quality products are still of vital importance in today’s corporate world. Consider these in your own business, as well as the businesses you hire.
1. Builds Trust in the B2C Relationship
Nothing is more important to a company than its clients. Without them, the business wouldn’t gain a profit or be able to build a brand.
As such, it’s important to aim at growing the business to consumer (B2C) relationship between the two.
Quality plays such a heavy role in that trust-building process. It shows the consumer that the company is a business of its word. It isn’t just saying that it has quality products or services to get you to purchase it, it genuinely cares about your well-being.
As soon as a customer finds a company that produces high-quality service, they won’t jump ship easily. They’ll want to further their relationship with the business in hopes of receiving that quality product every time they need it.
This builds what is referred to as customer loyalty with the company’s brand identity.
The B2C relationship, when done right, is a beautiful balance. The company receives a permanent client and the customer receives the highest quality product for their needs.
2. Leads to Customer Satisfaction
Customer satisfaction should be the top priority for any company in terms of providing service to their client base.
If the client feels as if they’re getting ripped off or that the company isn’t holding up its end of the deal, it can lead to them running to competitors for a higher level of service.
Contrary to what most people think, price doesn’t play such a significant role in the client’s purchase for them to lower their expectations of service.
No customer in the world will pay the lower price for a service and expect a lower quality of the product. Their expectations are that a company has lower prices for the same level of service, as it should be.
One of the best ways to avoid this nightmare scenario for a client is for them to ask the company several questions prior to signing the dotted line.
3. Drives the Company’s Marketing Efforts
A company that focuses more on its marketing campaigns than the service of its current clients is a company that won’t last very long.
While it’s true that businesses need to be active in growing their clientele, taking care of current clients is the best way to grow their marketing efforts. If the quality is there, clients will make sure that the business is getting out there.
For example, say there’s a car shop that opens up and focuses on delivering fast and efficient service for its customers.
As long as the auto shop delivers on that promise, its clients will recommend it to all their family members and friends. Not only that, but they’ll also go online to write things such as online reviews, recommend the business on social media, etc.
Word of mouth and online marketing will grow organically for businesses that focus on offering quality over all else. Your honesty and efficiency will not go overlooked to your clients.
4. Cost-Efficiency for the Business
You might think that the customer is the one that gets burned when a product isn’t as high-quality as it claims to be. While that’s true in some instances, the party that’s affected the most in the business.
If the quality isn’t there, then companies will pay the price in the long run. The consequences could result in overproduction, throwing away defective products, redoing a service, or even facing a lawsuit in some cases.
Companies are held accountable for the quality of their products/services now more than ever before.
If they try to sell a product in the marketplace that’s low quality, they’ll pay the price in more ways than one.
5. Strengthens the Return on Investment
This is of vital importance to the marketplace. How much return on investment (ROI) is the customer receiving for the product they paid for?
Products with poor quality won’t contain much ROI. They’ll age poorly and leave the customer in a situation where they need to spend more money in the future.
However, high quality will offer a return on investment so substantial that the customer is getting as much bang for their buck as possible.
The modern customer is smart. They know the importance of finding the most ROI possible. In fact, they’ll gladly pay a higher price for a product or service they know is going to deliver more return than any other product in the market.
