“In order for the business to thrive, we had to exceed our customer’s expectations, not merely meet them.” — Brian Buffini

One of the many lessons Brian Buffini learned working for his family’s decorating business when he was growing up in Ireland was to do more than you’re paid for. Surpassing customers’ expectations often led to happier customers and more work. In this episode, Brian shares eight timeless tips for exceeding customer expectations with the unexpected extras. The principles are timeless and can be incorporated by anyone at any level of their career. You’ll learn why a positive attitude can make all the difference, the top complaint of unhappy customers and how to avoid it, and why following up is important to building strong client relationships. By the end of the episode, you’ll be equipped to exceed your clients’ expectations.
