Quality is Crucial to Survive
Well Managed Quality Control Sets a Foundation for Repeat Business
Did you know you can grow your business with minimal marketing by just delivering quality only? In fact, it is the best marketing you can do for your business – under promise and over deliver.
Quality control in a small business refers to the processes and practices implemented to ensure that the products or services offered meet specified quality standards and customer expectations.
If you take systematic actions throughout the production or service delivery process of each of your product or service, you will provide your customers with a level of service that is expectated.
If your customers receive the same good quality service each time, they are likely to return again and again. This sets your business up for repeat work and therefore is almost as good as a subscription based service where the income coming into your business is almost certain.
However, you should strive to produce your product or service to a very high standard and avoid mistakes at all costs. If you do this, your business will spread naturally by word of mouth and you will get repeat customers over and over again.
Mistakes – Avoid them at All Costs
But BEWARE – as soon as you make a mistake, your loyal Clients are likely to abandon you. It’s a tough and competitive world. However you can ensure your business is producing the best quality it can by implementing quality control checks to suit.
Everyone Makes Mistakes
Eliminate Them From Your Business and Watch Your Business Grow
Yes – we all make mistakes. However trying to eliminate them and ensure mistakes don’t go out the door is the goal.
Chances are if you make a mistake and your Client is impacted, it is very hard to retain that Client. Usually they will just go elsewhere. Competition is tough and you need to ensure your team is well educated, trained well, proactive and professional.
