How to Drive Your Customers Away
July 30th, 2015
There are a few methods you can implement to drive your customers away... What? You don't want to do that? Read on what mistakes are common (and yeah, please don't repeat them at home or in your business.)
Who cares about that thing called time? Whoever came up with the adage "Time is money" had no idea what they were talking about...
Besides, Apple can afford to do this - why can't we? Yes, they have all those deadlines and scheduled presentations, but they make their fans wait... right?
If you would like to drive your customers away, make a question like "Name five laundry detergents you use to wash white and colored socks" a required question on the contact form. Because you have to know!
There's also a feeling that some websites were definitely created by extreme introverts. We know that the global psychological trend is to identify oneself with introverts and just pretend the outside world doesn't exist. So hide your contact form in a shell like a hermit crab and wait for people to bother forcing you out to talk to you.
Yes. Only what you promised. Nothing less... and nothing more. Just the bare minimum.
If you have promised to create two features, don't bother to offer to create a third. The clients might refuse and you would've spent all the time thinking about the possible third feature. Why go out of one's way?
Learn from the best of Mary Kay, Oriflame, Avon and other cosmetics' "pyramids." Do you have a friend? Sell your product to her. Did you make an acquaintance at some social networking event? Tell them all about your products' benefits, record them in our database as a possible lead, and again, sell your product. Who needs friends with whom you have a normal relationship when you're making money off of them?
Pretend you're a secret service agent and you cannot disclose any information about yourself or you'd have to kill whomever you've told. Why are people, and especially clients, so nosy about everything these days? Can't a business be a private one? Oh well, sign this NDA and we'll tell you.

Jokes aside, people do these mistakes and lose clients as a result. Live and learn, as the saying goes and please, we beg you, don't repeat these in your business.
