In episode three, we talk about how to organize and strategize your service offering to enhance your client experience with Donna Briggs, the owner of Harmony Massage. It happens all too often that we get our businesses up and running by taking the path of least resistance and that isn’t always in the best interest of your client experience. In many industries, service providers tend to use a cookie-cutter approach to their content and marketing, and in almost every case, it isn’t what’s best for your particular business and customer experience. In this episode, we tackle how to educate your clients so that they know what you offer, why they’d want to work with you, and what’s in it for them.

The Challenge & The Next 3 Steps
Donna does a great job providing top-notch service and being the trusted advisor for her clients, but she realizes that her current service offering is creating a roadblock that leads to client confusion — which then leads to Donna spending more time and energy explaining her different services. In order to help her solve this roadblock, we created these next 3 steps to help her create a better client experience.
- Audit your service descriptions and re-write them for your specific clients or customers. Ask yourself questions like:
- Who is the specific person that this service is for?
- What are they feeling physically and emotionally?
- What transformation will they go through or what solution with they find?
- Add photos or videos to help show what to expect.
- Use forms and questionnaires to help save you time and energy.
- Write blogs that describe your services
- Use stories to engage the reader and speak to them like you would one on one.
- Make an ongoing list of topics and batch writing your blogs for each month so that you’re always playing from ahead.
