Why you should over-deliver in your business

Why you should over-deliver in your business

You should always over-deliver in your business in order to keep your clients happy and get people talking about you.

I’m not saying that you should suddenly slash your prices – far from it – but the perceived value should always exceed the paid-for price.

There is a reason people pay more for certain products and services, and that’s because of the experience. If something comes beautifully wrapped in a gold box, or if something comes in a padded envelope, the perceived value of the boxed item is far more than the jiffy bag one, even if they cost the exact same amount.

Let me give you a real world example:

We were expecting a delivery from IKEA yesterday, that we’d paid £15 delivery for, and booked in for a specific date.

It didn’t arrive.

I got an email today saying it was coming on Monday.

No explanation. No apology. Hmm. Bit disappointing.

If you are going to offer a premium price for a service or product, then it’s imperative you deliver to your customers’ expectations.

Never over-promise and under-deliver. It could damage your reputation, cause ill-feeling and bad press, and be a barrier to growing your business.

Be the gold box in a world of padded envelopes.

That is why you should under-promise and over-deliver in your business. Your customers will love you for it, recommend you, and keep coming back for more 🧡
