How to Deal with Difficult Customers/ Clients


Customer and Clients are both considered a person that purchases goods or services. Though these two terms are used interchangeably, there is clear distinctions that lies in the depth of relationship and types of industry they are associated with. Leaving aside the controversies of whether customers and clients are same or no, the fact remains, In today’s social marketing era, they are the king. Their needs, expectations, choices and preferences are the cardinal factors of any business.

In today’s competitive and dynamic business environment, it is very important for any business to create a customer base and retain potential customers/clients in order to survive, grow and lead in the industry. In that context, customer dealing has got maximum attention in the enterprises. But due to easy access to massive communication interventions and complex business intrigues, customer behavior pattern has been exposed to manifold dimensions that has made customer dealing much more challenging and demanding. On the contrarily, in absence of proper knowledge on customer dealing, business professionals conducting meetings or negotiations with potential clients in the palatial main office building or sales persons merely interacting with leman customers in the point of sale make things worse to happen.

Research on customer dealing revealed that it costs seven times more to win a new client than to keep one you already have. Therefore it is imperative to know the principles and art of customer dealing. Despite having the set of principles of customer dealing in place, there is no panacea to heal every situation encountered with customers or clients. There is no ‘one size fits all” solution in customer dealing. Here, awareness of different types of difficult customers and clients pays dividends in dealing with them. In such case, besides discussing various theoretical issues of customer dealing, sharing of practical experiences among various participants and stakeholders will generate more pragmatic solutions.
