  1. Answer your phone.
  2. Don’t make promises unless you WILL keep them.
  3. Listen to your customers.
  4. Deal with complaints.
  5. Be helpful - even if there’s no immediate profit in it.
  6. Train your staff (if you have any) to be ALWAYS helpful, courteous, and knowledgeable.

  8. Throw in something extra.
