customer loyalty

Bonus: Turning clients into superfans with great customer service

podcast

When we hear the words “customer service” we tend to think about retail stores–the service that you get from a store associate or how someone helps you in a retail environment. But customer service is really what we do with our clients every single day. It’s how we interact with them from the time that they first contact us to the time that we show up in their home. It’s how we communicate with them, it’s how we get them on as a client, it’s everything we do to make them feel valued.

After growing her in-person client services for years, a family move and changing priorities led her to look to taking that service business to the online space. As professional organizers expand their services to virtual services and online courses, Jennifer has a lot of great advice on how she added these services, and what professional organizers can consider if they are looking at expanding online.

When professional organizers work with clients, emotions and psychology often come into play. Our guest today is Dr. Ania Schwartzman, who combines her clinical psychology degree with a lifetime love of fashion into her personal styling business The Fashionologist. Ania joins us to talk about what professional organizers can learn from a client’s closet, and how we can better help our clients through the organizing process by listening and asking key questions. She also tells us a little about how fashion is changing and gives us ideas about pro organizer work wardrobes as a bonus.

how to invest in your own business

Minisode 1: When Is It Time To Invest In Your Pro Organizing Business?

podcast

Jen and Melissa are talking about one of our favorite topics–when is it time to make some investments in your pro organizing business? “Investment” doesn’t have to mean multi thousands of dollars–it can mean “when is it time to hire a web designer” or “when is it time to stop using a free spreadsheet and start using an accounting system.” Knowing when to invest–and what to invest in–is important, and Jen and Melissa talk about their (sometimes very different!) philosophies on spending for your business.

building a strong network

Entrepreneurship can sometimes feel a little lonely. Developing a network, and finding people who can be a professional support system is important–but can be overwhelming.
