Management guru Peter Drucker famously said the purpose of any business is to create customers.
But for freelance copywriters, consultants, and other self-employed professionals, knowing how to create customers is not nearly enough to ensure your ongoing success.
No, what you need to do is continually create extraordinary levels of customer satisfaction.
If all you do is get customers and attain ordinary levels of satisfaction, you will have high client turnover, few steady clients, and mediocre word of mouth marketing.
So your levels of repeat business will be low. As a result, you’ll spend too much time marketing for new clients and promoting yourself … instead of servicing orders. The former costs time and money. The latter is lucrative and makes your business profitable and successful.
To have a profitable service business, you must achieve two conditions – both of which are dependent on producing outrageous customer satisfaction in the clients you serve.
First, you want customers to be happy nearly all the time, so whenever they need what you sell, they call you – and not your competitors -- first.
Second, you want them to sing your praises so that whenever they are asked if they know someone who does what you do, they give your name in referral – first.
The good news is that creating extraordinary client satisfaction, once difficult, is now easier. And best of all, you don’t have to even be the best at what you do to have clients raving about you … because there are dozens of steps you can take to utterly delight your clients – seemingly little things that go far beyond the work you do for them! Read on for details and a special risk-free offer….
Discover how to “wow” your clients to gain their loyalty and repeat business -- for life!

"Bob, I bought this ebook two days ago. I sat down that night and outlined the entire book, including all 29 secrets. I've printed and posted that outline (two pages) next to my computer to help me keep these in mind. I sent an engagement agreement to a new client today and used tips from your ebook. He responded with a quick signature and check. He probably would have gone with me anyway, but writing the engagement agreement in a way that made clear...and how...I would putting my client first really helped.
The 29 secrets are far more valuable than what I paid you. But your development of those secrets and all the bonus content (including the client satisfaction survey and other useful forms) I wasn't expecting blew me away. You definitely under-promised and over-delivered...just as you recommend.
