The bottom line of every business is profitability. The quality of the products or services on offer, the pricing, the delivery and a number of other factors together contribute to success. It all culminates in your ability to sell what is on offer. More importantly, you need to build and retain a strong customer base for the future.
How hard you have to work to sell to your customers depends largely on the impression your business creates on them. That starts in earnest with the impression your office creates.
The first impression
A clean, efficient-looking workplace will obviously create a good impression on customers, and make selling easier. That will come from the exterior and interior appearance of your business premises.
If the car park is filthy, the first impression is revulsion. Dirty sidewalk, pathways, or walls covered with graffiti or stains would discourage further footfalls. If the interiors are no better than the exteriors, that would be the doom of your business.
On the other hand, unmatched exterior and interior cleanliness creates surely a positive first impression. It lays by itself a strong foundation for unprompted and unconscious customer perception of positive aspects of your business like the following:
- Professionalism: A clean office building assures customers that yours is a business that takes seriously all aspects of its operations, beginning with appearance. They are inclined to take you seriously, and consider you as a good supplier or business partner with excellent professionalism.
- Competence: Clean exteriors and interiors create an aura of all-around competence that will make the customers go beyond simply looking at the product or service: they are already halfway to conversion to your business. That again holds a promise of opening doors for future expansion with new products and services.
- Reliability: Clean appearance of the business premises helps forming a positive impression of the reliability of the products/services of the company. It facilitates proactive customer engagement, which is an essential mark of a steady and reliable business entity – one that is safe to deal with.
- Pride: A business that cares for its clean environment is one that can be proud of its business presence and progress. Its proud presence attracts customers because it stands out from the crowd. Customers tend to develop favorable opinion of its capabilities and potentials to meet its commitments.
