    Customers: you are one too! Do it like you want it done
    Customers are always right. Compensate, Rebate, BE GREAT
    Customers give you free word of mouth advertisement. More than words
    Customers follow the latest trends. Keep it Fresh
    Customers listen to other customers. I’ll hear it on the grape vine
    Customers are your business! No Show, no go

  3. Chris Reaburn says:

    Customers are your service network. Help your customers help your customers.

  4. “A customer is the most important visitor on our premises.
    He is not dependent on us.
    We are dependent on him.
    He is not an interruption on our work.
    He is the purpose of it.
    He is not an outsider on our business.
    He is a part of it.
    We are not doing him a favour by serving him.
    He is doing us a favor
    by giving us an opportunity to do”

    Mahatma Gandhi

  5. Customers are king. The cash is dead. Long live the king!
    Customers complain because your service didn’t reach their expectations. The best service is no need of service.

  6. Eric Jacques says:

    Customers demand excellence. Strive to achieve Customer Excellence!

  7. Customers have bad days too. Treat them gently and with kindness.
    Customers can be students. Teach them something new and help them grow.
    Customers are the spice of life and come in all varieties. Treat each one individually and tailor yourself to them.
    Customers don’t like to be told they are wrong. Don’t talk down to them, take the time to show them what needs to be done.
    Customers are like children. Sometimes you need to talk in their terms and be understanding when they ask for help.

  8. People who complain are my best customers. “Speak, and ye shall be heard. Listen, and ye shall be enlightened.”

  9. K. Brack says:

    Here are a few I just thought up, but it’s early so probably more to come.

    Customers drive your business. Keep fueling them (or fuel them).
    Customers are your muse. Take time to be inspired.
    Customers are why you’re in business. Stay in business.( and/or grow your business.)
