They Are Your Customers to Lose

Boating is fun. When people are shopping for a boat or headed to their boat or out cruising on their boat, in general I'll bet they are in a pretty darn good mood. Boating offers some freedom from the daily grind, together time with your friends and family, a celebration of beautiful weather and leisure time. So with this in mind, when you have a boating customer or client in your chandlery, show room, brokerage or at your gas dock, they are your customer to lose.
Offering the best possible customer service to each and every customer is a no brainer. You've got the family of eager boaters right there in front of you, pfd's in one hand and picnic cooler in the other. Take a few moments to give them a big smile, learn their names, offer them knowledgeable advice and keep the good feelings flowing. They already associate boating with positive things, by extending that attitude to their marina and their salesperson you are taking out insurance that they don't need to look anywhere else.
