All customers are good clients. Maybe not all. There are customers, or former customers, that businesses choose not to do business with. For this article, we’ll assume that you are willing to do business in any way with anyone who approaches you.

All customers are good, I said. Some customers are still better than others. What makes them superior? They buy more from us. They spend more. Spending more money when purchasing. They are more easy to deal with. There are several reasons.

When trying to determine a good client by numbers, however, we tend to look at how much they spend. What is the average value of your customers? This is crucial, as you will need to add up all your customers to get an average customer. You can divide your customers into two groups: those who spend a large amount of money and those who pay less.

He understood it. It was not how much I spent the first time. The important thing was that I represented his customer, no matter how little or much I spent. The point is to look after all your customers. Both the small and large ones. No matter how much money you spend, everyone should feel respected, appreciated, and happy.
