If you want to keep clients happy, remember customer service is the hallmark of good business, Joshua Sanders says.

The Canonsburg, Pa., farrier says clients can be fickle, but your best bet is to deliver good work and basic customer service.

“If you provide them with what they want, such as showing up on time, I feel most will stay with you, even in tougher times,” Sanders says. “A sense of loyalty can build up.”

He says this is particularly true of the clients who are more like ”pet owners.” The mentality of this modern horse owner may be to sacrifice income or savings to keep a geriatric horse going or comfortable.

Sanders provided these comments as part of the 2021 International Hoof-Care Summit Virtual Clinic Series. Register today to watch his presentation, as well as dozens of others.
