Making the Filtration Buying Process Easier for Your Customers

If you’ve seen it once, you’ve seen it a hundred times — customers who come to you looking for a home filtration system, unaware of what their specific needs are. While many consumers simply want a system that improves their water’s taste and aesthetic qualities, the majority are looking for a product that will make their water healthier. But as you know, “healthier” is a subjective term, and without knowing the issues that are present in the customer’s water, providing them with a system that fits their needs isn’t very easy to do.

Wasted Time, Money and Energy

It’s too bad that so many water management and
manufacturing firms waste so much money on public relations (PR) activities
that have little or no impact on the press or, more importantly, on their
prospective customers.

Deck: 

Public relations efforts are better off with management’s involvement.

Smart Management Through the Downturn

While the downturn – okay, recession – was tough in the early 1990s, you have to go back to the early 1980s to see one that had the global scale as the one we’re experiencing now.

Even before the Sept. 11 disaster, we saw the warning signs.
