SURVIVAL: BUSINESS EDITION PART I BIZBLOCK By Victor Padilla Question: How good should my business products/services be? Answer: It is a fact that if your product is of good quality you have a better chance that it will have a demand. Clients are always looking for something they can count on and quality is a great part of putting trust in your business. Clients will not mind paying a little extra if your product and/or service is worth it. Failure comes when your product is not what you portray it to be, this could bring your business to a complete stop. Clients want what they pay for because finances are tight and if what you are selling is not of good quality they will not return. Always make sure your product is worthy of your client’s expectation.
