As a business owner, we spend a lot of time trying to get customers in the door and purchase from our companies. We spend a lot of time trying to retain our customers. It all starts with their very first experience. When your customer walks through the parking lot during a snow storm, how is that experience? Was the parking lot covered in ice making the walk dangerous or was the walk easy? Could the customer see pellets of rock salt on the parking lot not only to melt the ice but also to provide traction for their shoes? These are all things that need to be considered in the customer experience. Generally, if a customer has a bad experience, they will not be returning. What are you doing to make sure your customers have a great experience during a winter snow storm that may produce ice when the temperatures drop?
