In today’s fast-paced society, customers have developed an “I want it now!” mindset, fueled by instant communication and the convenience of digital platforms and AI. The importance of fast turnaround time cannot be underestimated. This article explores the significance of meeting customer expectations promptly and the impact it can have on building customer loyalty and gaining a competitive edge.
There are many weeks where we at Kiers Marketing find ourselves having to complete a big project on a tight deadline. Just last week a customer decided to buy from us again because of the great turnaround on their last project.
On their previous project, they were attending a trade show and needed a last minute poster designed, printed, laminated and ready for shipping the next day. We met the deadline. The project we received from them this week was much larger than the last one and it’s looking like they will turn into a regular customer.
This is one of the main benefits of being able to provide a quick turnaround, and we’re able to do this because we have the experience and tools necessary all right under one roof.
There has been a societal shift toward immediate gratification and businesses that regularly meet fast turnaround times gain a significant advantage in the market.
Addressing Customer Urgency

But put yourselves in the customer’s shoes who accidentally miscalculated the number of posters they needed for their big 25th anniversary event. #KiersKares and so we try to relate to their situation. This makes us kinder marketers and motivates us to do an even better job. We understand the importance of the event and feel the client’s pain.
