When selecting a new supplier for a product or service, particularly for a more complex sale, there is always a risk that you might not get what you want. So you look for clues to give you confidence.
Who recommends them? Do they have a guarantee? What sort of after sales support will they provide? Are there independent reviews? Who else has bought from them? What is the quality, or does the low price indicate it won’t last?
These are questions you ask to give you the final confidence in making the buying decision, when you have checked out all the other product attributes, because we all know what it says on the box is not necessarily what we get inside. We need to be reassured that we will get what we pay for.
