Make sure that you meet and exceed their current expectations. Find ways to provide added value, that they may not find somewhere else. This can be as simple as including a page with FAQs, or some detailed notes about your project.

When you keep the customers’ best interest in mind, it’s a far more authentic approach. They will truly appreciate it. It will also lead to an increased lifetime value of the customer, too.
