As time goes by, the importance of social media is gradually increasing. About two-third of people in the world have their own social media account, almost every business therefore is running their own social networking sites, no matter what type of business they are engaging in. If taxi drivers promote their services through social media sites, undoubtedly it can help taxi drivers gain more exposure, as well as create a young and dynamic image in people’s minds.
2. Be polite and friendly
Serving customers with a polite and friendly attitude is of the utmost importance in the service industry, while many drivers overlooked this essential part of their business. It is not rare to see taxi drivers refusing to take passengers or making a detour, some taxi drivers may even speak foul languages to passengers. Customers should not be the one to tolerate that; so taxi drivers should always bear in mind that politeness is always the way to retain customers.
