4 tips on How to Fail at Your Business:

1. Give them incorrect information. Customers love hearing wrong information about products and even prices.

2. Address them by the wrong name or misspell their name. Customers are most likely to turn to email or social media first to contact a company. They love reading a response from you.  They will surely notice when you use the wrong name or spell their name wrong, especially if their name is in their actual email address and/or signature.

3. Send them the wrong item, size, color or type of product. Customers love dealing with wrong items. It gives them a reason to call, Tweet, or email you.

4. Be rude to your customers. All it takes is one customer to upset and you are golden.
