Service isn't what you provide as much as what your customers feel they get. sounds kind of soft, however, meeting expectations you or your market sets about products or service lead to delivery satisfaction.
Customer satisfaction is simple. If a customer feels they didn't get what they expected, then they will be disasified. If they had no expectation, then it's a craps shoot.

Unfortunately the later, dissatisfaction, is a mainstay in this world of instant gratification, but you can shape your buyers perception if you know how.
Here's a quick primer on creating expectations for buyings, then delivering on your promise.
