While many business owners obsess about ways to reach new customers, when it comes down to it, your most important source for new business is right in front of you: your existing customers. Surprised? Your existing customers are not only the best source for new business (via expanded services) but they are also the ever-important ticket to new customers (referrals). That’s why you need to make sure you’re doing everything possible to maintain the loyalty of the customers you’ve already got.
While many businesses get in the habit of collecting customers, it’s far more important that existing customers feel valued. When a customer feels valued, they become loyal, even life-long. This gives you the opportunity to provide them with even more business. And as we all know, happy customers are the best sales team going.
So how do you earn this kind of loyalty?
