Do your customers grow your business? Invest 6.5 minutes on the video and see how to take your customers to Level 3.Ask yourself: How much you spend on getting new customers and then ask yourself if you spend at least a fraction of the amount on customer loyalty and on getting your customers to sing your tune!
Many local businesses focus on PPC Adwords, adverts in newspapers, billboard ads, flyers at robots and more. The drive is to find new customers. Paid advertising does, I believe work given that it is optimised to convert a targeted niche audience. This is not the problem, the problem lies in the lost opportunity of getting existing customers to grow your business. It has to be the cheapest, by far. Just image having 500 customers singing your song and advising you on the next tune that they want to dance to! It's called Customer Loyalty. It is not a complex idea the complexity is hidden in the simplicity of the idea and it is for this reason that many prefer to work hard rather than work smart.
Do you have a customer loyalty programme? Is your programme a baseline self-interest programme or are you a step up at the customer engagement level? Let us explore the route to the next level.How much more does it cost to market to existing customers than to prospective new ones? Estimates range from 5 to 25 times more. Also, existing customers, on average will spend at least 50% more.What are you doing to excite, engage and build a relationship with your customers?Issuing loyalty cards to be stamped or issuing stamps & stickers encourages customer loyalty and it is a good start. It shows that there is self-interest. Many points systems and customer tier systems also hook customers into being loyal because it is in their self-interest.The problem is that the goodwill is not used to grow your business.We create active customer databases with individual personalized loyalty accounts online on-phone or on-PC.
