Most companies do everything backward in marketing and sales. They put 90% of their efforts into searching for new customers. Noah Fleming, the “Customer Retention Guy,” explains why you should focus instead on current clients – the folks who keep the lights on and the profits flowing. Fleming explains how to transition from “how-do-we-get-more-new-customers” to “how-do-we-better-care-for-our-existing-customers.” He offers practical tips on developing customer-loyalty programs and improving client-related service. getAbstract recommends this useful manual to the owners of small and midsize businesses, sales and service professionals, and marketing executives.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why your company should focus more on keeping old customers than on acquiring new ones;
- How to use the “three C’s” of “character, community and content”;
- How to exploit customer archetypes;
- How to organize customer-loyalty programs; and
- How to woo back former customers.
