Businesspeople twist themselves into pretzels recruiting new customers and closing sales. But few take the necessary steps to transform new customers into repeat buyers. Often, they don’t know how. Marketing strategist Noah Fleming provides a well-conceived, field-tested, four-stage program for developing an enthusiastic, loyal customer base. Fleming’s worthwhile book features a lot of valuable information that you can put into practice immediately, though he also tends to critique other authors and to brag a bit.

However, his advice about customer service is accessible and useful. getAbstract recommends his solid counsel to business owners and managers seeking strategies for developing loyal, repeat customers.
