Six Tips to Creating Better Customer Loyalty

Post summary:

  • The cost of selling to existing customers
  • What keeps customer loyal?
  • 6 free customer loyalty tips

The cost of keeping an existing customer is around five to ten times less than the cost of acquiring a new one. Economically, this makes sense, but how do you improve customer retention and increase profitability?

The answer is to create better customer loyalty.

All customers, no matter the business, continuously compare on price, service and quality before they pull the trigger and make a purchase. In fact, research says that on average, a buyer will visit at least three websites before making purchase.

And once they’ve become a customer, they’re still out there validating that they’ve made the right decision by browsing through the social web and visiting customer review sites.

Keeping customers makes good business sense, but it’s not an easy thing to do. Customer loyalty is more than just your average, run-of-the-mill customer retention tactics – We are talking about creating an attitude and a behavior which makes a customer favor your brand over another, whether it’s due to satisfaction, convenience or performance, or just being more comfortable with your brand.

And to help you achieve this level of loyalty, we have just launched a new white paper “Six Tips to Creating Better Customer Loyalty”.

One of the more complicated parts of customer loyalty is trying to show customers that you truly care before they sign up. Marketing jargon isn't enough (every company says the same about their business: "we care!") You have to find a way to show your customers by the entire experience you provide to them. Customer loyalty is heavily influenced by the quality of experience that you provide from start to finish (strike that, make it "infinity and beyond). Brad Hodson JobNimbus, http://www.jobnimbus.com
