Win Customer Loyalty By Showing Your Appreciation image

Customer Loyalty

Maybe the most important thing to understand about running ANY type of business is that it always costs more to generate new customers than it does to retain your existing ones. Because of that, you need to win your customers' loyalty whenever and however you can. More often than not, this means showing your gratitude - even during those times when you don't necessarily "have to." Thankfully, this process is less the product of one major move and is more about a series of smaller, more strategically timed ones. All of this effort can pay major dividends down the road, too. An Investment in Your Customers is an Investment in Your Future Maybe the most obvious way to show your gratitude to ...
