How do you get ahead in an increasingly competitive world?
Build a better product? Increase productivity? Lower prices and/or sell harder to close more new customers?
Those are all good solutions and they are the first three places most people look to improve business. However, they are all costly and ultimately less important to your continued success than improving your relationships with existing customers. Relationships build business!
In most businesses, winning a new customer actually costs more than the profit they bring in. But a repeat buyer is almost pure profit. One customer who buys twice can be worth more than four customers who buy once but never again.
Did you know that it's actually easier (and less expensive) to convert a dissatisfied customer into a repeat buyer than it is to land a new customer? And a dissatisfied customer can probably tell you more about fixing your business than any high-priced consultant ever could.
