If you want customers to continue walking through the doors of your business then you need to make a good impression at all times. It’s important to engage with your customers so that they know they are dealing with a real person – not to mention find ways to meet and exceed expectations in order to build ongoing customer loyalty.
For a customer to become loyal (and remain loyal) to your business, then they need to feel that customer satisfaction really is your number one priority. Let’s take a closer look at how your business can keep your customers coming back time and time again.
4 Ways to Increase Customer Loyalty
Create Positive Customer Experiences
Take time to regularly review your products and services as well as all the customer feedback you receive on a daily basis so that you can continually improve the way you do business. Hold weekly staff meetings to look at how business is doing and what can be done better. Think about whether customer service has been friendly and attentive enough, can delivery times be improved and/or is it easy for your customer to find the information they need about your products and services.
Value Customer Opinion
Show customers that their opinion matters to you and your business. Have a clear system in place for dealing with customer questions, concerns and complaints in a proper and timely manner as well as engaging with your customers regularly and encouraging feedback at all times. Always reply promptly to customer enquiries and if you need time to provide a proper response, include a ‘thanks for getting in touch’ message to show customers that you value them taking the time to contact you.
Offer Tangible Incentives
Running special promotions and offering discounts and loyalty programmes will help give your customers more reasons to buy from your business day in and day out. Creating repeat business is all about finding ways to influence, motivate and engage with your customers so provide tangible incentives that you know are going to appeal or add value to your customer base. Invite them to join you mailing list so that valued customers have access to exclusive offers and you have an outlet to keep your business top of mind.
Keep in Touch
Remember, there are a whole range of online tools out there that will let you keep in touch with your customers on a regular basis, attract prospects and spread the word about your business far and wide. Use email blasts to keep your customer database contacts up-to-date with latest news and special promotions, social media to create a presence in your local community and blogs and forums to provide information that adds value to your customer.
