Customer Connection

Every successful, growing company steps back at some point to see that good work and a good product or service has earned them a solid customer base.

Do Your Customers Love You Enough?

Further growth becomes easier when the organization develops a “farming” perspective to make the most of existing relationships in addition to the “hunting” approach that drove growth in the first place. This pivot takes skill and intention.

Build the right plan to make your organization a customer connection powerhouse:

  • Drive more growth at lower cost by selling more to those who already know you, and keep them coming back

  • Use referrals and reference selling to get into more new deals and reduce new customer acquisition costs

  • Make better decisions with input from those who know you best and feel invested in your success

  • Reduce costly churn, increase customer lifetime value

 

Create customer love

Customer love has five keys. Each one has as many expressions as your organization has customers and imagination.

  1. Understand and architect customer journeys

  2. Create successful customers

  3. Talk to customers skillfully

  4. Build listening opportunities

  5. Build a customer-listening culture

 

Customers who love your brand, your products, and your people buy more, more often, and stay with you longer. Loyal customers are 80% more likely to choose your brand again and twice as likely to recommend you to others. Loyal customers provide referrals, references, and recommendations. They tell you how to get better, sometimes when you ask and sometimes without having to ask.

 

Studies in the financial services industry show that just a 5% rise in customer retention boosts profits over 25%. SaaS companies who intentionally help customers onboard increase their user population faster, implement more of their solution, and get higher satisfaction ratings.
