The Importance of Client Retention
Client retention is one of the most important aspects of running a business. By having loyal clients, your company can continue to grow as well as lead to referrals for new clients. If you provide your clients with consistent, excellent customer service, their loyalty will lie with you, but you have to know your customer retention strategies.
How to Keep Clients Interested
1. Keep in Touch
Clients will recognize who voluntarily makes an effort to keep in touch with them. Whether it’s reminding clients about an upcoming service or giving them an opportunity to give your business feedback, the client will feel like you care about their input.
To show you care, recognize your client’s business and major holidays. For example, know when your client’s birthday is to send a birthday card, or around the holidays, you can send them a “happy holidays” card.
When keeping in touch with your clients, it also gives you an opportunity to express your gratitude for their business; it will make your clients feel appreciated.
Once a client feels individually recognized and satisfied with your business’ customer service and product, they are more likely to refer people based on how you treated them. Current clients provide you with their service and bring in new clients, so having a repeat customer is the first step in growing your business. According to a study conducted by Bain & Company, if your customer retention increased by 5%, it can increase profits by more than 25%.
