Posted by Stacey Papp

A key to any business’ success is attracting more customers. What often gets overlooked during the excitement of celebrating new customers is how important retaining the customers you already have. Customer retention is based on many things – customer service, quick response time, educated technicians, friendly office staff and even an accurate billing process. 

Whether you are speaking to a driver, customer support representative, receptionist or account manager, everyone one of your employees is a prime candidate to enhance customer retention by understanding your standards for the customer experience. Check out these three tips to help make sure everyone in your organization is delivering top-notch customer service to keep ‘em coming back for more.

1. Know What Your Customers Want
By far, this is the first – and we think the most important – step to maintaining happy customers. Understanding your customers’ needs and even proactively anticipating what they may be calling for (I know, you’re not a psychic but this is where having access to that great customer data you keep will come in handy), will give them the warm and fuzzies…and that’s a good thing. Be sure to equip your staff with all the knowledge they need to help your customers overcome challenges, no matter how small or severe. Actively demonstrating your teams’ dedication to learning about your customers’ needs will put you in a great spot to help them weather any kind of obstacle.

2. Show Your Customers Some Love
Meeting your customers’ needs is one thing but to go above and beyond for each and every customer is the name of the game of these days. Make sure your team is on the same page – proactively asking each customer if they are in need of assistance or following-up when you’ve helped them solve a predicament is grade A customer service that your customers will love. At the end of the day, your customers are your lifeline and when you send the message to them that you care about them and want to help in any way you can, you are working toward creating a loyal fan base that sustains your business for years to come.

3. Empower Your Employees
If your employees love the place they work, your customers will love working with them. When your employees are excited to come to work and passionate about what they do, your customers will notice. No doubt, one of your goals is to build and maintain a company culture that you and your team can be proud of. Take some time to instill those cultural values in your employees and watch the foundation of your business be housed on a great customer service experience.
