Most businesses have two basic goals: to maintain profitability and to grow revenue. As simple as these goals are, some companies are so focused on growing new business pursuits, they tend to overlook the importance of keeping their current customers satisfied. Generating and retaining loyal, longtime customers should be a priority for every business.
While some government contractors and corporations think the lowest price is always the deciding factor to retaining (or winning) a customer, the economical choice does not always win. Often the deciding factor has many components: proof of abilities, performance, and a strong customer relationship.
While there is no “secret sauce” involved in keeping your customer satisfied, there are customer service best practices to ensure a healthy and long-lasting relationship:
Customers are loyal when a company is consistently meeting and exceeding customer service expectations. Regular communication and consistent performance and delivery of services will go a long way to ensure customer satisfaction and retention. Above all, the best companies conduct business in a way that reflects their values —how they want to be seen, perceived, and understood by their customers.
