Managing Relationship with Customers for Organisational Growth+
Why You Should Attend This Course:
As statistics show that it costs between 6 to 10 times more to recruit a new customer compared to persuading your existing customers to buy more, it makes business sense to focus on improving customer relationships. To do so, the short-term solution is to bind them with “loyalty” discounts. This helps but it costs money to do so.
This course shows you how to turn customers into “ambassadors” by winning their hearts as well as their heads. You will learn how great companies such as Harley-Davidson build communities with their customers with the result that their customers not only buy more Harley products but take pride in extending the Harley family by recruiting their friends and relatives to become Harley customers – and all for free!
