Your business can offer promotions and slash prices to bring in as many new customers as it wants, but unless they can get some of those customers to come back, the business won’t be profitable for long
  8. 8. Simple Techniques for attracting and getting more customers  Identify what they consumer group you are targeting primary needs are and customize what you offer to address those needs  Research the cost effective ways used by your industry to pass that message across of what you are offering  Word of mouth is the fastest way to attract customers especially through satisfied customers, therefore from inception ensure your goal is always to satisfy your target customers  Encourage referrals from your already existing customers  Address complaints as soon as possible, customers who had their complaints addressed become loyal and go on to be advocates
  9. 9. Wisdom The purpose of a business is to create and keep a customer. If a business successfully creates and keeps customers in a cost- effective way, it will make a profit while continuing to survive and thrive. If, for any reason, a business fails to attract or sustain a sufficient number of customers, it will experience losses. Too many losses will lead to the demise of the enterprise. THANK YOU
