In the world of business, it’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of acquiring new customers. After all, new customers mean new revenue, and revenue is the lifeblood of any successful business. However, there is a growing realization that customer retention is even more important than customer acquisition.
When I talk to business owners in the sports industry, whether swim schools or martial arts businesses it’s always clear that the best-performing operators have a greater focus on customer retention.
For businesses to focus more on customer retention they first need to understand why it’s important and what’s in it for them.
Sometimes we do workshops with people in the industry, and I always find when we look at a case study and carefully look at the numbers that come from improving customer retention and it’s like something unlocks where the business owner can suddenly see just how important customer retention is.
Let’s look at some reasons why focusing on customer retention is more beneficial than customer acquisition.
So now we have established the importance of customer retention let’s look at how you can pro-actively improve this metric in your business.
We believe there are 3 main pillars of customer retention.
