All business owners want to have happy, loyal customers who spend more, cost less to service, and help spread the word about their positive experiences. These days, word-of-mouth referrals are more common because consumers like to share their opinions on public forums and social media websites. Today in the blog, we want to explore how business owners can encourage and increase customer loyalty. See some of our ideas below.
1. Be more convenient than anyone else
Think about your customers and how you can make life easier for them. That might mean changing your hours of operation, having more ways to get in touch and responding quickly, etc. Another type of convenience to consider would involve normal user or customer actions, like auto-billing, automatic orders, and reminders. All of these things make it easier for users to enjoy what they are paying for.
2. Establish a personal relationship with each individual customer
A significant aspect of customer loyalty comes down to your likability. Take advantage of any opportunity to get to know a client on a personal level. In doing so, you will put yourself in a situation to develop good rapport with every customer and, more importantly, give you critical information to use during follow-up opportunities. Train your employees to do the same, and to make every customer’s experience a positive one, from beginning to end.
3. Recognise your regular customers and invest more in them
Identify those customers who never leave you during your highs and lows, they need to be recognised and treated with extra care. Of course, every customer deserves our attention, but investing in those promising a long term loyalty must be a priority. A POS system like the ones Dark POS has developed, help you identify those customers easily.
4. Set up a great loyalty program.
When implemented correctly, a system that rewards your best customers can encourage repeat spending and boost loyalty. The specifics of your loyalty program will depend on your store, and some POS systems, like Dark POS, can help you implement a loyalty program that fits your business.
