"We are featuring Lee on the show," says Mandy, "Because without a proactive client retention process, you can expect your valuable client base to steadily and quietly slip through your fingers like grains of sand." Frank, an insurance broker from Brea, California, who has followed Lee's advise adds:
"I did not fully appreciate the power of Proactive Emotional Marketing until one of my clients, an attorney, called. Apparently I was the only person who remembered his birthday."
According to Holden, who works with small business owners on a daily basis, sixty-seven percent of the customers we lose, go somewhere else simply because we did not stay in touch. Show host, Mandy Bass agrees: "It is an avoidable problem that Lee Holden knows how to solve. This is show you wonÂt want to miss."
Holden says, "It can cost ten to twenty times more to gain a new customer than to keep one you already have. If you focus on client retention as part of your business strategy, you can grow your business and reduce advertising costs by 20% - 40% over a three-year period."
His clients are generous in their praise for his process: "Lee Holden's structured communications process grows 'Top-of-Mind' awareness with both current clients who already like and trust me and potential clients. Best of all it supports my other advertising and marketing and takes little of my time or attention," says Rick Fiege, President/CEO of CRM Security Systems. California. Debbie, a real estate transaction coordinator, agrees.
"By following Lee Holden's advice I immediately turned a $100 investment into $2700 of business. And my average transactions have increased by 133%."
