“While the prescription is unique to each individual customer, we use the Platinum Rule® as our foundation: treat other people the way they want to be treated. Demonstrate to your customer that you’re paying attention to their expectations.”
Woodstock, ON (PRWEB) November 07, 2012
Close-Up Talk Radio will feature Anne Miner, founder and President of The Dunvegan Group in a four-part interview series discussing customer satisfaction, customer care and customer retention. Show dates are November 20th at 12pm; November 23rd at 1:30pm; November 30th at 7:30pm and December 7th at 2:30pm.
Anne Miner maintains that the key to financial stability and sustained growth is customer retention. While the hunt for new customers is often more exciting and more highly rewarded than the nurturing of existing relationships, it often costs six to ten times as much for a company to acquire a new customer.
“We are specialists in customer care and customer retention,” says Miner. “We help predominantly business-to-business companies better understand their customers to generate more revenue by better serving their customers.”
According to Miner, businesses often assume their existing customer relationships are quite strong when in fact they haven’t truly secured the relationship. Even when customers indicate that they are "satisfied" using one of the traditional measuring scales, if the relationship is weak, they may leave.
As part of their comprehensive approach, the Dunvegan team conducts annual customer satisfaction evaluation interviews with their clients’ customers to assess what the customer values about their relationship as well as what they would like done differently. Once completed, a prescription for action is recommended to strengthen their relationships and leverage those relationships to generate referrals, one customer at a time.
“Each company program will measure some fundamentals, which we call good business practices, as well as specific practices unique to their industry,” explains Miner. “While the prescription is unique to each individual customer, we use the Platinum Rule® as our foundation: treat other people the way they want to be treated. Demonstrate to your customer that you’re paying attention to their expectations.”
