How to Improve Customer Retention by Building Emotionally Engaging Customer Experiences
Vienna, VA (Vocus) September 26, 2009
Parature, a global leader in on-demand customer service software, announced today the release of a free white paper offering customer service and support professionals insight into customer emotion and how it relates to customer retention. The white paper entitled "How to Improve Customer Retention by Building Emotionally Engaging Customer Experiences" is available for download in Parature's white paper library.
In this recession-driven environment, companies are clamoring to increase revenue and save costs; customer retention has never been more important. Oddly enough, most organizations spend more on marketing to gain customers rather than to retain them. A published study by the American Society of Quality Control asked the question "Why do customers leave companies?" Sixty-eight percent of the respondents answered the question with the following "because of the company's indifferent attitude to the customer." So how can organizations change this apathetic attitude and improve customer retention? How to Improve Customer Retention by Building Emotionally Engaging Customer Experiences explores building an emotional connection with your customers to not only retain them, but have them become customer advocates, recommending and staying loyal to the organization.
In a Parature webinar entitled "How to Improve Customer Retention by Building Emotionally Engaging Customer Experiences," Colin Shaw - international bestselling author and customer experience guru, will demonstrate how organizations can focus on the areas of a customer experience that provide the greatest value and enable them to use their resources to the greatest effect. He will also introduce the new area of the 'subconscious experience' that drives customer behavior and how the understanding of this experience can save costs. Colin will deliver the webinar to our U.K. audience on Wednesday, September 30, 2009 at 2:00pm GMT and to our U.S. audience on Wednesday, October 21, 2009 at 2:00pm EDT.
