The difference between a client and a customer might seem slight, but frequently the terms are used interchangeably to refer to any person or firm that uses your products or services. Regardless of what you call them, understanding their needs and their satisfaction level is critical to the success of your organization. Learn how to utilize client acquisition and retention strategies for sales success with Sales Focus’s guidance.

Today’s clients and customers have high expectations. This becomes more of a factor every year as increased competition presents them with alternative and viable options. Their minimum standard is often that they expect you to provide unequaled service or a flawless product, and then keep them completely satisfied. Your task is clear yet your way of accomplishing it is not always apparent.

Sales Focus’s client acquisition and retention strategies

Since its inception in 1998, Sales Focus, Inc. has provided a valuable way to contribute to our client’s customer acquisition and retention strategy. There is nothing more important to a business than its customers. Few would disagree that the retention of those that are profitable and long-term is the major key to a company’s success. For that reason alone, it would be hard to overemphasize how critical it is to listen to what they are saying. From a growth perspective, satisfied and long-term loyal customers are the ones who will promote your name and recommend you to others. Reference selling, and leveraging goodwill and relationships, is perhaps the most effective way to sell. It is a well-known fact that it is many times more costly to add a new account than it is to retain a well-established one.

Just taking the time to review your customers’ satisfaction, and your performance shows them that you care. This third-party approach can identify customers who are at risk and give you concrete information on how to improve your service. Sales Focus will conduct interviews with your important customers electronically or via telephone during which we ask key decision-makers to speak to various aspects of your company’s services, relationships, products, and programs. You designate the customers you want to include then SFI sets up a call with the manager most closely connected to the customer to more fully explain the program. We then provide your management with sample correspondence, verbiage, and guidance to help them inform your customers of the program. We then set up telephone interviews with key customer executives and provide you will a detailed report.
