Do you even care about me as the customer?

That’s a question that I found myself asking just a few days ago. I’ve been a long-time customer of DirecTV, but when I started looking at what I was paying for the service every month, I said, “You know what? It’s just not worth it to me. I’m gonna cancel it.” I called in, talked to a representative, and it really wasn’t until I threatened to leave that they said, “Oh, please, don’t go. We’ll reduce your bill in half.” Why couldn’t they have valued me the whole time I was a customer and reduced my bill to begin with? It wasn’t until I threatened to leave that I got even that option.

The same thing happened with my cellphone service. I felt I was paying too much. I was given an offer to change carriers, so I called my current carrier and said, “Look, the other guy’s making me this amazing deal,” and it wasn’t until I threatened to leave that they then reduced my bill by half. I’m the customer.

Finally! A Marketing Plan Just For You

Just imagine what your business will look like in the next 30 days when you pick the perfect marketing plan for your business

Small business owners, you can learn a lot from this. The lesson is focus on the customers, clients, and patients that you have. Focus on the retention, not what are you going to do to bring new guys in the door. That’s what everybody else is doing, but if you focus on the customers, clients, and patients that you already have, they will leave you rave reviews, they’ll go out and tell others, and they won’t have to call you threatening to leave.

That’s your marketing lesson for today. Focus on retention.
