Grow Your Client Base Today, Building Alignment and Accountability

  1. Keep your customers in the crosshairs of decision making. Make a culture-wide commitment to fully grasp the responsibility to make customer-centric decisions that drive extraordinary customer service and loyalty. Fun fact: Over the years, we’ve found that for many companies, 20 percent of their clients/customers drive 80 percent of the profits. So really get to know and build relationships with this core customer base, putting them front and center when business decisions are made.
  2. Make customer feedback easy and convenient for the audiences you serve. Customer feedback, whether in person or via surveys and other research tools, is how you’re going to really grasp what customers think, want and need. But if in any way you make it tough for them to share their thoughts, they’re not going to do it. And if they’re not going to do it, they’ll never really have that “seat at the table,” which supports your goal of putting and keeping customers at the forefront of decision making. Different audiences have different preferences, so do your research and figure out how to reach them, particularly those audiences who are driving profits.
  3. Honor the customer through results-oriented action and communication. Building and sustaining alignment between your business and that client/customer base depends on your ability to take action around the goals you’ve set, thanks to that vital feedback. Fail to take action and you’ll quickly lose credibility. What’s more, consistently fail to take action and you’ll lose your customers for life.
