CHESTER, ENGLAND, November 15, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to Bain and Co., a 5% increase in customer retention can increase a company's profitability by 75%. PerDM agree customer retention is crucial for a business to succeed and place importance on the quality of leads generated for their clients. The firm believe effective customer retention begins with the first contact an organization has with a customer, and continues throughout the entire lifetime of the relationship.
PerDM are outsourced by brands looking to increase customer acquisition. A unique selling proposition (USP) the field marketing agency promotes is the quality of the leads they generate. They suggest a company's ability to attract and retain new customers is strongly related to the way it services its customers. "An area we are constantly looking to improve is customer retention. Obtaining new customers is a service many companies can provide but we strongly believe we offer a point of difference by exceeding the customers' expectations in customer care so that they become loyal advocates of a brand. Meaning we offer a higher level of customer retention," says Ian Attwood, Director at PerDM.
Many marketing plans are so focused on customer acquisition that they largely ignore customer retention. Forbes.com reveals "being passive about customer retention only leads to greater attrition. Companies that play an active part in communicating with customers to keep them engaged and better meet their needs and expectations, are well on their way to achieving the prime objective of any customer retention program; greater customer loyalty."
PerDM outline long-term profitability is largely dependent on a brand's ability to retain customers and believes that an effective direct sales and marketing channel offers a unique opportunity to understand customer needs. "It is very apparent how much customers appreciate a personalised service. The field marketing campaigns we develop allow us to get in front of the customer, build rapport and understand what it is that influences a customer's buying decision. We are able to utilise this information to improve rates of customer retention," adds PerDM's Director, Ian Attwood.
PerDM strongly suggest businesses introduce strategies and tactics for customer loyalty & customer retention in order to help ensure prolonged growth and success.
