7 tips for having happy customers and how SimpliRoute helps you get them

Everybody knows companies cannot exist without their customers and they are constantly creating strategies focused on 2 fronts: Getting new customers and keeping existing ones, but which one should be prioritized?

Researchers say that focusing on actions to keep customers is cheaper than getting new ones: If the client is happy and satisfied with the product, it is highly likely that he will buy again and recommend the brand to a new potential client.

Wouldn't it be wonderful to put all the efforts into leaving them so, but so happy, that they naturally become promoters of your brand and convince more and more customers to use your products?

Yes, it would be paradise! But, to begin with, how could you offer a remarkable experience to your customers?

Then, you can read some good practices that will allow you to develop a strategy focused on Customer Experience (full article)

7 tips to create actions focused on keeping customers happy

  1. Create a clear vision of customer experience. Think about what image your company should project to its clients and how to make each member of your team be a promoter of that image. To address this point, many companies propose values and good practices to their employees.
  2. Understand who your customers are. Get as much customer data as you can. In this way, the team that contacts them has greater knowledge of how to empathize and understand them better.
  3. Establish an emotional bond with your clients. When a member of your team has the opportunity to contact one of your clients, it is time to show how much you care about providing the best products to make them happy. Projecting care does not have to be expensive, moreover, keeping in mind that "It's not what you say, but how you say it" you can train the team that contacts your clients so they will know how to approach different situations with the only and great objective to create positive emotions.
  4. Know in real time what they think of your brand, products and/or services. You will never improve if you do not know what they want, it bothers them or they lack. You must have channels to receive your customers’ opinions. If the opinion is positive, continue like this and congratulate those who achieved it! If it is negative, then act quickly to revert the situation with the client, and generate tactics within the team to prevent it from happening again.
  5. Have a team that knows how important it is to leave satisfied customers. Spend enough time to train each member of your team. Remember that you are preparing them to represent the brand and establish an emotional bond with your customers, especially those who contact them directly.
  6. Listen to the experiences of your employees who have direct contact with your customers. Have good communication with them. This way you’ll find out about the concerns they have that could affect the quality of the distribution of your products. In addition, they are the ones who are directly related to customers, so they can have fresher ideas of what customers demand or may need.
  7. Identify how likely it is that your customers recommend you among their networks of contacts. All the tips mentioned above seek the happiness of the customer by providing a good experience, but how to measure if things are doing well? Among so many indicators and formulas that companies use, there is a very simple question that you can ask your clients to know if they are happy with the brand: Would you recommend this company to a friend or family member? If the answer is yes, congratulations! You are doing things well.
