Turning Customers into Raving Fans
Research at the University of Texas found that customer satisfaction is no guarantee of customer loyalty. Customers who indicated on questionnaires that they were simply "happy" with a product or service were as likely as those who had no opinion at all to abandon the vendor. The only indicator that predicted long-term loyalty was when customers used emotional words like "love" and "adore" to describe the vendor. In other words, if you want your customers to stay with you, they are more likely to do so if they LOVE YOU. So the question is, how to you get your customers to LOVE YOU? More to the point, how do the staff who will be attending this presentation with you get your customers to LOVE YOU? Larry Johnson will show you how.
