3 Phrases That Will Leave You Thinking (Part II)

A while ago I shared the analysis of three quotes from personalities of well-known brands. Why? Because they synthesize a lot of wisdom in a simple and attractive way.

We’ve established that keeping a customer is much more cost-effective than getting a new one. This is why facilitating ways of evaluating and communicating with your customers is essential to keep them with you.

A service channel doesn’t guarantee that the dissatisfied customer will stay, but at least you’ll know. If you don’t have it…
