The goal of every company is to make money, right? Well, to a degree, it’s true. Companies need to generate revenue to thrive, however, it can be damaging to focus solely on generating revenue without prioritizing what should be the top goal: taking care of your customers. It can be easy for companies to take their customers for granted, but this can be extremely dangerous. Without customers, a company will never survive. In a recent article, Himanshu Agarwal discusses how having a customer-centric business will not only lead to higher customer satisfaction and customer loyalty, it will ultimately lead to generating more profits. The article provides the following reasons why prioritizing customer satisfaction leads to higher revenue and other benefits.
1) Customers want a personalized experience that makes them feel like they’re more than another sale for a company. If you truly care about your customers and it shows, people will be more likely develop loyalty to your company and return for future purchases.
2) Most companies have internet presence on social media, websites, etc. However, Agarwal says that taking a customer-centric mindset and transferring it to the web can differentiate your company from others. If companies treat social media the same way they treat traditional call center services and respond to customers as quickly as possible, the customers will be more likely to return.
3) Having a customer-first mindset as the central goal of a company can help unite all employees across departments. When everyone shares the customer-centric mindset, they’ll work toward the same goal of improving the customer journey.
4) Being customer-centric includes listening to feedback and taking action based on that feedback. Agarwal points out that when companies take customer feedback seriously and actually respond to it, it can lead to innovative solutions that better the company and the customer journey.
5) When customers are the number one priority, they’ll know it and return. As a result of this loyalty, they will also share their positive experiences with family, friends, and acquaintances. Word-of-mouth marketing is one of the best ways to gain new customers and can save companies a lot of money that they would have spent on market outreach.
6) Happy loyal customers will be less likely to call a company with issues, and that helps increase efficiency in call centers. With less calls coming into the call centers, agents will be less bogged down by routine inquiries and can have more time to focus on solving more challenging calls.
