About the course
Customers are everything, but they are NOT all equal.
In the new 27/7/365, always-on world we live in, the organisation that takes best care of its customer will prevail, BUT. It has to be the right care and the right customers. 80% of the average company’s profits will come from (usually less than) 20% of their customers, and 80% of losses will come from another 20%. Knowing which is which is and tailoring your strategy and sales and Marketing approaches accordingly, is the key to success. ‘Shotgun Marketing’ no longer works, we know have to get a lot smarter and a lot more targeted. The rewards are there if we do.
