The Power of Customer Retention Infographic

March 22, 2013 | Posted in Event Tips, Infographics

According to the Harvard Business Review the average American business loses 50% of its customers every five years with two-thirds of them citing inadequate customer care as their primary reason for leaving. Additionally, 91% of small businesses do nothing to retain their existing clients.

Those are some astonishing statistics!

Another study says that, “73% of customers leave because they are dissatisfied with customer service, but the company losing the customer thinks only 21% leave because of customer service. The company losing the customer thinks 48% leave because of price, when in fact only 25% do so.” It’s easier to rationalize a customers’ decision to leave by blaming it on cost but often times it’s because we didn’t tend to our client relationships enough.
