Existing customers should NOT be taken for granted. In fact, you should be actively finding ways to enhance the customer experience of those who already buy from you.

A business needs customers to be successful, right? It’s quite an obvious fact, I know. However, many business owners take existing customers for granted and assume they will continue to attract them.

Many business owners unknowingly fail to capitalise on existing customers with repeat business and referrals.

One way to encourage them, without you even asking, is to focus on the customer experience. Which is why I thought I would share with you some of the ways you can improve this aspect of your business.

Be engaging and responsive on social media

Social media is the way forward for people these days. Many users, and your existing customers check their feeds on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram a few times each day.

So being present online through social media is actually one of the best marketing tools you have. However, many businesses miss a huge trick. It is all well and good being consistent and sharing content, but if you don’t respond to your customers or people who took the time to comment or ask you something, then you are missing out on new customers.

People want to feel valued, and showing appreciation and responding to comments, likes, shares and direct messages is a great to improve your customer experience. NOt to mention humanising your business and making it approachable.
