3 Quick Ideas to Boost Customer Retention

  1. Write a thank you Tweet. Think of a person who has helped your business in the last month. Get in the habit of saying thank you. You might just brighten up their day. Queue up a few thank you Tweets to trickle out over the week.
  2. Tweet a customer and ask how they’re doing – no sales talk, no ulterior motive. Be genuinely interested in your customer or client. It helps solidify that you care about their needs.
  3. Tweet, Facebook or Pin a tip. Send a quick message that is relevant to your customer’s needs. Make it a weekly or regularly scheduled action to receive the best results from your time.
