Customers for Life Podcast
80% of businesses believe they deliver 'superior' customer service, yet only 8% of their customers agree. That's mad! You could drive a freight train through that statistic. And this is exactly why we created this podcast. Businesses need a whack across the head on where money is leaking (or in some cases gushing) out in the form of fair to middling customer interaction that creates indifferent customers. We're going to show you how to increase profits with zero or low cost tactics to retain the customers you worked hard to attract.
