Are You Giving Your Customers Enough Reasons To Return
To Your Business?
Good customer service just isn't enough anymore in the marketplace in which we live. Times are changing and business owners are learning that they need to create such an awesome customer loyalty program that they are always at the forefront

Send The Right Message To Your Marketplace!
Follow up is one of the most critical elements of any business. It is vital to follow up at all times: your prospects, your customers, your affiliates.
Did you know on average it takes 7-12 follow ups for a person to buy from you so you MUST contact them regularly on an ongoing basis.
Look at these alarming statistics provided by the National Sales Association:
* 2% of sales are made on 1st contact.
* 3% of sales are made on 2nd contact.
* 5% of sales are made on 3rd contact.
* 10% of sales are made on 4th contact.
* 80% OF SALES ARE MADE ON 5TH-12TH CONTACT.
The three areas of follow up are:
Offer a free report, training course, ebook or newsletter so you can keep contact with those who don't buy on the first visit.
By keeping in constant touch with your customers you'll create so many happy and satisfied customers they will refer you to their friends. Happy customers are informed customers, less likely to ask for a refund and more likely to buy from you again.
If you want income-producing affiliates you must give them the latest tips, techniques, training and motivation with constant follow up.
Once your business grows there's no way you can follow up with your prospects, customers and affiliates by hand so you MUST set up your automated system from the beginning or as soon as you can.
*****ONCE IT'S SET UP IT RUNS WITH NO FURTHER INPUT FROM YOU*****
Thankfully in recent times companies have become aware of how important client follow up is and they have created autoresponders (automatic messagesemails) for this purpose to put your business on autopilot.
TIP: Avoid using free autoresponders as they usually include advertising for other people's products (sidetracking people away from your offer and helping you to look unprofessional. Remember, in business how you are perceived by your customers means everything!)
Once your system is in place you fill it with the emails that will go out automatically once someone subscribes or is subscribed automatically!
