Boost your regular customers

Increasing the number of returning customers you have can have a huge impact on your business. In fact, by increasing customer retention rates by just 5% can increase your profits anywhere between 25% and 95%1.

So it really does pay to keep customers coming back.

Repeat customers:

  • Spend on average up to 67% more than new customers2
  • May be more forgiving if anything should go wrong
  • May be more inclined to tell their friends and family about you
  • Are more likely to pick you over your competitor.

To help boost your regular customers, we’ve put together these articles which outline some practical ways to nurture repeat business.
