Growing your customers
It is a wonderful thing when more of your customers buy more of your services more often. And its not easy to get that to happen. Reaching the right customer with the right offer is paramount.
Implementation of your growth strategies begins with customer profiling activities. This scores customers and prospects who fit your target profile, in the markets you select via the optimal channel for each target.
Your business will maximise every marketing dollar by targeting only those customers who represent profitable and sustainable relationships.
With in-depth customer profiling SEMA, will reveal insights to assist with refining your message at any communication point to deliver the greatest impact.
SEMA can create customer profiles and examine customer segments for a variety of behaviours. Through our closed-loop approach, all learnings are fed back in the marketing process.
Acquisition is only one part of customer management, and needs to integrate with your business. SEMA can assist with the development of an overall customer management strategy including acquiring new customers and retaining them.
Retaining your customers
Increasingly, SEMA is seeing a growth in customer centricity as there is the recognition that a company's customer base is its most important asset. However, it is not retention at any cost, but retention of the right customers – profitable over the customer lifetime value.
SEMA's experience has taught us that acquiring a new customer can cost six to seven times more than retaining an existing customer. But why does it so often appear that businesses take existing customers for granted and focus their energies more on chasing after new ones?
Perhaps it is because we don't know what our existing customers think so we are unsure how to approach them to buy more, or it's simply because our marketing efforts are designed to acquire rather than retain customers?
Whatever the reasons, it is obvious that attention to a customer retention program is 'working smarter, not harder'.
SEMA understands that retaining profitable customers is driven from knowledge of the customer, but this can be difficult especially when you consider the multitude of data available.
By understanding the characteristics, behaviours and purchase preferences that drive decisions, SEMA can successfully tailor your retention strategies to increase your customer loyalty and improve customer profitability over time.
