This saves the time and effort required in researching a new customer base and re-customizing your services to suit their needs.
  • Customers value their experience with your brand more than the price they pay for your services. Research suggests that 87% of customers are likely to make a second purchase and are even willing to pay more for your services if you provide a positive and personalized experience.
  • Customer satisfaction also leads to positive word of mouth. Studies have revealed that word of mouth is among the most trusted sources of product information for consumers.
