In today's competitive business climate, aiming for customer satisfaction is no longer enough. Many customers who are satisfied with a product or service will defect to buy a competitor's product without hesitation, forcing many businesses to spend more and more money to attract new customers. To maintain a dependable clientele and curtail the expense of wooing new customers, businesses must go beyond their usual concerns with customer satisfaction and take steps to ensure greater loyalty. In this work, Jill Griffin outlines a six-step process for developing prospective customers into loyal advocates. Once customers have reached this stage they will buy a product or service on a steady basis, generate more profit than new customers, be resistant to lower prices from the competition, and recommend that product to their friends.

"In this revised edition, author Jill Griffin gives practical advice on garnering loyalty from customers. She explains that oftentimes "more thought and preparation goes into how to get the telephone to ring (strategy), than what to do once it rings (execution and implementation)." Chapters are based on key points, including turning first–time buyers into repeat customers, preventing customer loss, and recovering from customer loss. Each chapter offers steps to follow, a succinct summary of main points, and ready–to–use tools for getting started. Customer Loyalty is a comprehensive resource for businesspeople who are looking to improve customer service and satisfaction." ––Source: Harvard Business School "Working Knowledge" List of Recommended Books
