Keeping Your Customers After You’ve Acquired Them

Rick Reynolds of AskForensics Discusses His Research Into Why Customers Defect to the Competition

  • Why relying solely on your front-line account teams for account intelligence can miss a lot.
  • The best time to think about account retention and the mindset that can make a difference.
  • How "no news" is not always "good news" and why customers may hide their true intentions.
  • How to identify vulnerable and damaged accounts, turning them around before it's too late.
