Grow Loyal Customers

Grow Loyal Customers
Kundenbindung erhöhen

Customer loyalty, customer management, customer journeys - they all aim to ensure that your customers have the best possible shopping experience with you, remain loyal and become regular customers. All the better if they tell others about it. Word-of-mouth is a powerful marketing tool that costs you nothing.  

But there is a long way to go, customer loyalty is decreasing and competition is increasing in many sectors. To increase customer loyalty, it takes a lot of time, a targeted strategy and properly chosen marketing measures. Surely you have already thought about this. But have you also included the possibility of automation in your considerations?

It is cheaper to retain existing customers than to acquire new ones. Moreover, long-term customer loyalty offers growth potential and decisive competitive advantages. The success story of our customer shows what can be implemented quickly and efficiently with the simplest of means. However, the possibilities to increase customer loyalty through automation go much further - we show what else is possible with three examples.

Increase Customer Loyalty - Best Practice

Our client - a fitness studio chain with several thousand members - faced a growing challenge: A complex voucher system coupled with memberships, 10-packages and separately bookable fitness courses. At the end of each month, customers whose 10-pack or subscription would expire in the coming period were systematically reminded. This activity tied up enormous human resources every month.

Together with the client, we developed an automated reminder process. The e-mail notifications to several thousand customers who had expiring subscriptions or seminar vouchers are now sent automatically at the end of the month. This has sustainably increased customer loyalty and at the same time reduced personnel costs.  

This example shows which simple automations can have an immediate, significant effect. Existing processes in your company can thus be made more efficient and profitable. However, the possibilities and potential for increasing customer loyalty through automation are just beginning at this point.

Increase Customer Loyalty - Potentials

One of the most obvious automations to increase customer loyalty are automated response emails. When customers register online or make a purchase, a generated email is immediately sent to the specified email address.  

Personalized Email Marketing to Increase Customer Loyalty

This email can be individualized in the next step and thus create a connection right from the first interaction. The triggers of such an email can be individually determined and shape the customer relationship positively from the start. The entire process does not require any human resources. The chances of success of such emails are also considerably high. Higher click rates, increased turnover and also larger purchase volumes of such customers can be achieved through automated emails.

Another special feature is the possibility to individually adapt automated emails to the different phases of the customer journey. This means that customers only receive relevant emails that match the respective status of the customer relationship. After all, customers have different needs and wishes during the different phases of the customer journey. This can be addressed individually.

Individualized Customer Support in Real Time

One promising way to use automation to strengthen customer loyalty is customer support. Constant accessibility via all relevant channels, including social media, can be guaranteed. Customers receive answers in real time and enjoy customer support at exactly the right time - at the time of purchase.  

If the right forms are provided online, a stronger commitment can also be created. Automatically generated offers can then be implemented immediately.  

Automation of Your E-Commerce Shop

By automating your online shop, customers are shown individual products that are relevant to you. Buyer enquiries, such as the current order status, refunds or cancellations, can also be set up automatically. If customers register on your website, you can use social media to segment the target group and show personalized offers to similar customers. Product recommendations can thus be personalized based on interests and needs.

These three examples only scratch the surface of what is possible. We believe that all digital interaction between your customers and your company can be automated. We would be happy to discuss with you the individual possibilities of your processes to increase customer loyalty. We will analyze your internal processes, uncover potentials and follow your wishes for the implementation of selected automation processes to increase customer loyalty.
