6. Craft a personal email pitch (here’s an example) and end it by asking, “Do you mind if I send a link?

Taktical Growth Hacks - retention

Growth Hack #3 – Earn Up to 16X More From Return Customers:

Your relationship with customers doesn’t stop after one-time sales. Instead, fostering a sense of loyalty among previous clients can be a big boost to your business.

The White House Office of Consumer Affairs stated that loyal customers, on average, can end up being 10X more profitable than their initial purchase.

Bain and Company backed this idea up, claiming that retaining 5% more customers can increase profit by a whopping 25%.

To prove this once and for all, the Harvard Business Review examined Delaware credit card company, MBNA America. They found that when the institution cut their churn rate from 10% to 5%, their profits increased 16 times. It’s even more impressive when you realize that MBNA didn’t make any acquisitions during this period.

Keep your current customers happy, and you’ll reap the rewards.
