- Retention – Acquiring new customers is extremely costly, with estimates stating that it’s 5-10 times more costly to acquire new customers than retain existing ones. Retention marketing focuses on your customers with the goal to create repeat customers, and increase both their frequency of purchase and the average order volume per purchase.
Offering personalized deals to customers based on their purchases can help retain a customer, continuously bringing them back .
- Referrals – Referral marketing is word of mouth marketing. Loyal customers are likely to refer to your business and products. Encouraging your customers to tell their friends about you is also a strategy of referral marketing.
Having a personal relationship with the person referring you to a business creates an initial sense of trust. A lot of money can be saved with referral marketing because it doesn’t cost money, it does require providing a good customer experience.
