Tactics For Maintaining Customers And Ensuring Growth

The relationships with your customers may not necessarily be the same as they were before the crisis, because they are now thinking differently about the partners with whom they work. They are looking for active leadership-based responses from their partners and confidence that will reassure them, not empathy. The focus should be on executing the key things that they need and getting the results.

Ask yourself how to create something that will give your customer an advantage later on. Making the business virtualized is not enough, because almost every organization is doing it. It is about finding different ways of achieving the results, investing in technology, and introducing new roles into the businesses that will increase the capability. Determine what their natural next step should be and then persuade them to take it.

Coordinated Engagement Team

It is time for collaboration, time to bring in more perspectives, and reach out for help within your organization. So, if you don’t already have one, start thinking about creating the coordinated engagement team with the people from different departments. They should share their perspectives and direct their coordinated effort to the conversations with your top customers. The goal is becoming more efficient because when times are good, you overlook a lot of inefficiencies. Because of it, many organizations realize that they are not flexible enough to adapt quickly to new customers’ demands.

Buyer Behavior Evolvement

The crises made a significant shift from wants to needs. Nowadays, everything has to be adapted to the new needs and to what is critical right now. Go back and ask yourself why your product exists in the first place, what kinds of problems it solves, and determine whether you are doing need-based selling.
