Customer Relationship Management
Customer Relationship Management (CRM) is the capacity of a product or company to hold on to its customers over a given period of time. It looks at ensuring that customer of a particular product or business continues to employ that product without patronizing or defecting to other products or business providers. The ability of any company or product to hold on to its customers for a long period shows its customer retention capacity.
CRM is a relationship that starts right from the onset the customer makes contact with the company, and it continues throughout that relationship.
A fast, efficient and effective way to improve company revenue is company retention because the company doesn’t need to synthesize, lure and convert new customers. Sells are made to customers that have enjoyed some form of relationship with the business.
Companies that embrace CRM find it easy marketing to customers because these customers have shown interest in their products previously and as such, it is simpler to gain the advantage based on the relationship built. One peculiar characteristic peculiar to companies that imbibe excellent customer retention practices is that their profit rises in direct correlation with the duration of the relationship with the retained customers.
