Mending Broken Ties

break(great for any design)

The key factor in any business model is the company’s ability to build relationships with current and potential customers. After all, if there isn’t anyone willing to do business with you, chances are your company won’t stay afloat for very long. The majority of the time, customer and client transactions occur without any issues, but every now and again you will find yourself facing an unhappy customer.

What do you do then?

Some may say to cut ties and find another customer to please, but is that the best idea?  Probably not. A recent article discusses the importance of trying to fix broken customer relationships. Though swaying a disgruntled customer may by a daunting task, it is ultimately beneficial for your company. Being able to reach out to your customer or client and offer a more positive experience has the potential to affect future business. Think of it gaining back someone’s trust. It will be hard at first, but once you can get it back, the relationship could be stronger than before.

The Marketing Hourglass

The idea of the of the marketing funnel is practiced in many businesses. It’ s the process of filling the funnel with potential leads using advertising and promotions and pushing the potential customers through the bottom. While it is good to practice, the people at Duct Tape Marketing have found a new, and possibly better, way to approach the marketing funnel – turn it into an hourglass.

The hourglass offers the chance to collect those potential customers that got through the funnel and begin to develop an ongoing relationship with them. Take a look at the graphic below for more info!

What do you think? Do you think the idea of the hourglass is superior to the funnel?
