How Can “Never Lose a Customer Again” Transform Your Business?

Joey Coleman’s book Never Lose a Customer Again: Turn Any Sale into Lifelong Loyalty in 100 Days offers tips on how to transform customer engagement.

Coleman shares his expertise on turning a one-time purchaser into a lifelong customer. In the initial days after purchase, customers often transition from feelings of joy and excitement to fear and uncertainty as buyer’s remorse sets in. Surprisingly, 20%-70% of newly acquired customers stop doing business with a company within the first 100 days. It’s because they feel neglected during the early stages of onboarding.

Coleman identifies eight emotional phases customers go through post-purchase. By understanding these emotions, businesses can apply various tools and techniques to build solid and lasting relationships. These include in-person interactions, emails, phone calls, mail, videos, and even gifts.

Coleman’s methodology is illustrated through research and case studies of best-in-class companies that create remarkable customer experiences. For instance, during the “Acclimate” stage, customers need clear guidance on using a product or service. Canadian software company PolicyMedical tackled this by turning complex installation manuals into an engaging puzzle for customers to complete.

In the “Adopt” stage, companies can publicly and privately recognize customers. Sephora, for example, rewards its VIB Rouge members with a metallic membership card and a particular shade of lipstick.

In the final stage, “Advocate,” loyal customers are ready to provide referrals. MastermindTalks, an elite entrepreneurial event, keeps its community engaged by offering amazing referral bonuses, ensuring continued loyalty and perfect referrals.

Never Lose a Customer Again is an excellent guide for business owners, CEOs, managers, sales and marketing teams, account managers, and customer service representatives. The book offers easy-to-implement steps that lead to lasting change, increased profits, and lifelong customer retention.
