Best Practices for Managing Customer Relationships

Managing customer relationships is not just about collecting customer data; it’s about using that data to build meaningful interactions. Here are some tips on how to do that.

Adding contact information to a customer details page

Beje, you can mass update information for several customers at once. Pavyzdžiui, you can quickly filter customers who bought from you more than five times and assign them to the “Loyal Customers” group.

Adding several customers to a group at once

Pliusas, saving different customer contacts (like office, personal/work phone, or email) prevents you from miscommunication or losing a potential order because your sales rep didn’t see the relevant phone number on the customer details page.

Train Your Support and Sales Teams to Use Customer Information Effectively

Your customer information is only as useful as those who know how to use it. Ensure your support and sales teams are trained to use customer data in their interactions with customers effectively.

Support teams can quickly resolve issues by having access to up-to-date customer information. Sales teams can also use this information to tailor their pitches and offers based on a customer’s past purchases.

Ecwid’s Customers page helps streamline team communication by adding internal notes to each customer profile, as well as notes to each contact.

Jūsų klientai yra daugiau nei tik skaičiai skaičiuoklėje. Tai tikri žmonės, turintys unikalių pageidavimų ir poreikių. Naudokite informaciją, esančią klientų išsamios informacijos puslapyje, norėdami siųsti tikslinius pasiūlymus, pagrįstus ankstesniais pirkiniais. Tai ne tik parodo savo klientams, kad vertinate jų verslą, bet ir padidina pakartotinio pardavimo tikimybę.

Pavyzdžiui, jei kai kurie klientai iš jūsų įsigijo konkretų produktą, apsvarstykite galimybę išsiųsti jiems išskirtinį atnaujinto produkto pasiūlymą. Arba, atsiųskite jiems šiuo metu parduodamų papildomų produktų apžvalgą. This not only shows your appreciation for their loyalty but also increases the chances of them making another purchase.
