Service Profit Chain
1. Customer loyalty drives profitability and growth
Customer loyalty is an important determinant of profit
A 5% increase in your customer loyalty can produce profit increases from 25% to 85%
Loyal customers provide all profits and cover losses incurred in dealing with less loyal
Three R’s:
Repeat sales
Find out WHY customers defect (why leaving, why not repeating) ! Not just where
2. Customer satisfaction drives customer loyalty
Create “Apostles”
o Customers so satisfied they convert others
Avoid “Saboteurs”
o Customers so unhappy they speak out against your service
Symbolic atonement
o Every service might fail or do mistakes, they right thing is to fix it to get
customer loyalty. Try to atone for the mistake by giving something of value back
to the customer
( its good if companies see it as an opportunity to get customer loyalty )
