What percentage of your sales come from repeat business versus first-time customers? Consider how much you spend for customer acquisition vs. customer retention. If you are like most organizations there is an significant disparity between these numbers. With advent of social media, your customers, now more than ever, have the power to drive new first-time customers to your organization through their testimonials and recommendations. It seems appropriate to consider reshaping marketing and sales strategies to refocus more attention on your current customers and all the associates that collectively support your customers. Your customers and associates are your organization’s greatest assets!
Event Design International works with organizations to build relationships with customers, associates and prospects through meaningful events. Incorporating meaningful events into your strategy is an excellent way to build those relationships. Meaningful events allow for your customer, and prospects to communicate one-to-one with people in your organization who are knowledgeable, who can provide solutions, can offer advise or be a sounding board for new ideas. This cannot be accomplished with sales promotions, web marketing, direct mail, print or broadcast advertising. According to MPI Foundation’s “Event View 2009” a survey of 920 marketing managers in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific, Event Marketing is the marketing element that provides the greatest return on investment.
