Pro-active Strategies

�        Actively look at implementing some of these proactive strategies

�        Supplying better quality goods or over-servicing

�        Ensuring speedy delivery. If a customer orders today by direct mail, they are always impressed if the goods are there the next day. This sets the tone for the entire organization

�        Offering after sales discounts

�        Realigning product development to customer needs. This could take the form of a pro-active questionnaire that asks the customer what they liked and did not like. And then setting a product development plan from this feedback

�        Access to additional services or goods as a reward for being a good customer

�        Follow up with a simple customer service call - "we care about our customer"

�        Supply a bonus gift with the sale
