4 Strategies for Increasing Your Client Retention
How do you feel when you lose clients? Definitely doesn’t feel good…for anyone. You’re bummed because you started forming relationships with your clients and because that’s part of your income walking away. The client is bummed because they were looking to get help with some of their health and wellness goals and now that’s not going to be happening.
So all around, not an ideal scenario, especially if that’s happening more frequently than you’d like.
But, how can you remedy this situation? You can’t force them to stay, so you kind of just have to hope that they change their minds eventually and come back. But that still leaves you having to work your ass off to try to get new clients, which is exhausting and not how you want to be spending your time.
So what do you do? Well, you shift your focus from always trying to acquire new clients to always trying to RETAIN your existing clients. Now you’re probably going to say, well of course I try to retain new clients. And our frank response to that is, well if you ARE actually intentionally trying to retain your clients and they’re still leaving, then maybe it’s time to try something new.
