It can be easy to bury your head in the sand and avoid asking clients and customers how happy they are. 

But this misses a huge opportunity.

 

We all know that developing existing relationships is significantly more profitable than bringing in new business, yet structured relationship management can be the last thing we consider in the marketing and business development plan.

At ELE Global we have significant experience in helping organisations to better understand existing clients/customers, to identify key organisations for relationship management and development, to report on accounts, and to generate meaningful feedback that can underpin strategic planning, growth and change.  

Whether you need us to take the whole challenge off your desk and structure a research and survey process, implement new policies, procedures and documentation, or train your teams on best practice, we’ll help you to develop more profitable client relationships. Importantly, we’ll also help you to leverage this to better understand the types of clients and customers that you’re looking for in the future.
