Tiny Tip: take today as it comes

Thank you

Today marks Thanksgiving in the US. If you celebrate it, happy Thanksgiving to you. If you don't, happy Thursday-before-Black-Friday. Official holiday or not, today's a good day to be thankful for who you have in your life and how you can help them. That includes family, friends, employees, and customers....

The holiday season can be chaotic. To help out, I've given every Repeat Customer Insights store access to the 4th quarter reports, no matter what subscription plan.

Avoid 3rd party review websites to build customer loyalty

Customer reviews are important to build trust with new customers. Often times it might appear easier to use a 3rd party review website to collect and show reviews. They might even promise increased traffic due to their marketplace or the like. 3rd party review websites are a trap. The list...

Customer service is your loyalty safety net

Customer loyalty is the customer's trust in your company. Like anything else trust-based, it can take a long time to build up and only moments to destroy. The big killer of loyalty is bad customer service. Usually by the time customer service is contacted, something is wrong or the customer...

Give your most loyal customers early access to Black Friday deals

Every year I see stores starting their Black Friday earlier and earlier in the month, or even in October. A tactic that might work better in the long-term is to offer early access as a perk to your loyal customers. Instead of just discounting everything early, you give your most...
