A study commissioned by the US Department of Commerce pointed out that for small and midsize manufacturing firms it costs five times as much to get a customer as it does to keep one. The study also showed that seven out of ten customers never complain when they have a problem. Those two facts alone are reason enough for manufacturers to get out and talk to customers listen to what they say and make some changes to keep them coming back. Customer loyalty works In this issue of Manufact-line we focus on how to listen to customers. You may want to spot little problems before they become big problems or you may see the chance to build more business with current customers. In any case knowing your customers has become a key issue in the late 1990s.
