Are You Nurturing Existing Customer Relationships?
It is vital now to look after your existing customers, even more so than ever before. They will be feeling the same insecurities and fears as you.
Whatever you can do to help and support will be appreciated. Do this well and you will be rewarded with loyalty in return; this is an opportunity to turn existing customers into lifetime customers. Other companies in your market will almost certainly not be doing this!
