Customer Retention is the key to Success

How RetailGraph Ensures Your Success Through Customer Retention

Hello,

In today's blog we will be share, how RetailGraph helped Retail stores and chains to ensure customer retention through customer engagement.


Today's story is of an elderly Couple Mrs & Mr. Joe who were living alone, as their kids were settled in other parts of the world.

They used to keep themselves engaged in daily chores . They have fixed their stores for long now and prefer buying items from them only. There most essential needs were  Medicines, Grocery and apparels, etc from those stores.

As they were the routine customers and were a known face retail stores and the store keeper takes care of there requirements. Mrs & Mr. Joe also treats the Store Keepers with warmth. 

This is a fine Saturday morning when they received a Message from the Pharmacy- "Wishing you a very happy anniversary Mr. Joe, indeed the old couple were overwhelmed with the message as the pharmacy was the first one to greet them on their special day.

This continued when they received yet another SMS from their Grocery store. These messages have touched the old couple emotionally as they can associate it with the long bonding they have with the stores and were glad that the store keeps customer relations.

Well this is just a small story touching two souls and reaching a new level of engagement with the customers. 

But this is just a single thought , just imagine if you and your store can connect with the life of your customers on a more frequent basis.. isn't it would be great.

 


  • A reminder of from chemist shop stating : Your dosage for the next month is due pls collect
  • A reminder from a Grocery store Stating: New offers and schemes on our prefered purchases and any updates on products we purchase.
  • Reminder from a Apparels store: About fresh arrivals, end of season sale, offers, fresh stock in your size. 
  • And yes there is a lot more with person wishes on your Birthday, anniversary and customized schemes for you and your family on your special day.


I know this is a little offbeat but i wish to tell you this. 

I celebrated my B'day last week, and was overwhelmed when first on opening Google it appeared as a Birthday wish with cakes and candles and later when i received an SMS from my telephone service provider yes  a gift of pack of SMS's free for the day as a b'day gift.


Well these are small things but when packaged and delivered at the right time makes a lot of difference.

RetailGraph as a point of sales software ensures that you retain your customers and have higher retention rates.

Hope you have liked the blog. Please share your comments.

WHAT TO LEARN OUT OF FLYING KITES

WHAT TO LEARN OUT OF "FLYING KITES "

Yes we are serious and will explain you how there is a lot to learn from flying Kites, and to use it to become a better Retailer.

Makar Sankranti, also known as Sankranti or Makara Sankrant, is one of the highly auspicious days in a Hindu calendar and the day is dedicated to the worship of Lord Surya (Sun God). 

Makar Sankranti is the day when the sun enters into the zodiac Capricorn or Makara. On this day people worship the Sun God and take a holy dip at Sangam which is the confluence of the rivers Yamuna, Saraswati and Ganga in Allahabad as it is considered to cleanse one's sins and attain moksha (salvation).

People celebrate it by distributing sweets, and in many parts of the country people celebrate it with flying Kites. Even many Competitions were organised on this occasions and enthusiasts participate from across the nation.

The game of Kite flying must have made many of us go nostalgic. Flying Kites was such a fun that most of us have experienced it at some point or the other.

Through this blog we would like to convey the learning from Flying 
Kite , i am sure many of you must be wondering on what can be the learnings that we should know at this platform where usually we write about Retail Software solutions, but yes we have extracted few of the points which should be learned as a retailer.


Come let us understand how can we learn different aspects in context to a retail store from the steps involved in KITE flying:
  • Pick your kite.---------------------Select the Retail Format you wish to operate in
  • Pick the right space--------------Choose the location of your store wisely 
  • Find a buddy to help  OR Help Yourself ------ Get Resources OR Manage yourself 
  • You should hold the ball of string and have your buddy hold the kite. ---- Job Allocation
  • Pay attention to wind direction ------------ Be attentive to Market trend and Customer Preferences
  • Release & Pull length of string as needed ----- Optimized use of resources to Balance your business
While enjoying flying a kite we never analyzed that we do so much, it's an act of balancing your kite in the sky while using your resources in optimum manner to cut down the competition and emerge as a winner among other kites, the same way we must manage the Resources to make our retail store more profitable and efficient in operation.

The other kites in sky are those of competitors who are there to cut your kite in the game and even you must  cut the other kites, remember, the more kites you cut, more will be your score!

In retailers context these other kites in the sky were the other retailers in the marketplace as competitors using their own strings (resources) to win and gain more customers. The Way you cut the kites in the game, you must work towards attracting more customers and cutting down your competition.

How to cut kites and your competition 
  • Skillful resource for flying a KITE -------- Software Solution and Mindset of Store Owner
  • Steady KITE (patang) ---------------- Availability of good products and services to offer
  • Importantly strong and sharp thread ( Manja)------- Software Solution to Manage Store Operations
As the cutting other kites is required to win the game of kite flying, the same way handling competition and serving customers to become a market leader in your domain requires efficient and effective use of resources.
