Get to Know Your Customers Day

Did you know that January 16, 2020 is Get to Know your Customers Day? With this important day coming up, we thought we’d share with you a roundup of blog posts that can aid you in familiarizing with your customers.

Get to Know Your Customers Day

This day happens once every quarter, on the third Thursday of January, April, July, and October. (For the exact dates and even more observances, see our full, year-round Marketing Calendar.)

The Importance of Getting to Know Your Customers

Getting to know your customers reinforces that you value them.  You may know inherently that you value them, but unless they themselves feel valued, you’ll be missing that important connection that allows you to effectively serve and market to them.

When you familiarize yourself with the person behind each customer, it’s a win-win. It allows you to

  • Stay on top of their needs (good for them) which builds trust (good for you)
  • Continually improve on your customer service (good for them) which keeps them coming back (good for you)
  • Identify opportunities for personalized marketing (good for you) which makes customers feel even more valued (good for them).
