Get Customers Hooked


Here are six tips for turning happy customers into an army of brand advocates:

1. Turn receipts into customer feedback questionnaires.

Your in-store purchase receipts are a guaranteed point-of-contact with most satisfied customers. Think about it: they’ve liked your products enough to buy them.

The conditions to qualify for the different incentives vary, as do the investment incentives themselves–e.g., a tax holiday, or import duty exemption, or a combination of both.
