|From relational marketing to customer management : A change of perspective|
From a technical view centered on marketing tools (including loyalty programs) to a strategic and organizational approach centered on customer management
Themes - 1) introduction to the main ideas and concepts of customer management ; 2) examples of good practices ; 3) short presentation of a CRM application
|1 – Course 1 “Customer experience and loyalty”|
For more than 10 years, product marketing is not the only rule anymore. It has been completed by a customer centric approach, which is sometimes even more important from a strategic point of view.
Nowadays client’s “life time” and “value” are the key words of marketing teams and leadership. They are even described in some companies’ annual reports. Their improvement requires a better understanding of the key-steps in a client lifecycle (“Moments of truth”) and the implementation of relationship programs that meet the customers’ expectations.
Some of the themes we will study are :
Why implementing a loyalty program and how to do it ?
The main program categories
Illustration in the retail industry
This first session will also be the occasion to introduce all the themes we will study during the next sessions.
|2 – Course 2 “Customer knowledge”|
