25 helpful reminders to enhance Customer Happiness
It’s time for us to nudge you a little with some quick reminders about your customer relationship.
Christmas is the perfect time for retailers to tell customers that they care. As the holiday is quickly approaching, merchants should refocus on their customers and surprise them with a new approach and certainly with more emotion and attention.
Tip 1 — Black Friday was a hit for retailers in Europe so it’s probably time to rethink the customer strategy in order to update the approach, messaging and objectives.
Tip 2 — Segment your customers in order to be as attractive as possible; With segmentation you learn about your brand positioning, can localize customers, understand behaviors, adapt content, etc.

Tip 6 — Don’t focus just on your products. Even though it is a key sales period, don’t just think about pushing your products. Find out their interests and send them recommendations by email, wrapped up in a nice template, to help them find new ideas for presents; That would help them a lot!
