How to keep happy customers coming back for more: 6 ways to increase customer retention in your children's activity business.

In a recent survey, over 90% of children in UK said that they loved or liked playing sports. Swimming, football, gymnastics, martial arts, and tennis came out top of organised activities with the 5-10 year olds surveyed. There’s so much scope for getting families involved with children’s activities and clubs in the UK, but how do you keep them coming back? 

This bite-sized article looks at 6 actions you can take to keep improving your customer retention rates. 

Offer Superior Customer Service: The importance of excellent customer service cannot be overstated. Prompt and effective responses to queries, empathetic handling of issues, and active engagement with customers can significantly boost customer loyalty.

Personalise the Customer Experience: With the help of booking software, like Wootzoo, you can gather data on customer preferences and habits. Use this information to offer a personalised experience. This could be through targeted marketing or by tailoring activities to suit individual needs and interests.

Incorporate a Loyalty Program: Rewarding frequent customers not only shows your appreciation but also incentivises them to stick with your activity. Create a loyalty program with attractive rewards that make your customers feel valued.

Continually Improve and Innovate: Stay ahead of the competition by regularly updating your offerings and introducing new activities. Keeping your service fresh and exciting will ensure customers keep coming back.

Build in Processes for Progression: Think about how your customers can progress to the next level / age group - make this as easy as possible and make sure you’re talking to your customers about the next steps. Also, consider how you’re encouraging holiday club / one-off session customers to sign up for regular classes. 

Seek and Act Upon Customer Feedback: Regularly ask for feedback from your customers and act on it. This shows your commitment to customer satisfaction and can help you identify areas for improvement. Remember, happy customers are loyal customers.
