Telltale Signs Your Customer Is About To Leave (And What You Can Do About It)

“Wait, don’t go!” are the words ushered out after a client decides to leave with no sudden notice. This oddly occurs with customers that nothing appeared wrong with, or at least that’s what was thought.

Some signs to identify a fleeting customer are through vigilance of their silence as well as acquisitions and turnovers that are occurring. Silence seems like a good thing, like there are no problems, but that’s usually a telltale sign that something is amiss. Acquisition by another company or turnover via client migration could be in the midst.
