In today's competitive business climate, aiming for customer satisfaction is no longer enough. Many customers who are satisfied with a product or service will defect to buy a competitor's product without hesitation, forcing many businesses to spend more and more money to attract new customers. Jill Griffin is an internationally recognized expert on customer loyalty. Her groundbreaking book, Customer Loyalty: How to Earn It, How to Keep It, gained business best-seller status in 1997. She was among the first to point out that even customers who are satisfied will readily switch suppliers for greater convenience or lower costs and that companies must do more that merely satisfy customers - they must engender loyalty.
Now available in second edition, Customer Loyalty is a Harvard Business School "Working Knowledge" recommended book and has been published in six languages. Jill Griffin is co-author of Customer Winback, deemed one the "30 Best Business Books of 2002" by Soundview Executive Book Summaries.
