See the full video on focusing on customer sources below.

“I think what really helps, if you’re looking at individual customers, there’s a whole lot of them that you need. ,” Marsh says. “Instead of looking at individuals, look at them as groups.”

Business owners should look to discover how new customers chose their company for services, whether through Yelp, a search engine, mailers, a friend, etc., Marsh explains.

“When you look and say, ‘How do we get more sources?’ because the sources keep on giving, whereas a customer you may only have once,” Marsh adds. “The goal is to get most of your customers to be repeat and referral.”
