The Grip Story – Customers For Life

What is the purpose of a business? Every time I ask this question, the immediate answer I get back is: “To make a profit.” In my opinion, this answer is wrong. The real purpose of a business is to create and keep a customer. If a business successfully creates and keeps customers in a cost-effective way, it will make a profit while continuing to survive and thrive. If, for any reason, a business fails to attract or sustain a sufficient number of customers, it will experience losses. Too many losses will lead to the demise of the enterprise. Customers for Life – What does that mean exactly? It means being constantly dedicated to doing the right thing for our customers. Simply put, it means we want to keep our customers for life. Anyone can sell a tool, but we expect more from our team – we expect them to go above and beyond to provide not just average service, but exceptional service — every time. It requires dedication. It requires commitment. And we will continue to work to earn Customers for Life in every aspect of our business.
