successful in the future. Where are your customers and how do you

• Once you get a new customer, how do you keep these customers when
they are constantly barraged by competitors of all types, sizes, and

conservative spending climate is also causing a shrinking customer
base. Consumers are still quite conservative with their pocketbooks,
and as a result, organic growth from current and new customers is not
growing as quickly as businesses would like. Business owners and
executives are spending more time figuring out how to go above and

out how to cost-effectively reach new customers — without competing
solely on price, which always ends up to be a race to the bottom. 9
