7:40 - 8:00 PM: Susan Miller, The Serial Entrepreneur, presents "Customer Retention Strategies During COVID-19"

During a coronavirus pandemic, retaining your current customers is more important than ever! Acquiring a new customer can cost five times more than retaining an existing customer. Customer spending is at an all-time low, so investing in your existing customers will produce a better return for your business.
