  • For every complaining customer, there are 26 other disgruntled ones who
    don't come forward
  • Bad experiences are passed on to 8 - 16 people

    their negative experiences.
  • 91% of disappointed customers avoid doing
    any business with you whenever possible.
  • 80 - 90% of dissatisfied customers, however, will stay your clientele if you
