    meaning of a sentence

    I happened to see the following sentence but not sure what the underlined exactly means, and think I need your help who knows what it really meant.

    - I’d really like to know your thoughts on what we might do to earn some more of your business.

    Is there anyone who can help me out with understanding this?

    I appreciate it.

    A company likes to have customers, people who do business with the company. Many people believe that a company should do something to earn (to deserve) them using that company and giving them money. So the writer wants the recipient to tell him/her what the company can do to make the recipient more willing to do business with them.

    Have you read through the definitions of "to earn"?

    As your question is about earn some more of your business, paris, that would have been a great title for your thread.
