Customer loyalty is a weathervane for market success. Win the trust and confidence of people and that goodwill becomes assured revenue. At its highest expression, customers are willing to go out of their way to find your products and do your marketing for you. They will spend more – more often. They will be first in line to try new products and be first to recommend you. And they will always be eager to hear what you have to say.
But loyalty is earned not bought. It comes from knowing customers better than they know themselves and turning that knowledge into experiences that make customers say, “They truly get me.”
The ultimate aim is to make the entire customer experience – from initial exploration, to repeat purchase, to ongoing usage and interaction – as emotionally rewarding as possible. So that the customer feels that you are always true to your word.
The times demand new thinking and new formulas for success. We believe the time to start putting customers first is now.
