Customer loyalty goes far beyond collecting points on a loyalty card. Today customers intuitively consider their entire experience with your brand and products, from before their purchase or service commitment, during the payment process and crucially, when requiring any follow-up care.
That entire lifecycle demands a consistently good experience and has becomefar more important in the minds of customers than BOGOF, points and prizes. There is hardly a brand today that wouldn’t agree. But still some fail to see that a very small change in their behaviour – perhaps just guiding the customer a little more – could create far greater loyalty.
