How Loyal Are Your Customers? HINT… Not Very.
Do you know who your customers are?
Are you sure?
And for that matter, do they want to still know who you are?
Brightpearl recently released their “Loyal Not Loyal” report that unveiled the realities of how consumers shop with a core focus on Millennials and younger consumers in particular. Among their findings included that over two-fifths (45%) of consumers admit to being less loyal to brands when compared to a year ago, and these same consumers are quicker to abandon companies that do not meet their expectations. Keeping this in mind, it’s critical for retailers – both online and offline – to not only understand the realities of how consumers shop, but also how they determine if they will remain loyal or not.
Expanding on these realities, Brightpearl also identified that 76 percent of shoppers report that it is now easier than ever to take their business elsewhere, with many of these consumers doing so based on their shopping experience alone. This reality – whether you like it or not – reinforces the importance of how consumers do not just want to be sold something, but rather appreciate the entire shopping experience of buying something. Fortunately, resources to help merchants do this both effectively and with entertaining value to consumers is now easier than ever – but it takes retailers savvy enough to acknowledge this to truly see the impact it can make on their brands.
