Customer loyalty

Customer loyalty is key to increased growth

Loyal customers spend more, are more frequent buyers, and stay with you longer. Which is why it pays to invest in customer loyalty.

Customer loyalty is key to increased growth. In fact, loyalty is actually the master key for unlocking other opportunities: aside from generating add-on sales to existing customers, it helps you by reducing customer churn and by attracting profitable new customers based on referrals from your existing ones.

So what does it take to win your customers’ loyalty? Firstly, insight. Insights into your customers’ experience, satisfaction and current loyalty level. Insights, which can be transformed into increased customer loyalty and resulting financial growth.

There’s a difference between satisfaction and loyalty

Far too many companies have a blinkered focus on customer satisfaction. Because there’s a fundamental difference between customer satisfaction and customer loyalty: A loyal customer is satisfied, but a satisfied one is not necessarily loyal.

Customer satisfaction is indicative of current customer attitudes to what has already happened whereas customer loyalty is predictive of future behaviour. Once you have insights into the individual customer’s loyalty and the underlying causal factors, you can then launch a targeted drive to retain or further engage that customer – or even disengage from a detractor.

Loyalty Group has helped our organization to recognize our shortcomings and thus motivate us to do something about it.
Working with Loyalty Group can sometimes be a bit challenging because Loyalty Group’s approach is very direct. It can at first sight be perceived as an attack on our current working methods. After several years of collaboration, however, the conclusion is that this approach is solely due to Loyalty Group’s sincere passion to create the best customer experience for our customers.
