Loyalty for the Modern Digital Buyer
Are your current customers loyal to your brand? Do they eschew
the advances of others, remaining steadfast and resolute in their
dedication to your company? Are they unwavering in their support,
true-blue and unfailing advocates of your products? If so, you’re one
of the fortunate few to experience that state of digital bliss.
Loyalty isn’t something that’s manufactured; it comes only as a result of being a constant, dependable and useful presence in the lives of consumers, from the initial awareness phase to conversion and retention.
