The fact that consumers constantly shop from the same brand for a certain product or service group shows their trust in that brand. If the customer believes that she/he will not have any problems when they shop from a brand and that the situation will be resolved quickly in case of a possible problem, a bond is established between the customer and the relevant brand.
Brands grow and increase their profitability thanks to customer loyalty. Thanks to loyal customers, a base sales amount can always be achieved. Loyal customers sharing their satisfaction with their acquaintancesis one of the most effective ways to increase the recognition of brands.
In order for brands to be successful in gaining a loyal customer base in the future, it is important for them to know their audience closely, who was born after 2000 and is defined as the "Z Generation". Although this generation haven’t joined the labor yet, they will have the purchasing power to affect a large part of the market in the next 5 to 10 years. According to the researches, the Generation Z, who born in the heart of technology, prefers to shop by trying instead of online shopping, on the contrary to the popular belief. Therefore, it is very important for companies to satisfy their customers in the in-store experience as well. The brand loyalty of the Generation Z is lower than the previous generations. For this reason, companies need to work effectively on customer loyalty in the field of brand management. Here are 10 trending ways to gain loyal customers for your brand.
1. Getting to Know the Customers
First of all, in order to create customer loyalty, it is necessary to know the customers well. It is important to know the customers, analyze their demands / expectations and offer products for this purpose. Customers' perspectives may change from time to time. Companies that follow this change gain an innovative identity and offer products that meet their customers' demands.
2. Providing Solution-Oriented Customer Service
In case of a possible problem with the purchased product, easy access to customer services and quick resolution of the problem directly affect the brand choice of the customers. A customer service line that makes you wait on the phone for minutes interrupts the customer acquisition process.
3. Developing Methods to Make Products Different
Today, as the number of brands increases, it is a fact that competition increases accordingly. In order to stand out in this competitive environment, it may be necessary to differentiate by increasing the quality of products and services.
4. Creating a Company-Specific Style
Creating a different and remarkable slogan is an effective method in order to highlight the brand and gain loyal customers in an intensely competitive environment. It is possible to create a customer base by associating a catchy slogan with the brand.
5. Keeping in Contact with Customers After Sales
It is very important not to reduce the relationship between the brand and the customer to only product sales, but also to stay in touch with the customer after the sale. Following the product satisfaction after the sale creates customer loyalty towards the brand.
6. Getting Feedback from Customers
By ensuring that the relationship with the customer continues after the sale, it is extremely valuable in the eyes of the customers to receive their feedback and to consider and evaluate these notifications. It is necessary to receive positive and negative comments from customers about every stage of the sale, not limited to the satisfaction with the purchased product.
7. Identifying Loyalty Programs
Brands can increase customer loyalty with loyalty programs. There are many examples, such as allowing regular customers to accumulate points and then use those points to purchase discounted items, providing a discount in another product group for purchases over a certain amount.
Being honest and reliable on product information is important to gain loyal customers. In order to make sales, it is necessary not to give misleading information and not to make false promises.
9. Guaranteeing Customers
Customers are more attracted to products with a long-term warranty. Providing a warranty period in addition to that specified in the law increases the demand for related products. 10. Sensitivity to Social Issues (h4)One of the important points of creating a sustainable relationship with the customer is not to be unresponsive to social issues. Organizing various campaigns by following important social issues helps to establish good bonds with customers. For example, when big forest fires occur, to follow the developments in this regard and to organize tree planting campaigns as a company, brings the brand to a sensitive and respected position in the society.
