Generating Positive Customer and Brand Loyalty

Generating Positive Customer and Brand Loyalty

Customers are your reason for existing as an employee. They are also the key element in your organization’s success. For that reason, customer service representatives must consciously go out of your way to identify and anticipate their needs, then address them in an expedient and professional manner.

Just because someone is a customer today, does not mean that they will remain so in the future. Unfortunately, consumer opinions in many parts of the world have shifted related to customer and brand loyalty. In the past, people often exhibited brand loyalty for cars, laundry detergent, restaurants, airlines, and many other items and services. With the advent of technology, global trade and easy access to alternative and comparable products and services, it is not unusual for someone to move to a new product, service or provider to meet their needs based strictly on factors like price, service or availability. The result is that many well-known major organizations and products have changed dramatically, evolved or disappeared in the past decades. Examples are Montgomery Ward, Pontiac and Plymouth automobiles, Eastern Airlines, and Steak and Ale and Bennigan’s restaurants. In instances where manufacturers have recognized the need for product modifications to address customer needs, wants and expectations, they have modified or added additional varieties to their product lines (e.g. Coca Cola and Pepsi, Tide detergent, Cheerios cereal, and Crest toothpaste).

In order to help ensure customer loyalty, you must place your customer first in all dealings and know your products, services, policies, procedures, and competition well. You must also continually seek to enhance your knowledge and skills while staying attuned to current consumer behaviors and trends. Ultimately, your goal is to be the “go-to” person and organization for whatever products or services you offer. You want to deliver the best customer service possible.
