"How do you win consumer loyalty in today's economy? Merely satisfying a customer won't result in a loyal customer. It's not enough to meet or even exceed a consumer's needs once and then slack off into business as usual. Loyalty is the fruit of a focused, continuous, well-executed plan of relationship building." -- Bryan Bergeron
Whether you're a traditional brick and mortar Fortune 1000 company with an evolving presence or a dotCom startup, the number one challenge in this era of consumerism is building consumer loyalty. Today, consumers are armed with more and more Internet-fueled information and newly acquired sophistication. Make no mistake: they are not predisposed to loyalty. They are drawn to convenience: lowest price, shortest time to delivery and highest quality service. You can't expect customer loyalty - you have to earn it. Fortunately, every customer contact is an opportunity to improve upon a customer relationship and to learn more about customer needs.
So asserts author and Emotionally Intelligent Interface (EII) designer Dr. Bryan Bergeron in this groundbreaking book that explains why EII's are such a critical factor for eCommerce success - and how to take advantage of today's EII technology to more effectively build long and lasting customer relationships.Review:
